Anyone have experience with the olympic arms AR plinker model?  A friend of mine saw one for $550 and was thinking about getting it.  I have never seen one and have no experience with oly rifles.  Good, bad, ugly, fair? What do you think?

Here's a link of a previous post on the forum that addresses several points of the Plinker.


Hope this helps.

I can't say from experience, just from what I read on here.  

From what I have read, the Plinker seems to be a decent cheap AR.  Of course, you will always get a couple of anything that mess up or break in some manner.  

For a little better rifle, you could spend a little more and get a PCR7 with forged upper and lower.

It just depends on your friends budget and intended purpose for the weapon.

Clear as mud??? [:D]

(I sell them so take my advice for whatever that is worth)

The Plinker is a low end price effective AR15.

The Plinker and PCR-5 are different only in cast A1 upper and cast lower.  Other than that, everything else is the same as the PCR-5, except price.

You get a lifetime warranty, not a 1 year like some of the other "name" brands.

I have converted a cast lower to full auto and it works fine.
