Anyone ever buy parts (specifically receivers) from shark arms? Authentic colt? Good to go?

Gonna give them a try I think.

Personally never ordered from them. But I've heard they're legit.

Good to go, I bought an upper receiver and BCG combo from Chris. If you mention ARFCOM you can get a small discount I believe.

I bought an upper keyhole and BCG. They are good to go in my book. I'm gonna buy an M4 RAS when he gets more in stock as well as a 10.3 barrel. He responds pretty fast to emails too. I give him two thumbs up!

It was for the combo deal, one of the homies in the MK18 thread mentioned it a while back. Not sure if it's still going.

Just placed an order for an a2 upper and BCG with Chris, very nice guy. He did give me a ARFCOM discount. Ill update when I receive my order but very happy with his service so far.

Several times have dealt with them - always an awesome deal , great comms and quick shipping.
Never any issues at all.

I recently got a Commando upper from here for a great deal.  I'm familiar with the markings and they were all correct on my upper, but thought it was a little weird he was the only one that had them, and I don't think Colt lists him as a vendor.

Upper didn't come in the factory box like most Colt uppers, either.   Just something that sets off my spidey sense.

I just made my first order with Shark yesterday. His prices on Colt seem very reasonable and he has stock.

I know! Can't beat a Colt upper, Colt BCG, and a no name GI charging handle for $225 shipped. No use for the charging handle, but I'll take it anyway.

My order wasn't one of the CH "specials", he offered to throw one in anyway, I said that's the one colt part I already have, he says ok cash discount then.

Ill be ordering from him again.

This post inspired me to call Shark Arms
They're factory assembled Colt FBI uppers with BCG, Charging handle and matech sight and handguards.  
He also sold me a complete Colt buffer tube, stock, end plate and castle nut.

Very nice conversation with Chris.  He said he’s been getting a lot of traffic from arfcom

Might have it Friday or Tuesday

Just ordered a receiver, bcg, and ch from Chris.  Very friendly.  Told him I was a member here.... Upgraded my standard CH to a colt.  I'll take it and the rest for $225 shipped.

Update when order arrives.

Chris told me that alot of people on arfcom have given him business and hes glad about that cause it means more parts can come. I imagine its like allocated parts or something and the more he buys, the more he gets or maybe its just the more he sells, the more capital he has to buy more.

That's probably who bought the rest of those crazy cheap Colt FBI barrels.  I was planning on buying the remaining amount and then they were all gone.  $150ish per barrel.

I worked 15 hours of overtime this past weekend to compensate for my new upper.  I definitely didn’t buy a pile of goodies to resell

I so would like a couple more of these barrels , however knowing they all just came off gunbroker at almost half the price I paid for the first ones I just won't do it ...

When I went back to Gunbroker previously to grab a couple more and saw someone bought the last shitload I knew it was only a short time until we saw them here at jacked up fucking prices.

A place (forget the name) had them for $150 for a while.  People figured out what they were and now they are gone.

You sure as hell ain't getting one then.  Priced a factory Colt barrel recently, much less a special run for the FBI.
