First look is it is a really sharp looking AR-15 type platform. ( I thought it was going to be a handgun). 1:8 rifling and a "improved trigger". Light, at 6 lbs. 11 oz. MSRP $899.00. I really don't need another AR, but if I did....

Street price should probably stabilize between$700.00-$750.00.

Well, I was wrong... I was expecting it to be a subcompact pistol - something to compete with the P938, PM9, or even LCP.

should be $600. The filipino-made stuff has very nice fit and finish, with all the goodies, except no checkering or stippling. but nice triggers with stops, big fixed sights (front one in a dovetail) ambi safety, beveled mag well, enlarged ejection port, ramped barrel, ducktail grip safety with memory grooves. You can find them used for $500 at ffl's, $400 from private parties.

yeah, the $600 was for the "us-made" claim. :-) The RIA stuff is well made and well fitted, finish is ok, too. $400, out the door, is a helluva good price if you get all the bells and whistles.

Centerfire Systems has the "Saint" in stock, $849.00. My experience with Springfield pistol's has been very positive; I'm going to follow the reviews on this AR closely.

Got one in the shop last week, very nice and the best trigger I've seen for right out of the box. All in all one of the best entry level AR's right now for the money.
