I don't know much about Model1 other than visiting their site a few times. The 6.5 is a sweetheart fired from the AR chassis and is very accurate even from a 16" barrel. That seems like a good price but the devil is in the details. The most important factor is the barrel. Who made it? How was it made (forged, button, etc.)? Is is deserving of the 6.5?The barrel quality would be my main concern. After all, building an accurate AR upper is not a difficult task. If you're gonna take the plunge into Grendel land, do it with an accurate barrel and you'll never regret the decision. It is a fun round and really slams coyotes hard.
