We've all seen these threads. Everyone loves going to town on 'em. haha Anyhow, here's my specifics:
I'm looking for a rifle that I can do Gunsite's 223 Carbine course with. I do NOT want to spend the money for an AR-15 (again). I have owned an AR and really I just don't think my dissatisfaction with the platform warrants my spending that much on one.. again. My obvious alternative is an AK-47. That's my big choice right now. However, I know better then to settle without consulting you all. haha
I need a rifle that has a 20-30 round detachable magazine. Cost should be somewhere under $750 for the rifle itself - which can be used or new. Accuracy is a no-brainer. Should be of a size which wouldn't be too hard to maneuver around inside a house. Bells, whistles, red-dot sights, blah, are fine and dandy, but I'm looking for basic suggestions. The kicker? Not chambered in .223 / 5.56.
Any oddities out there I should look for or reliable options to the AR/AK choice??
