Dollar for dollar greatness

I have about 400 rounds through this upper and am very pleased this far. For the price it's really hard to beat. I have achieved about 1-3/4" groups at 100yds with Winchester 5.56 55 grain ammo, 2" was typical. I have shot it out to 230 yds and was hitting a 15x9 steel target with no problem. Had it out yesterday with my new 2-7x Burris scope and consistently hitting that same steel target out at 200yds no problem with various 55 grain ammo. I have had zero malfunctions related to the upper, I did have a few on it's first outing that were bolt related. The gas rings needed to seat due to it being brand new and after about 100 rounds that worked itself out. I know it was bolt related because I threw another used bolt in and worked flawless, no issues since. The only set back is the weight of the Socom barrel, its a heavy profile but I have noticed it isn't easy to heat this thing up...very consistent. For $180 on sale if you are looking for a budget upper this is the ticket

Awesome up there for the price point

A very nice upper that fit very tight and nice on my Spike tactical punisher lower, it's a great price point I have already shot 1500 rounds, and it handle the heat very well

Loose fit and woobly

by

The holes milled out for the take down and pivot pins is far too large, upper sits loose and wobbly on lower
