Times social club one said: Look at all these rumors
They're surrounding me everyday
I just need some time, some time to get away. I picked up a SOCOM 16” BMD brake upper from PA for $199 delivered. Shoots 2 MOA- ammo dependent. quite happy, surprisingly. Flat shooter, they on sale on the reg in different versions at primaryarms.com

If you really have a complaint on a $399 rifle then maybe your the one that needs to help, you can buy a Daniel Defense for around $2000 and it comes with a mil spec trigger and no sights! the B5 stock, grip and magazine is worth $100 buck alone. from what I've seen this are solid rifles from a company that's from the USA and has a warranty. I don't own one but my son does, 16' 300 BO and its been a solid performer.

The problem with Radical Firearms is lack of consistency. You might get a B5 stock and ambi safety, or you might not, despite they all have the exact same model number/UPC. This is some shady business practice.

I disagree. That could happen on factory-direct orders, but it is far more likely to happen on items processed thru the supply chain to the online buyer. Buyers should cross reference the factory's product description, and pictures with the ones displayed by the seller, and search out answers for any questions before placing their order. This process also helps you to identify products, and dealers you may want to avoid.

All recent batches of from Radical Firearms don't have ambi safety despite the picture / spec on both RF and dealer website claims otherwise. Radical Firearms is the company you want to avoid.

Are you aware that us other folks can see that you've been patting yourself on the back by upvoting your own comments? As a way to level the intentionally skewed score, upvoting oneself gets a downvote from me every time I see it. I realize you're new to this website. Hopefully you'll find this helpful, as intended.

Sorry to go off this chain but I don't see another one on a deal I found on a Radical Firearms .223 Wylde/5.56 NATO Semi-Auto AR-15 Rifle 18" with a stainless barrel for $420. This would be my first AR, would you recommend going with this 16" setup or the "18" stainless barrel? Thanks!

My opinion, buy this 16" 5.56 from Kentucky....you get lighter weight, easier to maneuver, more forgiving chamber, and free shipping. The Radical 18" SS in Wylde is a good deal as well, with a softer shooting gas system and slightly more accurate.

I recommended this to a friend, but when he received it and started shooting it, cases came out distorted. 3 different types of factory ammo did the same, and Winchester White Box actually burst a case. It appears the chamber was badly cut. We'll see how Radical CS is- I've had good luck with them in the past, and the rifle is with them now.

6/4/2023 - I watched a couple of videos about this problem two days ago. Some RF-15s built and shipped in Feb and March of 2023 had barrels with improperly cut chambers. Before taking possession of one I'd drop a round, a non-deformed empty brass case or snap cap into the chamber and make sure it fits snug with no wiggle. Watch these two vids in order for details of the problem and the resolution. Personally, due to the Dude's language (which doesn't bother me) I wouldn't play these vids without wearing headphones if there are any young'uns or language sensitive folks within earshot.
Some of the comments to the vids are interesting as well. This snipped quote is from a comment posted by the Youtuber: "Also you shouldn't be giving PSA a pass either. I am directly responsible for the Gen2 KS-47. All their changes they made from Gen1 were from my videos showing all their problems and their marketing director lying on other youtube channels about it. I used to have public videos documenting their problems until youtube changed their educational policy" - I don't have any reason to doubt that. Watch the vids and see what yall think. I hope this ordeal prompts Radical to improve their QC and CS and start shipping the brass from the test fired rounds with the firearms.

I watched both videos. It was good to hear that a member of RF's management team put on his Big Boy Pants, took ownership for the series of screw-ups, and fixed everything. The first video gave the company detailed notice that their QC, CS, and repair service all had issues that needed to be addressed ASAP. I think legitimate detailed complaints help companies identify, and address weaknesses. "You can't fix something if you don't know it is broke."

We fix Radicals all the time, Bad QC mixed with high volume is a bad recipe. Buy a better quality gun if you can. The old saying "you get what you pay for"

Sorry that you got a lemon. I guess they can’t all be winners. But the lifetime warranty should live up to its name. They should get you all fixed up. At $400, you could easily do worse

What is the difference between this and the Anderson AM-15 they had months ago?

