The upper and lower are painted, so the wear points will show after a while. The mag catch was undersized for the size of the pocket it sat in, allowing it to move side to side more than it should. There was also something else wrong about taking the mag out, it wanted to bind. I sold it before I shot it. For the price of the mags, I would get the new classic version that has the swiss stock and uses AR mags. Thats my plan.

Oh, you didn't just go there

Nah, he shot, I loaded the mags. He actually has more rounds through the rifle now than I do

The nice thing is, he was able to group it, which I couldn't do when I went out...out of the box from the factory it's a smidge to the left, but that's it. Otherwise dead on, using the 100M aperature at 25~ yards.
