How long did you have to wait for the AR? Also, if you don't mind me asking, how bad did it set you back? I ordered one (6.8mm) back at the beginning of November and it still hasn't come in!! They were out of stock when I placed the order and said there was a waiting list. They have been keeping me posted but still no ETA!!! I'm guessing they are having to build it since everything flew off the shelves the week of the election.
I was on a waiting list at a local store where I shop. I was on the list for about 6 days. I can't wait to take it to the range on Saturday. I am not sure what type (brand) of ammo to run through it, I don't want to go cheap cheap cheap but I do wanna be cost effective. The Ruger is a Mark III which shoots .22LR. The bushmaster is a .223/5.56. Glockster, where did you order it from that you are still waiting?
I have a question; did you purposely choose your AR without the Bayonet lug, or was it something you did not notice? I also cannot see the end of the barrel and was wondering if your AR had a Bull Barrel, or if it had a muzzle brake/flash suppresor? When I bought my Bushmaster it was during the Assult weapons Ban, so mine did not have the flash hider or bayonet lug; but after the ban ended I was able to find a DPMS Chrome Lined Upper with the hider and lug. Just curious.
A "Bull Barrel" with the rifle means the same thing as with a pistol; it means a very heavy (thick?) barrel. It does not matter, as your rifle is great - I was just curious, thats all. I also thought that when President Bush let that law expire, that it pretty much opened the door for everyone "Nationwide" to have access to assult weapons. Well, obviously we all do have access to the rifles. Just the little things (add-ons) are abit diferent.
