Of late I have been thinking about getting something along the lines of an AR-15. I don't know one from another. It would be my intent to get a Low end Flat top. It doesn't need to be a tack driver but I do require reliable.

Just for shooting paper, cans , bottles and other ammo wasting functions.


suggestions?

How good is your eyesight? Is it bad to where you'd want a scope or are iron sights fine? For shooting cups and cans you just need a standard AR-15 carbine or full size. For shooting target groups you'd want something with a floated handgaurd, match barrel, more of a varmit AR-15.

Go with a flat top upper.....It will allow you more versatilty for adding options such as sights or optics. I own 3 ARs. It is like owning a hotrod rifle. The upgrades and custom add-ons are endless.

Eyes are not what they were 40 years ago when I shot Navy expert with an M1 on my first try. That is to say first try with an M1. Certainly not my first time shooting. No I'm into optical stuff for long guns now infact I'm going to get some special shooting glasses for pistol work anymore.

I gotta ask, what is CRS?

Pretty much, its a not so rare disease that causes women to be pissed at you all the time for forgetting stuff, birthdays, anniverseries, meeting for lunch, picking up the now ex-g/f from the airport, you know the usual.

Get an M-4gery, ala Bushmaster or DPMS. Those are economical and very reliable. Should be able to find one at a local gun show for $650-$800 range.

The big problem with me picking up one at a local gun show is there isn't any local gun shows.

Mil-spec parts, the company name dont matter unless we are talking about barrels, and even then it dont really matter. So get mil-spec

5.56mm chamber, if it says 223 or 223 Wydel then avoid it. It wont reliably cycle mil-spec ammo, there is a chamber differance.

Chrome lined, Im going to say that if you ever really intend on abusing your rifle, or belive it will spend time in wet enviroments then get the chrome lineing, if not then dont sweat it.

Dont get any sort of optic untill you can use the irons like it was second nature.

M4 generaly means that the barrel is 14.5in(meaning that the flash hider must be NON removable), That it has larger feed ramp cuts in the barrel extention and reciver, that the barrel has a profile to allow an M203 grenade launcher to attach, and the extending stock is larger and better fitting then the original CAR stock. The feed ramp cuts and the stock are the only opperational improvments. You can get these improvments on pretty much any AR15 you would like.

Im also going to sugjest that you build the gun yourself from a compleat parts kit. You will need to only buy the lower reciver from an FFL the rest can ship to your door. If you do this correct you can build an AR15 for less then 600 bucks. Not only will you get a better price but you will know exactly how it works, and be able to fix it if the need arises.

For just plinking? Maybe an AR-180B? Seems to a be a nice rifle with one big detraction, and that is not to have all the weight of the upper receiver on the front hinge pin, or risk tearing out the hinge pin.

Owners swear by it, but some complain about the hinge pin thing, but others say to just be careful about it.



It has a new rail adaptor.

The slings are EL Chepo, from wally world. One the first gun I put HK style clips on the ends, the ends were set up to take them already pretty much. I originaly had it like you see in the pick one end of the sling had a HK clip and the other side had a fastex that attached by the clip.

The way the sling is now with clips on both ends, I can clip one to the rear sling plate and the other to a forward ring on the freefloat. I can clip both to the rear sling plate and have a single point, I like it.

If you are looking for a good premade sling the blackhawk dieter sling is the shizzle, it has HK clips on both ends but also has bungi in it so that you can still muzzle thrust and have more mobility while still holding secure. Anymore I just use that sling you saw threaded through the MOLLE on my plate carrier, it holds it around the neck so that I can use either hand . I hate anything that dosent allow you to shoot left or right handed.
