    Default Olympic Arms?

    Anyone know what kind of quality Olympic Arms is? I believe they are out of Washington. I've been lookin' at pickin' up one of their AR-15's before this ban gets much closer to being passed.


    Thanks,

    I have both a Bushmaster A-2 (postban) and Olympic A-1(preban). I like the magnesium finish on the Bushmaster as it is more of a mil-spec finish where the Oly looks more like black paint! Both are top quality, but I think the Olympic barrel is of higher quality!

    Thumbs up Oly Arms

    I have 4 Oly Arms SS ultra match barrels.

    3 of them in 9" twist and 1 of them in 14" twist.

    They are all super accurate.

    I am thinking of getting one of thier AR15 .300 whisper/fireball rifles.

    They are a top notch company from what I see at the range and my own expierence with their barrels.

    LOL, Do not read anything about Olympic Arms on ARFCOM or you'll never buy one.... OLY is loathed by a majority of ARFCOMer's!

    I've owned 2 of them myself and I guess at one point they weren't the best in the business, but they have changed over the years and are comparable to other AR brands now IMO!

    Plus you can't hardly beat the price....

    My M4gery "Mutt" is a OLY lower with Rock River Arms lower parts kit and various other parts. It runs like a champ...
