Ditto on this. What is meant in this quote by AR, I don't know for sure, but I have to point out that I would want an actual AR built by Armalite, not just a variant. I don't know why. Same reason Cane likes Colt's I reckon.

The thing is there are a lot of places manufacturing better ARs than Armalite.

I'm sure there is. I've heard great reviews on LMT, Stag, and I'm quite fond of the M&P myself. But Armalite is still the original.

I would wake all to soon from that dream... Just like the one with

I've let this one go long enough, so I'll give my take. I, like many of you, wouldn't have the money to afford ammo for some of the more exotic calibers, and I'm of the school of thought that I either want a lot of ammo, or I want big bullets that go a long way.

My choice would also be a .308 AR-10. While the REPR is REALLY nice, I'm just not to keen on that side charging handle. No doubt it would work without issue, but it's different than all other AR's, so I would rather stick with only one battery of arms. My choice would be a toss up between the LMT .308, and the KAC SR-25. Either would come with both the 16 and 20 inch barrels. The LMT has the quick swap barrels, while the KAC would be two separate uppers. Not really sure of all the pros or cons of each.

One pro for the LMT is the weight saved by not having to have two upper receivers. But the KAC would be nice because each upper could have it's own optic.

It would be a toss up really, though I bet the KAC would win in the end.

Indeed. Don't get me wrong. Armalite makes a good gun, but not as good as some other manufacturers.

It would be like getting a Mercedes Benz over a Ferrari or Rolls Royce. Just because they did it first, doesn't mean they do it the best. Sure Mercedes puts out a good car, but not up to the standards of the Ferrari or Rolls, or any number of other companies.
