They came out with one of the finest piston AR-15s on the market. Originally derided as too heavy, it turns out it isn't quite as heavy as people complained about. It was a brilliant concept, as their other designs have been.I'm still a little salty that they supported the 10 round mag limit back during the AWB days.
