    I'm trying to part together my first AR build, and i want something middle of the road. i don't want to dump tons into my first build, yet i don't want a POS rifle.

    any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated

    they're not horrible. probably better than Model-1-Sales. And I've got one of the M1S and I've never had a problem with it :dunno: YMMV

    like the rainier arms parts or anything they sell?

    they have epople manufacture and they just slap their name on the "rainer arms" merchandise, but everything else they sell is top notch

    I've bought the majority of my AR parts from them as well as a glock. I've had a few missing items in orders that were fixed within minutes by a simple phone call. They are great guys and I would recommend them to anyone. Orders usually ship the same day they are placed, cheap shipping, nice selections, etc, etc, etc.

    I think it was a barrel, and if I remember right he acted like a little bitch about it and blew things way out of proportion.

    their warehouse is like 5 mins from me. i was missing a ejection port door spring from my order from Bravo. Didnt want to wait to get it. Headed down there and ask if i could buy a spring. They just gave it to me. :coold:

    Then i had a problem knocking the FSB pins out of my CMMG. Emailed and ask if they would do it. Quoted me $30 if it comes out. Went there. 10 mins later, it was knocked out. The guy said he feels bad doing $30, how about only $10. :bowdown:

    I like Rainier.

    They are a small company, so you will always get excellent service. They have a very organized/clean warehouse and IIRC they've expanded to 3 full time employees, and a number of people who do work for them on the side (Stickman for example).

    Never had a problem from them, and would be absolutely confident they would fix any problems.

    I've ordered well over a grand worth of shit from them. Never had a problem.

    Fast shipping. My last order got here faster than UPS that was shipped from almost 1/2 the distance
