I have had this rifle for a year now and have put several hundreds of rounds through it. It is far more accurate than what Armalite states at 2-3MOA. With cheap American Eagle 150gr fmj I was able to shoot at .95" and with Federal Premium I was able to shoot at .90" both were 5 shot groups. If I were to shoot 3 shot groups it would be closer to .75" but the last two shots always would open the groups up to slightly under an inch. Shooting hand loads with various bullet weights and powders I have been able to keep most of the groups under an inch at 100yds from a bench using a 3-9x40 scope.
The carbine is light weight and balances nicely. I only had a couple of FTF but that was with my reloads that were close to starting loads. This carbine prefers the load to be upper level in order to cycle the bolt 100% of the time. All factory ammo tried ran flawlessly.
Overall I am quite happy with this rifle and would recommend Armalite to anyone who is looking for a quality built AR-10 Rifle or Carbine.
