Reviewer: Nich from Kentucky  
I have had my AR for almost six years. It has performed flawlessly.
For the price point this rifle is a winner!

3 of 5 Rough tooling March 23, 2022
Reviewer: Jeremy Hurst Lamano from N/A  
I realize it's a " budget" rifle but I don't have confidence in its long-term performance. The feed ramps are gouging the bullet and there is an occasional failure to eject. Thinking of just buying a bcm bcg to make sure it'll keep running. The m4 feed ramps need deburring big time. Not sure if I'd purchase another. I've sent 2 emails with no human response. I'll keep shooting it and if it quits running I'll send another set of emails.

5 of 5 Perfect for first time AR15 buyer April 7, 2021
Reviewer: BC from Houston, TX  
I am new to carbines and found this one as an inexpensive option for a first time purchase on Brownells and pulled the trigger, so to speak.  I couldn't be happier.  All I added was a Bushnell red dot and Magpul iron sights.  My first time at the range was a great success.  I zeroed at 25yd and then proceeded to the 50yd range where I got fantastic groupings.  100yd was only impeded by my poor eyesight and would have benefited from a magnifier.  My shooting partner who built his own AR15 was most impressed with my rifle and its price point.  I couldn't be happier with my Radical Firearms purchase.
