This has become my go to AR. The factory trigger was not as good as the ultramatch, and it is extremely heavy. The groups make up for it though. At 100 yards this is the most accurate rifle I've ever fired period. This includes high end bolt actions and other AR's. It should come with a sling swivel up front. This would aid in shooting it as well as toting it. Mine with a 6.5-20 power scope and a full 30 rd clip weighs in at over 15 lbs. All things aside, this is one amazing rifle. - C. A.
