This is an outstanding firearm!
This is an outstanding firearm! Excellent function and accuracy even out past 400 yards. This pistol brace is the best out there, not cumbersome like most. Every part on this firearm is high quality with the exception of the ambi safety selector. I would like to see steel parts there instead of polymer. The minimal weight savings gained on this safety is much less important than durability and reliability. Even with the stock safety which was cheap to replace, this gun is a 10! I own several other ARs and will begin replacing most of them with Daniel Defense ARs. YES, this gun is that good.
