    The home builds are not surprising because that is what I have read that the big national trainers have observed. They said if they have a rifle go down it is invariably a home build. I am a little surprised that PSA is that bad. Anderson doesn't surprise me. I got one of their lowers where the grip screw wasn't threaded deep enough, so I have always had a bad impression of them.
