Look at Rock River. I have a 16" elite M4 with quad rail, can quickly chage from leupold 3-9 or Eotech. There fit and finish is excellent, no gaps or rattles. Excellent 2 stage trigger. If I were getting a third AR I would get the 20" varmint model. Rock River is all I'll buy from now on.

My firsh AR was a Bushmaster varminter. 24" barrel and shoots 1/2 moa or smaller all day. Although I would prefer something lighter and shorter to carry.

If you happen to be buget minded grab a shoot gun news. You can save about half on the cost. I've put together (can't really call it..."build") a number of them and they all shoot great. Seems the last one i put together cost me about $550. I "built" it for hog hunting and it's chambered in 7.62X39. I got the 20" barrel to milk the most out of the cartiage. It shoots! I "built" it for the wife and she can keep most inside 3/4"...I guess you guys call that .75?

The mags are hard to come by, but I did get some that work perfectly!

It's worth a look...ammo is still pretty cheap too!

Hey stx,
I know some guys who went out today, but not got a report yet. During periods of calm weather they have been doing very well. Another buddy went on the La Pesca over the weekend and it was pretty rough. They had only 4 YFT, they fished the same rigs we do up here...Boomvang.

Here is a pic of the AR-7.62X39 that I made for the wife and the AK in the fore ground is my short range hog:



BTW-I also built the AK...I doubt I have much over 1K in the pair as they sit!
