Id never shot an AR before until about a week ago I feel like a jerk.. like an Uber gun snob for not liking a rifle that is so expensive. Heres the story, A buddy of mine owes me $400 dollars and he has an Eagle arms M15 I think they call it. Well we tinkered with the idea that maybe he just give me the M15 and ill pay the difference to settle up. We went out shooting and here it goes: About the gun: The rifle is beautiful OD green furniture removable top handle Excellent condition. My opinion: Its all a matter of opinion why I dont like the gun its not like im slamming it because the bolt flew off and hit my cousins sisters aunts brother in the face or anything but to me the M15 or AR-15 variant felt like a toy.. When shooting it made a weird springy "shlack shlack " noise and the overall feel made me just sad.. I just thought it would be something more I feel so let down by the hype that I had built in my own head about the AR ... had to tell my buddy that ill have to pass on taking the gun.. Anyone else turned off by the AR-15? It makes me love my AK that much more... And I know now that I wont be buying an AR. In the future I will settle for 2-3 more AK variants. It was a fun range trip though.. Out in the desert where we shoot there is a freaking plague of these black and green grasshoppers that are about the size of a 12 gauge shell. I spent the rest of the trip shooting my friends NAA .22 mini revolver and slaying the grasshoppers until the powder and lead residue turned my hand black ..
