Guns are good for the Republic.
Looks like my issued M16 back in the early 70’s, but mine had the closed bird cage, not the 3-prong.

“Ch-ch-ch-changes…..Time May Change Me, but I can’t Change Time…”
Interesting start to a new post, huh? Kinda sorta ‘Bowie-like’ but different….as you can see by the featured photo, this is going to be a comparison contrast with some history thrown in regarding the quintessential American, ‘Go-To’ rifle, the AR-15.
Let’s start out with a little known trivia fact: Which US military branch had a fully automatic version of the M16 actually designated as the AR-15?
Drum roll: The US Air Force. The USAF chose Colt’s Model 604 and had it designated the AR-15. Same thing as the M16 feature image above (not A1), complete with select fire capability but with all the wonderful improvements (to that time) that Colt had made to ensure reliability in combat conditions.
Colt Model 604 was the AR-15/M-16 model developed primarily for the US Air Force. It differed…

I have been thinking for a while that I would like to get another rifle. Why? Why not? Since I carried an M16 A2 in the infantry, and I’ve put together several AR15’s, I am comfortable with operating that platform. So my choice is leaning towards an AR10 in 7.62 NATO.
Being the cheapskate that I am, I started looking at what I could get for the least cash without buying junk. Palmetto State Armory’s PSA rifle is the cheapest, but there were some things I read about it that didn’t thrill me. My youngest son (often my partner in crime) is highly enamored of Aero Precision, and built his AR15 from all A P parts with MagPul furniture end to end. Heck of a rifle that kid has. The Aero starts around $1400. But for the cash available and the positive reviews, I think I’m going for a DPMS Oracle LR308.
I won’t go into all the reasoning for this choice, as I’m not trying to persuade anyone that I’m right, or even know what I’m doing for that matter. But I’m throwing this out for comments, and hoping that one of my readers has some personal experience with the LR308. Please chime in with your thoughts.
Thanks, The Deputy.
How Much Would A “Buy Back” Of Semi-Auto Rifles Cost? And if you say no….Then what?
