Did you look at their website before you ordered an upper. They sell mostly chicom junk!

" M4 Style Upper "

Sounds creepy. Like something I wouldn't want to shoot.

Well you're going to get what you wanted because it's going to be cheap and will probably cost more money in the long run. It might work out fine though. There's a big difference between cheap and inexpensive. Cheap describes quality and inexpensive means getting quality item for the least amount of money. Here's an example if you buy an EOTech clone for $100 that's cheap. If you buy a new EOTech 512 for $300 that's inexpensive. Quality costs money and there are some very shady people that will sell junk as quality items.

I hope it works out for you ok.

Well at least he's out there punching holes in paper with what he can afford. We need more out there willing to join our recreation. Stgshen, do us a favor and get back with us after some time behind the rifle and give some feedback as to the quality for what you paid for. Lets face it, in this economy we need to pinch pennies and do what we can to enjoy our sport.

it's not worth buying cheep crap to upgrade. you're spending more money in the long run - when you could have just saved an extra few bucks and got quality stuff from the start.

I wouldnt worry about what these guys say regarding the uppers. If youre shooting paper, then you wont have a problem. I would call them and see who makes the parts, bolts, barrels, etc. I know some parts can be from companies such as Continental Machine and Tool, who is the parent company of Stag arms and makes parts for other companies.

People here will tell you to spend thousands and buy a BCM or Noveske, but they dont understand that a $500 upper will do anything a $1000 upper can.

One of their people once told me that there wasn't really a difference between airsoft gear and the real thing.
I decided to spend my money elsewhere.

So the stress from shooting a .223 can be withheld by an airsoft gun?

blah blah blah - you probably didnt even bother to look at the link before responding or have any idea of what you are talking about anyway.

there is nothing wrong with cheap ar parts usually - they may not have the best finish or the coolest engravings for full auto when they arent but they usually work well enough to function. No one can afford to sell an upper that is going to blow up in your face.

the iffy part is when you get into accessories or differing materials like plastic lowers. accessories because they can always blame you for assembly and plastic lowers they will make the same bs excuses for how they "test endless combinations of uppers they have no proof of"

I've bought more than a few parts kits for ar's and all of them that at least have m4 feed ramps work just fine.

I've bought more than a few parts kits for ar's and all of them that at least have m4 feed ramps work just fine.

Actually I did look at the link. I remembered when I got there that I had already looked over the site once before.

Both my ARs that I built are not made with the most expensive or name brand parts you can find. But I do buy from trusted sources... and having an entire upper with not so much as "m4 type" attached to it for specs is pretty risky... especially considering the price is hardly cheaper than getting a say.. BCM upper assembly.

Nothing wrong with cheap parts? right - just go ahead and buy any chinese made AR parts you can find, put together an AR and run it for a day... see how it functions.

m4 feedramps? what does that have to do with anything? Did you know LaRue doesn't make ANY RIFLES with m4 feedramps? Never seem to remember any of the LaRue completes I shot (which is maybe 4 or 6) EVER malfunctioning.




All that aside. If you had even READ past the first post - you would know that the OP knows it's crap.. and just wants some cheep parts that he will eventually throw away when he saves up to upgrade the things like barrel and such.

why would you buy parts to throw away? just buy the right parts to begin with and have it settled.

Here is an idea..

1) buy some crap
2) you most likely end up buying more crap
3) have a pile of useless crap laying around

it's just bunch of crap

Did you ask if they warranty their uppers? What the return policy is?

I went looking for reviews on AR15depot and found pretty much nothing other then some testimonials on their web page.

Was a big consideration when I went looking for a upper in my price range. I found that PSA had what I wanted in my price point, guaranteed it for 1 year, and there was plenty of reviews and web chatter about the company.

Now you may be getting a great upper at a great price and if you do please review it and give us feedback. Well if it falls apart after first use please also let us know so someone else can be warned

How in the hell do people fall into these traps when we have real vendors selling real stuff advertising on this site? I think it's yet another case of trying to save a buck, without knowing a thing.

that's right!
you can buy quality stuff for just a little more from local shops even from some vendors on here at CGN.

but people are impatient... end up buying some cheap junk on some random website and when stuff goes bad... blame the functionality of the AR and buy an AK

Thought I'd come back to this thread and see if everyone is done beating up on the OP about his purchase.

Not everybody has there pockets so full of money, that it's starting to fall out.

Some nice looking uppers on their site, maybe I'll order one.

I'd consider going with another vendor just based on the fact that they've been around longer. For example check out this upper from Palmetto, with shipping it's $415, which is actually $20 less then the ar15depot.com upper, although it doesn't have the quad rail. But then there an ad in commercial sales for a quad rail, $45 shipped, so you could get the Palmetto upper, with rail, for only $25 more. I think the Palmetto has a FN barrel, their barrels all come off the same line, so it's the same as US military gets.

Odds are the upper the OP is buying will do the job just fine, but it's when something goes wrong that dealing with an established vendor with a great rep comes in handy.

I'm sure that if most of you followed where the parts that are in your mil spec AR's actually come from you would be surprised. As long as a company has good quality control and uses the same grade materials it really doesn't matter where it is produced.

good to know. The .223 doesn't have much recoil - and you won't notice any heat until MANY more rounds than that!

So does the barrel coatings help with heat dissipation?

The OP has to be messing with us. At least I hope so.

There are some pretty decent deals in the market place on uppers all the time. Stag, Spikes, DPMS, CMMG are all pretty reputable uppers you can get new or used here. I'd be skeptical of any unknown brand unless there are plenty of reviews or experiences where the vendor stood by their products.

I've seen AR15 Depot at guns shows before and their uppers seem pretty decent at the time just handling them, but you can't really tell without putting rounds through it. The guy told me the stainless spiral fluted barrels were made by them right here in Los Angeles.

Still I'd rather spend a little bit more and get an upper from a more recognizable company with plenty of proven feedback from a large audience.
