    I understand the philosophy, but if I wanted to sell it, as is, I can say it is in good working order and get top dollar for it. If I shoot it and break it, and it's unrepairable because it's no longer supported by anyone, what can I get for it? Who's gonna buy a gun that doesn't work and can't be fixed?

    I am planning to keep it and shoot it, if I can determine that if it should break, I can get it repaired such that it won't depreciate it's value significantly.

    If I find I can't get it repaired if it should break then it goes into the collector's category and I'd probably sell it.

    I remember when those came out 10-12 years ago. I kinda wish I bought one back then, they are near and fun to shoot.

    Ummm...sort of, this is all I saw. Of course the receiver may be the same while the stock and forend are different. Also, notice none of the catalog models have a full length rail.

    Oh, and BTW, speaking of recoil, that thingy on the front of the barrel really works - it's actually a compensator. I was at the range with it a long time ago and the compensator was loose, so I removed it to see what it shot like. The recoil was surprising. It wasn't what you'd call heavy, but it was a lot stouter than a standard AR, by far in fact. I put the compensator back on and it really tamed it down.
    true, but if I was buying an used weapon from a private seller, I would want to shoot it first. When was the last time you shot it?

    Well, yeah, if you could shoot it before. It's kind of rare that one gets to shoot a gun before he buys it. I don't get to shoot used guns in a gunshop before I buy them. I don't get to shoot guns I buy of the internet before I buy them.

    It's been a while since I shot it.

    You're supposed to pause and breath at the three periods as you read the words.

    Only one thing to do....paint them pink and put Hello Kitty stickers all over it,ATF would never find it since they would be focused on black guns

    i agree, I'm just a little more cautious with private sellers and used guns, versus a used gun from a LGS. I didn't get to shoot the last used I bought, but it was from LGS.

    Tangle, when was the last time you shot an AR?
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    OT, stopped in my LGS tonight, never seen it so busy, ammo shelf was bare on most common calibers, ammo line still long, no ARs in stock, and plenty of people shopping for guns.

    Evil looking, might break, no parts or support available (maybe)....

    Reminds me why I have a ranch model Mini-14 instead of an AR-anything. Looks like something Tommy Lee Jones would carry in a pickup truck gun rack, will run with sand poured in the breech, 35 years of single manufacturer support....

    ARs have their strengths, they just don't suit me.
