    I had originally put an oly plinker plus on layaway and posted another thread asking if the plinker would be a good buy. I spent numerous hours reading different boards about what I should look for in a decent AR15 for under $1000. I came to the conclusion the Oly would not meet my needs.

    So, I went back to my local gun-store and looked around for about an hour at their AR's. I took 3 to the counter. One was a Saber, another was a smith and wesson M&P moe, and an armalite 15A4CBA2K. The Saber and Armalite was similar in price,the S&W was about $200 more.

    I chose the flattop armalite 15A4CBA2K, it was listed at $1030. I was able to purchase it for $897before taxes.

    The specs are... Caliber: .223/5.56mm NATO
    Barrel: 16" Double Lapped, Chrome Lined\Chrome Moly Vanadium
    Rifling Twist: RH 1:9"
    Muzzle Device: Flash Suppressor
    Front Sight Base: A2 Front Sight Assembly
    Upper Receiver: Forged Flattop with Picatinny Rail
    Trigger: Two Stage Tactical, Approximately 5-6 lbs.
    Overall Length: 35.6"
    Weight: 7 lbs
    Finish: Anodized Aluminum Upper/Lower Receiver, Manganese Phosphated Steel Barrel
    Accuracy: 2 - 2 1/2" MOA
    Included with Rifle: One 30 Round Magazine, Sling, Black Case, Owner's Manual, Limited Lifetime Warranty.

    My wife, son, and myself shot 100 rounds through it without any problems. I love this Rifle!

    I tried to take some pictures of the gas key staking...

    The firing pin is fully shrouded and the m4 feed ramps look good. However the front sight is not "F" marked and there is not a "H" buffer. What do you guys think..was it a good buy?
