I'm not sure if its great or awful.
I'm using it on a 9mm gun.
I've paired it with a Palmetto State Armory 9mm Glock lower and their 9mm hybrid BCG and a Stag Arms charging handle.
First issue, the "wings" on the charging handle did not want to fit into the grooves in the upper. After some urging, it "popped" into place. Now that its there, its easy to see the "wings" on the handle are wider than the index grooves in the upper and will probably have to be destroyed to get back out.
Second, it is EXTREMELY tight. Retracting the bolt with the charging handle acts like it has an oversized piece of brass stuck in the chamber, requiring a sharp smack of the butt stock onto a surface to break it loose.
So, I'm not really sure what is the culprit as of yet, but the charging handle fit, does make me concerned.
Any insights or ideas you could offer are welcome.

Nothing unnecessaryReview by Shwell

Ordered quite a few of these over the past few months. I was able to get a few of them during the intro pricing, as well as when they were on sale. At the price I paid (Avg $60 each), they are an exceptional bargain, at their normal price they offer an OK bargain. By OK, I mean, you are paying for a quality part, the price is offset by the savings of not needing to buy a forward assist.

I think I have 5 or 6 total, and all had consistent finishes, and no blemishes to be found. Assembly was straight forward, and everything fit as desired and expected. If you are looking for a product that looks the part, this i it. This upper receiver looks great! The Trade Marks/Logo is a great finishing touch.

Even at regular price, I plan to buy a few more. These Uppers just look great. If you are looking for an upper that doesnt have a Forward Assist (FA), I highly recommend this unit.

*My 5 Star Rating is based on what I paid for my units. I would go with a 4 Star Value rating at normal retail pricing. Which is still fantastic for a unit that is built great, and offers viual stimulation. (Posted on 4/12/2016)
Not Mil-Spec!Review by Adrianna

I was looking for an upper and saw this. first off, this is not Mil-Spec! Mil-Spec has a forward assist. This one does not! I suggest you fix this, very confusing for a prospecting customer (Posted on 3/29/2016)

I would definitely order this upper again. Mine came completely flawless, in perfect condition, and it fit perfectly with my Anderson lower. Rainier filled and shipped this order fast- I ordered on 3/1 and received my order on 3/4. I am extremely happy! (Posted on 3/4/2016)
Good upperReview by Peter

Nice quality upper, I just wish the anodized finish was the same as the finish on their forged lower receivers, I purchased both from them and the upper is more Matte while the lower has a gloss. Thats pretty lame when you pay that price for a forged upper and lower and get two different finishes.
If they were the same finish I would recommend them, I could care less what the finish is, I just want them to be the same.
Other than that, they're nice.

Based on my experiance I got a possible lemonReview by Ziconceo
Quality

I gave this 3 stars for 5 reasons:

Pros: Amazing detail, the anodizing is superb. No scratches, nothin.
Machining is extremely well done.
Got it for 57$ shipped

Cons: The rear pin hole is an oval. This essentially made it non mil spec, it would only fit a few of my lowers. In other words, poor quality control.
Poor accuracy. I did a before and after with this upper. same ammo, same everything. Before I put this upper on I was getting 1moa, now I'm getting 3moa not sure how to fix this...

Inexpensive Quality you can trustReview by Shwell

When these hit the market, they were being offered at a special price, and i thought that pricing was fantastic. Even without a forward assist, this is a fantastic model. I am a fan of having and not needing, but I was willing to give this upper receiver a chance even though I prefer to have Forward Assist components.

Once I received my order, I was quite happy I made the purchase. The savings kept on coming as I realized the only parts needed were the dust cover and a charging handle to finish up this section of the build.

The added trademarks and laser etching on this upper add a bit of pop to what would otherwise be a bland looking upper receiver.

Fit and finish is fantastic, and I cannot wait to abuse it and verify just how durable it truly is. (Posted on 2/7/2016)

I ordered two of these upper receivers. They were in perfect shape and really nice quality. I used one on a 16" 300blk hunting rifle and helped keep the total weight of the rifle with Nikon P-300blk scope under 7lbs. It's one of my favorite rifles I've built. I have the other one waiting to be assembled into a 9mm rifle build to also attempt to keep the weight down. FA can't be used on the 9mm bolts anyway so a regular upper would be just adding extra weight. (Posted on 1/19/2016)
Great price! You get for what you pay for.....Review by Abraham

I give quality 1 1/2 stars.

Pros:
- Fits perfect on any lower I own (zero wobble)
- Engraving and T-marks are nice
- Forging is good, nothing out of spec
- Great price (49.99) got it on special

Cons:
- Took a week to ship
- Black anodizing is terrible (dark dark dark brown color, doesn't match any receiver I own)
- Coating is very easy to chip (thin coating)

My nephews Airsoft guns have better coatings than this upper. These cons could be a reason for why it's on sale.

Biggest Con:
- The M4 feed ramps are basically non existent, little itty bitty ramps, they don't line up with any of my barrels (could be fixed with some filing but something you shouldnt have to do for a USA made product)

Overall:
YOU GET FOR WHAT YOU PAY FOR.
I only paid $50 (on sale) I would never pay regular price for this. (Posted on 1/8/2016)

Really love this product, a friend of mine let me borrow his build with this upper. Absolutely flawless, with that being said. The only problem is customer service. I ordered my upper on 11/11/15 it's now 11/16/15 and haven't even received a shipping confirmation. Site advertises next day shipping and that just isn't the case. Have sent multiple emails and phone calls with no response. (Posted on 11/16/2015)

I ordered two of these. One of the uppers was perfect. The second had a blemish. The blemish was a "J" shaped indentation (about 3/8" long) on side of the receiver. It's very visible. Other than that, the finish is good. The logo is larger and more raised than expected. Hoping is was a little more subtle. (Posted on 6/18/2015)
