Yes, you are correct. If I was looking for just a .22 rifle it would cheaper. But with this rifle. It can grow with them. The stock will adjust as they get bigger and
when then time comes, they can put the real bolt back in and have a real AR-15. Uppers can be changed to different calibers and barrel lengthens also. Plus, let's not forget the obvious, it looks cool.
The real reason for the post was really to get some info out about the P-tac stuff. I couldn't find and info on the complete uppers when I purchased them. I think they are worth the price. Maybe not something you would want to take into battle, but a cheap AR that you can throw in the truck and ride around on farm with. And a fun pinker.
