On 07 MAY 2014, I received a sample from SWAT Firearms in Campbell, Texas. The model was the SF-15 and I believe it is the most basic configuration they offer. It had a flat top receiver, railed gas block, collapsible stock...pretty standard in today's AR world. 

 The biggest change it had was the billet upper and lower. Though it may not be required, since standard forged receivers do just fine, this was a different approach and helped to set the SWAT rifle apart from other typical AR offerings.

This particular rifle was sent to me after meeting with SWAT Firearms and the intent was to use it as a range gun. I warned the owners of that I was difficult to impress, especially when “everyone and their brother” makes AR rifles these days. They were very polite, understanding, and informative, but they assured me that I would not be disappointed if I tried out their wares.

I inspected the rifle as soon as it arrived at our range. The only thing that seemed out of sorts for me was the movement of the safety lever when the bolt carrier was locked to the rear. There was a little stiffness when engaging the safety, but this did not occur when the bolt carrier was forward and it worked as advertised in that capacity. Overall, the rifle appeared to be well constructed and due to the billet upper/lower, it looked like it would survive anything I could throw at it.

Fast-forward to today, a little over two months later, the SF-15 has been rented out about 165 times and has easily hit the 8,000 round mark. There have been zero serious issues in that time, and we have only had to replace the extractor, extractor spring, ejector, ejector spring, three gas rings, hammer spring and firing pin. Some of the parts were replaced due to wear, others were done just as a matter of convenience (the extractor, ejector, firing pin). At first, one might think that is a lot of parts replacement, but as most people would assume, rental guns take a beating in a very short time. 8,000 rounds in ten weeks is more than any individual shooter would normally put their rifle through, and I know this rifle is hungry for more. The SF-15 was only cleaned once a week and inspected each time for parts wear, that's approximately one cleaning per 800 rounds. To be honest, the rifle did go one week without a cleaning, and that was my fault, but it made it through and kept our rental customers happy.

I can fully recommend SWAT firearms due to the construction, customer service and the lifetime, transferable warranty. You would be hard-pressed to find a better deal for the money.

"I got to go to the range this weekend, and thought I'd share my experience like you asked.  I bought an "Ar series" Bushnell optic, 3-9x40 scope.  I had it sighted at bass pro at 25 yards, at the range I put 50 rounds through my rifle at 100 yards. The rifle cycled flawlessly, and shot like a dream.
