Been looking at this model for a while online....and today my LGS got one in for $850. I realize its not on the higher end of the quality spectrum but reviews seem solid and reliable.....and this sucker seems to feed anything you put through it. That price is a little high, but in this current climate its my own damn fault for waiting this long.....but $850 aint bad. Has a lightweight frame and barrel....forward assist....charging handle seemed pretty smooth....and its got a nice look and feel. No rail on the handguard but oh well, that can be fixed Not bad for a basic bare bones start AR methinks, anyone have feedback?
