I made the mistake of going to a local shop that just opened up and talked to a salesperson who is talking me into trying some rifle competition. Not that I have any time or money to do it... I'm still considering it lol! Question for you experts out there is about the rifle... I'd like to get an AR that would work well w/ mounting optics for varmit hunting but I need Iron sights for the High power stuff. Do you know if it is "legal" to use sights that mount on the picitinney mounts for the high power stuff? would I be nutz to use a 20 or 24" heavy barrel for this competion? would I be nutz to use a 20" standard barrel for shooting dogs off bipods? as always, short of cash so I'd like to see if I can get one rifle to do two jobs. If needbe, I'd consider getting a different upper later... Also, opinions on Stag arms please? I'm torn between ordering a stag arms gun, or getting a lower unit from the shop (off brand) and getting the DCM, bull 20, or bull 24 upper by DPMS and putting the thing together myself? twist rate??? would you recomend an 8" or a 9" twist for this thing? Thanks for looking, Mark.
