Are they any good? I see them advertised in Shotgun News and was just curious as to their quality and owner feedback. Thanks.

Eagle Arms is the same as Armalite. Made on the same tooling at the same factory and everything. Matter of fact it says on the side of the receiver a Div of Armalite.

PEACE OUT!

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but as I understand it, the only difference between the Armalite branded stuff and the Eagle Arms branded stuff is that the Eagle Arms branded stuff has a lesser warranty. Try their web-site, it might tell you more there. Below is a link to their history where it explains the whole evolution of Eagle Arms into Armalite.

Eagle Arm's barrels are unlined.

I've got an 20" Eagle Arms upper --- made by Armalite. The only difference is the bore isn't chrome lined which, theoretically speaking:

(A) isn't as durable
(B) is more accurate

Since I'm not planning on using it for going gonzo and rapid firing it till the barrel glows, I'm not too worried about point (A). And while I'm a reasonably good shot, my accuracy is more a function of my abilities rather than any rifle I've got so point (B) is academic. In other words, these are differences that don't make any real difference to me. SO...

Short answers:
Yes, it's the same as an Armalite.
Yes, it's a good rifle.
