    Its the paintjob... I ABHORE realtree camo.
    I'll leave it be for a while, but eventually I will be painting her darker. Perhaps a dark grey instead of my typical black gun...

    Oh I can't wait until Wednesday when I get to try her out!
    Since the evil black gun on top is 5.45 X 39, no indoor range action. So I'll play with her more when I go back to my parent's place in a week or so. I also get to play with my 7mm Mag Savage finally then too!
    Range report to follow!

    For what it is, it's a nice looking tool. There's been worse looking stuff out there I"ve seen.

    Yea. Price was right, and it was in stock at DICKS... apparently the camo hurt sales.
    she'll do for plinking, training, and coyote schwacking...

    Looks like a Bushnell Trophy MP, not an ACOG. I have one, and like it. Its a good red-dot, but sort of an odd choice for a hunting gun because of zero magnification.

    i notice them in a lot of gun shops by me,people want them black,but if you want an ar, theres plenty of theose r15's available.in a worst case scenerio,you can always refinish it & get black stock & handguard.it doesnt look too bad. maybe it will help to get by that evil black rifle stigma,& fall more in the sporter category.

    Beauty is in the eye of the holder . . . the better it hits your target, the more beautiful it is.

    Not ugly to me. I am a coyote hunter and camo is just the ticket. As a matter of fact, my R-15 took a running coyote at 120 yards early this morning. That camo sure is deadly!