Pretty damn good deal in that you’re getting a B5 stock/grip, 15 inch free float rail, and a mid length gas system. And you’re getting it for cheaper than a stripped PSA or Anderson rifle.

I don't know what to pick between this or the Anderson AM-15 with BCM handguard that KY Gun Co has for pretty much the same price.

That BCM handguard is polymer. I’d take any cheap free float 15” aluminum rail over a plastic 10” BCM, Geissele, or Larue handguard any day. This will also run cleaner since it has a midlength gas system as opposed to Anderson’s carbine length system. It’s furniture beats Anderson’s m4 stock, and A2 grip too.

IMO, based on value (what you get for what you pay) this RPR 556 B5 Bravo model has been the best budget AR on the market for the past few years. For $399.99 shipped you're getting a solid proven AR with many desirable features, and a lifetime warranty.

1/24/2023 - Yep. Good deal. In addition to this model, right now KyGunCo has three other models also priced at $399 shipped. One other chambered in .556 with a different handguard. Another chambered in 300BLK. And another (a 1st for KyGunCo ) chambered in 7.62x39. They all are equipped with the B5 Systems stock & grip. I think they all have an ambidextrous safety.
All 4 rifles can be found on this page along with a short-N-sweet video that shows them: https://www.kygunco.com/video/radical-firearms-rf15-deal...

I have to agree. The component list on this makes for a very smart value at $400 and is a tempting deal. I'd like to see how it does after 5k rounds. Radical has made a lot of positive changes since they started. I'm curious about the warranty and customer service...I see that removing the hand-guard voids the warranty.

Where did you see removing the handguard would void the warranty? If nothing gets damaged. How would they know, and why would they care that it had been removed? I looked over their warranty and it appears to be about the same in scope and wording as PSA, and Aero Precisions. This sounds to me like some owner got heavy-handed and stripped the handguard screws and got his warranty claim rejected due to negligence on his part.

I called Radical and asked about this. A nice feller named Alex answered the phone on the 4th or 5th ring. He didn't know the answer and put me on hold for two or three minutes while he got the answer from someone else who knew. Yeah, stripping the threads then expecting Radical to fix it under warranty is the cause of the 'don't remove handguard' clause. He said it's fine to remove the handguard if need be, just don't strip the threads. Like I said, he was a nice guy, and professional. He mentioned more than once that if I had more questions or concerns to feel free to call back anytime, that's what they are there for. He emailed me their "order of operations" procedure for removing and installing the handguard. I'll paste that here:
Email Subject: "Order of Operations when removing parts on your AR. CAREFUL NOT TO VOID WARRANTY"
Email Body:
Hi xxxxx,

I just spoke to you on the phone

Please follow these order of operations while installing and removing the screws to minimize stripping incidents.
1. Insert/remove center horizontal long screw first.
2. Insert/remove horizontal long screw closest to lower receiver.
3. Insert/remove vertical short screw.
Using more than 30 inch pounds on a torque screwdriver will stripped the screws.

Thank you,
Alex

Thanks for the very informative update. It sounds like Radical Firearms customer service and tech support are very willing and prepared to assist their customers. That should be very reinsuring to potential buyers.

Well, that's a pretty generous conclusion considering a sampling of one, and the fact they are contradicting themselves.

Ref. your other questions, I don't know how they would know, but I can think of several ways to keep the work identified. At least one complaint stated that the hand guard had one specific screw which was perhaps purposefully seated to prevent removal without notice. Limited liability warranties can be a can of worms, which is why I wondered about Radical's current customer service model and warranty specifics, and if others had feedback. They do not have a banner history, but I'm willing to overlook it if they have improved. Other brands have similar sounding warranties on their face, but also have a name and actual practice which lends credence to the warranty. Geissele, for instance, voids the warranty for removal of the castle nut, but typically just chastises the customer instead. As a side note, this is theoretical rambling from me, as I care little about warranties on budget guns except for resale or customer purposes. And I agree that many instances involve unrealistic complaints from amateur gun mechanics. Overall, I'm just curious if Radical's products and practices match the apparent value and current rumor.

Just FYI, Radical calls all of their barrels “SOCOM” profile, but they’re really just regular government profile.

At $700, this like a good deal in these uncertain times.
