    I know it's a seller's market right now and we can all use a few extra $$$, if that's your only .223, I wouldn't be so anxious. MHO you understand.

    If it is your only "battle" rifle, then what do you plan to use for the "battle"?

    No... high capacity, high speed clips.

    If they're high speed, are they low drag?

    If you add winglets, but they'll probably outlaw those.

    Don't sell your guns. There is never a reason, unless you are trying to upgrade, and in this market that won't work.

    If you need your gun, and you no longer have it, what will you do? Money can be had in other ways. Think twice before selling your guns.

    After I sell it, I'm going to a local gun show to upgrade to a .308

    Winglets? I was sure Trip would be all over this! If you add winglets to a high velocity banana clip it would turn into.....a unicorn! A unicorn that is full of hate, death, and magic.

    Semi-auto .308s are starting to get scarce, as well as ammo.

    I bought almost all .308 ammo that Bass Pro Shop (in Mobile) had.

    I hope your battle rifle doesn't take high capacity ammunition feeding devices, or have a military style flash suppressor.

    Cause that mother****er might just up and kill a buncha innocent folk.

    Sorry, but a battle rifle by definition uses FULL POWER rifle ammo. An M-1 Garand is a battle rifle. An M1A is a battle rifle. An HK-91 is a battle rifle. ANYTHING in 5.56 is NOT a battle rifle.

    Good luck. You may have just sold your 2nd amendment rights to the highest bidder, inventories of every rifle are lowest they have been in almost 20 years and prices are sky high...what are the chances you will be able to replace what you just sold?

    Is the horn considered an "evil" feature?
