Anyone know about the ar15depot uppers.

http://www.ar15depot.com/uppers.htm

They look like a sweet deal especially the 16" with a rifle length quad rail (#RL063). I just wanted to know if anyone has experience with them before i go and and pull the trigger and order one. thanks.

They appear to sell a lot of Chinese made gear on that site. That should tell you something.

I noticed they don't identify a single item by a manufacturers name. Redflag on the Chinese knockoffs!!!

What state does your company do business out of? I didn't see it on your website. I just saw a lot of American Flags. Plus I would hope that a representative from your company would be a little bit better spoken/typed then what you have displayed. We are providing opinions as asked. Most speak from experience of bad purchases which it seems that your site may mirror. I cant say that I have know UTG to be of the best quality for an AR unless it is airsoft.

By state i don't mean the state you have listed on here. You can put anything. I know where the companies I deal with have actual store fronts.

The site was not visually appealing.

that thin profile fluted stainless barrel upper sure looked nice to me. I agree it was a dead giveaway the gentleman was not from the USA by the way he responded but that one particular thin profile fluted stainless barrel upper was so nice looking I'd be tempted to take a chance on one if the price was right. Maybe the owner of AR15 depot should offer to ship an upper to a forum member at a deep discount to be range tested and report back to the rest of us? Did I mention I just picked up 500 rounds of 223 ammo and have been wondering what I am going to run it thru

Dunno if it was a joke or not but UTG Pro accessories are now made in Arizona. The aluminum comes from Ohio.

Here's some funny stuff I found, here's a website talking about AR15Depot LINK

go down a few posts and you find a guy named "1911UMC" making some stupid posts like these

sounds like jelousy i look at his website and he has great prices ,and only has about 3-5 items of utg which the items are not bad.
if you going to bad mouth some one becuase you like spending 3 times your money on items that your issue .

if you have something bad to say about people ,you should just shut the flock up

and

you need some serious help you probably want people to buy from your website ,some people can afford a porsh some can only afford a toyota, stop destroying america with your stupid commets


well that was interesting...

So I went a little deeper and found a Calguns post also about AR15 Depot LINK with a post by "m1911umc", that name sounds familiar...

NO I WAS IN ARIZONA AT THE TIME AT THE GUN SHOW, IM IN LOS ANGELES BUT IM ONLY ON LINE WITH FREE SHIPPING


It could be a funny coincidence or this company uses shill accounts. Any which way I'll pass on buying from them.

I love all this dialog. Are we arfcommers skeptical or what?

Ban AR15 Depot.com. They sound bogus to me.

I can understand trying to hatch out a business in this economy. I am with other people here - Put some manufacturers names against the products. If it's from China...Put China. I don't know if it picture sizing, but some of their products look goofy.

I do see a vertical grip that appears to have a MAGPUL MOE picture. If you are selling Magpul products, Superb on you, and I recommend you putting the name next to the product! If you jacked that picture, you are probably going to be contacted soon for Copyright infringements. Me thinks that is a NO-NO!
