the good: The gun itself is excellent quality. A great gun for a good price. the trigger seems smoother than my other AR (diamondback). I love the addition of the Magpul stock, rear sight, and pistol grip. The recoil is lighter than any AR I've ever fired. My friend who owns a Tavor said he thinks it recoils less than his Tavor. I thought they were very close.
the not so good: The magazine provided is a little iffy. I've never seen a follower snag so easily as this one did just by pressing down on the front or back of the follower. Given that, it still fed fine. I put 90 rounds through the mag and had no issues. Nevertheless I have 4 other perfectly good mags. I have a Nickel-boron BCG that I put in this AR and it had several failures to feed. I never had this issue with this BCG in my other AR. And lastly, 1 of the 3 gas rings on the stock BCG burned up after 120 rounds. I replaced the rings but haven't tried it since. My other AR had the same issue with the stock BCG after 120 rounds. I replaced the rings and have gone through 240 rounds with no issues so far. I've put over 500 rounds through the NB BCG in the diamondback AR and no issues with rings ever. So if that's any indication, it's probably just crappy rings from the factory can't hold up a couple of rapid fire bursts.
