The AR's work predictably well. Fudd guns? Not so much. There's so many things wrong with them. Luckily, there's new bolt action rifles coming out that work fine, right out of the box. No voodoo nonsense with stocks or goofy mounts. Slap an optic on the .mil rail and you're good to go. Seeing tons of Ruger precision rifles out shooting just about everything. No mistake that they're AR-ish. Why shouldn't AR's be more popular. Cheap. Easy. Works.
