Hello folks. I've been lurking here off and on for years. I've had an Oly arms completed lower for about 8 years now and I want to put an upper on it. The one I've found that I like a lot is the SAM-R(ish) upper that Bravo Co. lists on in this thread http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=22&t=264454

I would apprecate any feedback on this dealer, 600 bucks seems reasonable for what I want to get but its a lot of money for me right now.

The only sticking point for me is the 1/9 twist barrel, I was thinking of a 1/7 or 1/8, I'm not sure what the difference is going to be in terms of bullet weight. I think that it means I need to shoot sub 69 gr bullets, but I can't remember. I'll try to do a search.

Thanks for the help.

Osborn,

Bravo gets a big multiple thumbs up from my experience. One thing that you will find from the vendors on this site is that they have to go the extra mile as it only takes one bozo who thinks he got screwed to make a lot of work for them defending themselves in a childish thread. A lot of whiners on this board. Do your homework, talk to Bravo, be very specific about what you want and what they can do for you, and you should be good to go.

I have a Bravo company MOS upper. It's a 1 X 7 M4A1 Upper. Bravo's customer service was great and their product was extremly accurate. The quality of the upper was as good as Colt or Bushmaster. I can't say any others because that's the only ones I have had experience with. Don't worry, You can't go wrong with Bravo Company for price and quality

Bravo Company gets a big thumbs up from me. I ordered one of their MOS 20" 1/7 A2 uppers a while back, and I love it. Im tempted to buy another, but I think they are out of stock on that right now. It doesnt get any better than Bravo Company.

I have the 20" with the 1/9 twist and it shoots awesome for what it is. Hell Im not that great of a shot at all and Ive managed to get pretty darn good grouping with commercial ammo.

Good to deal with, you will like them.

I placed an order for their SAM-R(ish) special today. The man I spoke to on the phone was really nice and helpful, and was totaly receptive to adding a folding front sight to the package. Now I can't wait to get it and try it out.

Waiting is going to be tough I think!

BC USA is OK. I only have one complaint - they only sent me one free T-shirt.

I got my upper today. I am super happy with the way it looks. I'll take it out this weekend and see if it will dance for me. I've high hopes for it.

Thanks for the input folks, and thanks for the good service Bravo Co!

My GF likes it a ton and I think she wants an AR also, so I might build her one w/a 16" barrel and a 6 position stock soon. If she ends up not liking it, I'll keep it for myself
