It was posted a couple days after the original here.

It's still good info and should be noted by people who are looking at 1st builds.

I stopped reading when I got here, which was pretty early on:

Regardless, you will need a rifle that is DEAD NUTS RELIABLE, and made to a degree of quality assurance that you can TRUST it with your life, and the lives of your fellow officers, not to mention the sheep...err, I mean people, under your watch.

A real sheep would have kept on reading.

About the 5.56 Nato VS the .223 Rem, I really would like to argue that with him.
We use 5.56 NATO in our Match Rifles (usmc) and they seem to work just fine.

Most of it is regurgitate info from M4Carbine.net and AR15.com but packaged into one easy place for ignorant, overweight, donut munchers... errr, I mean less informed cops.


Someone should send that "sheep", "watch over" comment to his agency's chief, public information officer, and his local news agency.

Iread this before I put together my first. It is interesting, however I have also heard conficting statements on the 5.56 vs.223 also. The info is good but the conclusion is not. He did not get the best rifle. He picked what he felt was the best one for the money. Otherwise he would have gotten a Colt.

I feel there is better info in this forum.

There are a couple of guys over in one of the 1911 forums who fancy themselves "operators" because they're on a SWAT team, or a sheriff dept. somewhere, and they say COLTs are the only ARs you should buy if your life might ever depend on it.

Why? Well, mostly because they say so, and because they are "operators" who've completed a couple of self-defense carbine courses. :D
