    1st review

    This is a great starter AR-tpe rifle. I have 2 and they are what I used to teach my sons about AR's They lack a metal-lined fore-grip, which I picked up at a gun show for $20, and the carrying handle is non-detachable, so M-4 type optical sights are out. All in all a great little rifle, not really up to snuff for a patrol rifle, but it would do. Olympic makes a nice quality product, even in this lower end rifle.

    I picked mine up, brand new, a couple of years ago for about $625. While I have added many toys to it and changed out the fixed stock for a 6 position collapseable stock, grips, iron sights, selector switch, added a red/green dot 40mm sight, and the like. I find the Plinker Plus very reliable. I have used and abused this rifle through several training/instructor courses, high rate of fire, and high volume fire; this rifle takes a licking and keeps on ticking.

    I have and use a .22 conversion kit on a regular basis (due to the cost of .223/5.56 ammo), and find that close and mid range is still spot on target with both iron sights and the red/green dot sight system I use with it.

    The only issue that I have ever had with this rifle is when I utilized WOLF AMMO (yea... I know... crappy ammo and dirty, dirty, dirty! ! ! But hey, its CHEAP! ! !). The Wolf Ammo shell casings would "melt" in the chamber and stick and need to be "extracted" manually with steel rod and hammer. Took the rifle to my gunsmith and he polished the chamber. Now that heavy barrel chews through everything I run through it! ! !

    I would put my Olympic Arms Plinker Plus against any off the rack AR on the market! ! !
