The Lounge>Off Season Lets Talk Guns, Part 2
HonestChieffan 11:58 AM 01-23-2011
Been a while since we had a guns n' ammo discussion.


Some of you are AR shooters Im sure. Im looking at a Colt 6920. Will be my first AR. Picked up a Glock this fall and really enjoy shooting it. Any feedback on that weapon?



Anyone else been in a buy/sell/trade mood with hardware?

Im pretty sure that after WW2 they wanted to share common ammunition capabilities with allied countries which is why they switched to the 762 Nato (308win) when they designed the M14

Private Pyle also said "762 millimeter full metal jacket."

Dont get me wrong, Id keep a mini 14 if I had one, but I wouldn't buy it over other options.
That's my thinking. And if there is ever a real SHTF scenario, you're FAR more likely to find a trashed AR laying around that you can salvage parts from - trigger spring, etc.

Gotta question for the AR aficionados here at the Planet. I've got an opportunity to buy a new in the box DPMS Oracle in 308 from a buddy for $550. Good deal? Cheapest I've found so far are in the $750 range. Pros and cons for this particular AR? I realize it's a very basic entry level AR 10. I don't have a particular use for it outside of some target shooting. Myself I think it's not a bad deal and my buddy could use the bucks. Thanks in advance for any info you can pass along!

AR10? Yeah, that's a good deal. Especially considering the current political climate.

Jump on that deal, seriously. Also, be prepared to dig a little deep for a scope for that thing.

When I joined the Army - the M14 was the standard rifle - in 7.62. I really don't know when it was switched (the caliber) but through Basic, AIT and Viet Nam - until we transitioned to the M16 it was definitely a 7.62 round.

Yes it's a GREAT deal! My AR-10 is a DPMS rifle. I don't really care for the AR-15 5.56 DPMS (I own a Colt) but the AR-10 is an absolute tack driver. Great Rifle that "usually" goes in the neighborhood of $900 and up. There is NOTHING wrong with this rifle.

That, or you can wait for the PA-10 308s that Palmetto State Armory sells to come back in stock.

For $700, SS free-float barrel with flattop, Magpul stock, and molded grip. (Optics, rail, and M&P Shield not included.)

That's a beaut, Clark...I have to say that I'm thinking of buying/building a second AR for myself now.

Thanks guys. Much appreciated for the info. Texted buddy little bit ago and let him know I'll swing by with the cash :-) It looks like it will be a hoot to shoot.
