    Does Spikes individually MP test all their bolts? Or do they batch test? I know it doesn't matter but I would just like to know.

    Anyone know who makes their barrels? I thought I read somewhere that they were being made by FN. For what PSA wants for their 16" midlength chf upper with bolt carrier and charging handle you could get a Spikes complete upper cheaper. Joe bobs outfitters has them for 519$. Even Bravo Company is...

    As prices continue to fall, it seems some companies are not responding with price drops. I go to brownells and complete lowers are in the $269 - $299 price range. Stripped lowers are in the $69+ price range. Joe Bobs has Spikes stripped lowers in the $89+ price range. A Spikes complete lower...

    What are your thoughts on the best AR-15 uppers for the money? Given the current market that is. Whiles prices are down I am considering building another AR-15. Back in December I got a Palmetto State Armory M4 CMV rifle kit for Christmas. The upper replaced an old upper on another rifle, so...

    All, looking to start my first AR build project. I've found a complete Spike's tactical lower for $299 at the LGS. Any comments on the quality of Spike's gear. Is this a reasonable price for this item ?

    So I messed up and bought dpms upper on a spikes lower. I thought and was told by the seller it was a complete spikes rifle. Buyer beware, I messed up. Now that I know its a low tier upper, what would be a good option to replace it with? Lets put a price of up to $800 on this project, so no...

    My next build will be a 16" M4 style AR, and it will be my first "black rifle". I'm wondering what rifle would be best to start out with. My goal is to add MagPul FDE furniture to it, sling, and probably an Eotech with back up sights. I'm not really wanting to add all kinds of super gizmos to...

    Which is more important in the reliability of an AR-15, the upper receiver, or the bolt carrier group? Awhile back I bought a frankenpspikes that the guy advertised as a complete Spikes Tactical rifle. Buyers remorse, I got screwed. But rather than arguing with the guy and demanding my money...

    Looking at buying a Daniel Defense complete upper, so who makes a decent lower receiver of somewhat equal value? The upper receiver I am looking at is the Daniel Defense AR-15 DDXV. ~ EDIT ~ Currently I own a Bushmaster AR that was made during the so called "assault rifle ban". A lot of the...

    Im sure this question has been asked 1000 times but the market is ever changing for the AR15 platform and I dont keep up with it to know what best deals are and whats the new kid on the block. At the end of the month I plan on buying a complete rifle or an upper and lower separate and assemble...

    n your opinion what is the best bang for the buck in the semi-auto rifle field? I believe this should also include the availability/price of ammo, firearm reliability, access of spare parts, and accuracy of the firearm. I would also like to know what is the least and most expensive rifle you...

    I took my rifle to the range this weekend to test a couple different types of ammo. I shot Lake City XM193 55gr, and M855 Ball 62gr. I was satisfied with the results. I zeroed my rifle at 25 meters to be on target at 300 meters. I know going in that at 100 yards my shots would be high so I...
