Traditional vs. New

I'm sure everyone has noticed the recent demand for AR-15 style rifles. But I'm more of an old skool traditonal wood stock rifle type. What are the advantages and disadvantages of both? Let me here ur opinions.

trad vs new

well as far as ar's go they are great if you got plenty of money but i prefer either rifles i build my self like a 95 mauser action with a barrel from brownells with my own wood in 6.5 x 55 swede or my sks everyone knocks sks's but they came before the AK same round little heavier but mine is pretty accurate so i guess i play with older stuff because anyone can spend lots o cash but not everyone can build a custom rifle

wood vs. synthetic

I like the looks of a nice wood stock also. the synthetic is good for bad weather conditions and it is lighter. I got one of my favorite rifles in synthetic (M1A Scout), but a garand is also one of my fav's. One thing I hate is when people take a perfectly good classic battle rifle and try to turn it in to an assult rifle by changing the stock and mags etc...

Agreed

If someone put a Synthetic stock on an M1 Carbine like mine(I don't even know if there is such a thing)they just ruined it!
