Palmetto State Armory has been having these rifle kits on sale. I bought this same kit on black friday for $464.99 + shipping. For a rifle kit costing less than $500, and assembled by PSA, is there any reason not to buy it?
I built my wife a PSA m4 earlier in 2013. Overall I am happy with it as a casual shooter for my wife. I would like to build a few more rifles just to have around and this PSA rifle kit looked like it would fit the bill. Buit before I buy a bunch of them over the next few months I would like some feedback.
