Its fucking easy as hell, buy parts from the people who made your gun.
Everything else is personal preference. There is just as much aftermarket support for the Armalite as any other platform. The only thing you CANT get is an ambi mag release.
Armalite makes far better weapons than any Cerberus owned manufacturer, that includes DPMS, Bushy, and Remington. Remington uses the EXACT same parts as DPMS with the ONLY except being the camo jobs and a different barrel.
Armalites weapons have far fewer bad apples leave their shop. If they do, they fix it no problem. With DPMS, its almost like every other rifle is a bad one. All their LPKs are terrible, their quality control is a joke, and I dont think they have any customer service at all.
The only problems you read about Armalites is the old ones which still have old parts, people using jacked up M14 mags because they dont know how to cut a fucking hole, or dumbasses not breaking in their stainless steel barrels correctly.
Armalites GENII mag is one of the most robust and reliable mags out there. You have more options, from 5rd to 25rds. They have the best customer service and quality control out there. All of you who refuse to own Armalite simply because it doesnt take the PMag are complete morons.
There will never be a standard with the 308 ARs. There is no need, gun makers do not need to accommodate you idiots who cant keep track of what rifle you have. Armalite makes a better BCG, better barrel nut, uses better materials for their receivers, machines everything IN HOUSE AND IS NOT OUTSOURCED, has better triggers, and you guessed it, a better magazine.
I dont understand why you people want others to cater to your laziness. Buy what rifle feels best to YOU, buy parts for that rifles, buy extra mags for that rifle, buy ammo for that rifle, if a 20$ mag is your number one concern, you should not be buying these kind of guns. Stick to the AR15, because you are not adult enough to handle an AR10.
So quit crying like little babies, grow some balls, and just buy what gun feels good in your hand. There does not need to be a standard on a weapon that is not used across the world. Who the fuck cares if some military uses it or not. Last I checked, numerous armies from across the world make a SHIT LOAD OF BAD DECISIONS when it comes to equipping there soldiers. USA being in the top of the list. Fuck the Canucks, fuck the Brits, and fuck everyone else. I own an Armalite and will be shooting far longer than any of you with rifles from Cerberus corp.
Buy Armalite, support America!
