    NR receiver set comparison

    Owning both I thought I'd post a few pictures here to show some differences for those trying to make a decision.



    Just received this set a couple days ago and am still waiting on some parts so it's not yet assembled but here it is:

    Initially it looks pretty well done. Anodizing is dull but consistent. Still looks good though.

    But then I noticed a couple issues with the machining:

    Hole in upper isn't large enough to insert the gas tube. Not really a big deal though.

    And then there's this ^^^ Not quite sure what happened here


    Now a few pics of the MS receiver. This ones assembled but you can still see what it's like:

    Fit and finish is nice. Anodizing is a nice deep colored smooth hard finish. Doesn't mark easily.

    ^^^ Magwell is cut perfectly

    I could not find a single machining issue anywhere on the MS receiver.



    I'm glad there are companies building these products and we have options that until recently didn't exist. That being said I'm extremely impressed with the level of build quality and attention to detail that ATRS puts into their product. The MS is by far my favorite.



    *please note, the purpose of this post is simply to show the difference between the two products and let you decide for yourself.

    For someone who is out of the loop, buying this receiver makes your rifle non restricted? as long as it has the proper 18.5 inch barrel length?

    Search Maccabbee SLR and ATRS Modern Sporter

    Both are proprietary receiver sets; ie. NOT AR15 receivers. Although, they are "loosely" close in resemblance to the AR15, they are different (cannot interchange).
    However, both were designed to accept the majority of AR15 bits and pieces.

    I ended up stripping and selling my SLR set and ordering a MS set. Should have it by August. I’ve had ATRS products in the past and have never been disappointed. Should have just took the risk and ordered prior to the FRT haha.

    After having both I would say I agree 100%
    My ATRS MS is flawless
    My SLR had a few issues, totally serviceable, but not the same level of detail.
    Also enthused that people are happy with what they got as it's a great time for quality NR rifles in Canada.

    That mag well on the MDI looks like they let some beavers just chew out the inside... I own a MDI (and work for a welding and machining company) but mind doesn't look that bad.... the outer finish is very co-op student level... but that looks like it came out of the Norinco factory lmao

    My sentiments exactly. My SLR was totally serviceable. But it was a pain getting the roll pins in, and the takedown bolt kept falling out while I was shooting(well loosening off but once it came off). From what I’ve seen, and what I’ve come to expect from ATRS quality judging by past products I’ve had ( Modern Varmint) I would go with the MS. They are both the same price more or less, but I would have a hard time ever spending $1000 on an SLR again when the MS are available for the same price lol. IMHO the SLR is priced $200 too high for what it is.

    Also agree that it’s a great time for NR. These products are all great and it’s good to have a little bit of competition/variety in the market!

    Why isn't that a big deal? I don't imagine it being a very easy fix, but I've never owned an AR style semi before.

    Let me rephrase what I meant:

    It's not a big deal to fix that issue because a small file will enlarge the hole enough in just a minute or two HOWEVER I'm not saying that it's ok it came that way.
