    First Impression

    Posted by Samuel Berbach on Oct 29th 2022

    Honestly my first impression on this AR is outstanding. The quality of this firearm right of the box are unmatched. I was under the impression this was an “entry level” AR and I was prepared to start swapping parts. Honestly besides the pistol grip and selector switch and maybe the charging handle this firearm is a 10/10. Even though I haven’t cycled any tours through it yet, I have full confidence it will preform to the same quality of the build. I’m great full for Faxon to of made this AR pistol and to sale it at an extremely reasonable price point. I would highly recommend this firearm and any firearm made by Faxon!

    10.5 ascent

    Posted by Mike Legerski on Jan 27th 2022

    Fore end is solid, good magazine, grip is a little uncomfortable and the brace is a little loose, but It's a brace not a stock so it's what I expected. Price was reasonable in this market especially, Haven't shot it yet so won't know full eval till then.

    An amazing AR for such little money!

    Fired this for the first time today. Had a UH-1 Holographic I put on it. Right out of the box, super tight bullseye grouping at 30 yards. No adjustments needed to the sight. Super accurate barrel. This is a must have! If you are thinking of buying this, don’t think, just do it!!
