Ok I'm not familiar with their laws. Make sure a collapsable stock and vertical grip are legal. Aside from that I'd say the price isn't too bad but what about extra charges (shipping,transfer fees, etc.). I'm sure if you look around more you might be able to do better. Looks like a nice gun though.

I'd pass, you can build one for about the same price. Bull barrels are heavy, having one SS barrel chambered in 5.56 nato is counter-intuitive. Doesn't even mention who made the barrel.

I have to agree with Tikki. I built a decent one for around $800 and if I had a $1200 budget I could have done much much more with the rifle I'm building. Do some research and read some of the stickies and you'll want to build your own.

A heavy thick walled barrel designed for accuracy. Keeps zero better after multiple shots because it reacts to heat less than a thinner barrel.
