    Other than sub-par engraving on an Israeli-style upper that I sent back for replacement, I've been very pleased with the three DSA receivers I have - one forged and two cast. Reading Gunplumber's DSA rants are like listening to fingernails on a blackboard. How someone can feel such immense pride about being such a consistently obnoxious dick is unfathomable to me.

    Some may have already read it over on the Files but I'll add it here. I recently put together an izzy DSA receiver with a parted together izzy kit that I had built previously on an IMBEL. The DSA barrel threads were too tight, so tight I couldn't spin in the barrel by hand more than a full turn. With tools I got it in not quite half way before it screeched to a halt.
    Some tap and die work and all was well, the barrel spun in like it's supposed to. All else with the receiver went well and I was relieved to find that everything else was to spec and I didn't have to modify good parts to fit a not so good receiver. The rifle shoots well and I'm happy, kudos to DSA for making the Israeli marked units and making them well enough that a home builder doesn't have to hire someone to build them.

    These truly are screw together rifles. If all components are made properly anyone with a couple of simple tools can safely assemble one and it run just fine. This is just as FN designed it to be. If grinding, cutting, or modifying any piece of the rifle is required to put one together then something is wrong somewhere.

    Joemomma, please do post pics of your rifle when it's complete as I'd love to see it. Sound like a good combination of parts and features.

    I don't "run" my guns or "run" anything on them. Likewise, none of my guns are "platforms".

    Picked it up today, and as an added bonus my FFL dealer talked about the one he used to have, then asked if I wanted the mag he still had, and of course I said yes because free is always good. Turns out to be an old school Israeli one. I sure hated shelling out the coin for this, but what the hell. Hopefully I can get this built soon, but I'm still waiting on the damn metric folding charging handle from DSA.

    Those are nice kits from what I've seen here, and other places. Get it built, but more importantly, get your magazines and spare parts now.
