Help me pick an AR-15 PLEASE
There sure are MANY changes and options since I bought a COLT AR back in the 70's. Sold it when the ban came out for LOTS of $$.
Now I'm, looking to get one, just in case things go bad and the ban comes back. I've been looking around at AR15.com, Model1 trying to get educated and decide what I want. I'll be using this for HD in dire circumstances and maybe for a bit of Tac 3 gun, but no serious competition or long range stuff. I'd like a carbine, 5.56, plan on using a red dot scope. SO what is the best platform, A2 with carry handle & scope mount, A3 with removable handle, or flat top and flip up front & rear sights ? Please give me the benefit of your experience here to help me decide.
Well THANKS to all for their input. After reading, reviewing, handling, comparing and generally going a bit crazy trying to decide WHICH one to get or put together, I made the plunge and bought a CMMG, M4, 5.56 flat top with flip up rear sight. Here it is below. It should be here, It will be here soon, I hope.
