Best you wait for a more knowledgeable reply but if I remember correctly "Vulcan" is the new name for Hesse. Is this the one you were thinking about getting? [b][blue][size=2]Vulcan A2 9mm Carbine Upper[/b][/blue][/size=2]

Stay far away from Hesse / Vulcan... do a search for Hesse on these boards, I doubt you will find one good comment. The name change fooled no one, Hesse by any other name is still crap! Scot

mike, I just got finished building an ar (RRA lower, JT kit) for a local gun store because the Hesse ar they sold a customer just didn't work and they needed to replace it. The Hesse upper had a gas block that would not stay in place causing the rifle to continually jam. When I opened the rifle, the rear takedown pin came out. I figured it needed a spring and/or detent. It had both, but the hole was really sloppy. The rifle looked almost new, so these problems weren't wear and tear, they were quality control problems. J

If you know what is good for you, you [b]WILL STAY AWAY[/b] from Hess/Vulcan and Joeken too. Check the AK forum for more info.

I have the Olympic arms 9mm upper, and the SOCOM block, allowing unmodified stens to work in it. It is 100%, right out of the box. I can't say enough good things about it. I haven't had one single failure, and I've shot some real crap ammo through it too. --Fargo007

I've seen where someone recommended staying away from joeken, I just ordered 2 lowers from them, did I screw-up?
