You're rolling the dice on a crap shoot with anything like that. For your purposes it's possible it will be just fine.

+1 it's a bottom feeder vendor. Do a search for "Blackthorne" and you'll come up with all kinds of reviews on them.

Hesse, Vulcan, Blackthorne, AR/AKpartskits, etc.

Pick your choice, they're all garbage; why do you think he changes his company name every couple years? It's so people won't know they're buying the same crap over and over again.

And as pointed out; it's essentially an upper, a bad barrel option (IMO), and a Houge foreend. So you spend $100 on the upper, $150 on the barrel, and $50 on the handguad. Already sounding like a bad deal to me. Then you add on the ~$200 worth of bolt, carrier, and charging handle and you could have EASILY gotten something better quality and in better options. Hell, if you wait for the sales you could have even had a Bushmaster upper.

It's your money, but that does NOT sound like a good deal to me, and that's note even taking quality into consideration.

Be very wary what you purchase.....

Quality is questionable at best.....

That is all I can say.....

That's not entirely true as ORF sells all the parts except the stock and gas block, and I've heard that they have had some in the past but never enough to put them online - you had to call and ask for them. That may just be heresay though.

I also recall something about Hesse bought out a military overstock on the Galil's and was having them chopped down and imported in; then they were never offered for sale. A lot of people speculated that he was waiting for a more profitable time to sell them off; like when there was no other game in town.

Still, imported parts are not made by him, so the only thing you have to worry about there is being ripped off, not having your rifle clog up and blow in your face.

Friends don't let friends buy Hesse/blackthorne/akpartskits or whatever new company name they come up with this year.
There's a reason that company is always changing names...

Shop elsewhere friend.

ORF sells EVERY part for the Micro except the stock and gas block (and that includeds US made barrels).

I knew someone who had the NEW Mirco parts, including the new style top cover and carrier. Wish I could remember who it was now, because it wasn't advertised and was only for a select group of people (I think only open to members of a community site like this one, but a different one). Sucks too, because those two pieces and the gas block are harder than hen's teeth to find.
