I have a freind that is looking into buying an American Spirit Arms Flat Top AR w/ a 24" Bull Barrel for prairie dogs. Anyone have one or have any experiences with this manufacturer. I have been encouraging him to buy a Bushmaster, RRA or DPMS manufactured piece but has budget and his wife disagree.

Any experienced advice is appreciated. Please don't turn this into a bashing of one manufacturer over another.

Thanks,

DuxRus

I purchased a kit from them at a gunshow many years ago.....

The Quality was so so...... hinking.gif To their defense, that was awhile ago and I have not seen anything from them lately. However, there are so many choices out there that I would probably not buy from them again. FYI, I ended up selling my ASA.

They are local to me, and up until I ran into the 'owner' or whatever he was, I had no issues with the company at all.

Meeting the 'owner' changed my opinion of that company forever.

I'd rather go in for a root canal than have to deal with that individual again.

My rifle still works though.

There's that new guy who cruises the forums who claims he is the one in charge of running the business, and the owner isn't too involved with it anymore. He seems like a pretty good guy.

I just purchased the same rifle and I am vary pleased with the quality. I did take a week to get to me in Texas but I am still pleased with the quality at the price. I am bout to put a Leupold mark 4 scope on it so it should turn out to be a mitty fine rifle.

They have an industry forum here, but it appears to have been abandoned.
