ordered from them once, good experience overall. But I think it's better to call in your orders rather than place it online.

Guns N Stuff is another name for FAC.

If you check around, you will find mixed comments on FAC.

Personally, I have ordered several things from them this year, including a couple of their StG-58 kits that they had available earlier this year before they sold out. I had extremely good service from them, and stuff was shipped quickly.

I will order from them again.

Bought a DPMS lower parts kit from them a few years back. It was out of spec and I returned it. No response. First I was told they never got it, then that there was no problem with it, then that they sent it to DPMS, then to basically piss up a rope. To this day no kit. Hell may one day freeze over and on that day I will place another order with them.
YMMV, of course

I wouldnt screw with FAC myself. Those kits need headspaced after you put them together. Go to Model 1 and get their light barrel carbine kit. Cost is $415 dollars. No headspacing. Just put one on a Oly. lower. Everything fit and works great.

I had a pretty bad experience with them. When my FFL ordered my lower for me, they didn't tell him it was out of stock. Two weeks later we were both wondering where it was so I called them up. Turns out they haven't had the receiver for months and weren't expecting to get it any time soon. Needless to say, we canceled the order and ordered direct from the manufacturer. Avoid them at all costs, even if it means paying a few bucks more.

What do you mean need to be headspaced / DPMS barrels come headspaced from the factory, makes you stop and think. My experiance with FAC has been that they play with your money always waiting for out of stock merchandise to come in, have gone to several of there suppliers after being told OS only to find out that they have not placed an order with that company .

I deal with FAC a lot, I have ordered maybe 70 FAL receivers and lots of FAL kits over the past few years.
It's always best to call them when placing a order and have the sales person check if what you want is in stock.
They have some odd rules about taking orders that need a FFL from anyone but the FFL holder.
If I have any trouble I always E-mail Harlan and he straightens it out.

I have had good luck with them.
