They have been having a bad run lately, it seems ever new gun from the PA-10, KS-47, AKs and even AR-15s have problems.

Only problem I am having is figuring out what ammo to get, and where to get it at...

I have 4 PSA complete AR lowers on 4 totally different combos and have never had a minutes trouble out of any of them...I hope to have the same luck with this...assuming I ever shoot it...lol

The more I searched around today, the more frustrated I got....Freestate had some I could buy and shoot there, but for a buck a round, I chose to skip shooting it today.

I may shoot outdoors once a year, so I could use some help in the form of suggestions on what brand ammo fits the bill, for INDOORS, and where to get it.

The cheapest I found today was like 32 cents a round for fmj poly coated.
Not sure if it's too far from you but you can shoot steel CASED bimetal ammo at the NRA indoor range.

Absolutely no AP, steel core, etc. You may want to show them before you shoot to be 100% in the clear.

The wolf / tula / red army stuff is typically $.21 a round shipped. Sportsmans guide is usually the best source for 7.62 x 39.

No kidding? I knew about the prior PA-10 issues and of course encountered the limited mag incompatibility with the KS-47 discussed in this thread, but didn't realize their AKs and AR-15s had problems.

Although I'm not surprised about the AR-15s as I've gotten three uppers from them (no longer) and it's been so clear that they just slap them together (canted front sights, etc). By contrast, a Spikes complete upper that I got at the same time as the last PSA upper for just a bit more money appeared good to go. I should have my AR doctor (Chad) give his prognosis as he was recently giving them both a check up.

Google Maps claims it to be about an hour and a half away...but me on 495 with firearms is probably not a good idea...lol. Every time I've ever been on that road, I was amazed how many idiots could be on the same road, at the same time, all the time...

Thanks for the head's up...maybe I'll take the drive somewhere to shoot outside...either that or just go ahead and sell it, new in the box still, unfired and simply stick with my other "shoot em anywhere" guns...

Almost forgot the obligatory photo...

AR-15 is more QC than design, but I had to send multiple bolts back to them. In my opinion that company has decided that they will have low initial QC, use their customers to trouble shoot, and then try to fix any problems that come up for free. It's probably cheaper that way since many ARs are rarely shot in their owners entire lifetime.

Iraqveteran8888 is paid advertisement. I listened to the whole conversation at the Quiet Riot shoot where Evan from Griffin Armament told him they would give them their Ar15 grips at cost (less than $1) to include in his man can (which he sells for profit). By the conversation, clearly this wasn't the first time this happened. The next week he is out there pimping more Griffin stuff.

Most of the full 30 reviewers are im bed with the manufacturers.
I called it over a year ago!

CMMG must have been on the $35,000 per year plan.

Other than the brief video clip from YM, has the IV8888 sponsorship levels document filtered out on the internet? Real black eye for them and that innocent, aw shucks, we're just good ole guys who like guns schtick. The numbers quoted by YM were more than just T&E product contributions. At least with Hickok45, he's been blunt about who gives him what, reminding everyone at the beginning of the video who provided him what and thanking his sponsors (like Federal and Buds Gun Shop).

Not sure to be honest, but the document in that video looked legit and I didn't see them deny it.
