Reader Comments of the Week

“I’m shocked that I identified an write-up on this weapon! And to see it in an write-up referred to as the “the very best rifle you have under no circumstances heard of” genuinely does not surprise me. I try to remember owning a single of the 1st BEAR Elite rifles many years back when it had a non-reciprocating side charging manage. It wasn’t an problem However, but there was a quite smaller fracture exactly where that charging manage was and was the ONLY explanation I traded it out. I see that they no longer consist of them in their rifles which is a superior notion. So simply because of that alter, I have to agree that the BEAR Elite is the very best acquire you can make as a decision for an AR. Totally free float barrel, piston operated and light (which is amazing simply because most piston operated rifles are a bit on the heavy side). The very best aspect is the value. Superior write-up.”
