i want to, but it just seems so wrong
that, and i have like 1000 rounds of 223 laying around
Just buy a .223 bolt action.
to your mother
What kind of .223 is it, and how much do you want for it?
Most ARs group just as well as a bolt action rifle at 100 yards, I hope you are not doing it for accuracy reasons.
I am against selling firearms. Period. What will inevitably happen is...you will sell your AR, get your bolt rifle, then kick yourself in the taint for selling your AR, and you will want it back, or another one. My advice, just save your money for a few months and buy the bolt rifle and add it to the family. I sold a Glock 19 once. I feel like a dickhead for doing it, even though I still have 13 firearms.
Keep the AR and save for the bolt action...it's what I'm doing.
ar's suck. sell it and get a bolt action.
yes i am biased, and do not like the ar/m16 platform
What do you like?
not ar's, thats for sure. ak's over ar's, i just really hate the platform. and yes, ive owned one... which was promptly sold.
got any pics of the ar?
i just want to see what he has, no harm in that.
i`de keep it
search google for one of the billions of ar pics... im sure he has one of those.
What's not to like about the AR platform? Great accuracy, modular design, infinite aftermarket accessories. I mean, you can't store it in a mud puddle, but it is an incredibly good rifle.
its personal preference. i dont like the way they shoot.
yeah, maybe it was just the one i had... but it jammed every 3rd round and i couldnt even fire a mag all the way through without having to clear a jam. also felt like a toy to me. it was a 20" dpms with 6 pos mil spec stock. i think i posted a picture of it a long time ago. it had the carry handle too, which i didnt like.
Sounds like the one you had was a lemon. I don't like the fixed sights/carry handle either. I opted for the picatinny rail on the top and flip up front and rear sights.
If you're willing to give ARs another chance, see if any of your buddies have some ARs in different manufacturers and shoot them to see if you like them any better. I had the chance to shoot a CMMG before buying one, and I loved it.
If not, a FAL was going to be my other choice for a semi-auto rifle.
i would have been willing back when ammo was cheap, but not now. ammo is too expensive. rather shoot .308 for the price. lasts longer too.
I hear that.
No offense, but that thing does not represent the many, many quality AR15s out there.
DPMS: First possible problem.
Cheap ammo: Possible second.
Cheap Magazines: Most likely.
What kind of jams did you have?
