Olympic Arms at times gets an unfair bad rap, I have used their products and they are just as good as the next guy.
Guys in banned states: Remember, Olympic used to replace pre ban lowers with new lowers with the original pre ban serial number, once a pre ban, always a pre ban. I think the cost to warranty an Oly lower was $100.
I sold my Oly preban stop sign lower circa 1990 when the ban ended. That rifle becam fugly over the years but was always very reliable and very accurate. Olympic barrels provide great accuracy.
Just my two cents for a free bump.
