Stay away from Vulcan.

I like the stock, but Vulcan is Junk.

Nobody here would ever admit to owning a Vulcan, even if they did and loved it, posting something like that would be against ARFCOM policy.

Some guy named Todd...

I asked the same question ONCE, and I learned not to ask such silliness, even if it looks cool. I won't ask again.

On paper it looks like a frickin awesome rifle.

4. Fully adjustable gas system that allows the use of different loadings
5. FAL style hand guards made from virtually indestructible polymer
6. Short stroke gas piston overcomes the shortcomings of the M16 system. It is cleaner, cooler, more reliable
6. Upper is formed from heat treated SAE 4130 steel
7. Full length M1913 Picatinny scope mount, co-witness with front gas block rail
8. Unique charging handle designed for ambidextrous use, use as a forward assist, and functions as a shell deflector

10. Last round hold open
11. Aluminum recoil plate

I would love a rifle with these specs. There’s only one word in that whole write up that I don’t like and that word is a dealbreaker for me…

Anyone want to guess which word that is?

Give you a hint, it begins with the letter “V” and ends with the letters “ulcan”

On paper, it sort of looks just like an AR-15.

From what I gather, its not the Vulcan that's the problem, its some guy named TODD.

Wow, cheap too.

Basicly, Vulcan is a substandard product. Especially when stacked against similarly priced offerings from manufacturers with a history of quality.

OK I'll bite... whats wrong with "TODD"?

So what if Vulcan became an AR15.com sponsor?

I don't trust Hesse quality. Some jackass ordered 6 of their AR10 clones on my dealer's license without notice, and I got to check them out before the FFL called him up and told him he's sending them back to Hesse.

The quality is lacking, the fitting is off, and stuff as basic as the selector was screwy (two of the six didn't work at all with the detent and spring installed - the selectors fell out, and one more had a terrible feeling selector)

Stay away.
