j427x, I understand what ya mean. I sorta rushed into my 1st build and I got a Model1 sales upper...from what people say its one of the better cheap kit guns out there. I havent had any problems with it and I've abused it at the gun range on a number of occasions. This other build I did (had done) was from Bison Armory and it has the much nicer stuff in it and on it. Stuff like the YM Machine Carrier and ITS Superbolt. I don't have the tools n stuff to build it myself so havin someone build it for is close enough to to call it built by me lol.
