The rifle has a free floated, 24" Stainless Steel bull barrel. So for an AR that is about as accurate of a combination as you can come up with. I hear from as many satisfied Olympic Arms shooters, as I do people who badmouth them. It's the same with all of these brands. Someone will ask what someone thinks, and it will go back and forth from there.
This gun was designed and purpose built as a varmint rifle, not "slicing the pie" in house clearing drills. It's main concern should be long range accuracy. That is a crap shoot with any rifle, in any brand or caliber. If I was into depopulating dog towns, I'd want one of these.
