    Can anyone recommend a good ar15 book to me. Just bought a Franklin Armory lower reciever(complete with but stock) but not sure what to put on top. I know I would like a 20 inch barrel. Wanting to shoot out as far as I can. But I don't know the ins and outs with these guns like what is the best rifling for this barrel, best bullet weights. Will the front sight get in the way of a scope. Looking for a book that will explain all this to me. This gun will be used strickly for targets, no hunting.

    Hey, Tikki ... I collected up payments from half the guys and gave the cash to Macy over at the Foxy Lady club. She said you're a regular and she'll be sure to pass it on to you. :p


    Seriously, your Primer is excellent, more info than most AR publications out there!

    Thats the part I don't know yet I don't want to sink so much money into this that my wife gets mad. Like I said I bought the lower on a wim and really havent had alot of time to really study up on what I want to do with the gun. I want it to shoot straight and be on target but not to the point its going to break the bank. I have looked thru some magazines and its very difficult to pick a certain style yet. What I dont want is a forarm that cuts my fingers up when handling it. Been thru that with a buddies. I only want a rail on top and at the barrel end for a bipod. As far as stainless barrel. Not sure I would care for that. Want everything blacked out on it.

    How about an ar15perfomance.com barrel, for about $200, with a 15" MI gen 2 SS hanguards for $190 ish. Buy the pieces one by one spread it out over a couple months, mums the word.

    A 20" 1/8 stainless spiral fluted barrel is on my wish list.

    Or for the "day" I get to, an sbr or suppressor! That'll be a looooooooooooooooo.........oooooooong way away. Sadly.

    Send her a box of roses for every 3 boxes of gun parts and work it into your gun budget.
