How well do you know this guy? If he built a gun an only put a few rounds thru it that just SCREAMS there is something wrong with it. Now if you if you've know the guy for years and he's a stand up guy then it sounds decent but anything outside of your buddy losing his job or his kid broke his arm I would get it checked out.

I am still beating myself for not picking a flat Bushmaster at Sportsman's Warehouse during the holidays sale. Price was normally $799 or $900 and lowered to $599. It had a red dot only, not front or rear sites, bascially optics ready.

Found a pic

Aw shucks JD, I'd buy one you built. Now you've made me feel all sad. Are you sad too?

First thing you have to ask him is WHY? it is a simple question, and tells a lot. That is a clone of the current USMC issue M16. It is a great rifle and he did a good job on it, but how does it shoot? Take it to the range and shoot it. IF ya like it get it. It does seem like a borderline price for a new one, and it is a little high for a built gun, but find out as much about it as you can.

For what it is worth.... I would get it for myself depending what the Lower is.

I blew it up a bit, and ya it certianly looks like the Armalite logo. I still think its a cool gun. I guess I would get it. But it isnt my money.

Still would like to know why he is selling it.

Absolutely. However if it shoots well, why not? I have overspent on a firearm just because of the instant satisfaction. Not to mention it is a friend of his and if the reason he is selling is due to economy why not slip him some extra?

But it does seem to be worth the money. If ya look around at shops there is not many of the a4 clones out there yet, and it is in the price range of a new piece. 20 rounds through it is about 10 more than we run through the M&P ars at Smith.
