Thinking of picking up one of these rifles. I have heard issues with the earlier ones. primary use would be shoot 3 gun matches in the local area. Just looking for pro and cons. Should this be left as an idea and just get a regular AR?
I recently purchase a Carbon 15 Type 97. While I haven't shot it nearly as much as I have my ARs, i was happy with its performance. Zero malfunctions and it handles nicely.
My only concern is that there will not be enough apgrades/add-ons available for it. I would like to see 4 railed handguards or some other way to attach a vert fore grip and other accessories. A Burnsed loop, that attaches betwieen the stock and the receiver, would also be nice.
At this point, I don't regret the purchase, but I am having trouble trying to find what niche this gun fills for me.
