I've always wanted an AR-15 carbine. I have had a Colt Hbar for 15 years and, now, I've finally got this one. "Thank you Obama. You and Bill have really driven me to build up a nice collection!"

Eturnit, LOL!

No disrespect to Rounder or your mom. It's not a bad carbine. Not one of the best, but it has its uses. BTW, what does your mom use hers for anyway?

Rounder, nice AR. I've got a bushmaster and never had any problems at all. Some people just think you have to have a LMT or a colt to make it good. But, I love mine and never had any failure at all out of it.

I totally understand the Colt fanatics, although I don't agree with them. I have owned a Colt Hbar for over 15 years and saw the same rifle I own at the gunshow priced at $2500! That's BULLshit! I paid $1100 and change for it.

I got this great little shooter for $1199 plus tax. Didn't want weight, this time. I wanted a "toy gun" that would blow the socks off any asshole that called it one.

My Bushmaster 1 in 9 twist bll., has been "Faultless". I put an ACOG TA33, 3X orange post on it. It will put just about everything 55-68 grains within 2" at 100 yards. I dont use any Russian ammo though. Could I ask for better, YES, but don't want more weight. I really am a weight freak. I prefer to carry the ammo vs look at the purple stock.

charley 8 and a half

I agree. I love my Bushmaster too. And I like the light weight. If I was going out on the battlefield, maybe a more expensive weapon would be my choice, but for what I use it for, it's perfect. How do you like your acog by the way? I have a Eotech on mine and like it, but I see that alot of people prefer the acog.

My Bushmaster

had some issues at first, but it broke in and has had a shitload of rounds through it with no problems. There are always those gun snobs who think it has to be the latest German piston driven black gun to be any good. I have carried an M4 for years and had very few problems. Take care of the gun and it'll take care of you. I would rather have an M1A squad scout rifle for the power, range, accuracy, and reliability, but with as much ammo and magazines as I already have for the black rifle, it makes sense to hold what I got and i don't feel the least bit undergunned. Of course, the majority of the equation rests with the man(or, apparently, woman) behind the gun.

Catfish The ACOG

The ACOG gives me a bit more in range. How do I like it, IT'S Wonderful, I believe the ACOG is the best all around sight you can put on that platform (M-4). I am not pooh poohing the EOTech with a flip on, 3X glass though (which is more practical in the city). I only wish that I had the current optics available when I was a paticipant. I was the 1st in my neighborhood to get one. It convinced my son & two LE guys to buy one, mos tic.

ACOG is a great sight

for many uses. It is a good compromise as it is pretty effective for distance and it is pretty good for room clearing (with the both eyes open shooting), but is not great for any one thing. I have an EO Tech and an Aimpoint Comp M3 and the Aimpoint is a superior sight to the EO Tech in all ways but speed on target. it is more durable, has better battery life, and best of all, doesn't shut down automatically after a few hours to conserve its battery. I have not had a reason to send the Aimpoint back to the factory yet, but I have had to send the EO Tech back and I gotta say the customer service at L3 is terrible. They had two guys in the warranty repairs department and I swear those guys took more vacations than federal workers. ACOG is good if you're trying to stretch the range of the M4, but as I've put in an few earlier posts, I prefer entry work to the longarm stuff and even with no magnification, I have no problem putting rounds on a steel 3/4 man target rapidly past 250 meters.

Aimpoint comp M3

I put the Aimpoint on my Marlin 1894 (.44mag) this past hunting season. Yep it is quick, clear and effective for what its meant for. Longer ranges than my little carbine ,sure, but a 1st rate 100 yards woods sight.

Hello Nitris...

No, it's not a 6920, but a Bushmaster XM15. I have never fired an Oly, but have only heard good of them. I've got a buddy that has an Oly and a Bushmaster and he loves them both. He had a Colt SP1, but sold it.

quote Nitris..."give me any make AR if it doesn't run I'll make it run." unquote Nitris

I absolutely believe that to be true...any make, any model, any caliber. From what I've seen of your creations, yes, I believe you could do it.

...see ya back at the AKF...

Well, I bought a...

Colt LE6920 on Gunbroker and just received it. It's an awesome rifle, but you know what? As for aesthetics and feel, I think I like the Bushmaster better. I gave the Bushy to my son. What a Dad, huh?

We haven't shot either, yet, and I'll have a more accurate opinion of them after that.
