Anyone ever dealt with this company?  Looking for some feedback on them.

Specifically for the 799.00 special on the Basic M4 setup
fits the budget and would be my first AR

I don't think you'd go wrong with something like this:


or a Windham Weaponry MPC.

Thanks for the advice.
I saw the PSA link on an earlier one...I know there is no flip up rear site piece.  But it also didn't look like PSA includes a magazine either...the picture doesn't show one and there is no mention of one in the description unlike other ads they have.

I grew up in Davenport, Iowa and have only recently heard of duck creek armory in the last few years.  I have been in their store a couple times but have not been overly impressed with their packages.  Basically everything you see is something you could build out of a brownells catalog for the same price.  In an area dominated by bird and deer hunters who still rely on their trusty 12 gauge or grandpa's 30-06, these rifles probably seem pretty attractive.  Im sure there is a reason they have not branched out past gunbroker to the forums; we would peck them to death over mil spec issues in their guns.  Not saying they don't use reputable suppliers like LMT which is a 20 minute drive away, but one would think they would list LMT on their website as a supplier next to YHM and Midwest Industries if they did.  They do sell billet lowers for $149, Id probably pick one up if I was looking to build another AR.

Dont base your purchase off of whether it comes with a magazine or not.
Pmags are $11.
