I'm confused... why do you need a backup?

Well... Only way to justify another rifle/parts to gf.

Eh? Do you mean you recommend 6940p over ruger?

Oh... unlike these other jokers, I get that.

Incidentally, I'd recommend trying to sell it to the GF like I sold it to my wife... there is a law going into effect requiring the registration of rifles like handguns. For whatever reason, that rang a bell for the wife, so I'm the new owner of my first AR.

So... the original question was what confused me. You don't need a "backup" as much as you need a new rifle. Now that we know it's just an obfuscation, tell us what you really want. If you're looking for something new, just go for the Ruger. It's different enough. That way you'll know a newer system.

Kappy,
What i really want is piston ar, preferably colt 6940p. If i spend 2g on another rifle gf is gonna have a fit, therefore need to decide between 6940p upper/ruger sr 556 upper/ s&w m&p 15 psx complete rifle. I figure i can justify m&p 'cos they are inexpensive... Whacha think?

if you're gonna drop 2K+ on a piston AR get an LWRCI M6G...they're dope...same stuff MARSOC as well as other SF units use, utterly reliable and proven, you can't go wrong

Lol, that is pretty much how I got SWMBO on board with me getting my first AR. There was a news report on TV about the bullet button and they were saying things like "This Assualt Rifle could be in your neighbors house and it is perfectly legal, for now". So I told her "uh, yeah, now I need to go and pick one up before they ban it". Two weeks later, purchasing my M&P15. :D


For those that don't know, SWMBO is "She Who Must Be Obeyed". :)

I was denied for 3 wks for buying 6920. I endured it by stroking my colt, and to be honest, didnt miss her that much..

Don't leave out the hk mr556 upper. They are going for about 1.8k on gunbroker.

I think for about 2k, just spend a little more to get a complete rifle....

seriously what's so wrong with the ruger?

I think the biggest downside is that it's got a proprietary rail system

but otherwise it looks like it's good...

For just below $2k, take a look at the Robarm XCR if you want something very reliable and different.

I like mine as well. Had it about a year with 2k+ rounds through it. The only small issue I had was getting jams from 5.56 NATO or other hotter rounds on the default gas setting. Dial it back to 1 for those, and it's GTG. Proprietary rail kind of sucks, but at least it's unique :P I've had a lot of people ask me what is on mine. You can see it in my signature picture.

Interesting. Do you have a source for that?
