Looking for an AR that's next level, and easily sets itself apart from the run of the mill entry level rifles? Check out the Defender from LMT. This is a direct impingement rifle with a monolithic upper - meaning that the M-Lock hand guard and upper are machined from a single piece. Barrel can be removed from the upper in seconds by loosening two screws. The advantage here is that you don't have to choose between having multiple optics for other uppers, or switching an optic from one upper to another. This rifle oozes quality. Comes with one 30 round magazine.
