So far so good. After 200 rounds no problems or warnings

The key-mod are placed in reverse/backwards. I believe this was done to aid in attachment not being able to be knocked off. There are no sharp edges, but there can be a little bite to the hand guard. The picatinny rail has the usual sharp edges. There are key-mod holes along the entire sides and bottom of hand guards, less the picatinny sections.

<br>The gas system appears to be sturdy and completely serviceable. After 200 rounds, no short stroking, no failures to feed. I see very small amounts of carbon deposits, no more than what I have seen with other quality gas systems.

<br> I would say it is over gassed (as most ARs) by the brass ejection pattern. Using S&B and AE eagle 110gr FMJ, I am seeing 2 o’clock ejections.

<br>The price has come down, I hope this is due to usual reasons. I cannot find reviews for this upper anywhere. I hope this one helps.

<br>I stripped a barrel screw by using the wrong allen wrench. E-mailed CS and within 24 hours they mailed out replacement screws free of charge!

Bargain price for quality upper Part 1 of 2

If this barrel is made up of and surface treated as stated in the description, then this upper is a STEAL at either price I list above. 4150 steel, MELONITE treated, 1:11 twist, mid-length gas system, free float barrel...are you kidding? These are ideal specs. Melonite/salt nitride is without question has better corrosion control, does not add material to the barrel, only treats existing materials, and is very hard.

<br>Better than chrome (do not know why higher end uppers till use chrome).

<br>The hand guards hybrid has picatinny where you need: full rail at top, 3" sections placed where light and sling can be attached (end of guard, both sides). There is a 5" picatinny section from muzzle end, bottom of the hand guard.
