Is this chambered for 223 too? One area in the description says that and others do not.

Anything that's chambered in 5.56 can also shoot .223 (a little less accurate than a dedicated. 223 or 223 wyld). A dedicated 223 cannot shoot 5.56. But a 223 wyld shoots both 556 and 223 with the same accuracy (theoretically).

Lots of positive comments. They must have improved. Radical was pretty shoddy when they started. But I support Texas and USA so...go for it (I guess). If Primary Arms picked them up I guess they got better.

I live in California. Can I obtain this gun?

Not legally. In the configuration it is being offered in, it is not CA compliant. If I was in your shoes I'd deal with a gun seller/dealer/supplier who is located in CA. In today's market, these deals aren't bad:
https://www.ocguns.com/product/sw-mp15-sport-ii-ca/
https://www.ocguns.com/product/ruger-ar-556-featureless-stock-ca/
These are good options if you don't mind spending more $$$:
https://wbtguns.com/rifles/stag-arms-stag-15-tactical-california-legal-2...
https://www.springfield-armory.com/saint-series/saint-victor-ar-15-rifle...
There are other ready-built CA compliant AR15s available. You could contact one of the CA dealers linked above or any other reputable LGS and see what they have available or can get in for you. Good luck!

It should come with one 30 round mag. You could contact PA to verify.

How would you say it is compared to a S&W M&P2? This looks like it's better out of the box and also a better price point at the moment but the Smith has its name and bigger company backing. Wondering what your choice would be between the two?

That is a question that you, and many others would like answered. For me the lower price, and added features on this Radical Arms model, make it the clear winner. It has a free floating barrel that promotes more consistent barrel harmonics, which produces more consistent accuracy. The mid-length gas system produces less stress, and smoother cycling for the bolt (reduced impulse) due to the lower psi at the gas port. The 15" M-LOK handguard gives you the ability to easily add, and remove accessories in multiple places around the axis of the barrel. It also renders a longer sight plane than the Sport ll. The B5 Systems Bravo stock, and grip have earned the respect of many AR shooters for their quality, comfort, and ergonomic excellence, and are easily superior to those on the Sport ll.
Both of these rifles should serve you well. I hope my comments have been helpful.

Its simply about your budget as others have said. Radical makes a good starter rifle that is perfectly for home defense, range time or hunting. Would I choose a Radical rifle over a S&W if I was going into battle?, most likely not. However for the average joe who is on a budget the Radical rifle here is a good choice. It is made with the same materials as any of the other off the shelf AR's. In fact it is most likely the upper and possibly the lower are manufactured at the same facilities as S&W and other more expensive AR's. Most folks do not know that their are only a handful of upper and lower forging manufactures that supply the
"mass produced"AR industry. Yes there are smaller custom forges, I am simply speaking about these high volume manufacturers
You can tell by looking for the forging marks on the upper and lower. Most common ones are:
*CERRO- "Keyhole design"
*Mueller ent."A diamond"
*BSAF- "A square"
And then some simply use letters.
As I said there are alot of smaller forges but all the big name, high production rifles use mostly the high production forges that can keep up with demand.
Like Colt and and DPMS use
Cerro uppers for alot of their off the self rifles.
This is just a couple examples and Im sure if one dug hard enough you could find more but in general this happens alot. A majority of the price is soley what brand stamp is on the rifle. Not the sum of the parts. So thats why in my OPINION the Radical rifle is the best choice. During these times of ridiculous "panic buying" this deal is a good one for sure. Good luck, Hope this helps you decide.
PS, the person who down voted this deal is a tool... if these rifles "exploded" as he states their certainly would be all sorts of lawsuits, media coverage, liberal puke, etc... Maybe there was an incident or two. in the beggining of some bad product but I certainly would not believe this is a problem beyond that. The troll is most likely jumping on a single incident bandwagon story.... any company that would have the issues on a mass scale would be bankrupt immediately. Most likely an incident occured when some inexperienced jackass tried to build his own rifle and either used incorrect or inferior, cheap parts from china or didnt check the tolerances after assembly, etc. Almost always the type issues where someone claims incidents such as exploding rifles is because someone didnt have a clue on what they were doing and shouldnt have used crappy parts mixed with ignorance.
So dont believe what hes/shes saying.. its all hearsay.

Radical makes their parts in house. I cant imagine formulating a response that lengthy with so little pertinent information.

If price is an issue, the Radical is an easy choice. If you are looking at spending $750+, you can't go wrong with the S&W warranty and customer service. The problem is that the S&W rifles are going for $750+ right now and you get the crappiest furniture. If you don't care about adding accessories or how it looks, then that's not a problem. If you eventually think you'll upgrade the handguard, and maybe the stock and grip, all of the sudden your $750 S&W is turned in to a $1000+ S&W, so you have to wonder what else you could get for $1000+.

Good answer. For $1000, you are in Covid-priced Ruger MPR range. Has the upgraded everything.

Even though these are a few dollars more than fairly recent prices, with all the political and economical BS happening, all the panic buying and price gouging, this os a great buy. Radical arms are a good basic entry level rifles and pistols. I would buy these over any of the equally priced "polymer" rifles on the market. Not too many aluminum upper and lower rifles to be had right now under $600. Reviews are quite mixed but thats to be expected with alot of small companies selling entry level firearms. It is like asking whats better, A Chevy, Ford or Dodge... your gonna get fanatics and completely mixed and divided opinions and reviews. My experience has been positive with the one Radical arms rifle I own. It is reliable and built well. The upper and lower is a solid fit with no slop, it shoots about everything I feed it, although I have had light strike problems with russian made steel cased ammo. I swapped the firing pin with a wolf kit and it made a difference for sure. Other than a couple cosmetic changes such as a MFT minimalist stock and grip its good to go. I figured I best say that I have 11 AR rifles of various calibers, makes and models so I do have plenty to compare with as well as experience with these companies and products.
