    Get it.
    I just ran 100+ rounds through mine.
    300 or so since I got it in October.
    No hiccups so far.

    That is a horrible deal. When you pass that rip off up let me know how to get my hands on it. (Insert some kind of fancy smilie here)

    I would buy it.

    Unless you work for wally world, no good. Still a one shot deal for me since I worked the black friday sales. Just wasn't sure how good they were since most people were buying the more expensive ones

    Not a terrible deal, but their quality control isn't very good. YMMV - some are good, some won't function straight out of the factory, and others will snap the bolt.

    The Sportical stock is goofy and horrible.

    One thing to be aware of - not that I'm sure it makes a difference - is that the Sportical's upper receiver is extruded and not forged.

    It is just a bare bones AR and most people want something fancier. If you want something to build up and make tacti-cool then spend more. If you just want one to send some rounds down range then go for it.

    I believe if you bought it and decided to go higher end you could easily sell it and get your money back at that price.

    I've put about 800 rounds through my DPMS classic 16 without a problem, simple is good. These AR Are simple to clean, upgrade and repair. You'll love it!
