Holy moly, this rifle is amazing. I've always been a fan of the older style AR-15s and this delivers! I've had tons of experience with the AR-15 platform from my time in the Army and deployment, and tell truth, no difference. This rifle is super light (having a pencil barrel and A1 upper) and dead accurate. Ran 100 rounds through it first time at the range and no malfunctions, took me 10 rounds to zero, the magazine it came with is awesome, no complaints. Buds Guns shipped really quick and the price was unbeatable! If you're looking for a plain Jane AR-15 that will work and hit the mark every time, this is it. And for anyone who MAY complain abut not being able to mount things on this rifle like the newer AR15s (optic ready and what not), its replicated after the CAR-15 from vietnam, it isn't suppose to. This is for the iron sight enthusiast who wants a light rifle. Again than you Buds Guns for the fast service and great prices.

gun! No problems what so ever. The sights were dead on right out of the box. The manual FULLY explains how to take it apart for cleaning. If your looking for an affordable AR15, this is it

Great weapon worth every dollar! Fires 5.56 NATO or 223 Rem with no problems. Glad I got DPMS especially since I am not limited to just 223 like some of my friends. Very accurate to shoot. Have not had any problems with 30rd factory mags. Have some Brownells 20 rd mag that work great also. Factory supplied sling is a little short for me. Factory manual says not to shoot non-US made ammunition or warranty void. Been shooting PMC 5.56 X-TAC and 223 boattail just fine. I consider PMC US ammo even if it is now made in South Korea.

Purchased this weapon for my wife. She zeroed it with four rounds and fired another 20 through the first time out. There were no problems at all with function of the weapon. I am having some difficulty removing the fore grips for cleaning. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. I will be purchasing another before the end of the year. I highly reccomend thise firearm.
