Ratings & Reviews
Failure to feed
by Mo -
Bought this rifle and took it to the range immediately. The first shot was so smooth and soft shooting. The compensator worked as expected. I was so excited thinking what a good choice I made until I pulled the trigger a second time and it went click. Tap- rack- bang and click. The rifle won't shoot but one round at a time without manually cycling the next round. Failure to feed. This went on for the next 60 rounds. I called the company and they were very nice and explained it was probably the extractor and would send me replacement parts. Wanting to shoot my new rifle, I dropped a new bcg from another rifle in it. The same problem happen, failure to feed. Sadly I had to send it back to Radical to repair. They sent me a return label without any hassles which I appreciate. But seriously, this rifle should have never left the company without checking to see if it actually works. Quality control failed big time.<br><br>I'll happily update this review if it works when I get it back.

I bought this rifle after a lot debate and was excited to get it. I took it to the range after lubing it. The first shot was was awesome. It felt good and was very soft shooting. Then I pulled the trigger a second time and click. Tap-rack-and bang, then click. This went on for the next 60 rounds. I used different mags all loaded with only 10 rounds, but it would not feed and every 3-4th round wouldn't eject.
<br>I called the company and told them about the problem. The said they'd send me a new extractor. Wanting to shoot my awesome new gun, I dropped a new BCG from another rifle into it and took back to the range. 1st round was smooth, then click! Tap, rack-bang. This went one for the next 15 rounds. I called Radical again and explained the problem and they sent me a return label without any hassles. This is a case where quality control obviously failed. What a shame since it's such a nice rifle.
Rifle is 18in rifle lenght gas system which is undergassed and better for use of lightweight carrier with adjustable gas block.

You have to remove around .7oz from either the carrier or buffer. This rifle is under gassed as it comes and short stokes. It should be a mid length gas system rifle if it is going to be sold with a full weight m16 carrier and a 3oz buffer. Remove 2 or all weights from the buffer to fix. I own 2 of these rifles. I love both. Ive shot 1050yds with federal 55grain fmj 223 pressure ammo. Which is pretty much the worst choice you could make for ammo selection. Google: "1050yds Radical" Hit is at 35seconds in. Its a solid rifle. Less 1 star because most people don't know how to tune gas systems and also they should be using mid length gas system barrels on their 18in barrels so people don't have the short stroking problems in the first place. There products are surprising good however radicals r&d could be a bit better.

After 6 months at Radical waiting on repairs, I received my rifle and it shoots great. Its light weight and is crazy accurate. It has a extended textured bolt catch for easy use and a smooth stock trigger. It's a nice rifle that's enjoyable to shoot.
Haven't been able to take the rifle to the range yet so this is more of a company review for both Radical Arms and Primary Arms. Rifle was shipped fast, service was great, and everything went really smoothly. Package showed up in great condition on time and was perfect. I'm excited to get it out to the range. Thank you!
