    assault rifle- which brand to buy ??

    Gonna be getting a AR this next month, and am slightly overwhelmed by the selection and variety to choose from. Looks like DPMS or maybe Bushmaster is leading the pack right now.
    The Bushmaster M-4 type A-TACS in .223 with 16" barrel looks pretty sweet !!
    Any input would be appreciated !

    Assault Rifle? No No... Automatic Rifle

    I would never own an "Assault Rifle" for fear of the uncontrollable violence they are capable of.

    I've been looking at a Stag flat top upper to add to my Colt for optics. My Colt has the carry handle. The other manufacturer I'm considering is LMT (Lewis Machine and Tool co.). Have read good things... Smith and Wesson is the other choice for me. I'm partial to S&W... And for the disclaimer, I'm not an expert...

    Good luck and keep us posted.

    Peace...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    What are you planning on using it for? Based on that I might be able to offer a more precise suggestion. While no eggspurt I have owned a couple of AR's & have my own observations.

    In general I would suggest your check out Double Star. They are a relatively new company & as such their AR prices arent out of this world yet. I own one & am impressed enough with it that I will buy from them again!
    Never argue with an idiot. First they drag you down to their level then they beat you with experience!

    Sorry, you're right of course. My bad.
    Thanks for the input, I'll be sure to check them out.

    Home defense, shooting it mostly on the range. Double Star looks like a good gun.
    Not looking to go too spendy, going to probably get it mid august at a gun show near here.

  7. no such thing as an assault rifle. Rifles are incapable of assault.

    My 6 Bushmasters. I also own Colt, LWRC, and a Rock River Arms. All are nice, but for value, price, and the most gun for the money it's pretty hard to beat a Bushmaster. Bill T.

    I have a friend that owns a Bushmaster and he competes with it and swears by it. I'll have to look there for an upper also.

    I like #2 from the left.

    My Colt is a pre-ban A2 w/ carry handle. I'd like to get a flat top upper for now to mount optics and try that. I bought the Millett DMS-1 and played with the carry handle mount so far. I'd rather it be closer to the bore line. In the future I'll build a lower and use the flat top upper with the finished result from that experiment.

    Peace...
