Good quality, excellent price.

This was on sale at the time and couldn't pass it up. Compare this to a Colt LE6920 and the quality differences are apparent. The bolt is very snug out of the box. I have to use the forward assist to get the bolt in all the way. That will ease with use, but never had that happen before. I remove the handguards and they are ll plastic, no metal. The barrel contour is different than a standard Colt M4 at the chamber neck. The barrel nut is slightly off-clock and consequently the front sight is off about 1-2 degrees. In comparison, the Colt LE6920 shows why it cost 4x as much, but this will totally workable for an everyday AR15.
