Very well written , I wish that I had this to reference two months ago when I started looking for an AR lol . It was information overload and I never knew that there were so many companies putting out AR's until I started looking . I wanted an AR that shot heaver bullets as I have a daewoo with a 1 in 10 twist that shoots up to 55 gr bullets great . After much looking on line I decided to go with the RRA ATH carbine , I ordered it and a month later It came in . My wife surprised me with a set Magpul sights and I took it to the range last week end , so far I think I made a good choice for being as ill informed as I was LOL . Now the next quest is what optics to go with .
Thank you AgentTikki for all the great information .

Agent, very well written post and very informative.

P.S. don't feed the trolls, or they multiply!

P.S.S. and no you can't have a pet troll either!

Tikki- you know what I have told you about bringing those in the house. Now we will never get those stains out of the rug.





Excellent article, BTW.

Aww, Man! I missed what the little guy had to say. No doubt somewhere in your fine tutorial you somehow implied your gun was bigger than his, Tikki!

You'll remember the quality of a gun long after you forget how much you paid for it.
