Default Red jacket kmp-di direct impengment rifle

Recently i purchased one of the red jacket ar-15's and so far I love it. So far not a single malfunction with it. Ive always wanted an ar and this is my first. So what I'm wondering is what other people think of these and if anyone else has much experience with them. since I'm new to ar's I don't have a lot to compare to and I wanted some input from people who surely know more then I do. Thanks.

I think you may be the only person here with an AR from Red-Jacket. Personally I think there are other manufacturers with better prices for the same setup.

I looked into some of those and must say it seems like a very nice rifle. I want one of the AR/AK rifles they build. I forgot what they call it.

That's not bad then. If it runs good and you like it, that's really all that matters. How about some pics on it?

It looks pretty good, they have someone do a lower for them and buy the other parts then drop on some Magpul. I guess the real issue is what parts do they put in it.

Does it come with detailed specs, who made the barrel, BCG, trigger group/LPK, etc. And barrel specs/profile. Honestly at that price you have to compare it to a Colt or BCM. The link below has BCM's M4 specs:

Honestly I'm not sure of who builds the parts they use I haven't seen that information anywhere. All i know os that the upper is a key hole And as far as comparing them to colt goes I've been told by someone that they are comparable in quality to the colt rifles. That's not me saying that, that's just what I've been told. I don't wanna make any of the die hard colt guys angry cause like I said I don't know enough myself to make that call.
