I hear that! I bought a 10 pack for customer builds at $225 each, and that was a deal at the time!

They have a few others on sale also, a 6.8 bolt for $119! And a 5.56 basic bolt for $99. But the nickle boron really makes for a sweet, easy to clean bolt. The best price I've seen elsewhere is ~$200.

I will do that. Now I don't have any beard hairs to snag, but I'll report on comfort level anyway. The gun this is going on has a mid-length gas system and very very little recoil, so comfort when shooting should not be a problem.

UPS shows estimated delivery to be Wednesday the 18th. That week wait is gonna feel long!

After pheasant hunting, I broke out the burnt bronze 5.56 and put another 120 rounds through it.

Default my dusty AR

i dusted the cobwebs off my AR and decided to start investing in a bit for as my "christmas" present to me....

my s&w sport is not impressive to most here, i'm sure. i got it to explore the AR platform, and for the $679 initial investment.....i am really happy with it. it is fun, has been 100% reliable thus far, and has proven to be damn accurate (i think it has MOA potential, but i have only tested it out to 50 yards w/o magnification to this point).

anyway, i like it and i like the AR platform.

in the last few weeks i have made some minor adjustments. my biggest dilemma has been optics choice (surprise!). to this point, i added a cheek rest, rail and fore grip.....bought 3 optics (and returned 2 ). right now a nikon 1-4 m-223 sits on her. i THINK that might be the ONE for me, it is very very nice! still on the fence a little bit considering returning this scope and saving for an eotech....but not sure if i could ever spend that $ and feel ok with it.

here she is TODAY. nothing special, but she's growing on me....

thanks guys.

as said, looking through the awesomeness in this thread....my AR don't stand out too much. but i really like it. i am enjoying the platform much more than i expected, considering i am generally a "wood & steel" guy when it comes to rifles.

AR's are great fun, i am glad i have one now!!!

Yes they definitely grow on you! Kind of like potato chips, you can't eat just one! Try as I might my personal collection of AR's stays around five. I build myself a new one and someone buys another one....
