    Bison Armory is going to start making rifles in the standard 223/5.56 AR chambering. Previously they made them in 6.8 SPC and .308/7.62 calibers.

    I have a 6.8 upper from them. Looking at getting a 2nd 6.8 from them, maybe a compete gun.

    The 223 looks to be a nice rifle. :wavey:

    Now for the "over priced" "too new" "I stick with...." comments to follow :rofl:

    Don't see anything on there to make it seem worth $1500 to me.

    Bison does make one heck of a 6.8 barrel!

    Looks like a nice setup, these days that price is not bad at all. Time will tell if these are quality rifles.

    I'm definitely not one to bash, based solely on name brand and Internet heresay.

    However, the fact is that there are MANY quality AR builders already on the market, with proven track records, who offer products at reasonable prices.

    When a new builder bursts on the scene with prices rivaling the likes of BCM, Colt, Daniels Defense, LaRue, Noveske, etc... I would highly recommend tapping the brakes.

    That's how I feel, as well. Except for availability, BCM offers a 16" upper with a SS410 barrel, the same Troy rail, and 1/8 twist for around $760. That leaves over $700 left to add in a BCG and charging handle, and build a good lower - plenty of budget to do so, and you're getting a known quantity from BCM in the process.
