I have been looking at buying this AR from Shamrock Sentinel for almost 2 years. I have been to multiple gun shows all over Michigan, talking to them, their past customers, and the customers I saw buying guns from them.
I never once met anyone, at any of the shows that was buying one "cold". Everyone I met that was buying one, was buying one because of positive word of mouth, and/or hands on experiance with one of Shamrocks AR's.
The reason that this company caught my interest is that they do not just slap together part. All the internals are machined to match. I could have bought an AR from Gander, or any other local gun shop. Then bought an optic, then a rail set up, then a foregrip, and so on.
They offered a COMPLETE package. The rifle, a scope, the rails, my choice of a foregrip, or bipod, a soft case, 30 rounds and a Magpul magazine.
SOme may scoff at the brand name of the extras on the gun becasue they are UTG. I personally have no problem with them. The parts are solid, well built and in no way do they look or feel "cheap".
I'm satified with my gun thus far. My first trip to the range will obviously tell me muchmore. But after disassembling and inspecting it throughly, it's a great gun, from a workmanship standpoint.
I work with several gun owners, one who is a retired Army recruiter that worked primarily with soldiers that were already in the Army, and recruiting them for Ranger school, and other S.O. branches of the Army. He checked it out, gave it an extensive once over and said he feels it is a very solid weapon, and that I should be very satified with my purchase, as long as it functions well.
Once I've fired it, I will be able to update my review more.
There will come a day when you can no longer do this, today is not that day.
