I do not have one but my mate does... they are superb. And I'm a bit bummed that they dropped the price after I settled and bought the SIG last month. They were originally about 1100 bucks!

I wouldn't buy anything that was related to the defense of Troy.

It didn't work for the Trojans.

With the current sale, these things are being picked up left and right. Good specs and early reports of quality are good. It's a lot of AR for the money.

The Troy components are excellent.

The BCG and barrel (really what matters in ARs) are unknown. The won't say who makes them and to what specs they're made. But, at the price they're selling them for unless they're made by a Freedom Group company (DPMS, ect...) they're a good deal.

Are your mags dropping freely? Seems to be hit or miss as to whether a PMAG or USGI will drop or have to be pulled out.
