I have a BM shorty, I want another .223. I really like HKs, but they are $$$, so should I buy a HK93, Colt M4 look-a-like, or maybe a 20" colt??? Thanks!!!

I say, if price is an issue, go with another AR. [heavy]

depends on what u want it for if u want once to shoot get another AR parts are much cheaper and easyer to find

I looked at it this way. I will be able to buy an AR15 easily for a long time. I can get a cheap one in the $500 range and the most sought after prebans run $1600-1800. You can find an AR15 at juast about any store that deals in semiauto rifles. How often do you find a HK93 on a shelf, much less at a reasonable price. I traded 1 and 3/4(not a complete rifle) AR15s for a 93A3. The AR15s I traded were post-ban. They were replacable. I could walk into a local shop and ask to have either of them ordered, and get them for a decent price delivered in a couple of weeks. I could not walk into any store and ask to have a clean 93 delivered for a decent price. If you find a 93 for a good price, buy it. They were a very limited import. I wish it had a bolt catch, but I can live without it. AR15s are replacable. A post-ban AR15 is just as fun and usefull as a pre-ban, you don't have the option of a current production post-ban HK93.

funny i was just looking at my small arms of the world book and drooling over a g41, and i remember i had an opportunity to get a hk93 a while back. now i regret not getting the 93 and a rack of mags when they were $30-40 each for a 40 rounder. if you can spring for the hk at a good price DO IT! steve

Check out the FAL ([url]http://www.fnfal.com/falfiles/[/url] and the M1A ([url]http://www.springfield-armory.com/prod-rifles-m1a.shtml[/url]). These are REAL battle rifles. I own an M1A, and If you want a .308 rifle, I couldn't recommend it more. A lot of people like FALs too.

Tac-Girl, Let me make a minor assumption--you are in a state that allows AR's or HK's (not California). Do you have any possibility (or desire) of getting a full auto in the future (assuming your state allows it)? Let's say you do. That would be the main reason to buy an HK over an AR. With a registered HK sear, you can have a full auto gun in several configurations (or even several calibers if you move it from gun to gun). An AR's mags are about 1/3 to 1/4 the price of an HK's. I like the idea of keeping all one type of mag in a given caliber (keeps things simple). The HK is also relatively heavy for a .223 gun. One other possibility you forgot to mention is an FNC. Caliber .223, most of them are folding stock versions, works extremely well, and there are auto-sear's available. It also takes AR-15/M-16 Mags. FNC $2000 HK 93 $2000 AR (pre-ban) $1000-1200 Autosears FNC $1600 HK $4000 AR (DIAS) $4000 Makes the FNC the best deal in a conversion gun. FNC: [img]http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=1157297&a=11109695&p=44316138&Sequence=0&res=high[/img] Of course, you can do this with the HK and sear: [img]http://www.hkpro.com/image/HK53A3left.jpg[/img] The conversion to an HK 53 will cost about $1000.

Stay with the AR design and parts. It's [b]the weapon[/b] of the next revolution, resistance, whatever.[BD] HK-93 is an excellent weapon, if not 'over-engineered' for what it does. When you have so many ARs that you don't know what to do with them all, THEN you get the HK-93! Eric The Hun

FAL if you want a .308 Another .223? Try a Robinson Armaments M96.

What you really need is a Critter_fr. They're inexpensive, easy to maintain, reliable as all hell, and a ton of fun, especially after the sun goes down....

CritterFR, although I don't know this for a fact, somehow I suspect that TACGIRL has the "after the sun goes down" department taken care of. I mean, what sane female would troll for dates on this board? By her previous posts, she sounds OK, so why not give her a serious answer? BTW, don't they have any girls in your town that will go out with you? [;)]

I don't have a serious answer. I gave those up for Lent. [:)]

I would sell all I had for an HK-93. An AR everybody has. Be an Original, go for the HK. [smoke]
