Huge competitor to M&P sport,

Huge competitor to M&P sport, Bushy, DPMS, delton type "lower end" carbines, and ORCs. if this had a 1:7 twist it would COMPLETELY blow the rest away for the price IMO.

With that said, one could build a chrome lined carbine from PSA for basically the same price during a sale.

This is OK, but once you add

This is OK, but once you add a good hand guard and low gas block etc, you're adding another $200

Looks like a hell of a deal

Looks like a hell of a deal to me considering PSA's with normal non CHF barrels were(are) selling for $700 and that still isn't bad. Best value I've seen in awhile. You even get all Magpul MOE gear. Unless you are going free float hanguard, this is worth it. It may be still even if you are. However, I haven't read the reviews on this new barrel but mid-length 16" for this price looks great.

When I saw this, I thought it

When I saw this, I thought it was the 1:8 wylde barrel that I got from PSA a couple years back, which to this date has been nothing but awesome (though a bit heavy for a 16").

I'm sure this one will probably be nice too, but compared to their most recent deals, this should have a free float hg, or piece the thing together by combining 2 of their current deals.

Thanks for the good info

Thanks for the good info guys. I swear the whole 1:7 vs 1:9 vs 1:8 thing confuses me and makes me pause most the time. 55gr is easy to find and figure up to 69gr is good for my use. Anything longer for accuracy I would be looking into a SPR or different round anyway. My use is for the 5 yard to 200 for my 16" barreled ar 15's. My confusion is because yes I shoot targets but that's practice for two legged threats to property. I just want to use the most effective bullet for stopping threats if they ever occurred. For longer range or hunting I would use SPR or bolt action.

exactly.. very true. Most

exactly.. very true. Most common cheap ammo is 62. Armalite and other references for 1-9 say up to 69. I have backordered 69gr bullets to test.. Been waiting for months. 62's work great though. 55's are perfect.

Is this a good deal guys? Seems decent but would prefer 1:8 or 1:7 twist. Any input?

my 1-9 armalite out shoots my

my 1-9 armalite out shoots my psa 1-7 fn uppers with 55s. 1-8's are a better compromise. They can run as heavy a bullet as fits in AR mag well (77gr). 1-9 will get u up to 69gr. That is more than most will shoot. i reload so I keep uppers of all sorts in my safe depending on what round I feel like running (depends on distance and how rich I feel that day). 1-7 is overkill unless u plan on running single shots since heavier rounds needing 1-7 wont fit in mag. Some say they also over twist 55s but all I can say for sure my 1-9 armalite is awsome. Sorry dont know much about this particular rifle to give you a feel for value. Everything looks great but wish I knew who barrel maker was..

Agreed. The 1:9 boogie man

Agreed. The 1:9 boogie man will not visit you by night and make your 5.56mm ammo suddenly useless and inaccurate. Up to 62-grain and you're GTG. Since most of us shoot 55gr or less, it's a non-issue.

Quote: "So what’s the answer? For most people, 1:9 is perfect. It will shoot the widest range of bullets, and will be especially good with the cheapest ammunition."
