If you are interested in the Olympic Arms AR-15's and their current quality, I would encourage you to read this thread from a guy who was on the fence about Olympic and ended up one happy customer...

Default My 2 cents...

Been an Olympic Arms owner since the late 90's, and I can attest to their accurracy as well as their quality....to the point where I own two...a CAR-97 and a Plinker. The PCR (politically correct rifle) was bought during the AWB and lacked a bayonet lug and had a fixed (pinned) stock that I replaced with a six-position stock, and I added Pachmayer grips. The Plinker has been left factory stock. Both are extremely accurate out to 300 yards ( farthest I been able to test them at outdoor ranges in my area. )





100 yards


300 yards
