Olympic arms ar?

Anyone have experience with these? I am looking at the bull barrel version but the cheaper price has me worried.

I had one of the old ones and it was a cheap piece of shit. The machining on it sucked, and fit and finish was horrible. I have heard that the new ones are a lot better.

Chopped,
how old is old? I am looking at 2 right now. One has desert cammo collap stock and foregrip, Molle bag, extra mags and eotech for under 1200. It looks brand new. The other is full stock with cheap scope for 650.

Seems a little steep for 1200, I realize it has an eotech on it but still, it's an Olympic.

I figured the rifle is worth 600 and extras at half price are worth 500. So I planned to offer a grand and see what happens.

Not sure on the production date, but was a couple of years ago. I had problems with it feeding and opened it up and it did not even have a buffer, just the buffer spring.

And here is the one I have listed:

build your own AR, then you'll never question it's quality, because you handled every portion of it's build.

Our PD issues Olympic Arms but they were also bought on the low bid. The saying " You get what you pay for" isn't around just cause.
