Default AR Question

Does anyone know if ATI makes a good AR-15? I was offered an ATI Omni hybrid for my Ruger SR1911 comander and I am not sure it is a good trade since I can't find much on the rifle.

Here is a link to the Davidson site where the gun is. Can someone tell me if it is a decent gun?

AR-15 Link

Thanks

They seem to be more durable than aluminum.

Well, I would be perfectly happy to trade your 1911 for a plastic AR.

Doesn't affect me a bit.

Other than the polymer situation,they don't have the best rep. I think they are garbage. I've worked/ repaired 3 for friends. One of them had the FSB mounted at the 12:30 position, blocking Half the gas port. The other broke lugs on the bolt, the other had a missing take down detent. Not impressed!

Thank you. That's enough for me to stay away from it.

I have no experience with (never even heard of) this manufacturer, but I do own a Bushmaster carbon AR. I have had no issues in the two years I have had it. But... I do not expect the same longevity as a steel receiver. Time will tell. Different strokes for different folks. Get what you want. Post a report.

Plastic is for 22's and glocks not AR's!
