5 of 5 Durable / Reliable / Excellent December 6, 2021
Reviewer: Tim Rarrat from Akron, IA United States  
Compared to what I was issued in the Marine Corps, I’d choose this rifle any day of the week. It’s durable, reliable, and I have had zero malfunctions. I trust it with not only my life but my family’s lives.

5 of 5 1st AR-15 and thrilled December 3, 2021
Reviewer: Joshua Drake from Charelston , SC United States  
I picked this up locally from a small store. They had a lot of AR’s in the store and they wouldn’t sell me a more expensive one- they said Radical is the one for me (and my experience/budget). They were right! I’ve enjoyed taking it to the range and getting it sighted in and putting tight groups at 50’yds my first time out. The quality is solid. I’ve taken it apart and reassembled it just to educate myself and everything is solid. Texas made too! I’m used to shooting 300wm long rifles- this AR-15 platform is a thrill!

5 of 5 Great reliable gun January 27, 2021
Reviewer: Cory Armstrong from Indiana  
I've  put a few thousand rounds through this rifle. It has never had any issue whatsoever. It will eat anything put through it. It is accurate and just a fun gun to shoot. Thank you radical for making a quality budget rifle. I would put this up against  any thousand dollar AR.

5 of 5 Exceeded all my expectations! January 25, 2021
Reviewer: Vince F from Sterling Heights , MI United States  
This company is truly a hidden Gem!! After doing all my research I decided to go with the Radical Firearms. The only attachment I did to mine was add a Sig Romeo5 red dot.  for me personally, that’s all I need.  You can instantly see the quality and craftsmanship put into making this awesome American made goodness. I am absolutely in love with mine and everyone I’ve told to get one has been equally impressed. I’ve also talked to the company via Instagram, and they always replied professionally and instantly. Keep up the good work!

5 of 5 Great Gun November 27, 2019
Reviewer: Marcus from South Florida  
After a ton of online research, I purchased Radical’s 16" 5.56 NATO Rifle with 15" RPR from my LGS and have definitely not been disappointed. I mounted Magpul flip-up sights as well as a Vortex Sparc AR red dot and have taken it out to shoot multiple times without any issues or concerns.  It has since become my most favorite gun to shoot. The only question I have which I haven’t found an answer to is why the company discourages the use of Remington UMC ammo. I’ve reached out to Radical Firearms but never heard back...
