The AR-15 will be more accurate, but the AK *might* be a little more reliable.

It's good stuff. They provide a lot of good info in their DVD's. They do others for pistol, and shotgun. It's not a substitute for training, but you'll learn a lot.

Yeah, I read that. Though it seems to be pretty reliable as long as you clean it regularly.

Failure to fire, and failure to eject are things that are just going to happen from time to time, nothing really to be concerned about.

clean it anytime you use it. especially if you use cheap ammo they tend to leave more behind. keep it oiled too to help prevent rust and so theres no friction.

Let's see here...

Current Collection:

That SW990 & Beretta Carbine are gone. Still have the Savage .270 & the Ruger 10-22.




SW990 was replaced with a Springfield Armory XD-40








The Cx4 was replaced with a Winchester 870

Called about it today. It's a Bushmaster mx 15-e2s
http://www.galleryofguns.com/genie/D...&zipcode=24563
(if it's not that exact one it's similar, they have a few E2S's, though $1,100 is the cheapest one.

It has the Bayonet Lug, Flash Suppressor, Handle sight, upgraded guard, etc. The tag read $750 but he said $725 on the phone, Used but mint..I know it's a good deal but do you guys think it would be a good gun?

bushmasters is a good brand, nice thing about ar's is that they are modular... so what ever you don't like about yours, a million companies makes parts for them to mix and match what you need/want.

That's a good price. Personally I prefer flat top weaver rail AR's to the carrying handle. The advantage of the handle is that it's always there and is nearly impossible to break, but if you mount an optic on it, you can get into height over bore issues at close range. It also makes it more bulky. It comes down to personal preference though. Dose the upgraded hand guard have the weaver rail on it? You can always put one on it, but it's nice to get right out of the box.

My ideal configuration is a flat top with a rail, folding backup iron sights with a red dot optic. If your optic fails, you can always fold up your back up sights and "shoot through the tube". Overall though, what you're looking at is a good rifle.

The hand guard didn't have any rail on it though it's not the traditional one. It has holes thorough it where you can see the barrel, I will post pics this weekend. BTW, that's the same scope/sight set-up I'm planning on.

If you can find a flat top like this:



It gives you much better versatility. Rails on the hand guard are really nice, but not really necessary if this is a target/hobby rifle. If you like the way the carrying handle looks on it, you can buy them to attach on the top rail so you can always take it off. Rails on the hand guard are really nice for mounting flashlights, forearm grips, and other accessories. If this is a home defense type of rifle for you, it would be a really good idea to mount a flashlight. Forearm grips look cool, but unless you are running heavy optics, and accessories, they just hurt accuracy because it changes the way your body absorbs recoil. You're much better off wrapping your hand around the hand guard.

When you get your hands on the rifle, make sure the butt stock has full freedom of movement, and when it locks into position it's sturdy. A little bit of wiggle is okay, but just make sure it's solid. Don't settle for cheap parts, because if you get into the unfortunate position of having to defend yourself or family, you don't want parts to fail.

Yea that is the perfect setup for an optic, such as an aimpoint. A rear flip-up sight is always nice too.

Carrying handles are retarded.

Yeah, I bought mine about 15 years ago with the handle, so I bought a cheek piece so I could use my scope.
