    Thanks for writing the article I have been into a lot of gun stores and have never had this level of knowledge dropped on me.

    Is it not true that mil-spec is simply what the military requires? It's not the gold standard by any means. I have to believe that their are many ARs out there that exceed mil-spec. Hard to believe that someone would pay $2500.00 and up for a rifle that was just mil-spec.
    There are only 2 things we should fight for. One is defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights.

    Robb,

    Wow, great write up. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your extensive knowledge. I'm going to share this with my kids.

    Sincerely,

    This is a great article, I am a new owner of an Colt M4 carbine 16.1 inch barrel/1-7 twist along with a case of federal xm855 LC 13 head stamped ammo,will be looking for M193 55 gr also. I am not new to shooting only new to the AR, I served in VietNam with the Marines and humped the M60MG and my Marine brothers were packing M14s..We heard horror stories about the little rifle and most of the guys held the M16 with disdain to contempt, this was the early years of the war..This little rifle has now grown some good whiskers so I feel it is doing something right
    I plan on paper killing and small critter hunting mainly and as a home defense tool to join my other weapons,my question is will the EOTech sighting system work say as far out as 300 meters on critters the size of groundhogs and coyotes which we have plenty of. I will be using good varmint loads for hunting,not the milspec. This is my first post,so far I have found this site very informing and people seem very polite...Thanks,Larry Lee

    Based on my background and training I feel like I should've known most of this but I didn't. Then again some weapons training is very specific in the larger calibers. Either way I wish I had read this thoroughly prior to ordering my custom AR. BTW, I never did find the so called 'The chart'.

    The side charging ARs? You will need a different upper. It's just more ergonomic to some that's all.

    **oops. noticed i replied to a super old post. Sorry, trying to post my 30 so I can go on EE.
