There was just a thread on this somewhere, but I cannot find it.

I owned one and it functioned great, but seemed somewhat cheap. I had the PCR-99 model. It was ok.

Any good??? any info on them? ive read good and bad, but want some first hand knowledge.
never owned one, but back in the day these things were cheap and in abundance. every olympic owner I met and talked to were happy with them. I hear a lot of smack about them on the internet, but I have not seen or heard of any problems in real life.

Well, they're not the best. That being said, I have been entertaining the thought of one of their 9mm uppers.

Oh yes, presenting... "the chart". :D

I like mine and that chart is not accurate.
from another thread on Oly by marvin74


Sorry, I did not know we had an English teacher looking over our typing:razz:. I like the chart, But my oly has double shield handguard, m4 feed ramp and staked gas key unless it was swaped out at one time . Who knows.

Used from the original owner from what he said but then again he could have got it used. Him self but i am happy with it. just as good as the dpms i got new.

AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!! MY EYES! The Chart has surfaced AGAIN! ;)

Why go Oly when you can get one from CMMG that has been checked over, may be dinged or have color shade differences.. all for about $550?

Honestly, for the plinker why not Oly? Then again, if you're going to take the weapon and it's use seriously, drill it alot, ect.. Pass on the Oly, save a little while longer and go with a more reputable manufacturer. No first hand experience though, so take that opinion for what it's worth.

Own 2. No problems with neither.

Run them hard regularly, still no problems (as Gomer Pyle says... Surprise Surprise).

It just doesn't have the snob appeal because of the higher price tag.;)

That chart needs to be updated. I own a Armalite M15 A4 16" midlength, lots of things not marked on the chart that are on the M15. Not to mention the trigger which started out kinda rough after 150 rounds rivals any RRA Match 2 stage I've ever fired and its way more accurate than any of the Bushy Carbines I've ever fired or owned.

I went with my Oly (9mm) becuase the shop I frequent has one in their rental fleet. The rental gun gets used and abused, and despite being cleaned maybe 2-3 times a year, it continues to run like a champ. I rented it, liked it, and bought an upper.

I'll also say that I had a fantastic experience with Oly from a customer service standpoint.

Good to know. I'm gonna give their 9mm upper a shot(no pun intended).

I didn't compile "the chart"....found it on m4carbine.net

http://www.m4carbine.net/showthread.php?t=6642&highlight=chart

feel free to drop by there and add your comments so he can update it.

ETA: I've sent an email to Oly asking about M4 feedramps and double shielded handguards since I found no mention of either on the website.



Oly would still be my last pick if I was buying a brand new AR
