Had a Spikes Punisher lower on order for a while now to go with my Spikes upper...got tired of waiting when I saw this DD hanging on the wall at CTD today. So I snatched it up and boy am I happy with it. Gonna have to call the ladies at Spikes Monday and cancel my order. I will have the upper for sale here pretty soon in EE

Nice rig. But I gotta ask....how much did it cost you OTD? How much was the Spikes?

I paid around $1200 after taxes. Could have gotten it a bit cheaper online but whatever, I wanted it so I got it. Hard to beat walking out with a gun in hand.

My Spikes upper was about $660, lower was about $400 when you include shipping and transfer fee. So right there is almost $1100. I'm going to sell the rear sight that came with the DD, so that will bring me $50. In the end I paid a bit more for the DD than the Spikes, but I think it's worth it. I have heard nothing but good things about Spikes but honestly my dealings with them have been so-so. DD is a reputable brand that's been around for a while...I have no regrets. At some point I plan on swapping out the stock and the grip. Really like the UBR (if I can talk myself into spending that much...) and will probably go with an MOE Grip
