    Well for the money I think you can do better. I read the tech sheet, it doesn't look to bad. Things I don't like are the 1-9 twist barrel, the FSB is useless. I don't understand marking the barrel 223,556 they are not the same. I like that they test their bolts but why don't they test the barrels to, and M4 feed ramps are a nice addition.

    I guess I would pass If it was me I think your better off with something like a Colt 6920
    Colt LE 6920 at G and R Tactical

    Or a Bravo Company M4 mod zero
    BCM 16 M4 MOD 0 Carbine (OUT OF STOCK) at G and R Tactical

    Or the LMT M4 as it comes with a better buttstock and an optics compatible rear sight and would be my choice, But I would ask Grant the owner of this site to upgrade my bolt to the full auto verson same cost more metal is all.

    I own two Windam rifles. An Src 15 and the 20" Predator Exterminator. I paid 899.00 for my Src. Far below the suggested price. I love mine. Very accurate for an m4. 5.56/.223 just means it can shoot both. And mine eats anything you want to feed it. The trigger leaves a lot to be desired, but I replaced it with a timney. On both rifles. The fit if the two receivers is very good, an the finish is excellent as well. You will not be disappointed. My.02
