3 of 5 Looked great, but had an issue July 15, 2020
Reviewer: Daniel Johnson from Cullman, AL United States  
pros: quick delivery, look, feel, & finish are excellent
Con: the holes at the front takedown pin were misaligned just far enough that the takedown pin would not go through them.  I worked at it for at least a couple hours.  The next evening I took it to a friend who is former military (more AR experience). He got it to go through by placing the buttstock on the floor and putting downward pressure on the upper while pushing the pin in. However, now there are 2 small areas where the handguard meets the lower receiver with visible metal that I guess I am going to have to file down and try to color black. And the handguard still scrubs the front of the lower and does not pivot easily on its hinge. It looked great, but the pairing with my lower did not go as smoothly as I had hoped. I emailed PMA the day after I received it and havent heard back, but it has only been 2 days so maybe I will. If I did not have this issue, I would have given 5 stars. I cant comment on performance yet.
