Buds was great, this was my first firearm purchased from them and no complaints.
I bought this rifle for my 10 year old daughter, she goes to the range with me and I shoot my AR15's and she was shooting a Remington bolt action 22 and wanted to shoot my AR but was afraid. I thought this would be a great little starter rifle for her. Out of the box it looks real cool and it's light (due to being almost entirely made out of plastic). I broke it down to clean it, we"re going to the range in a couple of weeks. I first tried using the directions but they're worthless, so i got on YouTube and found a video (so much easier to understand). Still it took me about an hour to get all of the screws out and break the trigger assembly from the upper receiver. Very tedious, and painful breakdown. I did notice that all of the little screws go right into the plastic so I'm not sure how long it'll be before they start stripping. I gave it a good cleaning so it should do good at the range.
The magazine is hokie and doesn't fit that great into the magazine well and mag release button isn't great either. I put a red dot sight on it, flashlight, and foregrip so it looks like one of mine and as long as it shoots good i think she'll be happy. I am dreading the breakdown and cleaning again though.
The picture of the rifle on the website can be deceiving it's basically 6 pieces (5 of which are plastic) and doesn't breakdown like a traditional AR15. The front handgrips and front sight are two pieces of molded plastic that come together in the middle and held together by 6 screws. The butt stock is held on by a locking bolt and pulls off. The upper and lower receivers, including the carrying handle and rear sight are two pieces of plastic that again come together in the middle. And then there's the receiver, trigger assy, and barrel. The plastic pieces basically shroud the receiver and barrel.
I'm giving it 3 stars right now and hopefully i'll be able to get back on an update my review after some range time.
