(5 out of 5) Another awesome Ruger rifle!
by from Eastern Panhandle, WV on

Great AR15 for the price. The fit and finish of the Barrett Brown Cerakote is flawless and looks and feels amazing. The gun looks, feels and shoots like a Cadillac at a Chevy price. No malfunctions using all different types of ammo breaking it in. Gun is extremely accurate with the free floated barrel and is extremely light.
