thats true Mike. never hurts to look good while doing good though! but you're right, some want a good looking rifle and some want a reliable rifle. i would rather have a plain jane well functioning rifle that is 100% reliable every time i pulled the trigger.

did you look at their website? the flash hiders were pretty cool looking. that hex shaped one is one that really caught my attention.

Do they work? I happen to have a soft spot for Battle Comps. They work very well and look cool w/o looking like they would be on an AR that belongs to some dude w/ indoor furniture on his porch. Wouldn't the moisture make a couch start to smell bad? lol.

Their rails are made by Samson which are definitely a quality product.

Fluting on a barrel or dimples or anything that increases surface area allows a barrel to cool faster than a plain jane.

If its not done right it can cause accuracy issues.

I understand the concept and would like to have a dimpled barrel, KAC style. But in all honesty it would be a cosmetic thing for me.

Me personally, I want a rifle that is reliable as well as looks good. Reliability being the most important of course. I know Black Rain is quite pricey. I think that’s because they are the only ones who are trying to design them for the younger shooters. At least they are the only ones I know. I don’t mind recommending a couple brands either depending on the customers wants. That’s why I’m looking for feedback. I’d hate to sell a cool looking rifle for $2100+ that is a piece of junk. That being one the reasons I’m looking at US made ones. If there are others you would recommend I’m all ears.

If I was to spend over $2k on a rifle it would be a KAC SR-15.

Not only that but it's ambi from the factory. I look at it as the pinacle of ARs. KAC is to firearms as Bugatti is to vehicles.
