This Rifle is Awesome looking and performing.

I love my Spike's Tactical Crusader. Full disclosure, I did receive my new one from PA and it had a scratch on the upper. PA contacted Spikes Customer service for me and they were 100% super in handling the problem. Sent return label, I shipped it and less than a week later I had a brand new rifle with replaced upper in my hands. <br><br>I took this rifle to Front Sight for the 4 Day Practical Rifle class. I mounted a PA 1-8X Scope on it and zero'd it at 50Yds before I went, that's it. I shot 500+ rounds of PMC and Wolf Gold in that class, got my Distinguished Graduate and had ZERO issues with the rifle. The instructors were also drooling over the rifle when they saw it. It has been flawless. Couldn't recommend it more. Would love to buy another one.

Please take my money, again & again !!!


This is the second time, I purchased the ST Crusader first time had to sell for financial reasons. This rifle is a light weight fast shooter. I have been to the range with my Crusader & it's a great shooter. I got mine for a little over a grand on sale here at Primary Arms. If you want a rifle to put on your wall & never shoot it like a museum piece this is not the rifle for you. I would buy this rifle again & again, because I'm a shooter, not a poser!

Get one


Spikes Tactical Crusader is an awesome rifle. I got a great deal from Primary Arms. STC shoots great and looks awesome.

Great Rifle! buy it! u won't regret it!


Great rifle, Spikes tactical is awesome, definitely worth the money, great shooting gun, minimal recoil, break and rail are fantastic, polished trigger is awesome, sax beranet kunuma!
<br>Spikes tactical! ka kaw!

Badass rifle.


This rifle is an incredible value and totally badass to boot. The laser engraving on the magwell is kinda weak on mine, but honestly I don't care. Overall the gun is amazing and I'm very proud to own it. Handles and shoots awesome - very well balanced and light. Trigger was gritty at first but now presses/breaks nicely after shooting a bit. This is an AR you can run around and train with all day, and your appreciation for it will only increase. Bolt carrier is sick. I wouldn't hesitate to buy again or recommend to a friend.
<br>*Looks like the price is climbing fast - feel like I stole mine now.

Very pleasing purchase


The guys and gals at Primary Arms went all out to make my experience a very pleasant one. I have worked at, and managed and gunteched the flagship store of a chain paintball operation. I know customer service, and they surprised me.
<br> Now as to the Crusader, I love this rifle! Lower weight, shorter length, light recoil, great mil-spec trigger, all describe this rifle. Better than what I shot in the military. This is a great package that turned heads, and surprised those who shot it. I added a magnified red dot, an angled foregrip, and a Hogue finger groove beavertail grip. Very pleased with the result.

Spike's Crusader


The rifle came as pictured and had one magpul pmag and chamber safety device along with some stickers and a neat little Spike's Tactical poker chip. The Crusader also has 3 mlok rail covers a set of magpul flip up sights one push pin quick disconnect that can be moved around for several different sling positions and the spike's rear plate which is similar to a magpul asap. It came shipped in a Spike's Tactical hard case this case would not work for TSA regulations but it is a very nice hard case with foam insert included. I ordered the rifle on a Friday and it arrived at my FFL the following friday with 2 day air that I paid about $9 for so shipping on Primary Arms end was quick to say the least. Overall the rifle seems to be in proper working order but I have not fired any live rounds I have only cycled dummy rounds through and tested the trigger reset. If anything changes I will update but do not expect any problems. This was my first time buying here but definitely not the last.

All these whiners about finish...


Lets be real here, nobody wants a brand new scratched up gun but hey shit happens right? If its not permanently affecting the way the gun operates who the hell cares? Its a tool not a show piece. You can always tell who actually puts their guns to work at the range vs who likes to keep them pretty.
