I used some stock exercise option money today, and ordered an Armalite AR 24. I got the 15 round version with adjustable sites. I think they call it "tactical" - I hate the word, but like the features. I didn't really care about 10 or 15 rounds, but I got the 15 round version, or my*shooting buddies would be calling it a "Hillary capacity" gun.

It's my first center-fire auto-loader since a CZ-52 a long time ago. The CZ-52 didn't work out very well for me (it had a terrible trigger, and eventually the slide cracked). I have been shooting a Blackhawk for a while, and decided to add an auto-loader to the stable.

I shot a friend's CZ-75 a while back, and like that. I went to a gun store and held a P226, an SR9, and an AR 24, and I liked the AR the best by far. I have short fingers, and the P226 didn't fit. The SR9 was slim and all, but I am not planning on carry. The AR 24 fit well, and I really liked the heft of the steel

I paid $501 for the gun (plus tax), and I will pick it up on Wednesday.

I am pretty excited - I don't buy many guns.

The checkering is worth the money if you ask me. I have never seen that nice of checkering on any factory CZs. Most the CZs now have the checkering cast into the frame and isn't that spectacular.

It came yesterday. It looks pretty nice - they are right about no machining marks.

The checkering seems nice.

I haven't shot it yet.

I don't have a stable of custom guns to compare it with, but it seems like a nice gun.
