They seem to have the engineering, and marketing down, but come on. A dual forwards assist, that also drops the bolt? I'm not a seasoned AR user, or any of that stuff, but I've shot a lot, and learned a lot, from reading stuff from serious gunners. It's definitely flashy. You can have one for a meager $2,785.

If people buy Jesse James guns, then I am sure they'll buy this too.

It's worth what the market will bear, and as useful as they will market it. rolleyes

I actually really like the design aside from the color and the dagger on the end of the barrel and rail. However, I doubt that dual forward assists are really necessary. Also, I would never pay that price for an AR.

This rifle is intended to address the tactical fringe (sucker) market.

Note the infantile tone of the guy in the video. It's a toy.

I agree Charles. You can really tell the type of person that is going to think this AR is cool or practical by listening to the guys tone/deflection.

ARs are getting out of control lol. What happened to functionality? Here lately it's all about who can trick out an AR more crazy than the next guy. I just want an AR that shoots straight and goes pow when I pull the trigger. Now functional upgrades I'm all for but these wild paint schemes with skulls and wild colors do nothing for me.

Agreed, and I sure can't imagine paying an extra $2k for them...

Hate to get poked in the AZZ with that "toy"

But really, if I didn't have a Seekins on order, I'd be all over this bad boy. And if Seekins doesn't hurry up and build mine, I'll cancel my order and but one. I have some "soul brother" in me somewhere down the tree grill

Wow Buzz that first line there is signature gold....

Soje quit being a hater.. J/K that thing is hideous. Lol I barely ever use my forward assist, I definitely don't need 2 of them. Although I did use it a few times this weekend my AR got so dirty from shooting suppressed it wouldn't chamber a round fully. Time to clean that bad boy LOL.

Been shooting M4s, m16s, and ARs for 10 yrs now and I don't think over used the forward assist other than when practicing SPORTS.
