You won't question the purchase
I have had one of these for about 2 years, roughly 1500 rounds downrange. I originally ordered when the company was just going under the name of Digital Tool and Machine as part of a build I was doing to prove a point (a complete AR for under $350). I have no negative feedback. The fit and finish is great and resulted in a firearm that is well balanced, a solid 1/2 MOA build. I have yet to experience a FTF or FTE from this rifle, only a few issues with 2 specific magazines that cause me issues in all of my rifles. This IS NOT A CHEAP OFFSHORE PRODUCT, this is a quality product from an OEM supplier who is selling to the general public. They machine and finish essentially everything in house except the barrels (which they may be machining now as well. If you want a name brand stamped into your rifle, feel free to spend your money on it. If the name on the rifle doesn't matter, buy the same exact item from their OEM supplier for a fraction of the cost here. Yes, there's a lead time for them to make your upper, but if you call them up and order 3000 bare upper receivers, they'll have a lead time as well, but neither order is going to faze them. Go ahead and order it, the only thing you'll question is why you only ordered one.
