Have the option to pick up a complete mid-length upper for $200, bought new in 2005.

i have a complete Armalite, 6.8SPC that is about 3 years old.  No issues to date.

Not sure that helps, but...

Buy it. I'll give you $25 extra for shipping too.

my 2011 era armalite 5.56 rifle has been flawless. a bit overpriced maybe but fit, finish and function are second to none

If it's a Colt it's a copy of an Armalite.


Someone's sig line. Larry G I believe.

Some early bolt carriers had a narrow slot that requires a narrow hammer. Don't remember when that changed.

All that is required is a narrow hammer, or a newer carrier IF it is a problem.

I have an Armalite AR10 Natioanl Match that is superb.  I HAD a regular Armalite AR10 that was an inaccurate piece of crap that I spent a ton of money and time trying to correct but never got sorted out.

For $200 you would be nuts not to buy it!!!! They (Armalite) charges that for a stripped flattop upper last I looked.

I've had several Armalite products over the years. Never a problem.

I have an Armalite from the early 2000's that is a Cadillac compared to my other ARs.
That's meant to be a complement...

I'm not talking Armalite.. just stuff thats for sale on the web. In building I reject alot of uppers because they don't fit tight & a few lowers, so you'd find the fit issue with anything its not an Armalite thing.

It is not an Armalite problem . Some uppers and lowers do not mate well . My experience with Armalite has been great . Besides they sponsored Cola Warrior 5

It's an A2 5.56 upper if that changes anyones mind.
Link Posted: 6/29/2015 5:46:30 PM EDT
Both my AR's are Armalite... 5.56 and 300 BLK.  They're not for sale or trade. I couldn't ask for better.

I have a complete 16" M4 armalite upper I bought over 10 years ago during a thanksgiving special. Love the upper, my only gripe is that it doesn't like wolf or Tula very much.

After a few hundred rounds I start to get stuck cases until I get in there with a chamber brush. Besides that it's accurate and 100% reliable with brass cased ammo.

Armalite has always treated me good.  I have never had a bad apple through them.

My first upper was an armalite. Got it during a Christmas sale in 2007.

Runs great on everything except on Tula. That stuff is underpowered

I also have had no mating issues with other company's uppers.

Anderson over Armalite?  Why don't you just pass on this upper and post the contact info if you really think that.

My M-15a2 choked on the weak steel case ammo until it was broke in.  Try storing your rifle with the bolt locked back for a while and see if that helps.

I don't know about changes to quality or CS, but I do like what they are doing with their website and their offerings.

Anderson is a prime example of the "two is one, one is none" philosophy.

I was simply implying that things have changed, I wasn't saying they're the best.  Most threads are about PSA, Anderson, Colt, or BCM.

I have an Armalite 20" Hbar that's over 20 years old.  I have had exactly one malfunction with it in those 20 years.  I fired a round and the next round failed to load all the way.  I did tap rack bang and cleared it and kept going.  Of course this happened on the clock during a competition.  Don't know what it was but its never happened again.  I would not hesitate to buy an Armalite anything.

I would have last year instead of the MI SS rail if they had rolled them out sooner.

I shot next to a guy at a Thunder Ranch rifle class whose Armailte constantly choked until I dropped a spare Colt BCG in it.  Didn't have time to figure out what the issue was.
