Re: AR 15 barrel length question?
I'm subscribing & hope this thread goes for awhile. My wife just bought her 1st AR and I'm hoping to get one soon. So far, I'm liking what gunhugger has to say.
Personally, I would 1st determine what the primary purpose of the AR will be. For us, it's home defense. We live in the country and may also be killing a few yotes. But, so far I think the 16" S&W 15 Sport is filling the ticket for our needs.
I've only shot it twice. But, can get 2" groups at 50yds & 4" groupings at 100yds just using the stock iron sites or a cheap Barska 1x RD sight. To me, this is plenty good for HD & killing varmints out here in the country.
Conversely, I have a cousin that's not happy if his groups aren't smaller than a quarter @ 100yds. (Me, I'm happy with combat accurate.)
