FYI... PSA using 2 different buffer system lengths

  One also has to remember that what you see & hear on these Forums is when shooters have issues with a Firearm & not too much on all the ones that work .

   That being said , the fact that any Manufacturer that offers a Firearm for 1/3 of what any other factory Firearms are selling for , to me, is cutting corners somewhere & that in itself turns me off . 

   Not that I don't like inexpensive Firearms or that they are not up to par with the others , but it should make a buyer pause & think about it . 

  Feel free to flame me , all you PSA 308AR owners :lmao:

LOL, I think even those of us who've purchased PA10's and gotten them to run well are trying to figure out why PSA makes these types of changes. And, it DOES definitely cause me to pause and wonder why. To be honest though, it also causes me to want more of them. I sorta like the challenge of buying these things and getting them to run well. I honestly never thought I would like tinkering with them at all, but I've found that I really do. AR's are pretty basic machines it seems to me. And, I found that when I learned about them, and used that knowledge(mostly gained here from bfoosh) to make mine run well, it was very satisfying. I want more of them. And, if I have to tinker with them to get them to run the way I want them to, well, that's part of the fun for me.

I like the PA10s.  I have built 3 of them now.  I have one chambered in 308, 243, and the newest in 6mm Creedmoor.  All of them have required 50 cents in the buffer tube.  One had to have a little grind on the bolt release.  I have put the flat wire buffer spring in each, but wasn’t necessary.  The flat wire spring just makes everything feel smoother and consistent.  I put adjustable gas blocks on all my guns, so they got that as well.  They are identical and they all run great.  The 6 Creedmoor has a McGowen Precision barrel and is stupid accurate.  The main thing with the 6mms is bullet selection.  You can’t feed the long bullets like hybrids and VLDs.  I stay with the 108 ELD-Ms in the 243 and 6 Creed and get 100% reliability and sub-moa accuracy.

I have gotten all my PSA stuff to run correctly and how I want them to...

I am now convinced PSA is run by Millennials... and they have all the issues common with Millennials. ( no offense to any Millennials here.. )

Lol.

I thought that some of you might enjoy another point of contact for P.S.A., so you can tell them how much you appreciate the fine engineering they are doing.  Don't forget to congratulate the wonderful customer service dept.

Now this guy probably won't answer or even return your call but leave him a message.
