My preference is HK-91... What is yours?
Agreed for semi-autos. I like the Ishapore 2A1 for a 7.62NATO bolt gun.
My hk 91.
The HK91/G3 have never felt right to me. That does not make them a bad gun, just not one for me. I do like the MP-5 and HK93 though.
I do like the FAL as well they are a great gun and feel good. I had one for a long time but I needed some $$$ and I sold it to sticking to just my M1A.
I am going with the M1A here too,
True enough. They are one of the most awkwardly balanced, front heavy battle rifles ever built.
I really like how they shoot but I really need to try other rifles to compare...nevertheless you guys sure have some nice rifles!
Well, I haven't bought one yet, but I think the next expensive firearm I buy will be a semi-auto .308. Right now I am considering the following--
LMT L129A1: It's similar to an SR-25 but made by LMT and costs half as much. The British bought it as their new DMR. A real SR-25 would be nice, but that's a bit more than I'm willing to spend. A downside is this rifle is somewhat heavy.
LaRue PredatAR: Just came out, a new lightweight .308 from LaRue. Less than 8lbs! Very interested in this one.
Colt 901: Also just came out. It's Colt so you know it will be awesome. Has a nifty receiver design that lets you put any normal 5.56 upper on the lower as well as the .308 upper.
FN SCAR-H: Just to be different, cuz no one else has one. A downside is it takes expensive proprietary magazines. :/ Also less than 8lbs though, and I love things to be lightweight!
Build it myself from the ground-up with MEGA billet receivers. Could be fun.
Nice... What's the SR-25 like besides costing more?
Well... it has that totally rad KAC logo on it! :laugh:
Actually there are a few differences. Most noticeably, the LMT has their MWS quick-change barrel system. This could be useful to some people but not really to me. The SR-25 is about 1.5lbs lighter than the LMT due to this. KAC is also a god-tier AR manufacturer and their attention to detail and quality control is second to none. Not saying LMT isn't good, it's just that it's kind of hard to compare to KAC unless your name is John Noveske or something. With so many top quality .308 rifles available for around the $2.5k mark that can get sub-moa groups out there now, it's kind of hard to justify spending the $5k on a KAC though.
...or $8500 for the "mk 11" branded version
...or $23000 for the actual XM110 package that comes with the scope, silencer, and all that jazz. I mean really COME ON, who's gonna pay that much. <_<
AIAW 308 26"
10 handrolled at 100M. The top left hole was the CBS. (cold bore shot)
Depends on purpose really.
If you're talking about SHTF and need something to turn cover into concealment, I'll go with this one:
If you're talking about wanting to hit something long range, then it's this one:
Come on Fred, you know my Armalite SASS is the only real one............. Did that pitting get worse on the HK?
I love mine.. my favorite by far and I have either owned or shot virtually everything. Guess it's subjective
I love all of mine.
Just picked up a DPMS AP4. Just have had time to run through 20 rounds and haven't got it broken in. Recoil very manageable and the accuracy is settling down nicely. Factory iron sights and the last 5 rounds bulls eyed at 100 yards. Hoping to get it dialed in this weekend.
Have to agree on the HK91, kinda like holding a 2x4 with a pistol grip to me
Here are mine, M14, FAL, M1A Socom16
