i was looking at olympic models and was wondering what the dif. was between a plinker and regular ar15.....and what is a good economical maker of ar15(low money high accuracy...if possible).

thanks,

bandit

    i'm looking at a colt ar15 at a gun shop . how can i date the gun .it is a sporter with the serial # 016296 . the price of the gun screams pre-ban and would only be worth thecost if it turns out to be so .it is in fine condition , it has a 16" barrel with what i think is a flash suppresor , a round foreend ,but no bayonet lug .the asking price is $1300 + tax. is that a fair price ? thanks for any help provided , steve

    I really need an unbiased opinion on what is the best configuration for an AR without having to empty out my bank account.

    Which model is easiest to upgrade from say a basic or starter version?

    I'm looking to purchase my first AR15 (Olympic or Rock River Arms varmint). Being new to this, I'm trying to look at all the possibilities. I'm leaning towards purchasing an upper & lower assembly From RRA. I can save around 75.00. What will I need in addition to complete the rifle? How about Accuracy? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    I have an ar15 with both a .223 and .45acp upper. The 45acp upper is new and I reload 45acp. Therefore, I want to reuse the spent brass.
    Anyone have experience with ar15 brass catchers as sold by Cabelas, Midway, Natchez, etc?
    Just wonder if they work well, sort of or not at all. My questions come from wondering if the "mesh net" interferes with the ejection of the spent brass???
