Has anyone done any business with Red X Arms? I am interested in an Upper from them but just wonder if its worth it. $390 for a 300 Blackout upper is cheap, maybe thats for a reason. Plus it would look weird being a stainless barrel on a Black lower, but hey if it shoots, I dont really care lol.

Get a 6.8 or 308. Least they provide advantages. Both are cheaper and provide greater performance than the 300blk which was really designed with cans in mind...just a thought.

AR10s are pretty sweet guns.. :)And not many have them

I have also been looking at the 6.5 Grendel uppers too. No one local sells 6.8 ammo, which sucks.

I looked at their web page a while back, I like the look of the stainless barrel. No idea on the quality. There are 2 300 black out loads, one for subsonic use and one thats full on, not really too much difference between the full on load and the 6.8 SPC.

Never even heard of them.
Also why 300 blkout when we can't get cans here in NY?

Pointlessly Exspensive ammo
I have an older .300 Fireball for quite the opposite reason; ridiculously cheap reloads. It's hard to cast and shoot a .224" bullet at 2600 fps when it's made out of wheelweights. But when it's a .30 caliber bullet that's closer to 200 grains at 900 fps, that simplifies things significantly. I can shoot for about a nickel a shot on a bad day, then. And with the right load, it gets pretty quiet on its own. Plus, I enjoy sorting through cases to find the right LC brass that I can cut off to get the right neck thickness without having to turn it, then I get to spend some time making something I'm going to enjoy later.

I did not see that. So they probably profile their own barrels. I wonder what blanks the barrels are made from.

I don't see them making their own receivers though. Possible but it would surprise me.

Meh, after looking at their parts page they don't make most of that stuff. I don't care what they say. Bolt carriers, charging handles, barrel nuts, barrel extensions, receivers, etc... are all bought from someone else and rebranded. I would bet money on it.

Doesn't mean it isn't alright stuff though.

So after giving this more thought, I dont know lol. I however am looking and researching again on 6.8 SPC and 6.5 Grendel. Or see if I can trade my AR15, with a .22lr upper and 223 upper, for an AR10 plus some cash (which is a doubtful trade)

I bought a 20" bull barrel from them about 6 months ago, price was best anywhere, shipping took awhile (almost 3 weeks). Barrel appeared to be very good quality but was VERY heavy (more so than any comparable barrels from other sources I had handled). If your going inexpensive, they are fine. If you want top shelf your better off elsewhere.

Cool thanks for that. For the price I wasnt expecting top shelf.
