    Here it is, bought this thing, been flawless since. Worth the price, breaking that extractor arm sucks. I keep my rebuilt kak bolt and a spare extractor arm in my grip.

    Definitely build your own, you get exactly what you need.

    I had a BCA upper with an out of spec gas port. Sent it back to them and never heard from them again. Multiple emails and phone calls and nothing. Had to dispute the charge on my card in order to get my money back. Never again for me, but good luck if that is route you choose.

    A friend had a BCA barrel in 5.56 on a cheap build. It had a very tight chamber. Have seen a few BCA's with non-concentric threads

    Spend the money on a faxon.

    Also, BCA at one point got raided by ICE. There are better companies out there

    After some thought, I decided to stick with the Faxon barrel. I think I finally have the build where I want it. As soon as I get paid, I'll order the stuff and post the specs.

    I think for the price, it's going to be a very nice little set up.

    I built a 16" 7.62x39 with a stainless Bear Creek barrel, the chamber was incorrect. they sent me a new one, not issues since then.

    I made my final decisions, and I ordered everything. Hopefully I'll have a working gun by this time next week. :D

    Here's the parts list.


    Spikes Tactical Spartan stripped lower
    Palmetto State Armory lower build kit
    - SB Tactical SBA4 pistol brace
    - PSA lower parts kit with enhanced polished trigger
    - Magpul MOE grip and trigger guard
    - PSA Carbine buffer tube, spring, and buffer
    H3 buffer (was not branded, but I believe it's a Bravo Company buffer)
    C-Products 30rd 7.62x39 magazine


    Spikes Tactical assembled upper (I think)
    Faxon 10.5" 7.62x39 Gunner barrel
    KAK Micro Slim Line Flash Can
    Seekins Precision adjustable gas block
    Spikes Tactical carbine melonite gas tube
    Midwest Industries SLH M-Lok 10.5" handguard
    Toolcraft 7.62x39 BCG
    Aero Precision charging handle

    I'm going to take the Vortex Strikefire II RDS off of my 5.56 AR and stick it on this one. The 5.56 is probably going to get a Primary Arms SLx 1-6x24mm SFP scope at some point. Until then, It'll be kicking around with irons.

    Well, everything shipped and should be here before the end of next week. I went ahead and bought a go gauge to test the headspace on it. I'm too much of a cheap bastard to buy a no go and field gauge too, but there's an easy way around not having those as long as you have the go gauge. I'll update the thread with pics of the build and a range report once I get all put together.
