M1A reliability, power of the .308 with the length of an AR… what more could you ask for? Not a rare gun but you can bet youre not going to be seeing one of these everyday at the range. I really did overlook this gun for a long time but boy am I glad it finally caught my eye. I understand the tactical look isnt for everyone and to be honest its not my thing either. But this gun can serve a real purpose, the shorter barrel is a great feature as is the adjustability of the butt stock along with the M-Lok mounting system. As far as weight goes its not much lighter than the standard M1A so dont go into this one thinking youre saving alot of weight. The M-Lok rails are great and make mounting lights, lasers and optics much easier. The Archangel stock is of very high quality and the option to use your favorite AK grip and AR butt stock is a nice touch. Do yourself a favor and buy it!
