    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Why you should purchase an AR-15

    Okay, I was going to write a full article on this but I'm feeling lazy. I'm just going to make a list format. What else do you guys have to add?

    -Lightweight
    -Compact
    -5.56mm/.223 means light recoil yet high stopping power (v.s. other low-recoil loads like handgun calibers): easy to use, especially for smaller people and women
    -Accurate
    -Reliable
    -Fairly affordable
    -Incredible aftermarket support

    To go along with the aftermarket support, there are tons of free resources for people looking to do anything from manufacture ar15s from raw blocks of aluminum to simple troubleshooting and maintenance. If you can think it, chances are good someone has already created a thread on 5 different discussion boards to ask about it, and multiple industry professionals have weighed in on it.

    Pistol, Rifle, Carbine, or Short Barrel Rifle?

    Also what do you think of the AR in none 5.56mm Calibers?

    I'm currently building a 3Gun ready hybrid (carbine w/ 18" barrel and rifle length gas system). Once that is done, I am going to put together a suppressed SBR rig in .300 blackout, but my current state hates freedom (OCT1 AWB which precludes manufacturing any "new" assault weapons . . . which includes putting a short barrel on an existing firearm). So to get around that, I will be running a modified liberty leonidas setup. Link:

    Edit: As for why you might consider either of the builds I'm doing. . .

    1.) Because 3Gun looks fun. That particular build is surprisingly handy, especially for the barrel length. Also, it wouldn't be very hard to convert such an AR15 into an SPR clone.

    2.) Because a suppressed SBR in .300 blackout is a really handy home defense weapon. And fun to shoot. A lot of fun.

    How do you think the .300 Blackout compares to the .338 spectre?

    I have been looking off and on seriously at doing an AR Pistol I am in CA so unless I want to go featureless I am stuck with a bullet button anyways.
    Not a chance of getting a SBR stamp out here either so pistol with a good cheek weld is my best option.
    Some of the PDW uppers are nice I like both the PWS and the Adams arms uppers appeal to me. I just need to get some money together for the upper and time on one of my buddies mills for my lower.

    Think I will run a rifle gas tube as well.

    So basically an SBR sans a butstock.

    .300 blackout is a great round for Assault Weapons Ban states that grandfathered in AR15s. The particular bill that pwned the state of Maryland seems to recognize the unreality of enforcing a grandfatbered magazine ban, so it's nice to know that a 30 round PMAG is going to work fine with any weapon I use, and give me 30 rounds per mag.

    Speaking in terms of ballistics, .300 blackout is not the best round ever, but it is a good "all 'rounder." It only requires a barrel swap, it is cheap to shoot and reload, it works well subsonic and supersonic suppressed and unsuppressed, and it will do some serious damage to anything organic inside 150 yards.
