    Put me in the 'never had a problem' unless it was 9mm, and those were 10rnd CA mags, so I knew what I was getting into in terms of issues.

    All of mine are mixed and matched lowers/uppers, and I've been building them for 15yrs or so. Any in spec lower will work, plus a decent parts kit. The last 4-6 LPKs I've had were all BCM, and that includes the 22.

    I personally think, that when I started 15yrs ago, there were 'less?' players/manufacturers in the market, so it was easier to stay away from some of the less stellar ones.

    Now that there is a larger customer base, with more companies that makes parts, it becomes a lot harder to stay 'safe.' More folks are getting into the AR game, and that's driving the quality down a little (overall) because there is much more demand.

    For the most part, same for me. The 9mm ASC magazines have a thick Powder Coat and would hold the bolt, so I had numerous FTE, FTF, Stove Pipe, Etc.... Once I got that issue addressed, I have had no other problems.
