    It will be. Fantastic guys down there. They really helped me out on a build a few years ago.

    I have dealt with then several time over the years on my builds and helping friends on theirs, the crew at SIONICS are rock stars. They are always worth the wait.

    I had one guy buy a DPMS because he didn't want to wait for a SIONICS build and the DPMS was available, only end up hating the is and buying a SIONICS anyway and shooting my rifle next to his turd. LOL

    Our IT guy was in yesterday. His 10 yard key hole Saint was replaced. But the gun they sent him had no finish on a 2-3" portion of the barrel around or under the gas block. He sent that one back and they sent him another that was scratched up. Finally got his money back and ordered a Daniel Defense.

    Even if the Sonics product wasn't superior, I would still buy it over the Saint. Who at Springfield came up with that great marketing name!

    Ironic because Springfield is entirely marketed off of the REAL Springfield Armory name.

    Scionics all the way over the other.

    I bought a few small parts from Sionics, some more, and then a gutless lower. If my experience is typical, you picked a great pistol.

    My first complete AR purchase will be a 16" Patrol 3 as a gift to my son on his return from Italy (173rd AB).

    Well, looks like I dodged me a bullet then...
    Been looking around for a spare upper without luck as prices/availability are in the crapper, and someone had a stellar deal on a full Saint rifle. Like...pre-corona-riot-panic price.
    I said 'damn I could just buy a whole rifle, and it's a spare anyway..."
    Oh the temptations one experiences around one or two in the AM when the panic fever is setting in...

    Then I was like, "Wait as second... you know better than that, and you have zero luck with rifles...better not risk it."
    Then this afternoon I see this thread.
