    Palmetto State Armory continues to s*ck

    I want to give a little history as to why I'm p*ssed at the arrogance of the gun manufacturing community, specifically PSA.

    I bought a 10.5 5.56 PSA pistol kit which included a Shockwave stabilizer and everything except the lower, for an incredibly low price. It shot great and I couldn't be happier, so much so i talked two friends into ordering one. I then ordered a second one along with a Sig Romeo RD to put on it.

    Unlike the first one that shot good groups, the second one was all over the paper at 25 yards. I at first thought it was the RD so I pulled it off and used the Magpul backup rear sight. It still patterned like a shotgun.

    I sent the targets and upper back to PSA and they replaced the barrel. When I got it back I put the Sig. RD back on it and it grouped satisfactory. Great, I was relieved and happy. However, when I went to zero the flip-up Magpul backup sight I had to crank the rear aperture all the way to the right until it was against the inside of the protective shoulder or ear. There was no way it would co witness. I then turned the upper upside down on a flat surface and sure enough the front post was canted to the right.

    I sent the upper back to PSA for a second time with the Magpul rear sight still on it so they could see the evidence proof the FS was canted and that the rear sight was cranked all the way to one side.

    After a long wait I received an email saying they received my upper along with a one line comment that they had stuck a sight alignment tool in the bore and it checked out to be aligned.

    God%$#%&* it's not aligned or I wouldn't have to crank the rear sight to it's last thread to the right and placed upside down wouldn't rock like a table with one leg thats too short and I wouldn't have gone through the trouble of sending it back!

    I got the upper back an hour ago and put it upside down on the table and of course it still rocks on three corners, just like it was when I sent it in. There are no new pins, tool marks, notes or evidence they did anything to the front post.

    I just got off the phone and was told by the girl answering the phone that I have to send it back again. I told her to put in my notes if they don't want to take the time to fix it and instead some arrogant flunky wants to leave a half sentence in an email saying they checked it and it's ok, then I wanted a new upper.

    This upper has been gone now for months over various issues whereas I've only had it in hand for a couple of weeks.

    I've waited weeks in anticipation for it and stayed around the house all day today because someone, me, had to sign for the package from UPS. And after all the wait, not a God#%&ed thing had been done to fix it. I am p*ssed. Rant over.

    If you have an account on ar15.com then you state your case there. They are a vendor there and have what seems to be a large presence. You might be taken care or lynched by the membership.

    If I posted this on arfcom I would get dogpiled and they would ask 'why didn't you contact PSA first instead of posting a negative post on a public forum?' Thats always the response when someone says anything negative about PSA over there.

    They're cheap so you can buy two for the price of one, banking on the fact one may be a keeper.

    OP, take this issue up with PSA, this is NOT the files.
    I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.
