Just wondering why there is no ASA section in the industry forum. I saw that there is a review of thier lowers and it seemed to be favorable. I personaly own one and think they are worthy of a discussion forum under the AR Manufacturers heading.
Just my opinion,
Have a good one....

Avoid ASA like the plague.

Their rifles are crap and their owner is an asshole.

Lots of us here have been screwed by them.

And watch people run for the hills when you try to sell your ASA marked rifle. You'll be lucky to get half of what you paid for it. Enjoy your made in China parts kit.

I've had mine for about 5 years now and have never had a problem with it. The quality must have been better back then.
I dunno,

Their uppers and lowers were supplied by LMT up until 2001 when LMT sued them for nonpayment and won $21,000.

Their barrels came from Wilson and the ASA employees usually managed to screw up the chamber and the gas port. Their small parts and furniture are made in China.

Is a LMT upper and lower good? I bought mine in 1999 or early 2000

ASA is junk. I think they were here for a little while, but then people figured it out. Forums here in the Indusry Section are paid for, they buy space. The Avilas won't rent to low class operations, and we won't treat them in a civil manner either, so it doesnt make sense for them to come here.

Colt doesnt pay for their section or have a Rep. here. They get the forum because AR15 is a trademark.

The stripped upper and lower receivers are the only decent parts on the rifle. Unfortunately, the lower is marked ASA which doesn't make it worth the aluminum it is made out of to anyone who knows ARs.

Ahhh I didn't realize it was a pay to play kinda thing...
What about this review from 1999?

http://www.ar15.com/content/products/lowerReceivers/asa/

I know it's from 1999 but that is when I bought mine. I hope they were better then. Like I said mine has been flawless.

Some people have played Russian Roulette and survived. That doesnt make it a good idea.
Link Posted: 10/9/2004 5:40:51 PM EST
I see. I guess that is why the review on the lowers was good.
Thanks for the opinions everyone.

LMT makes some of the best AR uppers and lowers

I had an ASA for a while..... VERY problematic. I sold it, bought a Bushmaster, and haven't looked back.

I flip past their ad in Shotgun News. I've read far too many poor reviews of their products and customer service to risk actually buying anthing from them.

I'd rather where an "I'm a HOMO" hat than wear an Oly hat. I wonder if Oly's hats are as shitty as their junk rifles...

None of you would have got jack shit if it wasn't for me. I will slowly break down your will and eventually, a charging handle here, a lower parts kit there, you will all be holding Olys in your hands....bwahahahahahahahaha....

What size hat do your wear? I'll get a "I'm a HOMO" hat made up. It'll look good on you. You're a pro AWB Kerry supporter anyway, otherwise you'd have too much personal integrity to own a Colt.
Link Posted: 10/10/2004 9:09:04 AM EST
So you would rather be identified as someone who takes cock up the ass and then licks the shit off of it rather than wear an Oly hat?

I'll give Da_Bunny some money for your hat....
