- Under 1 Inch groups for under $700! (review by Rios on 12/6/2014)
OK, I've shot and owned a lot AR's and I know what to expect and how to judge quality parts from junk. I bought the gun strictly for brush hunting and target shooting, given I take this gun everywhere and it gets beat up. The accuracy is averaging 3/4 -1 inch all day at 100yds. And that's with PMC bronze FMJ and an variety of SP and polymer tip bullets. It loves 50-62gr bullets, heavier than that the groups spread out.
The barrel is a medium contour, NOT BULL or Pencil barrel here. Quality of parts for the upper and lower and about the same as PSA, bushmaster, S&W, DPMS, etc. The upper to lower fit was good with just a tiny it of wiggle but a $2 accuwedge fixed that. The trigger was terrible (which was to be expected on a $650 AR) but a 2 stage RRA NM trigger fixed that ($90 online).
Overall the rifle is well worth the price compared to any other rifle in its class (low end AR15's) and You will not find a more accurate rifle for this price, (trust me, I did too much research, everything else comparable cost +$850). So if your in need for a budget semi auto this is perfect. One side note I would add is that I put a limbsaver sharpshooter x-ring on the barrel before I shot it and its been on ever since so that might be helping accuracy. I have them on all my rifles whether they cost $300 or $3000.
