One of my buddies and I went with one of his buddies to go buy an AR today. This kid was all excited about getting this RRA rifle. We get to the store, and talk to the idiots at the counter. The rifle is a plain old M4 style, without the grenade launcher mount. I knew the guy was really excited about it, but they had much better rifles at the store, and he could have built an even better one for less money if he wanted to. I really didn't want to rain on his parade, so I tried nudging him towards a better solution, but he had his heart set on this one. I mean, the rifle he bought isn't a bad rifle, but he could have done way better for the money. At least I talked him into buying a Troy folding rear for $90 vs. the overpriced stuff they had at the store. I would love to have helped him build a rifle, get a lower locally and build it with stuff from the internet and then slap a BCM upper on it.
