Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

Hey westcliffe,
I think there are some web sites for your caliber AR? Not sure about the match barrels, but I wouldn't doubt you could find someone making them?Google it up, and you may be plesantly suprised?

Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

I have written to Lija and Shilen and neither was interested. Wilson has introduced the 7.62x40 which is basically a necked up 223 case shooting a 110gr 308 bullet with a true 308 barrel. They have it up to 20" without a threaded muzzle. It has the advantage of working with standard 223 uppers, lowers and magazines. 223 brass is readily available, which is not quite true for 7.62x39.

I did find Kies Firearms today 7.62x39 FAQs who sell an 18" barrel, but for me the muzzle brake is totally unnecessary and just makes weapon disassembly harder. I wrote to them and asked them if they could do a custom 20-24" hunting barrel without threaded muzzle and fluting. We shall see what we get back...

Otherwise I may have to sell my carbine and start over with a custom build.

Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

I thought everybody had at least 1, just like a 1911 Like any other thing, some people swear by a platform and others despise it. I don't care for Glocks. Never have, never will. I think of them as recycled soda bottles and toilet paper, even though there are many other composite guns out there that I might consider. As for the AR's, I have a 15 and a 10, but neither are used for home defense. That's the job of my Mossberg 500 with alternate slugs and 00 and my warthog 45acp. The AR's are just another rifle I might or might not take out when I go out shooting. The only one that is guaranteed to go out to my backyard range every time is a 22 pistol, being a Smith 22a, with a bull barrel and 2x4 grips (as my brother calls them). It just fit's my hand perfectly and after re-working the trigger assembly, is a very fast gun which I can shoot very well. Other than that, it's a piece of garbage that's made of old soda cans and spraypaint. I like STEEL guns!!

Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

Hey Tinman,
I shoot a Kimber crimson carry full size 45, but I MISS my Glock 23 that I sold right after I had my CCW revoked.... That's a long story, and I really did NOTHING wrong, Just politics. Anyway, I love my Kimber, but my Glock was a tack driver too. Also one of the most dependable semi's made? Good choice on the home defence weapon, except for the slugs? Not sure how your house is layed out, but my son's room is just left of the front door, and mine at the opposite rear corner, so no slugs for me...2x4's and drywall don't stop slugs worth a damn.

Yep!. That's the idea. It's just me and the wife, and with the ranges dealing with home defense, I'd prefer a slug over rifle bullets.
