Hi Guys,
I got my first AR-15 style rifle (M4)

Tell me what you think of the deal,

It's the DD Vickers signature rifle, I bought it used without the Aimpoint or Surefire and paid $1600

I's like new, with 40 rounds fired through it.
5.56, 16"B, Surefire flash hider, ect.


I bought it from my nephew who bought it new, he paid $3K

Nice! Now sign up for Larry's class and I bet you get to be teacher's pet. :D

J/K :D Excellent rifle! I have a DDM4V3 upper and love it.

Looks surprisingly like the one he shot in the class I took with him.

Seemed to work ok.

I have read that there were only 250 of these made, I don't think that raises the value much but it's a cool looking rifle.
I need to go shoot it.

Good looking rifle. I have much respect for Mr. Vickers. He doesn't usually allow his name to be used with anything that isn't top notch.. Be proud to have that rifle.

Good choice for your first AR!

I was afraid this was another Olympic thread. ;)

Nice rifle but couldn't the same one be assembled or purchased for less without the logo? I didn't price out each component but $3K, even with the optic and light, seems awfully steep. Was this panic pricing?

Sure you could spec out the same rifle, or make a change or two like midlength gas over carbine length. Still the Vickers Signature is a great AR most of us would be proud to own.

Same goes for the BCM EAG or BCM Jack. You could build one yourself.

$1600 is right around the price it would cost to build that and rifle. The hand guard alone cost $400.

I think it's fair price. Being a Vickers Signature rifle also adds some value.

The only thing about that rifle I don't understand is the color choices.

If it would allow me to shoot half as good/fast as larry it would be worth every penny and more!
Nice "piece of kit" as he'd say!
