Only from your post. Seems like they have put together a line of parts guns and have re-branded many mfg's parts by adding their own ceramic coating on it. I can't find a price anywhere and the online store doesn't have any products in it. The drop-down list of brands seems odd - Apple, Canon, Hewlett-Packard :D They must have just rolled out their site and it's not quite done yet, although the flash animations for the rifles are nicely done :thumbsup:

It's what they choose to talk about and what they don't that speaks volumes.

If you read their descriptions, there's a ton of fluff in there.

Anyone that uses hydraulic buffers and CAA furniture, in my opinion, doesn't know the first thing about building a rifle. I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole.

I was thinking the same thing. There's a REALLY odd mix of high-end and low-end parts on that rifle on the main page.

Also, its really unprofessional to publish a site that's so far from being complete, without at least indicating somewhere that its not complete.

In the online store- the "brands" drop-down still has the default options from whatever other site the code was ripped from. Lame.

I'm pretty new to the ar15 rifles. Is having a hydraulic buffers really that bad? I've heard some stuff about it but i would think that type of buffer would really reduce the kick of the rifle. I personally use the spikes st-t2 buffer.
I don't know any differences between different brands or different weight of buffers because, well this is my first ar.
I've seen some stuff of CAA brand I personally don't like them because it looks some what cheap.

A hydraulic buffer is a very expensive solution to a nonexistent problem. They don't do anything at all except trick people into spending more money on their rifles in the form of accessories rather than ammo and maintenance.

To some people, CAA furniture looks really cool, so they use it. In my experience it's very cheaply made from inferior materials. It's flimsy and will fail under stress. Also, the stocks are all commercial so people will end up using cheap and failure-prone commercial receiver extensions.

The only exception is their pistol grip. I mean, it's a pistol grip. I prefer the Ergo's, but the CAA one actually isn't all that bad.
