Howdy,  My name is Chad Smith.   I'm a Corporal with the Baylor University Police Department in Waco, Texas.  I am a TCOLE Firearms Instructor, an AR-15 armorer, and a Glock armorer, and I act as such for our agency.  

Generally speaking, even aside from work, I'm a gun nut, as it just happens to be something I enjoy immensely.  Suffice to say when I'm behind a trigger I'm happy.

 Recently, I and several members of my department had the pleasure of attending a day long AR-15/Pistol course at Tiger Valley with TJ Pilling and John Tillman as instructors.  An oversight left us one rifle short, and John Tillman loaned me his S.W.A.T. Firearms M4.  What was this S.W.A.T rifle? Frankly, I'd never heard of S.W.A.T. firearms, even though you're right down the road from me.  Although I'm not entirely certain which model this rifle was, in perusing your website it seemed most similarly configured to what you call the Desert Storm rifle, though his was solid black if my memory serves me correctly.   I do know this, I took immediate note of the billet milled upper and lower receiver and the free floated full length handguard.  The rifle just felt of pure quality from the moment I laid hands upon her.

From that moment forward, the love affair blossomed.  After a brief sight zeroing, I instantly realized the tack driving capabilities of this bad girl.   John had his rifle equipped with an Aimpoint PRO. The result of the zero easily yielded sub 1" groups at the 50 yard zeroing distance, with no magnified optic advantage.  I can only dream of what could be accomplished with a quality magnified optic.

The rest of the day we were shooting primarily steel, so accuracy was judged mostly by hit or no hit. We shot ranges from 100 yds to 400 yds, and the rifle performed flawlessly all day. I estimate I sent roughly 600 rounds flying that day. All day long, great accuracy, great reliability. I used a combination of PMAGS and USGI steel mags. I experienced 0 malfunctions.

I'm not a professional firearms reviewer. I just know what I like, and I know what works, and this rifle was a shooter for sure.   I'd put it up against rifles with double the MSRP.
Fit, Finish, Accuracy & Reliability.

It's the total package, and the fact that it says Made In Texas on the receiver means I'll have one in my safe in the not so distant future. Anyway Thank you guys for building a quality instrument and keep up the good work.
Professionally,
-Cpl. C. Smith

"I fired approximately 25 rounds through it to see if it would jam or hate a certain type of ammo.  So far, it will fire anything from 55 gr to 62 green tip without a misfire.  I love it and the trigger, just what is needed in the platform...
