[quote]Thanks for the response bapple, I ended up getting it after reading some reviews and got it for $575 OTD. Should be in next week.[/quote] Definitely show some pics and give us your take on it when you get it. I have a friend who's interested and I haven't even handled one :cheers:...

re: Need a ruling on a S&W AR-15. - bapple
The sport model is one of the best values out there. My buddy has run his Sport model in 2 carbine classes, shooting near 2000 rounds. 100% reliability on both trips, plus the second trip was all steel-cased ammo. The forward assist and dust cover aren't that necessary although I personally like ...

re: Digging into the ATF's M855 Proposal & Why It's Wrong - bapple
Yea, if I'm looking for real accuracy I'll just load up some higher quality stuff. I was just curious if it would be available ever. It's pretty interesting to think of the consequences of that hard steel tip though. Solid points....

Has any of the M855A1 come to the civilian market yet? I would think the longer boat tail and longer bullet would aid in accuracy. And I'm liking the writeup. Hopefully this shite sandwich gets thrown away....

[quote]One of the only people to criticise guns on TV.[/quote] This is one of the big reasons I don't like reading American Rifleman for gun reviews. They NEVER say anything bad.

re: Get Ready For AR-15 Ammo Ban! - bapple
Then how does military surplus ammo work? If M855 is banned and not available in stores for civilian purchase, I don't see how that wouldn't drive up the cost of everything. You know the point I'm trying to make. I know you know more than 250% of people on this Earth but you know what I'm saying....

[quote]Also, one type of 5.56 is being banned. [/quote] But it will effectively drive up the price of all .223/5.56 across the board, no matter the type. I'm not one to throw on my tinfoil hat. But go to [link=(http://savem855.com)]Savem855.com[/link] and email your representatives and the AT...

[quote]Then we'll shoot M855A1. LC is already producing more of it than M855 anyway. [/quote] You're proving my point. The civilian market will be flooded with the leftovers and if they banned it, the price in 5.56 would change considerably across the board....

[quote]LongueCarabine[/quote] :cheerS: What makes this even more fishy is that the military is slowly adopting open-tip match ammo and the new M855A1, which is all-copper and still has a penetrator in it. So what are they going to do with all that left over green tip? -----> military "surpl...

I don't mind the NRA trying to get money. But I definitely agree the constant fear-mongering and phone calls get irritating. But I guess if that's what it takes to combat it all, then so be it....

[quote] instead many would prefer to show you their power and authority by taking your weapon and tearing it down. [/quote] This is certainly plausible. I like to think it's that the cop is a gun guy/girl and wants to check out the piece. In either case I think it makes more sense to leave it ...
