I inherited a Mossberg lever-action .22 squirrel rifle from my granddad years ago. Aside from that, I'm a .45 caliber handgun freak without a lot of rifle knowledge.
So..... I tend to be a large-caliber fan in most things, so I guess a rifle is no exception. Therefore, I think .30 caliber or above is best suited for me, like 30-06, .308, 30-30, and above.
I guess my questions are:
Is it true that an AR-15 (.223) is more accurate than the AK-47 and SKS 7.62mm family? I read this somewhere, and it had something to do with certain part of the action moving vs. not moving.
I have a small tendency to jump on the "mean" military-looking rifle idea because of the potential coming "assault" weapons ban, but I'm undecided. Would a plain old bolt-action 30-06 suit me better?
If the scare subsides (hopefully) and Dianne Frankenstein doesn't get her way, what's a good quality non-Colt AR-15 maker? I know that the actual Colts are hard to come by these days.
Lastly, does anyone make an AR variant in 7.62mm?
