I bought this from BudsGunShop a few years ago for the same price. I like it. (it came with 2 steel mags)

you need to buy either:
Steel sights (polymer front site will melt)
scope of some kind (red dot, holographic)

also, the front rail is a little lower than the rest of the gun. so you need to add something so it lines it up w/the rear site. (ignore if going with  scope.)

edit:
if I had to do over again, I would have bought the A2 version for the same price (but only 1 steel mag).
the A2 version come with a front site so all you need is a rear site.
pop-up rear site + scope = cheap co-witness

How does this compare to an AR-15?

  It is an AR-15 format.

Dust cover and forward assist, but no chrome barrel.  Gas impingement.

chrome-moly steel doesn't mean chrome lined?

chrome-moly is not chrome lined.  Is it better or worse?  You decide.
