questions about an AR

Am I jealous! Girlfriend plunked down a ten dollar bill on a VFW raffle for a new rifle. She wins!! She gets an AR15 style rifle from Olympic Arms in .223. Has the extended flat top (about 3/4" higher than a regular one). The barrel is a heavy stainless 1:10 twist barrel with "J&T 10" stamped on it. Has an 11 degree target ground and is very heavy for an AR. The buffer spring is also very heavy for an AR style rifle. Rifle came with a Simmons scope mounted on it, and has another mounting block out on the barrel. The forend is round metal that does not touch the barrel. The thing must weigh 2.5lb. more than my Bushmaster HBar.

Anybody here ever own one? Or at least shoot one? On the website they show a $900 and a $1300 dollar one. How do you tell them apart?

    I was simply asking if anybody had shot one, and discribed what she had. No more no less. I shoot a Bushmaster Hbar and it's a little different. I didn't realize I'd get my head bit off with the inquirey, and perhaps should have asked in a better place
