i promised myself that i would never own one of these, but while being well stocked in M14s and AKs i decided i needed to fill the Black Rifle Quota. i guess i have never liked how most of these rifles lack individuality, so i went with the less common plane jane 20" A4 profile. it's a Stag Arms Model 4. im a total noob to the .223 world so we will see.....

The nice thing about the AR platform is that it's easy to customize and to it to make it your own.

AR-15s lack individuality compared to M14s or AKs? That's rich. ;)

it's a non-black rifle thing. you wouldn't understand.

I said the same thing for years. I was a blue steel and walnut kind of guy untilI bought a black rifle from a friend because he needed the money.

Now I have/had a safe full of them (sadly lost in a recent boating accident though).

You're in for a lot of fun and I'd wager it's not your last one!

Take yours, lay it on a gray tile floor and snap a few. That's what it looks like.

Seriously, nice rifle. You will love it. Great fun to shoot. Mine is a Rock River A2 w/20" HBar

For iron sight shooting, I much prefer the 20" traditional profile rifles over the carbines.

sweet 20inch is the way to go I think. Softer shooting, better accuracy, and down range oomph.

Good for you. :) Personally, I never liked the things when I was in the service, and haven't had one since. If I got one, I think it'd be more or less like yours except an A2 model. Individuality be danged, I'd want one like the majority I handled in the service, just to see if of grew on me of it was my very own.

Remember, that is YOUR rifle. There ARE many like it, but that one is YOURS.

A rifle should have a 20" barrel.

Well, depending on how u define it, it does. M-16 is a rifle, m4 is a carbine.

Yes, but I also used a concrete bench ;)

BTW, I don't shoot that recipe anymore. I learned a valuable lesson about working up loads in cold weather and then having a few issues when shooting in hot weather.

Sorry about the size of that picture. Last time I posted it did not blow up like that.
