    Great build kit and you get some nice parts. Good luck finding a build kit for this price anywhere else. Will be picking up another one soon.

  3. Kim Sackmann

    Parts as advertised. Excellent shipping & handling, arrived ahead of schedule. Customer Service was fast and professional. Such a good experience, that my husband ordered a similar build kit. ‘AR-15 Premium’. Nice family business. Sweet prices.

    I have purchased two of these kits. I am very happy with my purchase. Each kit came with every part I needed to assemble and use the firearm. You just need a lower receiver ready for it.

    I have put about 500 rounds through one of them and around 200 through the other(both came w/ a .223 wylde chamber).

    There have been no issues so far with any of the parts. They are running smooth and working well.

    shipping was fast and there was no delays.

  10. Kyel Lamb

    Just finished building the black Friday kit, went together just as it should I have put about 400 rounds through it and not a single problem, after this build I purchased another and now I have 2 great firearms. Thanks Durkin for the great quality products that you are offering

  11. Jason

    Nice kit, everything was easy to assemble and shoots great!!

  12. Jim

    First time builder (but not my last). Kit was easy to assemble. No issues with parts fitting and going together. Would have liked to have lower picatinny rail included but was an easy purchase to make.

  13. Ryan Butler

    My first AR build, went together without any issue. Looks great, great fit & finish. The order process was smooth and no surprises. Shipping was faster than promised or expected. Looking forward to some time at the range, but ordering the same kit again for a second build in the mean time. One more happy customer.

  14. Jonathan

    Top quality parts…I can’t see how spending more on “better” stuff would actually be any better. Very fast shipping too. I will definitely order from Durkin again.

    Durkin Tactical mailed my order super fast. Ordered the kit on Wed night…delivered Monday. I plan to work on my build this weekend and the parts all appear to be quality mil spec components. The barrel was upgraded to Stainless Steel on my order. Very excited to put this AR together. Thanks Durkin!!!

  16. Matt

    I would have given this 5 stars except I had some trouble with the pins during assembly. It seemed like they might have been a bit too large. I would like to mention that this was my first time putting one together, though. Other than some trouble with the pins, I am extremely happy with the final product. I’ve put about 100 rounds through it so far, and it has worked like a charm. No issues or jams at all. After sighting it in, I’ve been able to obtain good groupings at 200 yards without any problems. I will most likely purchase my next kit from Durkin Tactical when the time comes!

  17. John

    Very nice kit would buy again
