Considering the purchase of a PWA AR-15, due to the price (maybe) being right.

Seems to be of pretty good quality, but I don't know enough about them.

Can anyone provide any info or feed back on these?

Thanks much, in advance.

If I am not mistaken PWA never made a complete rifle just lowers . I also believe they are all preban . Just to be on the safe side though Check over at ar15.com (http://ar15.com)

Not sure about the complete rifle thing but I bought a complete lower just before the ban in **********. Definately POST ban. I even ran the serial # somewhere and again, POST ban. Luckily I already had a preban Eagle Arms! I have no complaints whatsoever about the PWA. It is on par with every other lower out there. Buy it.

PWA made both pre-and post ban lowers, and of course they are only considered pre if the rifle was completed before the ban. There is a S/N guide out there somewhere. I own a pre-ban PWA and the machining is EXCELLENT.

Found this on AR15.com.

PWA (360) 438-3983
35222 and Below - Pre-Ban (Note:Some lowers are cast not forged. Out of business) Post-ban have a year prefix in the serial number. Rumored to have only sold lowers.

And heres the link: list (http://www.ar15.com/content/legal/serialNumberList.html)

Not the list I've originally seen but the first one I found on google.
