The uppers at PSA and Del Ton have dried up... Has anyone here had any experience with DSA Arms? On a side note their 11" with permed flash hider on a frontier arms lower seems like a super light weight scatter gun possibility :)

I used one of their stripped A3 uppers for my last build. One range session so far, with a lot of reloads, PMC Bronze, and XM193 through it. Custom STS barrel and PSA premium BCG group utilized in conjunction with this buiild. No hiccups or complaints to report! :cool:

Dried up? I've noticed lots of uppers on lots of sites are back ordered. Are we back to the panic days of 2008 when it took one upper 8 months to arrive at your door stop?

I have one of their 16" chrome lined, 1:7 uppers - I installed a Spikes BCG.

I also have for comparison a 16" DD, 18" RR bull, 16" Spikes middy and a Stag 16" carbine. Of the brands I have, the DSArms is one of my favorites. Seems to feel tight when shooting, feels very compact than the others, and seems significantly lighter than the others.

I already have one of their FALs so I thought I would give them a shot and check out their AR upper. I have only had one problem, the forward assist button has come off, so I have removed it. Since then I have had no failures whatsoever. I called for a replacement, their initial reaction was "Oh just send in the upper and we'll replace the upper with a new one." I let them know then didn't have to do that, just send another forward assist and they will as soon as they get some in. I feel their customer service is excellent.

I would have no problem purchasing another one.

I purchased a couple of the ZM4 uppers when they first offered them a couple of years ago. Order filling and shipping times were inconsistent back then. Some rec'd them in a couple of weeks; others like me took 6 weeks.
You may want to call ahead and see if they are in stock. I don't think their webpage shows live inventory.
I have a BCM BCG and DD BCG with no problems with Wolf, Silver Bear, or PMC.

I have a ZM4 complete upper that now uses an adams arms gas piston setup, but have not had any problems with it so far and probably have close to 900 or so rounds through it. There good uppers for the price.

I have a few DSA uppers, G1 marked type 1 and non-carry handle cut type 1.

Way better than Entreprise and Century. Very clean machining and nice dark parkerizing.
