People are going to get this twisted all the time.
Don't get too tied up in the AR "tiers", its bullshit for 9/10 people buying these.
You could give a good majority of us a PTAC barreled upper, tell us its some magic CHF hammer of Thor and I would think a solid percentage of the time, none would be the wiser. it would go bang, and there would be a mark on the target,
Some people on here make it sound like you should feel bad for owning a PTAC rifle/product. For the price, they are solid.
