I had a Spikes rifle. It had more slop and shake than any AR I've ever had, they used Aero receivers on mine that had pot marks all over and used DPMS parts kit on it. There are much better rifles out there in my opinion for the same or close money.

I'd take a Rock River, Stag, Windham or S&W any day over one.

I had an AR back in the late 70's, fun gun, but I couldn't afford all the ammo I shot as it was to hard to keep that little switch on semi, so it's long gone. Wish I still had it now but wishes are to expensive to fullfill nowadays. Now it's my el cheapo AK that's always semi and it's fun to shoot too. Much easier to keep clean and has always gone bang with each trigger pull. Regardless of what many say I can't have it all and as much as I hate to compromise I have. The AK fills a want / need for me and I no longer need the cool look to get me through. $800 will buy a lot of 7.62 ammo for my not quite cool AK.

They make it sound good but I would have questions. One is why the standard F type Colt gas block. This tells me the uppers may have come from the same supply the lower end Bushy's do . Not a deal break just something to consider.
Right now Adams arms and Huldra along with some others are in that ball park with quality proven rifles
Also Huldra comes with 6 mags
LGS Fleet farm has a wide section of AR now from entry level Bushy to some high end 20 inch barrel models
priced from 700-2000

I saw the Adams Arms on slickguns for less than the spikes.

ETA-I was wrong, there's a 1 in front of the price that I didn't see

I've been seeing a few big name gun kits with "ATI" in the order code, meaning American Tactical Imports.
