Why so mad?



This is a public forum and since I had previously posted a reply in this thread it is my business.

Seriously, most of us like to keep the weight down, especially toward the muzzle. I'll pass on the rest of your post as it doesn't add to the thread.

Keep the weight down? It weighs less than 7lbs. Any lighter and it would be a .22lr. Im 6'3'' and weigh 225lbs. Its not heavy. BTW Who is us? You mean gun snobs? Or the one upper guy?

I believe by "us" he was referring to "people who regularly shoot AR-15's and/or carry them on a regular basis". You need to not take offense because someone on a public forum prefers a different type of barrel to what you have. No one criticized you for your decision to purchase what you did. There is no substantial evidence to support your decision to call others "gun snobs". What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

^^^^^ Sounds of clapping and laughter. Carried an m4 as my issue rifle for the last 6 of my tour. Guess that makes me a gun snob...

Definitely prefer the pencil barrel on the one I bought for myself. Light is right on the AR.

Only place the hbar is superior is on the varmit rifles. Even there the straight varmit profile is a better choice. Hbar is marketed mainly because it is cheaper to machine.

Most of us, as in most AR owners, do not buy HBARs. My ArmaLite HBAR weighed about 15 oz more than a pencil barrel (both 16"). I was glad to upgrade to a Daniel Defense pencil and didn't lose anything except a lot of weight.

Your HBAR is under 7 lbs? I think you need a new scale.

Gun snobs? I'll let you define that.

Ive been shooting and using the AR platform since 1986. Nice steal on the rest of your post.

The snobs and one uppers like to tell us lowly folk how ignorant we are for not buying a pile of parts from puke state armory and building a better rifle for less. Even on posts where nobody asks about building a gun it happens.
