    Head Down Products AR

    Anyone try one of these. Both my LGS in North Atlanta are carrying them and speaking very highly of them. Course that doesn't really mean they're any good but....

    LGS price seems pretty high at about $1650.

    Never, ever heard of them before. Google is my friend, and here's what I found:

    http://www.headdownproducts.com/shop/rifles/xpr15sr.cfm

    Looks like a $700-800 consumer AR from what I see. This is all else that I found:

    It appears they make some somewhat higher end models. Still not seeing anything that grabs me.

    $1650 you are in BCM, Daniel Defense and Noveske Basic territory.

    Very familiar and well charted territory to boot.

    I believe 1600 bucks will net you a LMT MRP if you want something special. Otherwise 1600 will get you any number of higher end ARs from the known quality companies like BCM, Colt, Daniel Defense and LMT.

    I bought a DD M4v3 and a Colt 6920 for considerably less than that. I don't see anything about their rifles that justifies the cost.

    Only reason I can think of to get one (and it's not a very good reason) is if you're a big Gun Dudes podcast follower and you want to spring for one of their custom billet lowers through them.

    If you were to decide that the head down rifle is the right choice for you. Use the link through the GunDudes's you'll save $100. Me?...I'll stick with BCM and DD.

    Those comments pretty much sum up what I was thinking, wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.

    They call that their own upper receiver? That's just a DPMS.

    Actually, it looks like a Sun Devil.

    Hell, I was looking at a DD M4V3 for $1200 with sights two days ago.

    I picked up my M4v3 at Clyde Armory for $1129 plus tax.

    I got a LWRCi M6 for $1450 last year and at least it was something different. I would pass on that AR.

    I saw two of those HD AR's get sold at I think $1650. I was kind of thinking I wasn't sure that was such a good deal.

    The barrel is a 1/9 twist, and is not chrome lined? And they want $1600??

    Um, no.

    I'd call it a pretty poor deal, when you can buy a NIB Colt 6920 for under $1200 right now, or a used 6520 for $900.

    Sooooo.......

    What about the billet receiver sets? Any reason a guy couldn't do a top-tier style build out of 'em?

    Before you ask, yes, I'm balls deep into a FDE billet receiver set from them.
