    has anyone tried an Arrow Arms AR-15? they are based out of Macon GA., my local gun store has started carrying them. they are running about the same price as most other AR-15s on the market. i was just curious if any one has any experience with them. thanks in advance for any help.

    Greetings,

    Their lower is sold in many different brand of lowers and are REALLY nice. I built an AR with the lower and EVERYTHING fits perfectly.

    Thank you

    thanks for the reply kestak.

    the uppers on the rifles had no name. the owner of the gunstore told me that they had bushmaster barrels on them. they felt really nice and seemed solid. the store is about an hour away from macon and i was told by the owner of the store that if i had any problems with the rifle that Arrow would send somebody the next day to the store to repair it and have it back the next day.

    i like the warranty and the quick turn around time should anything be wrong with the gun, i'm just hesitant to buy one without knowing how they are compared to other brands.

    Greetings,

    A suggestion:

    I am building an AR.

    I bought a lower at Aimsurplus for 58$. This lower is made from that company in GA.

    I bought a Del-ton upper and kit for 465$ (plus some improvements you can get for a few $$ more).

    That makes a very cheap and good AR-15. I heard only good things about Del-Ton.

    Thank you

    As long as its built to spec, there shouldnt be anything wrong with the lower, and if it has bushmaster uppers, then it should function just fine, with decent accuracy. but with a warranty like that, you cant beat it. I'd pay $800 for a rifle with that kind of service. anything higher, id build up a BCM, or get a noveske.

    they're asking mid 900's for the rifle, the same as the m&p, & bushmaster they are selling. the owner of the gun store showed me the rifle he had them build for him, it was very nice with a bull barrell and free float handguard, he showed me a target he had shot at 300 yards with a very nice group (didn't have it measured but it was 20 rds about the size of a balloon.).

    i was planning on getting a noveske at the end of june/beginning of july but i might put it on hold and try this out first.

    "they're asking mid 900's for the rifle, the same as the m&p, & bushmaster they are selling."

    If that's the case you might want to consider resale value.

    Agreed. go with the name brand. you might have to wait a while on the unlikely event of a factory repair, but with smith or bushy you are also buying a name you can resell, should you decide you want something else.

    thanks for the advice guy's, you gave me some things to consider. i'll most likely just go ahead and get the noveske, it's just the bare bones flattop model and that's all i was really wanting. i'll pay a few hundred more but i know i will get that back out of it should i decide to sell it.

    As hinted at above, my motto when purchasing toys, from bikes to guitars to guns, has long been, " All else being equal, go with best re-sale value".
    If this new company is "as good: as some other known names, and about the same price, why even mess with them ? There's no up-side.
    BTW, I just put together a mid-legnth Spikes Tactical for about $800, and they seem to be acknowledged as bieng a level above Bushmaster and S&W.
    Spikes complete upper from AIM is $479,delivered, and Spikes complete lower from Brownells is $249. Both arrived in 2-3 days.
    That shop that's an hour from Macon wouldn't be Barrows,would it?
