They claim to have the best priced piston AR available due to large production numbers of initial models to drive the price down to $1100-ish.
I have $1000 for an AR right now and I am just shopping around. I didnt really feel I need/wanted a wiz-bang koolaide piston AR but at that price I could actually warm up to the idea? I have to admit I have never did look forward to cleaning the old star chamber on DI AR's. I know I have to clean carbon somewhere and if I can move that job to an easier place like a piston (vs the hard to get to star chamber) then I guess thats enough for me to justify a piston AR?
I know all the old school piston haters will chime in but please I have already heard (and supported) those views. I am not a piston koolaide drinker but my interest is peaked on this $1100 offering?
If you have the model 8 tell me why I should or shouldn't get one?
