    Here is my All spikes build.

    Love it so far. Though I only got about 200 rounds through her.

    I heated it up with & zero'd it with brass, then ran steel. No problems yet.

    I haven't made up my mind 100% yet so tell me more about psa rifles? Are they like spikes in specs or are they more budget friendly like the s&w sporter?
    I'm not so worried about rails and things just yet ill get a forend down the road when I can afford the accessories to put on it untill then ill be running it naked (I know scary an AR without stuff on it lol)

    Spikes is a great AR. I bought the st15 mid-length and love it. It's a real nice, accurate, fun to shoot AR. If you can wait for one, don't hesitate to buy one. Maybe you can even find one in stock if lucky. Check AimSurplus, JoeBobOutfitters, or even Maine Tactical. Last time I checked Maine still had some in stock. Don't listen to some of the recent Spikes bashers. Having to wait for one longer than you wanted to doesn't mean they're a bad rifle. Just means they're good and in high demand. Appreciate the fact that many people want them.

    Spikes are excellent rifles. I've placed about 10 orders with them and always had EXCELLENT customer service. Never had to send anything back to them. Always prompt and courteous. However, if the need would arise, everything on it has a full lifetime warranty. Colt & PSA are only a year...(BCM is lifetime also). I was told 4-6 weeks when ordering a mid-length and it shipped in 10 days. If they weren't a good product there would be lots of them sitting in dealer's stock. The market weeds out bad products and Spikes has been in business for over 10 years. Mine shoots very smooth and I would buy another.

    I built two Spikes ARs, one carbine length and one pistol, they are sweet! No bling just a standard setup "naked" like you said haha, my buddy has an M&P and he said mine shot a little smoother. I got both of my uppers for just under $500, one was 470 I think and the other was 485, I got them both off GunBroker and had them in about 3 days and this was January and March.. BUT like everyone has said they are having major supply issues now that demand has skyrocketed and sustained itself so I don't know if its still the same, I literally bought the last 10.5" upper in the whole company at the time.. the VP told me so.

    They are top top top quality for the price, Barrel and bolt are both HP and MP tested, there were ZERO blemishes on both uppers and the lower I got from them and have had no issues.. except for on the pistol the hammer pin kept slipping out but that was because I put the hammer spring in backwards :uhoh: whoops! WORTH THE WAIT:D

    While we are showing off our Spike's, here's mine - a 16" M4LE carbine upper w/ 9" BAR rail on a PSA lower:

    This thing has been 100% reliable since the first shot. In my opinion Spike's represents the very same level of quality that you get from Colt, BCM, or Daniel Defense. The lifetime warranty doesn't hurt either.

    I probably will have to get the PSA midlength hammerforged 16 in complete upper and a Spikes Tactical complete lower.

    Spikes and PSA both make good ARs, you won't be disappointed!
