Why not, there are clubs for food now I see, might as well have one for a fine rifle design.

If there can be a forum dedicated to aviation, I don't see why a little black rifle shouldn't have its own dwelling place as well...

Exactly :) Plus, this whole forum is dedicated to the "little black handgun".....we need a place to discuss his older, more experienced relative....the black rifle.

BTW...is there a certain number of votes needed for a club to be formed?

Na-na-na-na-naanaah! Hehe, just playing...had to rub it in :) I'm flat broke now though. I'm about to order a 30 round mag, and I will be totally flat broke. Hopefully I can scrounge up a few bucks for a couple of boxes of ammo so I can go try it out this weekend.

Did you decide which one you were getting yet?

Oh, and hehehe....you know that fixed stock I advised you not to get? Well, err....that's what's coming on mine ;e Didn't really want it, but there was a little mix up with my order(my fault), and I got if for the same price as the regular A2 anyways. I do like the looks of it better than the regular stock though. Hopefully in september I can trash it and get a real collapsing stock.

AZG23
01-19-2004, 23:38
You are sooooo not nice! LOL...but nananananana...I just got 4 30 round LaBelle USGI's...and as soon as I get the rifle, Ill be ordering 1000 rounds of 193...nananananananaaaaa....but you'll be there before me....hahaha


I decided on the Bushy A2 stock, A3 upper..16 in barrel...no muzzle break...hopefully its not gone when Im ready..or it'll be a Bushy M4 with the muzzle break.I know, I know..but Im not waitin'!!!!! hahaha....it has the fixed tele stock and M4 style barrel for $800....Im not real sure of the difference of the regular light 16 in barrel and the M4 stlye 16 in barrel....??? got any clues other than looks....?

Not too much difference besides looks really, and weight. Unless you want to mount a grenade launcher(that's what the cut out is for on the M4 barrel), there's no practical reason to get the M4 except for looks. Theoretically, the heavier the barrel, the more accurate it will be. But I doubt you could tell a difference side by side on a 16" barrel. Also, the heavier barrel on the M4 can absorb more heat than the light weight barrel. But I doubt that really matters unless you rapid fire 500 rounds or shoot it full auto.

I had ordered the M4 last week, but it was out of stock and I couldn't get a firm answer when it would be in stock again. So I cancelled it today and am having them 2nd Day Air the regular A4(A3) upper which has a heavy barrel under the hand gaurd and is turned down on the exposed part of the barrel.

What'd you order and where'd you order it from?

I ordered a Bushmaster Patrolmans Carbine (http://www.bushmaster.com/le/weapons/bushmaster_xm15_e2s_patrolman_16.htm) from a firearms exporter (www.weareguns.com). I am currently waiting for the State Department to approve the Export License, which I hear can take 1-5 weeks. This is week 3 ;)

You're not gonna believe this!! I was doing a routine scan through our companys anti-spam logfile. Guess what I found:

A message with the subject: "You export license has been approved". Somehow the word "approved" has been configured as a spam-word and therefore the email was dropped!! It was sent on the 9th of Jan!!!!

Well, anyway, the rifle will ship in the beginning of next week

DJ, I was thinking about asking for 223, but then I'd feel inferior to you from a standpoint of speed and power ;f

Could I please have 33 is it's available? That's how old I'll be on my next birthday. If I keep buying (and building) more ARs my wife will kill me before then, so "33" can serve as a self reminder ;h
