What is the ultimate AR? Either of one manufacturer’s complete rifle or the ultimate in customizing ones own with a hodgepodge of parts…list parts please.

I know this question could be miscued, as everyone has their own opinion but that’s what’s interesting. I’ve looked and looked at every manufacture’s AR’s and can’t decide for my next purchase. I’m looking for something that’s truly a prize, sort of like going from a Kimber to a Blaser. I’m sure by posing this question I’ll undoubtedly learn or discover things I might never otherwise find (as I already have by joining AR15.com).

Thanks, Sly

I agree! But for this, I want something new.

Actually here's one for you, when sept. 13th passes, will M16's drop a little in price (sorry collectors)?

M16's will not be effected by the ban expiring.

I often find myself unable to sleep at night because I'm mentally piecing together my next builds.

If one wanted to buy a pre-ban M16, where would you go? What are some trustworthy dealers who sell quality?
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 7:25:00 PM EST
M16's are automatic weapons. they are coverd by NFA not the ban. First you would have to find out if your state even allows NFA weapons, then find a dealer and get ready to wait on paperwork.

what's the difference between a colt match target and a knights SR-15 besides price? is there a quality difference in components, the way it's built (fit and finish wise), what...if any, please add your comments? or what about taking a factory colt/knights lower and having someone like mid south tactical build a custom upper or buying a LMT?

The Knight's SR-15 Match comes with the following:

Kriger barrel
Two-stage KAC trigger (largely regarded as the best)
KAC FF RAS (maybe a URXII now)
KAC low profile gas block
KAC 600 meter rear flip-up rear sight
KAC flip-up front sight
KAC bipod stud
1 MOA quarantee

Given the components that come with the Knight's rifle, the price is actually somewhat of a bargain considering they can be picked up for around $1650.

I'll let someone else fill you in on the Colt Match since I'm not too familiar with that rifle.

No, I have not purchased from either of those dealers, as I do not have the money.

Both of those dealers come highly recommended by respected members of this board though. Hang out in the M-16 forum if you want more information about getting an M-16 or other NFA regulated weapon.
