Hey guys. I am in the market to buy my first AR15, along with my first M1911. But I have some uncertainty that I need cleared up. So let me set ya'll up: I used to purchase WWII firearms and older "vintage" firearms (Mosins, Kar98k's, SKS's). But my preference is kind of changing now to the modern, but still historical, firearms. I also want to have more American guns and more guns that I can keep forever and ever and grow on. So, hence why I would like an AR15, and an M1911 to go with it. I am thinking the AR15 because the system has been around since the late 1950's, and is still being used by every branch of our armed forces today (It is historical). I was tempted to go for an ACR, but they are too "Tacticool" in my opinion, and its a newer, "immature" weapon (Even though it uses a piston driven bolt). So I think i'll go with the AR15. The AR15 I had in mind was "Windham Weaponry's" basic AR15, 16" barrel, carbine (http://www.windhamweaponry.com/pdf/TechSheets/MPC%201-10-12NP.pdf). Also hence why I would like an M1911. Designed and used since 1911, and is STILL in use today by most of our armed forces (Historical). I am leaning toward "Kimber's" Warrior/Desert Warrior 1911 (http://www.kimberamerica.com/1911/custom-ii/warrior / http://www.kimberamerica.com/1911/custom-ii/warrior#/1911/custom-ii/desertwarrior). Because of the night sights, ambidextrous safety, and the forward rails. Still deciding though which of the 2 styles I want to get. For accessories: on the AR15, I was going to put some Magpul accessories on it, and use "PMag Maglevels" for magazines. For the forearm I was looking for a simple 16" free-float RIS, but haven't found one yet. For weapon illumination I was either going to put a PEQ-15/16 on the rails, or I was going to put a Surefire weapon light onto the rails. For the M1911, I was only going to put a light on the rails, which is either a Surefire X300 (http://www.skdtac.com/SureFire-X300-LED-WeaponLight-p/sur.315.htm), or a Surefire X400 (http://www.skdtac.com/SureFire-X400-LED-WeaponLight-p/sur.317.htm). I am leaning toward the X300 though, because I am not really a fan of lasers, and would be afraid of maybe becoming dependent on them and not on my iron sights, or something like that. I myself do not have a lot of hands-on experience with modern day weapons, so If I could get ya'lls opinion on my choices and the weapons I chose I would appreciate it! Any input will help!
