    Why not? The price is right.

    Great price and my favorite is the A2...just a very practical all-around rifle.

    I have one that I bought way back in the 80's...been shot a TON and it is still my favorite AR.

    I think it really needs the triangle.

    I keep telling myself that my Mini 14 is shorter, lighter, easier to clean, and not as muzzle heavy. I donít even like ARs much.

    But...that price. And my history with it. Itís been a long time since Somalia.

    Then all the nimrods on the Left saying I donít need one. Well, I donít. But I wouldnít mind thumbing my nose at them...

    I kind of prefer my Mini, too...just easier handling for me. But, it is not as accurate as the A2.

    The nimrods is the only reason I have one. I've never had a hankerin' for an AR. Never shot one until I was 57, and it was "meh".

    My first one with the open flash suppressor would fire one round on full auto if you wanted it to. Not realizing that I'd never find another one like that, I turned it in when I went on R&R.

    I doubt I'd get one though. After seeing the AR's on the ground in the photo of the shooting at San Bernardino I bought the last AR in a lgs. It was made by Colt Competition Rifle using the Colt name and came with a 3 shot 100 yard target measuring .383 with heavy Sierra Match King bullets. One is enough for me, though I wouldn't mind having a lighter one.

    I have a Rock River 20" A3 standard rifle that they have offered for a long time:

    PSA AR 15 A2 Classic-rra-20-inch-std-rifle.jpg

    In the accuracy department, it is only surpassed by my NM A3 and the 20" Bull Barrel. One of the best things about the 20" barrel is that it makes the 5.56 perform the way it originally did.

    PSA AR 15 A2 Classic-rra-20-inch-nm-ar15-a4.jpg

    This is the National Match. I used one in competition for one season before building one from the ground up with a lot of competition stuff. The RRA was competitive enough to use at Camp Perry in Service Rifle matches.

    I bet you'd really like that PSA model - and as you say, their prices are darn-near impossible to pass up.

    @Rob99VMI04 is right about the price and tax issue. It is quite a bit cheaper to buy the kit and add a stripped lower.

    10thMTN you do realize if you buy the kit you don't have to pay the FAET tax which is an additional 10% on completed guns.

    the Kit is only $349.https://palmettostatearmory.com/psa-...rifle-kit.html just add a lower.

    The Firearms and Ammunition Excise Tax (FAET) is a federal tax on the manufacture, importation, production, and sale of firearms and ammunition, including shells and cartridges. Pistols and revolvers are subject to a 10 percent FAET on the sales price, while rifles, shotguns, and ammunition carry an 11 percent tax. This is separate from any state sales taxes on guns or ammunition.

    Beat me to it! PSA's items that I put into my build were all excellent without a single problem. If you're looking for a trip down memory lane that A2 20 in looks to be it!
