The gun feels good to hold (once you get used to a BP design) It looks solid and feels like a shooter. It performed well at the range and got a lot of interest. It was not too happy with the LAR 15 mags but worked well with all other AR mags. I have to be honest and sorry if I offend any retailer selling the product but after further inspection of the internal parts I have to question the longevity of this firearm. Perhaps time will tell. Hard time to impossible zeroing a scope due to the height of the position to mount so perhaps the flat top would have been a better choice. Even with clean ammo the gas tube became very dirty very quickly with a small amount of ammo. The ease of disassembly though made the gun easy to clean. Oh yaw the mags can be easily inserted upside down. Sounds like a no brainer but is surprisingly easy to perform this mistake and once is all it takes. This WILL break the flimsy mag hold open tab and render the last shot bolt hold useless. Yes being in a privileged occupation to be able to repair this mistake proved beneficial, please ensure you do not do the same mistake. But a fun gun to shoot cheap 556, go for it if you have a few extra $ for a Bull Pup.
