I thought I'd posted this here yesterday but cannot seem to find my post...
I am considering a semiautomatic rifle for fun at the range, and am somewhat familiar with the M-16 since I use it in the military.
I'm considering the LAR-8 (Rock River Arms) or AR-10. Currently in Iraq, so can't look at either rifle up close at this time since I'm not near a rifle store, but was wondering about the basics. Do either of these rifles have the selectable three-burst/single shot mode?
Do both rifles allow for installation of a night-vision scope? I'm considering the 16" barrel versions of each (A4??)
Finally, what are the differences between the rifles made during the ban period, versus those available now?
New to purchasing firearms... just want to make the correct decision.
