I purchased an 16" carbine kit from model 1 sales for my first build due to being on a limited buget (getting married soon), and there low prices. And assembled it with a rock river arms lower, I have read multiple post mentioning how no one likes m1s. It shoots great patterns ,quality of finish and fit with the lower is wonderful. And it will digest any type of ammo you throw at it, Including wolf. I just dont understand, why no one likes there product?

Here is my rifle

Sadly, I believe that they have earned their reputation as the "bottom feeders" of the AR-15 food chain due to customer NON-service and poor quality parts. After reading up on Model 1 Sales, some customers had a hard time receiving their parts and it appeared that Model 1 had billed their credit cards way in advance of shipping the parts. I have also read where some Model 1 customers have had quality issues with the parts they did indeed receive.

Regardless, I am glad to see that your build turned out okay and some of the complaints may be a bit over exhagerated. I guess this falls under the category of believe nothing you hear and only half of what you see. Unfortunately, I will probably never purchase from Model 1 myself due to the bad press.

There are plenty of people here who have had great luck with Model1sales, and there are plenty of snobs who turn their nose up on anything that is lacking snob appeal.


If it works for you, that is all that matters!

My first build was a Model 1 kit and I have bought parts from them since that I am happy with.
Had issues with some of the parts. All documented on this form by me and others.
Took care of them myself.
All that being said looks like they have a member here (srt205) keeping a tab on things now a step in the right direction IMHO.
