I'm happy with my rifle and their service. They sent me 6 keychains along with my kit?

I thought his name was SC-Texas. Since the incident, he's included the pic of Darth with the death grip on some poor soldier. Of course, the soldier was labeled "M A Parts" and yes, the doofus doing the aerial dance was the owner who rashly assaulted him.

So, the lesson? Arfcomers don't buy from them.

+1, Check in feedback as well.



I bought a LPK, OD Furn and Complete 16" upper for a M4gery build. It was around $575 delivered, No complaints.


(BTW- M A Parts(www.m-aparts.com/) is not the same as Model One Sales(www.model1sales.com/))

I do believe people have had some problems with the chambers on their uppers.
Someone at the time said it was the result of using worn out chamber reamers.
Just passing on what I heard and cannot account for the veracity thereof.

I met the owner at a gunshow and he seemd like a decent guy to me.
I heard about the Darth Vader bit and there were witnesses but my experience with him was just fine.

I had a problem with the 16" lightweight kit they sent me, but the 20" A2 kit I order that I requested (Chrome lined and w/ .gov profile 1:7 twist) actually came with one of the same MOS uppers that Bravo company is selling for 400 dollars. I have been very impressed with it so far, and have about 2k rounds down range with it.

i thought there was some kinda incestuous relationship there like a daughter or someone ran one shop...

I ordered a gun kit from them for christmas this year because they make it easy to order in post-ban configuration and it was on the cheap. When I got the parts, everything looked fine. I was playing with it yesterday before turning it over to be wrapped up, and the overall quality seems to be good. I am happy, because I have heard bad rumors over in the build section. I'll be able to give more details after I put the rifle together and go shooting.

I ordered a 6.8 rifle kit. For the cost difference between an upper with bolt carrier group and a full kit it was a no brainer to go with the kit [ + $20. ] even though I mounted the upper onto a RRA lower with a NM trigger. All the parts looked fine except the gas port break out into the bore was burred . I cleaned it up as well as I could and just went shooting. I did have some FTF but when I got home I did some tweaking on the mags and I am pretty sure that will not occur in the future.

The last 5 went into 2.4" and really the first was the fouler down a cleaned bore and should not have been shot onto the target. The next 4 went 1.2 " at 80 yds and I am sure that reloads will do better. This is a 20" non-chrome. I am still breaking in the bore.

I bought a featherlite barrel and some tools from them in the past. I've got no complaints. IIRC the barrel was on the recommedation of OP so I believe that he has dealt with them before too.
