Upon taking the rifle from the box it appeared to be well made. Though this was called a "cosmetic blemish," whatever the blemish is I am not sure. The safety lever was slightly a different color...maybe that was it. Putting a red dot optic on it and using cheap mags I tested it. After sighting it in it consistently shot on target. I was only able to test it out to about 70 yards, but it was accurate. The trigger was fine...nothing to get all excited about...but certainly acceptable. The rifle functioned fine and was a pleasure to shoot.

The rifle is perfect, found only one blem where the lower receiver gets the buffer tube screwed in. But the shipping was horrible. It was in a box way too wide for it and no padding just wrapped in plastic and tossed in. That was disappointing. I'd suggest buds invest in better shipment options.

5 stars, This was my first piston operated AR. I am thinking of swapping ALL of mine to piston, VERY clean, smoth and reliable. Adams Arms has top notch quality. As far as it being a "blem", i have torn this weapon apart numerous times and still have found nothing!! Buds was Excellent as always!

Whoo-hoo! I feel like I really scored a deal on this one! The main issue I have had with the AR platform is cleaning them. A stint in the Marine Corps has given me "weapon-cleaning phobia". I have had several ARs over the decades and always move them along due to "shitting where they eat" issues. This rifle stays quite clean and the gas piston assembly is clever, simple, and robust. I ordered up some Magpul BUIS sights and didn't realize they are polymer. Since the front sight sits on the front gas block/rail-- long shot strings pose the risk of meltdown. I need to do something about this. Like the name says this is a base carbine and comes without sights or means to attach a sling. The quality is excellent and accuracy and reliability have been great. I have really only fired about 200 rds. so far but have had no issues with my reloads or Silver Bear. My buddy's other brand DGI AR choked badly on the Silver Bear. Clean-up has been a breeze and no more weapon-cleaning PTSD. It has fed reliably so far from vintage Colt aluminum 20 rd. mags and from brand new 20 rd. Pmags. Magazines have come a long ways and the Pmags are just about as slick as they come for $5.00. I strongly recommend this Adams Arms Base Carbine at any price!

It's a pretty basic gun but runs well. It eats anything I run though it. Bought it as a coyote rig but turned it into a home defense rifle with mid range capability. Had some trouble with sighting in the reddot I first put on it but that was rectified when I bought a little better glass.
