no personal expierence, but i would just save my money and look somewhere's else--$2k for an AR that cant do anything that an AR from ABCDR or a personal build is not worth it imo

but if you got the $$$s, go for it, but i would just spend my cash on mags and ammo

I wouldn't buy one, but thats just me. Its pretty much an expensive rendition of a Rock River. Wilson only assmbles these, they are not a full blown manufacturer. They contract with Rock River for lowers and uppers, and a few other parts..

But if ya got the money, and want to, its your money, do as you please.

On that note, I recall my dad telling me story about their 1911's. Mind you, I paid over $2900 for an accucomp back in the day, so i was familiar with the product. The guy was a veteran marine, and a mucky-muck for a large government contractor, who was now in charge of running the operations side of the business. He said that he could build a better 1911 for under $600 bucks than one of the smiths thier could do for 3-4 times as much. The marine won...

Makes perfect sense. But I don't know your dad, and I'm not a smith myself. Maybe I can give him my Springfield and $600, and be in business

DOH..

point of correction.

My father worked for the Marine at Wilson.

But yeah, $600 worth parts in a shoebox, and you got a shooter.
