    Davidson Defense Upper...not so good

    I got an email a while back from Delta Team Tactical about a upper on sale. Davidson Defense complete upper minus bolt, and a lower build kit(556). I took the bait and ordered it. About 5 weeks later it arrived. The night before Thanksgiving I assembled a lower and put the Davidson Defense upper on it ( I didn't use any of the LPK that came with the upper). Thanksgiving day we always do a bunch of shooting, so I got it out, put a mag in it, went to charge a round, and the round got stuck about 1\4 inch from full battery. And it was STUCK! A few days later I took a rubber mallet and beat the bolt open and got the round out. I tried that round in another gun and it went fine, I then tried other rounds in the Davidson Defense and again no-go. Yesterday Delta Team sent me a return label and I sent it off today. I told them I want my money back. We'll see how long it takes them and if I get a full refund.
    Also the rounds that I tried in the chamber came out very scuffed up, like the chamber wasn't finished. Empty brass wouldn't fit either.

    Sorry to hear about your Bad Luck! I ordered an AR kit last year from Sarco minus the Lower. For the price I figured I'd have to deal with some small problems. I was surprised to find just the opposite. It was all Mil-Spec and neatly packaged and arrived in under 48 hours. I haven't seen Sarco mentioned on here but ill buy from them again. Good Luck with your Refund!

    I am thinking Typo

    OP did you run a brush in the chamber. I had PSA upper a few years ago that did near the same thing.
    Looked in the chamber and it was full of crap. I put a chamber brush on a battery drill and cleaned it out.
    Ran just fine after that.

    Yep, I have a Davidson Defense upper in my closet (223 Wylde) waiting to go on a build. I haven't tried it out yet. I hope it's not a widespread issue.

    DAVIDSON Defense. I must admit I checked my email at 5 am while waking up and drinking coffee and was thinking Daniel Defense when I placed the order. When I woke up I felt misled, but thats my fault.

    Hey guys, parts is parts, it shouldn't matter that one is $800 and another is $50? Daniel, David, Defense, it's all the same!

    OP, not dogging on you, just making a point!

    Yes, I read the title and his paragraph, he does state Davidson a couple times and Daniel Defense once near the end, referring to it as the same upper with the issue.
    That's why I was confused.
    The OP could go back in and edit his post.
