I like this AR so much I bought a second one. One has iron sights, the other has a red dot. Both easily find a 4" paper plate at 100 yrds. Fit and finish is excellent. You will not be disappointed. (Posted on 10/6/2017)

GREAT purchase and for an excellent price. Bought simple red/green dot with no zoom and was hitting plates pretty easily from 100 yards. Can't wait to get back to the range. Ordered a better scope and bi-pod for some long range shooting. The build quality is fantastic and i haven't had any issues shooting. I would buy this gun again in a heartbeat. (Posted on 7/21/2017)

Bought this after recommendation from my son (who also owns one). It's everything I expected it to be. Only 20 rounds through it right out of the box with no problems. Added pop up iron sights and cheap red dot. My only complaint is the front rail is slightly off center so when I mounted the iron sights the front sight is off. For $479 (and $75 dollar rebate) you can't beat this rifle. Buy it you won't be disappointed. (Posted on 6/30/2017)

very satisfied Review by traf
Quality

very pleased. I was new to the AR-15, but now see no reason to "do better" than what I did. I tried different scopes/sights and chose to go with a reflex dot. If that should fail, I can always flip up the iron sights. I wanted something that could place a number of shots at about 1000ft., and this can do that. As part of my home/property security/defense, this was a good addition. Could I build my own custom weapon now, yes, but see no reason to do so. I bought mine while on sale and building your own is not to save money, but to get what you want. I've got what I want with this one. I do keep it well cleaned and "greased". I do not shoot hundreds and hundreds of rounds thru it, as I just need it to work when I need it and it does. (Posted on 4/7/2017)

I did a lot of research before buying this AR. This is my first AR and I didn't want to break the bank so I asked a lot of questions.

I will tell ya this if you are looking at a DPMS and ask different people prepare for a lot of negative comments.

I have had multiple email conversations with the customer service department. They continue to tell me my refund will be credited to my card within 2-3 days. I will believe it when I see it! In the meantime I will do no more business with RK Guns. (Posted on 12/9/2016)

Great price, apparent good quality, so far- outstanding functioning Review by Rat
Quality
Price
Value
Purchased online at RK and had delivered to nearby RK store. I have some experience with AR rifles and carbines through military and law enforcement, but am not an expert. Field stripping and cleaning revealed to me the quality equivalent with higher priced ARs.
I combined this with a Bushnell TRS-25 red dot from another vendor, and fired the first 100 rounds without a single misfeed using Winchester 55 grain .223 ammunition, and the included 30-round magazine as well as some miscellaneous 20-round magazines. At 50 yards I found it to be very acceptable and accurate.
However, if I was younger and this was going to be my only carbine, I probably would opt for the Smith and Wesson for about $100 more that included the fixed iron sights for co-witness.
But for my purposes, this was a perfect price to experiment with red dot optics, since I'm losing the ability to get accurate shots with iron sights anyway.
Once zeroed at 50 yards I had no problem obtaining consistent center-body mass hits and head shot hits.
Intend to zero at 100 yards next time out, but didn't want to push my limitations- as I am satisfied the increased range will not impact the limitations on this weapon. (Posted on 10/4/2016)

I am impressed with this gun.... I topped rifle with a Nikon p223 scope ( 3x9x40 ) Nikon P Series is an offset pair of mounts and scope rings, for shots over 100 yards then topped that with a Burris TRS-25 red dot for shots under 100 yards. Replaced front hand grip with a quad rail and a bipod and a fore grip that has a light and laser. The scope is easy to sight in and the rifle had no issues with ejecting brass case ammo.

Rifle has great accuracy and shoots great groups. I used a cheap scope and lower end ammo. No problems shooting cheap Russian ammo (even thought the manufacture doesn't recommend), no misfires after a few hundred rounds. Trigger is a little hard to pull and I will need to adjust. Seems to be very quality made. This is one of the better, if not the best low end AR 15s. If you want an introductory model, this is it. Recommend following manufacturer's advice and keeping it well oiled. Very satisfied. (Posted on 8/22/2016)

After firing weapon found barrel nut had come loose, this happened because the factory neglected to install shims which misaligned the gas tube which did not allow the barrel nut to properly seat or proper torque placed on nut.

I bought this rifle in July 2015 and have loved it since. Problems are there are no iron sights included of any kind. The bolt carrier's cam pin broke after about 50 rounds. I got a nickel boron coated carrier which runs smoothly in the upper. The trigger is very sensitive which I love. So when you buy this rifle buy sights or an optic. Also buy decent ammo because I've had misfires from ammo called independent ammo. Other than that this rifle is a real good piece of weaponry. (Posted on 1/23/2016)
