The guys at The Firearms Blog reviewed a rifle I've never seen before, but it's a neat concept. Something tells me Bolus either already has one, has it on his wish list, or will by the time he sees this... It's the ARES SCR Gen 2 - I guess the Gen 1 kinda sucked - no bolt hold open, gritty crap trigger, and no iron sights from the factory. The gist though - is that the guys at ARES figured out how to make a sporter stock AR-15 action, so folks in less free states can get their mitts on a decent non neutered semi auto defensive rifle. Probably still not legal in Cali though. You can drop any AR-15 upper in it, but it requires the use of their proprietary bolt - as they lopped the bubblegum end off, fitted it with a rat tail, and the recoil spring rides in the stock and angles down. An extended charging handle looks like it's almost necessary if you run a standard scope on the gun, but that's pretty much just like any AR-15 too. 5.5lb gun from the factory will appeal to the light weight lovers - since getting a 5.5lb AR can be quite an endeavor, or at least an expensive one. Looks like it takes P-mags or standard metal AR mags. 2-3 MOA with Wolff ammo in the video above, from a sandbag rest. Not bad. It's an EBR for the guys who can't get or don't care for typical AR type EBR's. It would look killer though with a nice walnut or laminate stock set.
