Extraordinary, not just ordinary
Wow. After taking the plunge on an AR-15 after my tax return, I believe I truly chose the right one for me. Out of the box the J.O.E. Carbine is perfect and truly does not need much more than irons to be considered "set up". In my case I added/swapped out the following accessories
ASR muzzle brake (Option from MW)
Emissary Development Handbrake
Aero Precision Breach
B5 SOPMOD Stock
Magpul MOE+ grip
Magpul enhanced trigger guard
Magpul Irons (I'll swap it out later I promise)
I took it to the local dynamic range with props last Saturday and all I can say is wow. Compared to my friend's custom AR-15 (PSA upper, Aero M4E1 stripped lower with whatever parts he put in there), this this shoots like a dream. Incredibly well milled machinery, A zones on every shot that I made count, and a surprisingly smooth trigger.
The ASR muzzle device was a great addition as well turning the carbine with no recoil into a rifle that has negative recoil. In addition to my ASR muzzle device, MilitiaWorks reached out to me via email to let me know they were testing my rifle and noticed that when shooting suppressed there was issues with carrier velocity and the standard spring. To rectify this issue for me, they installed a Sprinco Blue buffer spring and 5-coil extractor spring with no addition to price.
If anyone has watched reviews on this weapon they know that it is held in high standard as the customizable rifle. I would just like to also note that the J.O.E. Carbine is not just the default AR-15, it is a cost effective rifle with thoughtfully hand picked parts, incredible machining, and great customizability. After this AR-15 I don't suppose I will need another as this one is everything I could have asked for at an amazing price, but if I did, I would absolutely buy from MilitiaWorks again with their amazing product and customer service.
