5 of 5 Best 5.56 For The Money Hands Down April 25, 2021
Reviewer: JT from North Carolina  
This rifle is amazing. Right out of the box it worked perfectly. No problems with any of the ammo I've run through it. Very reliable haven't had any issues on the range after 1000 rounds. I added a Geissele H2 buffer and braided spring to make it even smoother. Running a Holosun Red Dot. Added Magpul QD end plate, magpul CTR stock, magpul MS4 sling, Magpul front and rear sites, magpul trigger guard, magpul MOE K2+ grip, light with pressure switch, magpul MOE mags, new safety switch, and Cmmg ambi charging handle. Still have less than $1300 invested. It's a beautiful rifle that works flawlessly. Right out of the box it gets the job done but leaves plenty of money in your pocket for upgrades. Thanks Radical!

5 of 5 Great Solid Rifle!!! January 9, 2021
Reviewer: Steve from TX  
I bought this in 2020 and was very happy with its performance and durability. I threw hundreds of rounds through it with cheap Russian steel case ammo and it had no issues. I would recommend this rifle.  It is a solidly made rifle and fun to shoot.

5 of 5 First AR-15 June 15, 2020
Reviewer: CB from Michigan  
I have only put about 200 rounds of 5.56 FMJ (as well as maybe 50ish .223 SP) through this AR-15(same SKU on my box) but I have not had any issues, no jams, no malfunctions of any kind.   It's my first rifle (and gun for that matter) and I am loving it already, I've already purchased some rails for it and I can't wait to upgrade it.  About $700 and I was out the door at my local gunstore with some basic ironsights (and cleaning kit and some ammo all included in that price!!) just to learn the basic function and feel of the rifle.    This was in contrast to well over $1000 for any other rifles like S&W.

5 of 5 Great Budget Rifle September 8, 2019
Reviewer: AG from Maryland  
I was skeptical at first buying this rifle because I never heard of Radical Firearms but I am very impressed with this rifle, very lightweight and nice build quality for what I would consider a budget, entry-level AR. Sights were not included so I slapped on a Vortex RDS and went to town, right out of the box at 25 yards pretty accurate, still dialing it in.
