    I've personally got a Colt. Of those listed, I'd likely take the Ruger. However, if Palmetto State Armory's 15s are of the same quality as my PA-10, and there's no reason to think they are not, I'd have to agree with this:

    You mean as a malfunction drill lube or an actual drill lube?

    Lol! “Malfunction Drill Lube” is an app description.

    I meant as lube for drilling holes. After installing new bolts and nuts on the rotor head of a Robinson R-22, they have to be drilled through the nut and bolt shank for cotter keys. I tried my old bottle of Frog Lube and was surprised at how well it eased drilling.

    On the other board, you have guys that have seen plenty of ARs fail in training classes and have taken note of trends.

    That's the beauty of a cliffhanger. You can interpret it however you want. :)

    Also, I called Ruger tech support today and was informed the MPR barrel is 4140 chrome moly vanadium, cold hammer forged, and nitride treated for those that might also be interested.

    And also 5R from other articles I’ve been reading today. Hmm, seems my choice can be swayed.
    Usually not with just price point though.;)


    But it’s all moot. I would have bought the pistachio green 1978 Coupe deVille 500 ragtop too. Who would pass that up? They don’t make wire wheels like that anymore. Ruger makes rifles all day.
    Did the 8track still work?
