      The answer you seek is obvious: Bushmaster M17s

      I was outbid on one the other day that went for a little over $500. The trigger isn't great, but they're a pretty reliable setup and are very cheap...

      I'm in the camp of, "I'll never use it. Ever. But, for some strange reason that I can't explain without feeling like a poser, I refuse to own an AR without one unless it's a 9mm Colt or an A1 Colt".

      I've crunched the numbers 20 times, and economically speaking, the most cost effective way to get a quality AR is to buy the following parts/assemblies:

      When I posted above about using a PSA CHF M4 upper as the basis for your "build", I wasn't suggesting anything that involves any proprietary tools or knowledge. If you want to do literally no...

      Damn. Was it really $160? It's showing as $189. Either way, still a good deal, but $160 would be a smoking deal. The barrel alone (with a pinned FSB) is almost worth that).

      AK parts are not more prevalent. There are a few more aftermarket parts available than there were 5 years ago, but they're not particularly desirable from a collectors standpoint, and they often add...

      The blanket statement about Century is a misnomer - not all of their products are bad. I will say, though, that a lot of their products are a calculated gamble. When you buy Century, you pay about...

      As much as I love AK's, right now is just about the best time in the history of the country to buy an AR-15. Seriously. You can get a complete rifle with a melonite barrel for just a hair over...

      Didn't the PSAK's have headspace issues that were significant enough to PSA that they pulled them from their website? I'm sure PSA will get them right eventually - and it will likely be the first US...

      I hate to be "that AK snob guy", but the correct answer is the most foreign rifle you can find, placing a particular emphasis on getting a CHF CL barrel and an original receiver.

      I thought about it, as I've wanted a 228 to go with the rest of my Sigs, but the frame rail condition is too much of a question mark for me to gamble on. The other reality is that with the amount of...

      I saw an ad for these on Slickguns, and it reminded me of my air-cannon/potato-gun days. I assume this is blank-fired?
