I have to give credit where credit is due and Steve at Adco deserves it. I just received my Bushy M4 back today (Mon. morning) from Adco after sending it out last Tues. USPS priority mail to have my mini-y comp taken off and a Phantom 51C installed. I was pressed for time since I was attending a carbine class this week, so I asked Steve if there was anyway he might be able to have it back in time. Not only did they do a great job (looks awesome) but 6 days door to door, that's unheard of. USPS priority mail is usually 2-3 days each way, so you go figure. Amazing, you have a customer for life!
Thanks again!

I wish everybody did business that way.

I was thinking about canceling my Bushie order and going with an LMT barrel from ADCO, Eric made it sound as though he might be able to get the FS I'd send them on and turned back around in a couple of days if workload allowed. Well it turned out my Bushie barrel shipped out today and so it was not to be. I was really impressed by what they were offering to do and I feel these guys really bust ass to make a customer happy. If I can throw some business their way in the future I will. Seem like really good folks.

I got my LMT upper from ADCO too. Good stuff and quick work and shipping.

+1 from me.

I also had the y-comp removed on a 14.5" and did the perm install of the Phantom. The work was done fast and looks great. If you've been thinking about getting it done ADCO is the place, you will not be sorry. Thanks guys, you've helped me become more "evil".

Do I need to call them before I send them an upper to have the barrel threaded or can I just send it in with a note telling them what I want and a cc#?
Link Posted: 9/27/2004 3:45:34 PM EDT
Man, what an Adco love-fest going on here....

Here's the work they did for me - totally pleased:

They must have a great repuation, especially since my lone dissenting post was zapped. I had previously posted that they failed to return my email for a quote and it was zapped without explanation....

Not sure what "zapped" means? Of the 100+ emails I get every day, some do slip through without a response. Sorry 'bout that.

I've sent two emails in the last week that have went unanswered.

I just figured that you were busy or they got lost, judging by the great feedback I hear.

I also received my barrel back from Steve at ADCO last night (7 business days after sending it out). Great job, no machine marks and the Phosphate coating looks great.

Barrel is already installed.

I received a RRA upper receiver from ADCO that was not perfect. The gas tube hole was off center, and I couldn't make my YHM 2-piece fore-grip 4-rail line up with the pper's rail. I sent Steve an email, and within a couple minutes, he had responded, asking for my address, statining he'd ship me a new one. And a couple minutes after that, I got a second email from the post office that a mailing label had benn generated. Steve even put a few bucks cash in the box to ship the first one back. I will keep buying from ADCO as long as I build AR's.

I got a reply! I figured you guys were busy. There was too much good feedback here for it to be anything else.

Another +1 for ADCO, I sent my barrel out Monday to be threaded and got it back today.
Link Posted: 10/6/2004 6:55:28 PM EDT
I had them thread two barrels. They got them on Monday and I received a UPS shipping notification on Thursday. And the barrels look great.
Link Posted: 10/6/2004 7:28:55 PM EDT
+1 for Steve and ADCO. I ordered an A3 upper last Monday, asked to have the barrel shortened , threaded and contoured to govt.profile. Received it today and it looks great. I love the balance of the 18" lightweight barrel, and I can focus on the front sight!(it's a bitch to get old and lose your close vision).

I can't wait to get out and zero the irons.

Great price and service from ADCO

Link Posted: 10/6/2004 11:51:03 PM EDT
Yup ADCO is fast! I live in Hawaii and when I ordered my VLTOR stock, I think it was actually shipped that day! NICE. Thanks STEVE!!

Here's what I have and what I would like to have done: 1) I have an RRA M4 type upper with a fake permanently attached flash hider. I would like that taken off and have a Vortex flash hider installed 2) also on the RRA, I wold like a bayonet lug added, even if that means replacing the front sight block, 3) I have a SAM7 AK variant with a milled receiver that I would like the factory brake removed and add a Vortex, Phanthom, or A2 type flash hider added (if the barrel can just be threaded so I can remove the flash hider, fine, if not legal, I would need it permanently attached, 4) would like to have an ACE folder for my milled receiver AK (Arsenal Inc).

Can or are you willing to do the above, and if so, how much and what do I have to do? Note: on the AK, I would send the whole rifle. On the AR, just the upper.

Another +1 for ADCO. I sent mine away to get the Phantom installed. Was going out of town for a week so I asked if they could keep it for an extra week so it wouldn't be sitting by my front door until I came back. Got it back the very next Monday!

Great experience and a repeat customer here!
Link Posted: 10/7/2004 5:49:54 AM EDT
I've just had my first dealings with ADCO. I can't belive my order arrived as fast as it did! I'll be sending them a couple barrels to be threaded next week.
Link Posted: 10/7/2004 6:00:05 AM EDT
Yet another +1 for ADCO, their customer service is EXCELLENT.
Link Posted: 10/7/2004 7:10:07 AM EDT
Another big +1 for ADCO. I sent an RRA 16" barreled upper, which I had bought from them 6 months prior, to have an A2 installed, and it was 8 days from my door, back to my door. And it looks excellent. All of my AR business will be with ADCO.
Link Posted: 10/7/2004 7:51:30 AM EDT
ADCO is my first choice. Outstanding service and great prices. What more could you ask?
Link Posted: 10/7/2004 8:29:48 AM EDT
The only thing better than ordering from ADCO is stopping by the store. Great service.
Link Posted: 10/7/2004 9:53:50 AM EDT
+1 from here, too.

20" Colt HBAR upper- Turned down to Gov't profile, new FSB with nasty bayonet lug, and added A2 flash suppressor.

Great job, great turn-around, great folks. Bottom line: a great place to spend my hard-earned dollars!
