As an owner of an AR5 and an AR5s, yes I love Ripleys, my AR5s has a John Reg fitted and has proved excellent. Have not had issues with it for 2 years now, goes through the BFTA chrono within 10fps of what I expect (set mine for 770fps). John replaces the seals with ones that work over a greater temperature range so cold and hot does not affect it.
My AR5s is a matt black one and can do well if I do things properly. Going to save for a GC adjustable stock to purchase for the 14/15 Winter season to get use to it.
