spikes tactical st-15

what's your opinion of a complete spikes rifle? it seems like a great gun for the price and has just about everything im looking for in a rifle. i hear great things about their lowers but havent had any experience with their uppers/complete rifles. i'm also open to suggestions on similar rifles at the 800 dollar price point. thanks for your help.


here's the rifle with all the specs. i'll probably skip the carry handle and upgrade to folding buis for 10 bucks more.

I would be curious also, looks like some good specs....

Some buddies of mine have used the Spikes lowers, they all have good praise of Spikes. Hope someone that has touched or owned one jumps in.

Spikes is good to go, that configuration has all the right specs for a reliable rifle.

Bottom line is, you like it, so buy the thing already!

I've got a spike's midlength upper, Nickel Boron BCG and Battle Trigger set and I love every component. Top notch stuff, I had my upper zero'd in 8 rounds at 50yds.

At the price it's being offered, just do it, you're not going to regret it.

do you think a hammer forged barrel would be worth the extra 150 bucks for the regular m4 instead of the le?

Since I do not use one, I cannot comment on it's worth. If it doesn't give you an increase in accuracy or an increase in barrel life, I wouldn't think it's worth it.

Hammer forging is what almost all big gun makers are using these days. It will prolong the life of you barrel and some say make it more accurate. Every barrel comes out consistent in performance less chance of problems. Is it worth it its up to you i bought one and have ones that arent. Spikes has some great quality products though dont hesitate to buy from them.

You will be happy with Spike's. They make quality equipment and you just can't beat them for the price.
