M1 and M1A are my favorites. Then come the AR's
Notice i mentioned both... Ive never shot either: my experience is with a CAI C308 "CETME". But its kinda like a hi-point... Runs well but is a known doofus.
Guess that would make one of my AR's second.
That's funny. Yeah, the CETME runs fine, goes bang every time, fires a powerful cartridge, but yes kind of a big heavy awkward handling doofus.
If they close either delivers a devastating horizontal or vertical butt stroke. Then there’s also the sticky thing on the end. As and old (let me tell you about what it was really like at Tun Ta earn) jarhead 0311 I’m still more than passably competent with these systems
Alternatively, the Advanced Armament Corporation Honey Badger. Again, not exactly a rifle, but close enough. I have no personal experience with it, but I do with a .300 Blackout pistol. I see no reason why, with the exception of the suppressor, that they'd be any different. I'm getting conflicting results when I look up if the Honey Badger was ever actually used in "battles", so it may not technically qualify.
I do love my Cetme. But it took some work to get there. Kinda like buying a classic car from a previous owner (CAI) who didn't know what the heck he was doing when he turned wrenches on it, and having to correct a lot of issues to make 'er good again
I guess that's not really a 'rifle,' so I guess I'll have to pick something else. Prolly the M1 or M14...
I've got two Vz.58's and no AK. Never did. I have a single AR15 just to have one because all the cool kids are doing it. Peer pressure.
I'm thinking of buying a 5.56 Vz.58 because I like the design so much.
All ways wanted either a 762 or 556 in the compact pistol to SBR, with the old metal folder!!
I just meant sort of shoddy construction on the C308. I like the way they handle. I even put a set of actual CETME surplus wood furniture on it.
I like my .450 Bushmasters quite a lot, but for sheer knockdown power I have a couple large frame ARs in .308 that are superbly accurate, easy handling and will knock down a hog or other adversary DRT. Same goes for the .338 Fed though its barrel is much heavier.
If not constrained to semi-auto then I have a Savage 110 with 16" heavy barrel in a short and light MDT chassis with an Ultradyne Pulse brake that shoots like a pussycat but hits like a bolt of lightning and is very, very, very accurate out to 800+ yards.
Wouldn’t that be third choice?
I don’t think all that like one, hate the other.
If I had to pick one over those two, the M39 would be an easy one.
Glad you like the handling. !!! Kind of a "clumsy" gun for me. That's funny, I picked up a wood furniture set and replaced the plastic fantastic stock on mine too. Awkward handling gun for me, but it sure looks nice with the wood. It's a bitchen looking rifle for sure. I figure it's my "fixed position" gun for when the looters or Chinese or Aliens or starving neighbors attack my house. If I need to venture out, and take the fight to "them", like the Josey Wales would do, it won't be the CETME.
