I own one of these rifles and it has 250 rds through it (ik not that much but still) with no problems at all. All the reports on the internet say it's a great rifle and GTG. I just want to hear your opinion on this.

PS this is my first AR 15

Clean it, lube it, feed it good ammo, and it should be fine.

I only shoot brass cased ammo out of it and I use good lube like mpro 7 and a white glove cleaning.

That rifle will run forever. Don't sweat it. Spend a weekend going through a case of ammo, then clean it.

How many threads are you going to start about this rifle?
Edit:
Why buy the rifle first and then ask for info on it?
Seems kinda backwards don't it?

Read more, post less.

The sticky threads are your friends.

Worse case scenario is you sell the upper and get a better one.

Bit of buyer's remorse? You are fine.

Mags and ammo. Get tons of both.

Hooooooly smokes

More ammo ... I might have 270 floating around in my couch cushions. And yes... that is a good rifle. I like having a dust cover but SW puts out a great AR.
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 6:09:00 PM EST
They are good guns. I have an older one with a 5r barrel, sweet trigger, and its a shooter. It currently wears a Del-Ton Dissipator upper with an ACOG. It is my favorite AR. Clean it once in a while, and feed it good ammo, and it will run forever. Have fun.
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 7:19:50 PM EST
I have three of them and all run great.

I use them as my "loaner" rifles when I take new shooters or friends out to the range.

You did good OP on buying one and next thing you know you will be getting new parts for it and changing it around.
Take it out and shoot it
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 7:27:32 PM EST
Mags, ammo, sling. Go shoot it.

Don't change anything out until you have shot it a lot and know what you want. The Sport is a good rifle for the $$$$.

I have an MS1 sling on it and love it recoil isn't bad but I do hear the carbine gas system isn't good can anyone please expand on this because after 250 rds recoil is tame. I just don't see why the carbine gas system is "bad"???

You have asked the question several times, and in several threads you started only today. I get the feeling you want somebody to tell you what you want to hear, but I just don't know what that is. There are MANY threads here on arfcom related to gas systems. For new users, with only 250 rounds to their experience, I typically don't get into this too deep. You have a fine first rifle that you will likely never wear out. How do I know this? I don't, but I get the impression you won't shoot a ton every month.

Here is one of many charts related to gas system pressure, at given barrel lengths. The bad juju you hear about some commercial 16" carbine gas barrels is because SOME are over gassed.



Here is the ARTICLE

A carbine gas system on a 16" carbine is not optimal compared to a midlength but there are no issues with it.

Sorry about my thread posting in an info freak and I like hearing others opinions
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 8:09:30 PM EST
Mine was 100% reliable and very accurate with any and every ammo I tried, including Tula.

I sorta regret selling it because it was a very solid rifle but I wanted to buy a new BCM LW middy badly.

It may be WROL ready, depending on IF you have any role during that.

I wouldn't call it battlefield ready, but that's not what you asked.

It WILL indeed put holes into paper, probably with decent accuracy for what you paid.

I got one 3 years ago which was the 5r barrel version. I got on EE and found a JD Machines upper reciever and swapped it. Has worked flawlessly the whole time. Eats steel cased without a flinch.
