    a friend of mine just bought two of them. i got to fondle them friday, although didn't get to shoot them. i was as impressed as i expected. the balance is awesome. they're very light-weight on the front.


    i think they're very cheap actually. if you subtract the price of a DD rail ( >$300), the magpul stock, PMAG, etc and it's basically a $1100 colt m4

    since you can't even buy a DPMS or bushamster for that now, why wouldn't you get one?

    Thanks to you.



    Thanks for confirming what I was thinking. All I needed to push me over the line. I just hit the "Buy it Now" button. $1549.00 shipped.:)

    It should work great. It's nothing that is not currently available on the market right now though. I would prefer to build my own.

    They look to become a very top level player. Good BCG specs, barrels look good, comes with rails, etc.

    Most of the "build my owns" will sacrifice quality in the base parts to "look cool" for internet posting. Not the case here.

    I hope to have one for T&E soon, and look for a published article on the gun shortly thereafter.

    I will post a full report once I have received it and can get it to the range. After the research I have done and knowing what the market is for ARs right now I believe I made a good decision.
