Howdy!  First time poster but long time lurker.  I've learned a lot from this site and I hope to contribute and be involved.

I'm looking to purchase a used PWA rifle.  Can anyone provide comments as to fit and quality compared to other factory brands.

What's the story on PWA?  I've checked the Industry Forum and it lists PWA with Rock River Arms.  Were they bought out by RRA?  Thanks for any info.

I have'nt ever bought a complete PWA rifle, but I have 3 of their lowers and I like the lowers alot!  Yes, RRA bought PWA out, when the current supply of PWA's are gone there will be no more, they will all bear RRA.

Much nicer than my Oly.

It`s been said that PWA never made complete AR`s ,just lowers.

anyone care to comment?

But to answer you question the fit and finish on mine seem to be just fine and is absoulutly better looking than an OLY. I would buy one again. Also it does seems RRA bought the rights to PWA. Not sure about the full story on that.

I've built on 3 PWA lowers.  There are very fine and from the same forge that manufactures ArmaLite's AR-15 lowers...  Cheers, Cryoman
