Purchased this rifle about 6 months ago, price was a bit higher then. Rifle is typical Colt quality, good upper /lower fit, has free float handguard. I am not a great bench rest shooter but can get fairly consistent 1 1/2 inch groups over sandbags at 100 yards with PMC XP193 55 grain. This rifle does not have a forward assist or dust cover which are superfluous for most users anyway. If you cannot chamber a round using the indent on bolt with your thumb the round should be cleared anyway. What you get is a nice light and accurate rifle with Colt quality for a reasonable price.
