Can't do a search right now. Anyone know who made it? Is it a good shooter or just collector? Would you buy it if it had a bunch of wolf run thru it? Thanks, Cretescreeder

They are certainly worth taking a look at if one is available, the first LEGP is a sweet AR. The Wolf issue is very controversial, I don't shoot it myself. However if the weapon has been properly maintained, it would not stop me from buying one. I would buy it and clean it very well and from then on I would only shoot quality ammo through it.

Can't comment on how well it shoots, but I wouldn't let wolf ammo scare you away if that is the only thing between buying it or not. I've ran through quite a bit of wolf in full auto and haven't had any problems to speak of. It does seem to get the chamber a little dirtier than brass cased ammo but you just give it a little extra cleaning.

I like the fact that it's RR, that's what I have decided to get. The LEGP is also in the config that I want. The deciding factor will be price of a new one vs the price offered on the LEGP, (with goodies) This will be my first ar so the collector factor doesn't come into play, I want a shooter. I have read enough about wolf around here in the last two years that I probably won't use it. The pics I have on the LEGP shows to have very little ware so I guess it comes down to price. Thanks!! cretescreeder

There is a review of a DPMS model with very similiar specs in American Rifleman last month.
