    Talking Assault rifle survey

    are there any assault rifle owners in here?? Im getting myself an early present and i just wanted some opinions- Here is what i have narrowed my 2 choices down to-

    The LWRCI REPR- 7.62 or The Barrett REC7 6.8

    just curious if anyone has any pro's or cons or comparisons on the 2- yes the REPR is about $750-$1000 more and that isnt a problem- just wondering what anyone thought

    this gun will be used for fun, outdoor range shooting 100-200 yards out- maybe some hunting and hopefully i wont have to open it up for any BG's in the house, LOL nevermind got the MOSSBERG for that one -

    Lemme know what you think

    Nope...but a lot of us own fully legal semi auto sporting versions of military pedigree rifles...Me I have a HK-91 Clone and a bull barrel bolt action Class "f" Target rifle that is good to 1,000 M.

    An assault rifle is a hand held shoulder fired automatic and semi automatic select fire weapon capable of firing more than one round when selected to perform as such.

    A fully legal semi automatic rifle will only fire 1 round per trigger pull. It will have many of the same visual styling features of an assault weapon but brother...IT IS NOT AN ASSAULT WEAPON!!!

    I'd go for the 6.8 SPC. I'd say a .308 if the ammo weren't so heavy to pack around. I prefer more firepower than a .223 for hunting or personal defense. The 6.8 SPC has excellent ballistics and great terminal performance on deer and feral hogs. It's even been used to take elk. It's easy to reload for since it takes a .277 bullet (the same as a .270 rifle). Another good thing about it is that the ammo is much closer to the weight of .223 than to .308.

    Uh, yeah. We, of all people, need to be especially careful in our terminology. Using "assault rifle" or "automatic handgun", both commonly used by the media, when neither term is correct plays right into the hands of the enemy (those who would deny our 2A RKBA).

    For the record, a Bushmaster AR-15.

    Neither of the rifles listed are assault rifles. An assault rifle is a selective fire weapon, by DoD definition. So if you can get them from a Class 3 Dealer and pay the transfer fee more power to you.

    That aside, my experience with the two companies is that they are both fantastic. The difference in the cartridges is that the 6.8 was a originally conceived as a mid-range, up to 500 meters, battle rifle cartridge to replace the 5.56 NATO that was not doing so well in the opinion of many of our soldiers. The 7.62 NATO (308 Winchester) was developed as a battle cartridge as a replacement for the wonderful 30/06. As a cartridge designed for engagement of targets at ranges from muzzle to 800 meters is has shown on the battle field, target ranges, and the game fields to be a very efficient and accurate cartridge.

    The 7.62 will have more felt recoil than the 6.8 considering that they are usually found on different sized platforms. Pick your range desires and go by that. The two rifles will both give good service and the manufacturers will stand behind them.

    In the house either one will go through several walls unless frangible ammunition is used.

    jessepeak.com,

    inasmuch as an ASSAULT RIFLE is a MACHINE RIFLE (in a Main Battle Rifle caliber), i'd be stunned if we had more than 2-3 people who own one of those. today such a weapon is probably 15-20 THOUSAND DOLLARS.

    there might be a member or two with a full-auto FN- FAL, G-3 or M-14 but i doubt any more than that.

    yours, TN46

    I have an AR-15 and an AK-47. I frown on the use of the term "assault rifle" because of the negative connotation used by the media. Any rifle can be an assault rifle if used that way and an AR-15 or AK-47 could be a hunting rifle if used that way. I use mine simply as plinking and target shooting rifles.
