    Great weapon . I qualified on the BAR when I was in the Army. #1 draw back was mag capacity.

    It ain't as purdy as an original, but if someone was to offer me one I would not turn it down.

    I think they did that to try to keep trigger jockies from burning up so many barrels..... we only got 20 rounders in SEA as well. Made you actually pay attention to your rounds instead of just burning through a mag. :)

    And I like the original M1918 better then the new one. :p

    Seems to me 20's were SOP when I was in the Service. I was fortunate to fire and become familiar with a lot of the WWII and Korean War firearms. Besides, that was all we had in the late 50's early 60's.
    Garand, Carbine, 1918, M1911, M1919, M40, M20, M3A1. Never got to fire a mortar.

    Somebody is going to bring it up, so I might as well be the first. Why pay out that kind of money when there are so many variations of the AR-10? Is it really that much better with the 30-06 round?

    I just looked at the site, and that is one pricey beast! By the way, they should make an 18" barrel for it, too. 16" is Just too short for a .30-06.

    • BAR's are cool.
    • Yes, the 30-06 is ballistically awesome.

    :)

    There are a few AR's in 30-06 out there but I don't know anything about them. They're probably just as expensive.

    Love the idea of a light weight saw. I still get back pains from lugging mine around in the desert.

    Adjustable AR-style stocks have a place on some weapons, but anymore they are more of an affectation than they are a practical accessory.

    I think its more they are just dirt fricken cheap is the biggest reason they are being over used.

    It was nice to be able to adjust the LOP on my AR. It's the only rifle I have which can do that. Every other long arm, I just have to grin and bear it if the LOP isn't where I'd want.

    Because everyone's arms and shoulders are exactly the same length?

    I still believe that the best looking rifle is the M-1 Carbine.

    Light, versatile, has a hard hitting (pistol) cartridge, and wood furniture that is very appealing to My eye.

    Just wish they could be produced with a mid-range cartridge like a .243.

    I agree, adjustable is nice. But slapping a $9 craptacular milspec one on a $3000 rifle is just cheezy. Theres plenty of real nice looking adjustable stocks. Cutting corners and slapping garbage on it, ruins it.

    Its like slapping 4 basic steel wheels on a Ferrari.

    No. It's because they sell weapons with pinned and non-adjustable ones for states where collapsible stocks are considered evil accessories, sometimes, meaning that they are periodically added for a tacticool look, rather than for their practical benefits.

    This one looks fully adjustable to me.

    Given the price tag, I'd be shocked if it weren't.
