Anybody know if these rifles are any good? Anybody got one?

I refer you to www.gunandknife.com "m14/m1a forum" for an EXTENSIVE discussion on MKS (from the re-weld saga/tragedy to their new and not very available forged recievers). From what I gather, only a few hundred people have these new recievers in their hot little hands and no-one has given the low down on rifle assembly and range tests. The only experience I have with MKS is their m1a scope mount and I think VERY highly of it on my m21.

MKS products are OK.
My MKS rifles were stolen 6 weeks ago.
They have the absolute worst,dishonest customer service in the firearms industry.
They will tell a lie straight to you on the phone,IF you can contact them.
They will take a deposit and not ship in a year,I mean a 50% deposit.
They lied about the BATF approval letter.
Get a ChiCom-at least they won't lie.
Get an Enterprise.
AVOID the kelly clan.

First off,I have no personal experience with MKS. I do know that rewelded TRW receivers ARE being collected by the ATF. The new ones are supposed to be pretty good. There is a review of the new ones over on Shooters.com highpower section.

Not just TRW's. All of MKS's cut and weld U.S.G.I. M-14 receivers are being confiscated. What a huge mess.

Sorry, that is what I heard as well. Guess I should reread my posts before committing them.

If these are the forged M14-type receivers, as of Camp Perry, they still had problems with the rear sight serations as well as the locking lug helix of the receiver.

Well it sounds like the collective wisdom of the board is stay clear of this company, at least for now, thanks for the responses.
