Torture tested this IWI pistol out of the box by running 3 mags of old steel tula 223 in an unlubed gun and the gun was flawless and very accurate. I have no doubt that this gun would be a tack driver in the right hands with the right optic, ammo, and technique. IWI has really cornered the sub $1k AR market in terms of quality and value. On top of the quality furniture and tight tolerances we all want in an AR, it has excellent recoil and handling during rapid fire situations due to the mid length gassing.
I ordered this gun from K-var on a monday night and I picked it up from the FFL on that friday. Does not get much better than that. Your results may vary but now is a good time to buy compared to last year or even 8 months ago.
