Just picked up what seems to be a well-built AR in 5.56 with an awesome trigger.....almost too light; it has a Mega Machine Shop, Inc. lower stamped Model SC-15 with a serial # of SAW 1XXX. The upper is a flat top stamped SAW Custom, with the stamped letters in the same size/style/font as the ones on the lower. It also has a threaded 16" HBAR with a slotted top/bottom compensator, and a metal forestock, and SOCOM style collapsible stock with no markings that I can see on either. If I can post this pic, it is the bottom rifle......any ideas or knowledge of this weapon, or seen/heard any reviews?

Thanks,

Jeff

Oh well, thanks anyway.

It's really sad that this type of reply has become standard fare on this site.

Thanks, I know it's not a Colt, Bushy, Armalite, RRA, etc, and I assumed it was a custom job; I guess maybe I should ask does anyone know anything about the manufacturer "Mega machine shop". Comparing it with my RRA A2, it seems to be as well built, with about a 1-2 lb pull on the trigger....can't wait to fire it!

I see I've been a member longer than you have here; I am also an FFL, and I deal in Class 3 firearms, so I'm just not some punk @ss kid asking stupid questions, just so we're clear.

Thanks,

Jeff

Mega makes only stripped uppers and lowers. I've built 3 ARs from them and they are IMO quality parts, but as already stated they don't make complete firearms so the OTHER parts may be really crappy parts, or high quality, depends on who built them to begin with...

BTW, I scrolled through your album you posted, very very nice collection I especially like that MP40.

Thanks! The guy who allegedly built this rifle (AR) is very meticulous, and had a LOT invested in it, so I believe/hope he spared no expense with parts....I'll find out how it functions when I take it out tomorrow hopefully! BTW, the MP40 is my favorite when I'm shooting just for fun, very controllable!hanks

You know, I can handle all the self appointed, all knowing yet often mistaken experts on here... but why do you have to be a an out-and-out dick?

As too the original question: Me thinks that someone is thinking that "SAW Custom" leads back to Ken Elmore... I am sure that it does not. Call Mega in Tumwater WA and ask them who that serial number run was for? Best I do to help you...

Brakes like that should almost always have the slots to the left and right. Certainly I have not seen every muzzle brake, so cant say for 100% sure, but I can say that every brake I have ever seen like that is supposed to be mounted with the slots on the sides.

While Mega is a decent lower, seeing that inexpensive scope and mag would really want me to take a closer look at what else he skimped on inside the gun.



LOL! The scope & mag were some stuff I had laying around in my gun room! I don't know about the brake, but it's not even tightened down at the moment, so I guess I was a little misleading with the pics! The scope is, in fact, a Leapers.......right on! I plan to break it down tomorrow with a friend who knows more than I do....

Thanks for all the info!
