Blackthorne Uppers

Are Blackthorne uppers any good? I am building yet another AR and the only uppers I can find is a Blackthorne, but I know nothing about them. Any good?

I've heard about 95% bad. It's probably about time for them to change their name again.

Should they go back to Vulcan or Hesse?

Damn, glad I asked. They seemed like a good deal, glad I didn't just order one.

I got one here a customer sent me to use in a build for him. I put 100 rounds down range and it ran fine.

a friend has one that a dirty gun shop owner put together on a DPMS lower and sold it as an AP4....

it didn't run until he pulled it apart to see that the gas key was almost off the carrier...

Yeah, they don't break apart until you hit 110 rounds.
