I want to sell one of my AR's to get a 308.

Should I sell the 20"' 1/7 Colt or the 20" 1/9 Bushmaster? Both are good shooters. Both are in excellent condition.

Which accurately shoots the widest variety of ammo? The 1/7 or 1/9?

The Bushmaster, of course

Buth then again the Colt will be easier to move.

seriously, only you can answer that. If it were my decision - the Bushy would be gone.

no wait.................I wouldn't sell either, and I would hold out until I could afford the 3rd (or next) one.

keep us posted

choose the one that seems to fit you better. whitch one do you use more? i would sell the other and go buy a beautiful .308. my brother is looking into getting the .308. i had to talk him out of buying a metric fal. i know that DPMS has a good .308 pakage for not that much money.

Keep both

I wish I never sold the 2 that I did

I wouldn't sell either one. Every time I let one go I regret it.

I've always had a desire to replace anything I've sold. Bite the bullet and just add to your stable. This advise is worth exactly what you paid for it...

If it was me I'd sell the colt, easier to move and probly more money. I like both but dont think a colt is worth the price. I've never seen a colt that shoots better than mine so......

Just my $.02 though

Just looking for some advice...I have a stable military style firearms....My DSA SA58 is my favorite. I want to sell one of the AR's for a DSA Para Congo.

I have four AR's. The Bushy M4 is my favorite. I don't think that I'll miss ONE of the the 20 inchers too much!

.....at least until I get the Congo.

I'd sell the Colt. I've owned both, preferred the Bushy.

i'd keep the colt and sell the bushy--its easier to pick up another later on

1-7 will give probably give you the best variety, esp if you use heavier bullets; h/w, 1-9 is best overall
