How do you like your kit gun? Does it function reliably if kept reasonaly clean? I know it doesn't have the chrome lined barrel and such, but does this seem to affect the reliability much? I like the fact they have chambers that can accomodate the hotter 5.56mm ammo and this should help reliability along somewhat. What do you think of these after assembled? I plan on using a stripped RRA lower. Thanks.

I built one. Went together great, shot very nicely, no complaints.

I think you'll find that J&T gets near universal praise for its kits and service.

My J&T rifles have been extremely reliable, even with hot surplus ammo.

ive had mine to the range twice. its a 16" HBAR. i love it. i put it together in about 45min on a cheapie Century reciever (forged) built the whole thing just to shoot cheap ammo. fired a sampling through it of Q3131, Q3131a, XM193, SA, guat, M855 and 200 rds of Wolf. not a single failure in 400rds.

i built one of the full size a2's for a co-worker, functions& looks great! would be better if they parkerized their barrels instead of bluing them.

I just built a J&T M-4gery kit and its barrel is park'd. Wonder why yours is blued. FWIW, it went together like a dream and shoots great!

16" BullBarrel kit, went together on RRA lower, no problem, shoots great.

Just do it!

My M4 kit is more accurate than both my Bushmasters, but the chamber seems a little tight. Other than that, I can't see any appreciable difference in parts quality.

I'm planning to buy another upper, an A2.

I have 2 ARs built from J&T kits, the first one that iI built was the 20inch Hbar, then i built the M4gery, the 20 is on a PWA lower, and the M4gery is on a RRA lower, each weapon has over 1000rnds through them with no problems.
