I'm a dyed in the wool .308 shooter but my friends have all gone the black rifle route. I owned a Colt SP1 many years ago, sold it and then had a Colt HBAR which I sold when I moved to CA and the gun ban talk got heated about 1989-1990. I shot the M16A1 and A2 in the service but my heart has always belonged to the M14/M1A. I came into some money and decided to take the AR15 plunge again. I just put a hold on a Stag Arms lower built up with an A2 stock and ordered a Del-Ton A2 upper assembly with a 1-9 chrome lined barrel. It will be interesting to give the A2 rifle a spin again - once all the pieces arrive.

Split the difference. Go with an AR-10.

Look on the bright side, .223 is cheaper and you can hand it to a friend when the Zombies come.

Drop some coin on a A3 upper, I think you will enjoy the platform more.

Welcome to the dark side.

Right now I'm still an iron sight guy so the A2 is the model for me.

AR15s are the dark side? So the majority is part of the dark side?

Well, welcome back!

oah skipped a line while reading and saw that you already have a lower...my bad

If thats the case A2, i've owned 6 AR's (not bragging other people put me to shame) and have sold all but one. The A2's just deliever in terms of iron sight only rifles great choice.

You're gonna like the awesome power of the darkside !!!

308 AR is a good way to go!! 223/5.56 is gonna be cheaper to shoot though.
