Saw the facebook ad. I'm curious. At that price I'm tempted to pick one up and toss it in the corner of the gun closet and forget about it for a while, until I decide to either make it a rimfire or go nuts and do a pistol caliber build. Anyone have any insight? Some people have said they're junk, others have said they're good-to-go.

Thought the same thing. They may be out of stock now. Last I read there was 1 left.

If that's the case, I know another retailer has them, and they're selling multi-packs too. :D

I picked up 2 on New Years day for 39.95!

Throw them in the safe and figure it out later.....uppers are pretty expensive though.

Well, jeeze... we should figure something out you and me then.

That was the plan all along.

I've been wondering about this myself. Will they not hold up to rifle cartridges? At $35, would it be a big deal to replace them if they don't?

They're supposed to. But I already have a very snug DPMS in .223. I've been batting around an AR that I can rig up for 10mm as a proof of concept for something that's been bouncing around in the back of my head (gas-operated 10mm carbine, since the TDI carbine breaks buffers) for a few years, but don't have access to the machinery to make it, and AR parts are easy enough to source.

And an update from FB as of 8 seconds of me typing this up: They're sold out.

I don't think they are the Omni model, they don't say "Omni" on the side of the reciever and I don't see a metal insert in the recoil buffer thread.

I know someone who used an Omni for the basis of a light .22lr carbine. She likes it
