People don't seem to know what "AR Variants" means, it sounds like it could be M4 vs SPR vs Varminter, etc.

Why not change it to something more descriptive such as "Alternative AR-15 Calibers"?

I was thinking something more along the lines of "SHIVAN and Gaijin's Love Shack-don't ask, don't tell, or they'll shoot you. Or yell at each other. A lot."

What's really ironic is posting in here is but a fraction of a fraction of my posting on this site. I try to waste no more than 2 posts per day on dum-dum.

On topic:

I believe the subtitle covers the forum description. Or maybe I'm not reading it right.


AR Variants
308s, 50s, and more!

It does, but most people have the attention span of a gnat and never get to the small print

We need a flashy neon sign that says "6.8 SPC questions go here", and have a scantily clad chick with big hooters pointing at the link

Anyway, it was just a selfish suggestion because it seems that most of the alternative caliber threads (which I am interested in) end up in either the main ar-15 section or in "rifles, uppers, lowers etc"

I'm gonna have to agree with Griz on the issue, but I think it is more a question of the mods in the other forums moving those 6.8 and so forth posts to THIS forum. I'm not trying to flame any mods or say that I could do a better job, but it seems like alot of variant caliber posts can be found in general forums.

I come to this forum to find info sometimes and end up finding what I was looking for in the General Discussion board.

Just my .02

OK...you got me

Seriously...I do agree that this forum would be filled with more useful information that pertains to its title if certain threads were moved and people posted in the right forum in the first place.

BTW....are you goin to the range this weekend??

You know, I agree....

Suggestions? I don't think the original one will flow.......anything else?

At least make up something catchy.....

Well not trying to isolate the grendel and 6.8 owners or interest why not simply

Big Bore Ar Variants
Home of the large caliber AR-15's

And have a section dedicated to the other calibers such as the Grendel and 6.8 maybe ?
That way there could be a forum dedicated to the 243's 6.8's and the other smaller variants with out the readers having to sift through posts about the the 458's 475's and 50 beowulfs.

Maybe not make immediate individual forums for each one yet but as the interest and topics grow branch them off into seperate forums or create tacked threads for each of the calibers as more detailed info becomes available like is happening with the 458 and the beowulf.

You've already tapped in to the reasoning for making THIS forum. The problem was there already are hundreds and hundreds of Armalite AR10 and AR180 {Howa/Armalite/etc} owners that it kind of needed a separate forum.

At this point there might not be 500 hundred total owners of ALL alternate calibers or makers or alternate calibered weapons.

This is likely the INTERIM solution to getting new forums....

Well to be honest, It doesn't bother me at all seeing all the variants in here.
Just though I'd throw out a title.
Some of these calibers I really didn't even know existed or hadn't heard of.

Really, I'm happy with it the way it is.

That sounds so gay!

How about BIG TOYS THAT GO BOOM! or BOOMERS



You will have to excuse me, kind of bored today.

Since we are dealing with anything from 17 Remington, 19 Calhoun, 204 Ruger, through 6x45, 7 BR, 7.62 x 39, 338 Spectre (shameless plug) up to 458, 499 and .500 ...

And "alternative" sounds like it was a second choice (because we couldn't get the other, the venerable .223, or something like that)

How about Non-223 AR-15s ?
