    Extremely easy to deal with. They were quick courteous and prompt with shipping..The rifle shoots factory ammo about 1 MOA. I’m sure the reloads will easily go sub MOA.

    Just received the rifle from FFL today. All of the gun shop’s staff were thoroughly impressed with the fit/finish/build quality. The burnt bronze color with the nitride bolt carrier and the enhanced muzzle brake make a loud statement on their own. It’s a gorgeous rifle.

    Chris and his wife were absolute gems to work with, very straight forward and honest on what was going on during build and testing, who the carrier would be, and when the rifle would be shipped out. Everything they said was absolutely spot on correct. The rifle was enclosed in a nice, padded plastic hard case for its journey to the FFL. The gun shop staff was impressed with that, too.

    It’s monsoon season around here, so it’s going to be a while before I can put the rifle through its paces on the range. I can’t wait to see if it shoots as good as it looks and as great as the customer service Chris and his wife gave.

    I live in California and everybody knows what is like here now. Gun owners are not sure what is coming next, but we do know that the Bullet Button is banned as of 12-31-16 which means a fixed magazine. Everybody is buying what they need as quickly as possible. This leads me to my purchase from Live Free, I email and spoke to Lori, She is knowledgeable and professional. I could have bought from anyone but once I spoke to here and she answered my questions I decided to purchase from her. I bought the Tungsten 16″ 308 and could not be more pleased. Shoots goods, cycles good, and looks good. I have 2 other ARs that are quite a bit more price wise, but the Live Free Rifle is a Great rifle for a Great price. I have recommended them to all by shooting friends and I intend to purchase another one from Live Free before end of year.
    My only regret is that I did not purchase the Elfman drop in trigger when I ordered , but I ordered one and installed it.

    Just picked up my AR 10 16 inch tactical from my local dealer. When I got the text it was in he said he was keeping it and he would order me another one. The packaging the hard case it came in is top notch. If it shoots as good as it looks then WOW. Can’t wait to shoot it.I will post a video on my YouTube channel when I get to the range. I will do a tabe top on it tonight. True Patriot 09. Thank you Live Free Armory for a fine American made product. GOD bless our military and first reaponders.

    Bought this rig back in March and used it to take a big feral hog.Took a nice buck with it this deer season in northern Michigan.Dropped him in his tracks,just like the hog.

    Just got my rifle in the mail yesterday and absolutely love it! There was a problem with one of their machines at the armory which pushed the wait time to almost 2 months, at first I was upset but they were very honest with me, and upgraded my receiver to a billet upper and lower, which made the wait all worth it. Props to a company for turning out a product the right way at a good price instead of pushing them out the door with no regards to the rifles build quality. The fit and finish is perfect on they rifle. I got the OD green cerakote and it looks perfect. I mounted a Leupold 1-4x scope on it and it makes for a suprisingly slim and relatively light rifle. My only complaint is the charging handle seems a little cheap. But now I’m just nitpicking. Can’t say enough good things about this gun. Thank you live free armory!!

    Bought rifle back in Oct. mounted a SWAF 12X fixed scope. To date have run over 100 rd. thru and not one problem have only used 149 gr. federal ammo. The two stage trigger was well worth the money. I’m not the best shot but a 2 MOA @ 100yd is no problem. Of course there was no problems with service. The rifle arrived within a week, even when using a money order. Already have people asking to buy it.

    This is an update on my live free 308 1 year later. I have over 1200 rds through it. Not one failiure , changed out barrel to 18″ it is moa rifle I have shot out to 800 yards ringing steel. Great rifle great company and great people. For the price you can do a few upgrades and be under $1500 every biit as good as my Aero Precision and my Ruger
    Currently looking for 6.5 Creedmore to convert and of the 3 the Live free gets the nod for the upgrade.
    Thanks Again

    Got one of these a year ago and haven’t had any problems. Its a great rifle! Fun to shoot. All my friends like it so much they try to buy it off of me. Nope! Buy your own! I’m considering getting one of their ar15s because they are super light and this company makes quality rifles.
