My first purchase from Impact. Bought this rifle with the intention of a "Do-It-All" workhorse; you could say an all around AR-15 battle rifle with a little extra punch. Following this outline ive proceeded to mount a vertical foregrip/bipod, and an EOTECH with 3x. Switch from close to long range with the flick of the wrist.
Im VERY happy with my purchase, as stated on Armalites website, this doesnt have an imaculate finish, it is a mil-spec weapon that has one job and one job only: go boom each and every single time. it is quite good at that.
recoil is quite controlable, I installed a muzzle break, kicks no more than 5.56....seriously.
here it is, this nabbed that 5th star.
right out of the box, the cam key wouldnt clear the gas collector. had to shave a few thousandths with an ignition file. no biggie, but seriously a new rifle a guy cant even clean? bad juju
in conclusion? if you want a tough, stout rifle thats all business and no flash, buy it. my only complaint is it doesnt accept p-mags, but real men use metal anyways
