I would say yes. It's hard to get into any AR for 325.

Default Thank you for your opinion

I'm going to use it for plinking. I'll post pix of finished weapon (Lower receiver was fathers day gifts {inards & buttstock} and stripped lower was a gift from friend.)
So I have spent $337 {upper + s/h} and I have a finished weapon.

You have beautiful girls and they must love you a bunch.

Great deal too.

Lovely girls...I bet you met their boyfriends at the door with a 1911 on your belt and a snarl on your face!
