Seems a little steep, sounds like its the cheapest you come by and want to jump on it, save you self the hassle and just wait for a sale on something that has a bit better QC and reputation. However if you like how it feels and it seems right buy it because they have a life time warranty.

Also look up on Google reviews, that way you pull from several firearms forums.

Olympic Arms K8 Accuracy

After looking though older posts..I felt this one needed one more post. I purchased my K8 last year (2011). Out of the box it was shooting sub .5 MOA and cloverleafs. I was truely amazed at the pin-point accuracy.

So well engineered that it can go head to head with any of my match 223 bolt guns in the cabinet.

Thanks Olympic Arms

I don't think you'll find a better shooting or better quality AR for anything near that price. I have several Olympic rifles/uppers and each and every one is amazingly accurate. If I didn't have too many rifles already, I'd be asking for a contact on the rifle you described.
