No sweat, Winds.

Cartridges are (L to R) a 7.62 NATO, a 5.56 NATO, and a 9mm Parabellum

The AR can be in any of several different calibers by changing the upper half of the reciever and barrel. The 5.56mm/ .223 is sorta the vanilla, and it can be had in a number of other calibers- so it can be well nigh impossible to dtermine caliber if you are not holding it.

Winds: on c3's comparison pic, the AR can have a carry handle where the scope is, or the front triangle sight can be gone on the flat top model. Flat top is pictured, which means no carry handle.

Yep- sorta the Barbie Doll of rifles. You can get the basic rifle, or you can get the Malibu version, the Dream House version, etc.

Speaking of Barbie dolls, they now have the divorced Barbie.


She comes with all of Ken's stuff.....

They were never married. Barbie is not one for commitment. I think she's a little bit of a 'bad girl'. I think I saw a "Barfly Barbie". She looked terrible!!!

Not to change the subject...... But why does the video they use on newscasts these days suck so bad? I'm watching the footage of the capture of perp 2 and it just sucks. Looks like cell phone vid with scotch tape over the lense. There was better footage of the Vietnam war on TV back in the 60's.
