Hey Gang- I know absolutely nothing about the AR platform but my boss has asked me to research it for him since he seems to think I'm the office 'gun guy.' I'm proud of the moniker, but haven't a clue. Here's what he wants: an AR that he can hunt with, probably no more than 200 yards in heavily wooded Western Washington forests for elk and deer. I'm thinking 308 buy haven't any idea what's really available. Need input on barrel length, make, model. He's shot ARs back in his military days (20 years ago) so he sorta knows them. He was looking at the Colt LE901-16s due to its convertability, but a cursory search on the innerwebs made me flinch. He's fine with spending $1200 or so, since that's what the Colt goes for. Okay? Go!
