I have numerous builds from M&A from pistols to varmint and have had no problems. The only issue I ever had was resolved free of charge with a next day air delivery and that was for a bent charging handle.

Just stay away from Blackthorne/Hesse/Vulcan.......... and you should be ok.

I had good luck with J & T, I did have to restake my carrier key, but that was 6 years ago.

I have a J&T lightweight tactical.  No problems whatsoever.  Can't speak on the other 2 you mentioned.

I've bought several kits, upper receivers, barrels, other parts from J&T.  All very nice.

Both kits (uppers come assembled) have gone bang every time.

Alright, good deal. Do they come with the LPKs as well?

Also, are there any issues with mating m4 uppers to m16 lowers when you cross brands? Like RRA/J&T, Noveske/RRA. M4 feedramps... etc

I fed over 130 rounds through my model 1 Dissipator upper with no issues.  Mixture of Barnaul, Wolf, WWB, and Remington every 4th round all in the course of 10 minutes.  Cant say the same for my WASR 3  Don't shoot much due to ammo prices.
