"I could have easily built 1 for what I'm going to have to put n to it to make it a nice dependable firearm. Stock is horrible. No mil spec receiver(which I was aware of). Bolt is cheap, and the trigger feels like sandpaper. Aside from that pretty nice rifle."

"For starters, this is not mil-spec rifle; however, it is a dependable one. Upon receiving it, it felt \"gritty.\" I gave it a good cleaning and lube. I removed the stock and replaced it with a Slide Fire (works flawlessly) Replaced stock hand guards for a rail system. First day on the range I put around 400 rounds through it. No jams or issues!!! Pleasant experience with CTD. Gun in my hand 5 business days after placing order."

"I am not an expert on AR-15s, as this is the first gun of this type that I have owned. However, after cleaning the gun and putting a good number of rounds through it during sighting and target shooting, the gun has performed really well! For a gun at this price point, I am very happy with it from a performance and ease of use standpoint. I would certainly recommend it to someone looking for this type of rifle without having to break the bank."
