Rated 5 out of 5 by Good AR-15 I can only say good things about this rifle! I have put around 500 rounds through it since I got it and have had no problems what so ever! October 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome beyond words Apart from the title suggesting that the review cannot be put into words I would like to detail the overall quality and performance of this piece. First off, this rifle is super the specs in comparison to other rifles. The difference really is how well put together this rifle seems. Other rifles feel bulky and shifty, this rifle is tight with little to no wasted areas. The accuracy of this rifle is spot on. You will have to purchase basically all your own optics, but wouldn't you do that anyway??? I've been able to install everything I've wanted without paying for items I don't need or can't use. The price of this rifle is unbelievable. Most people I know paid at least double for their gun and the quality is just not there especially for the price. I would've easily paid five hundred more dollars without question. So far I've fired over two thousand rounds without a single thought of a jam or misfire. I would absolutely recommend this rifle.

Staff Answer
If your rifle is chambered in 5.56 NATO it is safe to fire both .223 and 5.56 NATO.
