While there are a lot of AR-15 pattern rifles on the market, the Radian Weapons Model 1 stands apart. This is for a number of reasons…
Everything on the rifle is, for lack of a better word, polished. Attention was paid to all the little details. No take down pins are stuck and require force, the selector moves smoothly and distinctly, it is overall very well made.
A lot of the rifles magic is in the lower receiver. The A-DAC (Ambidextrous Dual Action Catch) allows for full ambidextrous use. But more to the point, you can lock the bolt to the rear by depressing the magazine release (on the right side) and running the charging handle. This for me is an amazing feature and cuts down on time when clearing malfunctions.
The rifle is also accurate. While it comes with a claim of Sub M.O.A. (Minute Of Angle), I was able to verify that, doing my part with good ammo, getting groups down to .85″ and .8″.
If you are looking for a really amazing rifle, and your budget will allow it, take a hard look at the Model 1 by Radian Weapons.
