    I don't know what handguard that is but the price seems quite high to me.

    Sounds like a lot for a SBR with lots of unknowns....

    None of those accessories look "custom made" to me.....

    The optic is shit, as is the VFG (looks Tapco'ish), the handuards look like YHM parts (decent, but heavy) and the flash hider almost looks like a vortex (decent). Factory stock, and handgrip. He doesn't mention who's LPK, nor what trigger he is running.

    That's not even the biggest problem, and I'm suprised no one else hasn't mentioned it yet....

    That upper is much shorter than 16", meaning it needs to be on a registered SBR lower, or a pistol lower. Obviously the lower isn't a pistol one, and since nothing was mentioned about NFA forms.... I'm guessing this combination wouldn't fly in front the ATF.

    I'd pass......

    the VFG and optics are utter garbage, and that rail looks like YHM, which arent very much. $1200 is definately too much $$

    Just having the name American Spirit Arms stamped on the lower depreciates it's value by 800 bucks, they are the worst AR manufacturer in the country along the same lines as Hesse. Yea I know I know Bob is dead and they are under new ownership, who gives a fuck, the name itself stamped on the receiver will make sure it never sells for full value, too many people know of ASA

    I wonder if it's actually a registered SBR :bowrofl:. Probably not. Plus he's been shooting wolf through it. Sounds like an AR noob, I'd avoid it.
