In my opinion i think people just Get the colts for bragging rights. id much rather spend less on a rifle that works the same and is just as reliable then pay for the name.

Myself and multiple friends have M&P's. Never has anyone of us had an issue. I believe that for the money, you can't beat a M&P out of the box.

Only building your own will be less money for more "value".

Most will disagree.

In my opinion your logic is as good as your grammar.

Did it ever occur to you that there might be a damn good REASON why folks are willing to pay more for a particular name?

And I do not mean any kind of "bragging rights."

Quality costs more. Always has. Always will.

If you will check the prices of used AR's in your area, you will find that Colt is one of the best at retaining the biggest percentage of it's purchase price, in some years, depending on the laws on the books at the time, exceeding the purchase of a new rifle. During the '94 Clinton gun ban, a pre ban Colt AR would go in excess of 1500 bucks in my area sometimes, depending on condition. This is just one factor to consider, of course. We can't make the decision for you, just give advice based on our experiences.

He nods his head in agreement and says, 'good choice.'

To me that was worth it. :-D

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Cane, Mosin's quote would be a great signature!

Glad he took your advice, I know he is!
