I know there are the abc's of ARs. I was wondering what the deal was with Olympic Arms. I have an Oly lower manufactured in 1992 and it seems like a nicely made piece of equipment but have heard a few people talk it down. What are the problems with this brand of lower?

Oly makes a great rifle!!
Try to ignore any negative feedback about them.
I have one along with the others [colt, bushmaster] and it does just fine

I was just wondering if there were any specific "problems" or if it is just a bunch of nonsence.

None that I'm aware of.
Any of the ar's out there no mater what one it
is can have problems at times!!

Just fire away and enjoy!!

I had an Oly/SGW "stopsign" lower awhile back. The fit was decent, but the lower's finish was a tad shiny from wear.

My lower is stop sign also.
I bought a new upper fom oly and
it's a nice tight fit. I even had to
file the rear push pin hole on the
upper so I could push the pin
all the way in!!

My M4 upper is a tight fit. I like it as well. It is in near new condition for being so old.

Some of the OA lowers had tight mag wells that didn't allow mags to drop free. My early 90's one actually works fine.

I never had any complaints other than some lowers having a tight magwell...
