    For starters, PSA and M&P are definitely hobby grade.

    You are wrong. You don't even know what's in the TDP. Just because it's the same size or interchangeable doesn't mean it's "Mil Spec".

    But not to the same specs and QC protocols. Just because it looks similar doesn't mean it's the same.

    Mil spec is 4.5 MOA. Even a $350 kit gun will do around 3.

    I have a PSA upper that I have used to shoot sub-MOA groups at 300 yards. I would not be inclined to swap it for a Mil-Spec M4 upper. It is of no matter to me that it is not "mil-spec."

    Here's some other non-milspec stuff that I have and wouldn't trade for the mil-spec version:
    • My USPSA-oriented competition pistols.
    • My handloaded ammo.
    • My eyeglasses.
    • My car.
    • My house.
    • My salary.

    I have AR's made by Ruger, PSA, Stag, and Rock River. The Rock River is 25 years old and the Stag not much younger. The other 2 have been purchased within the last few years. Three out of the 4 have chrome lined barrels, all are considered mid-level AR's, all shoot MOA with good ammo and optics. I paid between $500-$700 for them and none have ever failed in any way. Of course $700 twenty five years ago was a lot more than $700 today.

    To borrow a line from the movie "We were soldiers", If the time ever comes when I need a better one, there will be plenty laying on the ground.

    Even if you are a sub-MOA shooter, and I doubt it, your barrel won't last as long a CL one will.

    Wow, for someone that's been a member here for going on 9 years, your attitude does not reflect THR standards.

    Did you actually want information from this post or was your intent to start a topic and then argue with every response after that based on your "superior opinion"?

    One out of seven is not great. I'm not even sure it's milspec.

    Not arguing, but frankly, most responders opinion are "inferior" to mine.

    Trolls gonna troll. Why do people feed these morons? If you starve them, they leave. I’d be surprised if the OP owns a “milspec” rifle. If he did, he’d be searching for upgrades.

    @CoThG You asked an ambiguous question, and included an annoying, very well-known, terminology error.

    You received an answer, as useful as could be expected given your own lack of specificity, from one of the most knowledgeable professional riflesmiths on the forum, a guy who's consistently demonstrated exceptionally rare and deep knowledge about this subject. . . and your response was to smart off.

    If you actually want to learn something, go read this recent thread on precisely this topic. There's plenty to be learned here, but you'll never hear it if you can't imagine that someone might know something you don't already know.

    I wonder why you even bother to ask questions when it is clear that you believe that your knowledge is superior to all others.
    Why don't you just enlighten us with your Knowledge. But before doing so, be sure to inform us as to where you gained your knowledge.
    That way you may sway my opinion of you. Because, as of right now I see you as someone with an opinion based on nothing and just a TROLL.

    I was going say that I use hi-cap clips in my assault rifle. But I thought that might be too obvious. Thank you all for playing.

    Way too much squabbling. Way too little useful information. Enough for this go-round.
