Thinking of a new .223 or .308 rifle...
So here in the next few months I'm hoping to ad a couple of rifles to my battery. One will be a bolt action for long range work, but I also want some sort of battle rifle or carbine. I've been hashing it over in my head and just can't seem to narrow it down. So, here are the options that I've come up with; let's see what you guys have for ideas…
Springfield Armory M1A, either a standard or Scout model: I've owned a couple in the past and already set up with magazines and gear.
M1 Garand Tanker in .308: I'm also set up with clips and gear. The downside is no scope mounting.
DPMS AP4 in .308: I really like the configuration and easily changeable sight systems but would need to buy magazines.
AR180 or AR180B: I've owned one in the past and really like them. I have lots of M16 magazines that can easily be adapted for the AR180 (regular M16 mags work on the AR180B) and even a few that are already to go. Also kept a few accessories and like the dovetail scope rail system quite a lot.
AR15: I'm very well set up and could either buy one new complete of just an upper for Bushmaster DCM. I'm planning on buying a new upper with 24" heavy barrel anyway.
Let not the rifles of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots.
