Quality wise, they are a wonderful value for the price.
If I were looking for another, I would offer $1150 out the door.
Still probably a good deal as it sits, but it’s a buyers market.
They have made piston guns for quite a while. They only recently started making DI guns. I believe it was for the DoD contracts that started it. Many “three letter” Gov agencies are using LWRCI ConUS and overseas
The way it sits, that's probably a fair deal, even better if you can get it for less. I see that this is probably a gas gun, I have an LWRC piston upper and it works like a champ. They make a good product.
I’ve had an addiction with the M16/AR15 since I first shot a GM Hydromatic in June of 1985. I bought my 1st AR in 1989, it was a Bushmaster A2. Over the years I’ve owned a few rifles. Everything from an Armalite to a Troy.....they are extremely addictive.
As far as the LWRC, I recently picked up a .308 REPR. The quality is damn good, the assembly is phenomenal, the features are astounding for a gun of this price. Ambidextrious features, stunningly perfect machining, innovative design. LWRC is a damn fine value......they shoot well also.
The only con, as I see it, is the rail setups are usually proprietary. Not an issue if you like the way it’s configured, but a problem if you care to change it down the road.
