I was just curious what everyones favorite configuration is for an AR.. Myself I can not decide between a standard 20" or an M4 so I am going to buy both [whacko]

20" AR-15A2, preban of course. [;)]

20", A2 stock and sights, FH+grenade launcher, Bayonet lug, pistol grip and 3 round burst parts. If its good enough for the USMC, its good enough for me. Too bad that configuration costs $5000. Kharn

Depends on the application, But overall, I guess my fav is the standard 20" A2 with Gov't profile barrel. Kiwi

Fixed handle M-4 configuration is my personal favorite with 20" govt. model being 2nd.Both in pre-ban.

Colt SP1 20" 1/12 barrel, followed closely by Bushmaster XM-15E2S(pre ban) 20" Govt. profile 1/9 barrel.

Ditto on the A2 20" GOVT profile. G to G as an all around rifle.

Definitely the M4gery - Several years ago I stumbled across a deal on a 14.5" Colt M4 barrel and didn't quite know what to do with it. But my friend Mark Serbu [url]http://www.serbu.com[/url] fabricated a slightly longer A2 flash hider and pinned it, so I figured I'd build up one of the pre-ban Olympic lowers that I'd been hoarding. It turned out to be my absolutely favorite AR of all time!! At the range, it can out shoot my buddy Russell's factory Colt H-BAR no matter who is shooting it. Plus it's so light and handles so well, it almost aims itself! [img]http://www.mindspring.com/~steel_rat/m4.jpg[/img] Since then, Kurt at KKF has started to make flash hiders specifically for this, so I don't have to use up favors with Serbu to build more. I like the M4 handguards. And while I appreciate the quality of the Colt telestock, I don't care how many positions it has because the only ones I use are fully open and fully collapsed. The bipod is a cheap Ramline that works surprizing well and cost $12. For the flat-top upper I've got a Colt carry handle, a DPMS rear sight, and an Aimpoint Comp M, but the C-MORE is the best of them all. I have no idea why these aren't more popular. And the orange Thermolds are always a conversation starter. [:D]

Any config, is fine with me . Just so it goes BOOM and not just click [heavy]

I like my CQB style M4, but the slightly longer Bushmaster with ACOG and Jewell trigger, really make for a great shooting and easy to carry weapon. [img]wsphotofews.excite.com/032/Mp/Wb/5x/qQ66921.jpg[/img]

14.5" Pre-Ban M-4 w/ Flat-Top Upper, Detachable Carry Handle, OKO Reflex Sight, & 6-Position Stock and most off all in A1 Select-Fire (Semi/Full-Auto.) Add a M203 Grenade Launcher to top it off.
