After seeing a Fulton Armory AR-15 upper in action over the weekend, I wouldn't hesitate to order a Fulton Armory product. I've been surfing thier website for a week trying to figure out what my next ar purchase is going to be.

So the Krieger Barrel is a match barrel? ANd the stock barrel of the peerless is chrome lined?

For $2200, you could buy a standard Springfield M1A, a Garand (CMP) and a 1903A3 rifle.

I have a Fulton Liberator carbine and a classic 20" flat top upper. Really top notch gear. No issues. So these cats do quality work and really care about the customer. I had Walt and Clint working with all of my questions!

As to whether the "peerless" is worth it, it really depends on 1) checkbook 2)Are you looking for a battlerifle to shoot mil-surp or 3)do you want a hand fitted precsion rifle that requires greater care all around?

Now, to be clear, I'm NOT saying that a rack grade rifle doesn't diserves as much love, care and respect as a jazzed up match grade rifle. What I'm trying to point out is the difference between uses. Example: When you go prone with the rack grade, you won't mind laying it on the ground and then brushing off the dust...with the peerless, you'll want to use a silk hanky to dust off your baby. The mindset is different when you're using a $1200 vs. $3000 rifle.

I have managed to shoot ~1" 4 shot groups several times at 100 yds with my iron sighted USGI M1A, from prone and bench, using milsurp (Port, Aussie, and South African). I usually manage to pull the 5th shot out of the group-but that is a reflection on my shooting skills, not the rifle.

Unless you are a serious bench rest competitor, the standard chromelined barrel is plenty accurate.

If you want a Fulton, by all means get it. They are supposed to be a great rifle. I would also prefer to get as many USGI parts on my rifle as possible, which is something you probably won't find on new production Springfields. I don't think you would go wrong by buying an older Springfield built with USGI parts, and would certainly save some $ by doing so.

I am building an M4 type, only I am using one of Fulton's A-1 C-7 uppers. All I can say is that the quality is outstanding. Last weekend I installed a Bushmaster 14.5, M203 canfigured bbl. with the Ak flash on it. the parts for the upper were from Fulton also. Excellent quality. Everything went together just dandy. I had ordered one of Fulton's GI complete bolts and bolt carriers about two weeks ago. As of yesterday it hadn't arrived, so I called them. The girl checked and then told me it was being assembled as we spoke. She said it would arrive Wed. However when I got home from work tonight what did I find waiting for me but a brand spanking new bolt and carrier. Beautiful piece of work. Chrome-lined and all. Talk about fast service!

It is now nestled snugly inside of my Fulton upper. Intend to fire it this weekend and see what happens. Btw, it is on an Oly lower. Hopefully next month the upper will be sitting on top of a Fulton lower. After that I am going to shoot the crap out of the Oly plinker and so how it holds up. In any case I highly recommend Fulton. They may be a bit pricey but you know what they say about what you get. And if your wondering I am going to put an Vltor collapsable on Fulton. Rest in peace AWB and I hope a stake is driven through your heart.

If your looking for a fun gun shooter ... Shooting Military surplus ay the range and not going to shoot this rifle in a Sanctioned Match... Get a STANDARD.... Now if your into shooting Matches.., Get the Peerless. IMO. I think you would have alittle more fun with a Standard, ( Cheaper, Chromed line barrel, and not as concerned with scrathes.. ) . I have a SA NM and two ea Standard Service grades M14 . I shoot the Standards 4 to 1 over the NM. A Chromed barrel will last at least twice as many rounds vs a non chromed Match barrel IMO. It's really what do you want???? A very Nice NM rifle or a Very Nice Standard ( closer to milspec ) ..... Anyway you go Fulton is top Knotch and glad your getting one of the best Battle rifles ever made....... WarDawg

I remember one of the young dudes who worked the counter at a local gun was showing off his tricked out Supermatch M1A. With the glass on top it was about 3 grand. Too much rifle for the likes of him. Hell, too much rifle for me since I'm not looking to pop hostage takers.

So what does the owner tell me, while shaking his head, the following week? He recounts the tale of this dude going to the range and firing the cheapest crap he could find, despite being told it would be a sin to do so. He had to send it back to Spring Field with a round lodged in the barrel...

Match the weapon to the task, the ammo to the weapon. If you buy a peerless, the ammo better not come out of a box with chinese writing on it.

You may want to go with a standard and work your way up. You'll sure have lots of fun and not worry about dings...and save a large chunk of change.
