    Oh, it's not!

    FOPA (the Firearm Owners PROTECTION Act... I shit you not) of 1986 banned the import of most 'foreign' ex-military weapons into the US unless the receivers were physically cut into pieces.

    This caused a bunch of US businesses such as Century and DSA, etc, etc to start manufacturing receivers stateside... so that Murricans could also have cool guns. As with everything else in life, quality differs.

    Was this with early versions or is it a current issue?
    Really disappointing because they hyped them to be excellent.

    I'm happy with the rifles I own. I guess they were manufactured around 2013. The DS arms magazines that came with the rifles did not fit properly. But they worked fine in an R1. Local milsurp mags work fine in the DSA rifles!

    If you consider the difficulties that some mainstream arms manufacturers (such as Fabrique Nationale d’Herstal) have in perfecting small arms (and their associated accessories, such as magazines) to ensure that they run consistently and reliably and at all times and in all conditions and the extent of the ongoing testing (and associated costs) that is required to achieve this to a standard which is acceptable to large military organisations (such as the US Army), it is hardly surprising that a comparatively small sideline manufacturer such as DS Arms is going to run into trouble occasionally.
