    Has anyone purchase a AR-15 from Spike Company in Florida? If so, what do you think about it? Any likes or dislikes? Would you recommend it?

    Why gamble? Buy a Daniel's Defense or Bravo Company USA AR-15. There's not enough price difference between a questionable unknown quality rifle from Spike's and a top quality rifle from BCM or DD to sweat whether you're getting a good rifle or not.
     

  3. Do you really want to support a company that flat out LIES to their customers?

    Election night when Obunghole got elected prices of stripped lowers doubled, when questioned about it the response was "our suppliers prices went up", bovine fecal matter. Now if they would have said, "we are trying to take advantage of the potential to make money during the frenzied buying period that is sure to happen with the election of a Democrap" I could have gotten behind that and the capitalism involved. But lieing saying that their materials went up ... nahhh I just dont buy that.

    Want a quality rifle made here in GA? LOook into Head Down Products rifles, billet uppers and lowers, either black or Dark Earth, MagPul furniture, uppers cut specifically for the MagPul BAD lever. Quality piece of kit right there.

    Spikes makes a solid mid-tier product. They are not the best or the worst, but are solid.

    C'mon, 99% of AR stores prices shot up, some LONG before election day

    They are an innovative company with some cool ideas and products, i havent heard anything bad about their AR's.
     
  7. yall are free to support whomever you choose to support, I will no longer spend my money with Spikes for the reason I stated.

    Honestly it's a free market and they can charge whatever they want. What ground me the wrong way was that they tried to play off their price increase trying to blame it on vendors. :roll:

    Had they been honest and just said that due to the perceived increase in demand we are going to increase our prices I wouldn't have a problem with them.
