Not to mention the fact that brownells gives a 5-7% discount for FFL holders and likely Red Jacket is buying wholsale so probably has 20-30% less than what is shown on Brownells, so that $1,500 price tag is really closer to $1,200.

I don't fault them for making a profit. More power to them, I wish I could make money like that, I could make $10k in a day LOL, but personally I wouldn't buy a Red Jacket AR15 and if I did I certainly wouldn't pay $1,000 for one!

No doubt many of us with a $1500 budget could build a better AR than Red Jacket's!

...then again, might be why I got a C- in EE

After I installed a $300 Osprey piston kit a few weeks back, my buddies AR was better than Red Jacket's. I honestly think I could take a Vulcan and make it better than RJ's.
