Damn nice kit!

by

I built one of these on a PSA lower (blem) a year and a half ago.



<br>About 500 rds or so. Mostly handloads.



<br>not one jam. not one hickup. not one problem.



<br>Trigger isnt bad. Standard heavy but smooth. I put a JP trigger spring set in and it improved with no change in reliablility.



<br>



<br>It prefers full power 556 for accuracy. Factory stuff is giving 1.5 moa. Still looking for combination for heavies. I've made it close to moa with hornady match 68's and H335. 55gr varmageddons on 24gr of h335 are giving .335" at 50 yds when i tested (scoped on both).



<br>



<br>Honestly think this rifle can shoot better than i can.



<br>IF you want a bipod for precision shooting on this, the Harris No. 5 Bipod stud works great and is low profile. Cant see it hardly without the bipod on it.



<br>



<br>This is a great rifle kit. Treat yourself and get one.

Just completed this kit on an Anderson lower. Zero fitment issues, it went together very smoothly.

Just my 2 cents.

First and foremost I bought this rifle kit because I needed a 0-300 yard AR-15 that would not break the bank, check in the box for PSA (and Primary Arms, I bought this on sale). I wanted a kit that came with the furniture that I planned on putting on it eventually and did not want the extra parts (A2 handguard, etc.) just sitting in a box for eternity, check. Assembled the rifle on a Anderson stripped lower. It fit nice and tight. Again, EVERYTHING FIT. No upper/lower wobble. First range outing report. 3 round accuracy averages is as follows, Wolf WPA 62 FMJ, 2.2", Tula 55 FMJ, 3", American Eagle .223, 1.5", personal reloads, .75". ZERO FAILURES. If you have realistic expectations for this rifle kit you will be happy, again keep in mind how much you are paying for this kit. It has realistic accuracy out to 300 yards (and beyond just have not tested it yet) and is reliable after 400+ rounds. I am happy, impressed and pleased all around with this kit price considered.
