I recently traded into a Spikes AR pistol and this weekend got it out for the first time. I've had plenty of practice with the carbine variety but this size intrigued me. Even after reading up on them in the various boards I didn't know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. Aiming from a stand with a cheek weld on the tube resulted in the target below @ 25 yards. Offhand it was easily minute-of-milk-jug accurate. When I shoot water filled milk jugs with a pistol they move a bit and just leak. When the .223 hits them they explode and jump high in the air. Being a lefty I have to hold high. A waist hold causes brass to hit my right arm. An SBR would be better but till the feds loosen the rules I'll just enjoy this. I only ran about a hundred rounds with no issues and it really wasn't dirty when I was done. Now I have to remove the staked rear nut and mount a sling plate.
