Muchas gracias for your opinions.
CMMG Bargain Bin rifle review is here.
I took a chance and recently bought one. I can say that I received a Doublestar. It looks brand new and for the price of $550, I feel that I got a good deal. I have not shot it yet but will be happy to post reviews after I do.
Currently it looks to be unfired. there is no carbon residue on the bolt, the finish looks to be new. There are no wear points on moving parts such as the bolt or carrier, and the gas tube area seems clear of carbon or scorching typical of fired AR's.
Hope this helps
