I'll keep this as concise as possible. Looking at buying a Nordic NC-15 WYLDE (UPC 816696020082) for around $639. However, info, reviews, or videos on Nordic in general is very limited - not 1 major Youtube channel has reviewed Nordic. Practically nothing on the NC-15 at all. No reliability/durability testing, whether it can eat steel cased, and all the other standard review topics. Also, there are very few retailers, and I have yet to find even 1 review for the gun. Even on gun.deal (formerly slick guns) no one has touched the rating or comment section and people LOVE to give their opinions on there. This is disconcerting to me as I'll read 30 articles, 50 pages of forums, and watch 10 hours of video reviews for a product. The stark lack has scared me away in the past. That said, on this forum, I see good reviews of Nordic hardware and I have read some pretty good reviews of the Nordic PCCs or .22. My use for this would be home defense, general plinking, SHTF. Nordic NC-15 is listed as $639 (though on a few websites I have seen it at over $1,600. What the heck? Price gouging or is $639 just a fantastic deal?). Other rifles I'm considering: M&P 15 Sport 2 ($519 for MOE model), Springfield Saint ($730). The NC-15 has what seems to be upgrades that similarly priced ARs don't: - Large Midwest Industries M-LOK handguard (similar to ~$200 Gen 3 MI; has 1 nut at the base vs 2 and a slight design difference.) - Magpul grip/buttstock (lower end models, but many rifles in the $600-$700 range only have the standard hand guard, grip, and stock) - 9310 for the bolt (not carrier?) vs 158 carpenter - MPI bolt (don't think the carrier) - Forged lower (not billet) - the barrel (if the same as sold separately) appears to have great reviews, even in the competition world. Theoretically should be far above a standard 4140 M&P Sport barrel or the Saint. - Upgraded flash hider (around $90 at Cheaper Than Dirt) vs. birdcage Am I missing something? Is Nordic's marketing team just missing the ball? I came to this forum because when searching "Nordic" this was the site that had the most hits for that search. Thanks in advance for the help!! NOTE TO NORDIC: If your quality will stand up to criticism and want to increase sales, give Nuttin' Fancy, Military Arms Channel, and IV8888 a rifle to test and get your name out there. The sheer lack of reviews will prevent most people from ever buying any Nordic rifle.
Question for everyone as I am a solely a pistol shooter, but looking to buy the B14 HMR http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2017/07/daniel-zimmerman/bergara-b14-hmr-hunting-match-rifle-in-6-5-creedmoor-gun-review/ TL:DR Reading the guys review of the rifle I'm missing something when he says the gun shot a 2.5MOA at 250yds, but then goes on to say 10MOA at 500 yards. Fully understand, I have literally no idea what i'm talking about, but my primitive research on MOA tells me 2.5MOA at 250 = 1MOA at 100 yds. So then at 500yds it should be 5MOA right? How can the gun go from a 2.5in group at 250 yards to a 10in group at 500 yards? He gives the gun 5 stars for accuracy but In my mind a 10 in group at 500 yards is pretty horrible
