My project isn’t fully built yet, but this is a meaty, sturdy kit… It says “budget” but there are less expensive arrangements out there; however, after pondering the purchase for a couple of weeks I ordered it and was astonished to get it delivered to my door within the week… very pleased !!
I used this kit to complete my first AR build. It went together seamlessly, like any AR should. A couple of things stand out in this kit though. The buffer tube/spring was almost silent, which is a dramatic change from ALL the other AR platform weapons I've shot in past years. The dragons head nuzzle brake apparently throws a pretty good fireball, according to the RSO.
Overall, I'm happy with the quality of this setup. Shipping was a bit slow, but that can be attributed to the holiday season. For my next AR build, I'll be shopping here.
Kit was as shown in listing and assembly and function were excellent. Pistol grip was a bit of a tight fit and took some struggling to get mounted. Other than that was great for the price.
I finished the gun on wed. Night & took it out to a range on Friday. Me & the two guys with me had several guns to shoot that day & we're having a great time , then it was time to shoot this new one , Wow this thing is Awesome , it was a blast to shoot with no problems . I love the Dragons head flash suppressor, just an all around cool weapon ! Promo delivery , great quality. I will buy from SAA again.
