    Get both. Honest, if you can afford it get one for scope, and keep one iron - there are going to be times that you want a lighter weight rifle. Aperture sights are a lot more accurate than you probably think. You might like it in it's natural state.

    ymmv, but I know I just built my second ar for that reason - first was too heavy with that huge scope and bull barrel to carry aground - but it is a hell of a lot of fun on the bench.

    *update*

    Well, I fixed my little problem, S&W MP15, Tactical Entry stock, 16” bull barrel, flattop upper, I added a Bushnell scope that adjusts from 3x to 12X, surefire and a “super tacti-cool” quick release forward grip just for kicks, it’s growing on me, it’s rather a comfy and natural feel. This should make for a good all around AR-15 for me, varmint, home defense and SHTF. I think I might go with a smaller tactical red dot optics later, this scope is a little big.

    Nice rifle!

    I still have 5 more days until I can pick up my S&W M&P15 carbine, I cannot wait! I specifically wanted one with a removable carry handle, and the M&P15 just stood out at my FFL dealer.

    How's the weight of the bull barrel feel on the front end? I don't remember ACE stocks being very heavy, so balance would concern me a little. If you don't care for humping it around with the weight more towards the front end, you could save up for a Magpul UBR or a whole new barrel.

    the balance is fine, it is not a very heavy bull barrel, with the forward grip and a full mag things work good, the naked gun unloaded is 6lbs

    Then by all means enjoy it! Some folks (read: me) aren't real fond of bull barrels, but if it works for you it works for you.

    Ah. Here is a brief visual description of the different AR15 barrel profiles. "Bull" barrels (the thickest of the bunch) are the cheapest to make because they require less machining, which is why they're so commonly found on 16" and 20" barrels. They tend to be heavier and swing the center of gravity further out towards the muzzle than the lighter and more common gov't profile barrels.
