    For those looking to use the AR platform for hunting, let me tell you this about the forward assist. Many times I have been in a stand and found I did not load a round in the chamber. As many know, your are not suppose to ride the bolt slowly b/ it just won't seat the round correctly. So as not to make that loud rack, I have found that riding the bolt and then hitting the forward assist and seatting the round has saved me a few times when I have an animal close to my stand and no round in the chamber. Just throwing that out there.

    I've own a 1500.00 Ruger SR556. It was piston driven. Loved it. It was much heavier than most ARs. Sold it and built three ARs for the same price.

    As much as I loved the ruger, I don't see why it's worth so much more for my uses. I much rather a more budget gun with more ammo and trigger time.

    You are just making entirely too much sense there

    To me it all boils down to purpose I have a cheap rifle and it shoots plenty fine. My Grendel is purpose built for competing with AT&T. I have a cheap 300BO pistol and a cheap 223. All have different tasks to do. If I had confidence in a cheap Grendel barrel I would have tried it but.

    I bought several Radical Firearms AR15's last year as presents and all were fine shooters with great entry level triggers. Made around Houston and $499.99 delivered to your FFL (through AIM Surplus).
    Agree with above posts that these "entry level" (inexpensive) AR's operate nearly as well, from a practical standpoint, as my Noveske, DD, LWRC and Colts at a fraction of the investment. Kinda like a "plain" 1911 with a few upgraded parts compared to a $3K custom 1911. But I am still a sucker for "high end" toys, lol.

    I have purchased 2 Radical Firearms uppers, one of em a 300 BO (without BCG and CH) for $200 at Primary Arms in TX. I don't know how they do it for these prices. The last one I purchased was a 12x42mm (50 Beowulf) with BCG for $440. I'll be taking it to the range very soon. You cannot find a complete 50 Beo upper anywhere else for < $650.

    Radical says they manufacture their own parts, but they have to be from overseas somewhere. People talk a lot of smack about Radical, but if you read the current user reviews, most are happy shooters. Radical no doubt had some QC problems initially couple years ago. PA stands behind anything they sell, why I took a chance originally. PA sells DD and Noveske too, they have them all there.

    My 300blk pistol is an RF upper. I went with them because of to factors:
    Price, it's hard to beat $250 with a free float hand guard in 300blk.
    And
    Function, I looked at a lot of offerings and asked a lot of questions and the more I asked the more I worried about buying a gun that is supposed to function un-suppressed with super and subsonic rounds without jacking with buffers, ports or blocks. On Radical Firearms sight they said they function test each upper with supers and subs before it's shipped. I was happy to find a standard carbine buffer and bolt work flawless with that upper.

    I built that pistol for less than $600.

    Ruger AR 556 is excellent. I have experience shooting 2 different rifles and both performed very well.

    I've shot several M&P 15 Sport II's... no problems. Ruger AR 556... No problems (actually like the "extras" and custom items ruger has on their AR).

    BCI, Aero... also both function very well.
