Trigger issue
Good rifle but I prefer to spend $200 more and get the one with the geiselle trigger. This trigger give me problem on the first day on the range, but good rifle overall

Old shooter new rifle
Very good ” budget” AR Both castings are nicely machined and finished. The bolt carrier is plenty beefy enough for 308 pounding. Cleaned and lubed it haven’t experienced a feed or ejection issue. Have only put a couple hundred rounds through it seems reliable and accurate enough for what it is the trigger is a little on the heavy side but I’m sure it will improve with use. Would recommend these rifles to anybody .

Beautiful rifle… who’s hoarding range ammo?
Beautiful, top quality rifle! Exceeded my expectations. A similar quality rifle by any other manufacturer would cost 100’s more.

An outstanding rifle !!
This is absolutely one of the BEST rifles I have ever laid hands on, let alone owned. Precision machining and fit, finish, and function. I managed to get it while on sale, and it is probably truly worth double what I paid for it. It’s no wonder that they are sold out (frequently as I understand it!). Keep trying to get one if you are interested, you will definitely be happy with it!!
