your in the ballpark--- think special forces --with a crossman 1911 bb pistol-- think three day return policy!
the same fine smiths that built all those warped FAL's & a few years ago--
as for who made the carriers --nobody knows other than they were made back when colt was experimenting with outsourcing at around the time of the 08 obama gun rush.
the carrier is overly thin where the split is and the metal is overly hard -- the wrong steel and the wrong heat-treat probably. hell it could even be an import??? i thought all those import china steel carriers got trashed back in the clinton era???
the upper has other problems as the chamber looks --borked.
i talked to this kid the other day he said their offering him a new upper --even though his three days has expired! how generous!
i told him to ask for some free bandages to boot--
Looks like one of those cheap uppers you told me about, from Model 1 sales.

My old lady loves shooting.
Yup off too the range with a case of ammo.

HMMMMMM I see a clue that has a answer in another thread. I know I know can you guys figure it outthe same fine smiths that built all those warped FAL's & a few years ago--
One of the reasons im not a AR fan. The research and work to know who makes what and what is good and what is junk and what to use or not to use is exhausting all for a gun IMO is not that good to begin with. I know there are guys who know all the ins and outs and can doa quality home assemble but even then they some times get screwed. At a recent show there was table after table of AR parts and it made my head spin as to what was what and all that.
I bet the company name starts with a H or a V and those two companys are by the same scam artist who needs to be run out of the gun bussiness.
have a light beer-- on my tab! LOL!
i am wondering when this "special forces' company is going to start making AK's? they have screwed the FN-FALs , they screwed the AR-15 kits all to hell. there ain't many military type of firearms left to bork except the AK's and their selling AK parts now? --LOL! they even named the joint after them--LOL
i don't know if ALL their parts and kits are bad. there has to be some good kits as they have been on the market for some years now even with the name change every month it is too easy to connect the dots. it is the ratio of bad/trash/scrap that i am trying to get a grip on.
i think my pals WAG of close to 20% is pretty close. the bad thing is that some discover this the hard way. probably the disaster prone some what less than the stated 20%.
20% defective being correct the disaster waiting to happen is probably in the single digits.
that said i think i'll gladly pay that extra $50-$100 and avoid that single digit of "total fail" that might land me in the ER--
