No problem, glad I could help.
This is how I break it down, when one is considering a piston gun:
Do you want parts interchangeability with a standard AR?
*This means more aftermarket support, cheaper parts, possible to find parts in a TEOTWAWKI scenario.
If so, then go for an AR with a piston kit, like the Sig516 or Stag, etc....
If not, (maybe you already own an AR and want something different) then a Sig556, ACR, SCAR, etc....might be a good choice!
I did it backwards, I bought a Sig556 because I got a killer price...caught BRD, and now I'm in the process of saving up for a LaRue PredatAR.
Well I know that what I absolutely WANT are a good AR (I don't need a top of the line model since I'm new to this part of gun ownership) and a PCC. I am in love with the Beretta CX4 Storm carbine and the range where I shoot ARs rents out S&W M&Ps.
