AR and flashlight are OK it's about as High as it should go the sight is not a good one and will eventually break. UTG is airsoft crap that has now transitioned to Tactical accesories, I have not seen enough to see if the quality inproved over the airsoft crap... I would pass at the current price. and Buy a Colt or DD

I would pass. I think it is just a hobby gun put together by the seller. Note: "Rifle has 16" barrel that is not chromed lined with an A2 flash hider. Lower has mil-spec trigger. Spike's does not sell non chrome lined barrels other than the Melonited and stainless and the seller would have stated that in the description if it was. The Bolt Carrier doesn't appear to have the Spike's logo laser engraved to further suggest it is a parts gun and not a factory Spike's.

If you are just going to take it to the range a couple times a year, then that will be fine. IMHO, I wouldn't waste my money on that. I would recommend saving a few dollars and getting a DD, Colt, or BCM and pick up a good used Aimpoint T1/H1 or Eotech for $300-$500.

Yeah I think I want a Colt 6920 after reading all of the forums and posts. However I would like to order an AR that I dont have to do too much to it once I get it.

something more along the lines of this one: http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=273274375

You can pick up a DDM4 with Omega X rail for around $1200 new.

You are going to end up adding and swapping parts around anyway. My suggestion is to just buy a base rifle, shoot it and figure out what you want to change. I'll be the first to tell you that the rails and all the "tactical" accessories look cool, but once you get them and not need them, you will then regret all the time and money you wasted.

So basically buy a stock Colt 6920 and then I can add a rail or an upper or whatever later on down the road?

Yes sir, or get the colt with the rail it is a smoking deal with the rail and BUIS alreay...

if you get the 6920 you will be amazed at the accuracy and reliability..

the best part is do your research and buy quality once,,
You can spec that colt out to be a real nice weapon with a few parts.

DSG has 6920s for $960 +/- shipped. Buy this rifle and you'll have everything you could want. Of course, the my humble opinion.

:supergrin:

I fixed the typos.

Your error on the price too. Not $690. They are $945 and out of stock.

I have no idea what I'm typing here. I meant to say $960 shipped. Mine was $945 + $12 for shipping = $957.

I apologise for the screw-ups. :shocked:

The seller is on crack.

You can buy a non-airsofted Colt or BCM for that much and add stuff that actually works.

hmm look at the sellers auctions, he buys a low grade Ar15 then puts about 100-150.00 of airsoft crap on it and jacks the price up 400....gotta love the free enterprise system

Yeah it's up to $1,200 now with 30 minutes left.

I got nothing against a Spikes, if it is all Spikes parts, and at the price Spikes sells them ($850). But everything on that gun is UTG.

27 bidders and it sold for $1225 :rofl::rofl::rofl:

For that cash You could have a brand new colt with rail AND a very nice light set up with money for mags and ammo... people amaze me.

and there is one born every minute...


The resale on that rifle with all the crap on it is about 550.

The Non chrome lined bbl is a killer at that price. Looks like all the add ons are kinda cheap to be honest. I think you would do better with 1200 bucks elsewhere!

It has some okay parts and some undesired parts. For the price you can buy a colt 6720 or 6920 an learn the platform properly and have a true "milspec" gun. I would stay away from that thing IMO.

That is ridiculous. WTH is with the non-chrome lined barrel? I actually really like Spikes, but that gun doesn't match the description of a Spikes rifle. Maybe he just dressed up a stripped Spikes lower? You can get a Spikes basic M4 for around $800, so I don't have a clue why anyone would justify another solid $400 for those crappy UTG extras. There are so many other quality AR's you can snag for that price.

I emailed the seller and it is a R-Guns upper.

Just some free advice: Look at Site Sponsors websites for deals. Gunbroker is like a guy selling **** out of his trunk in a back alley. Or at least know what to look for to spot bad deals like this one.
