I really must say inburritos dissy really has me wanting a Dissy.
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 8:26:46 PM EDT
The Lumpy approved dissy is SWEET!
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 8:30:06 PM EDT
Lumpy approved one with an aftermarket grip?


I always knew he was a grip sapien.
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 8:31:34 PM EDT
Inburrito's dissy with Smithy's Skulls would be my vote
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 8:35:41 PM EDT
That dissy is the shit...as far as looks. But does it really have a 20" gas system? I just don't see the point of a dissy unless it does. I like, don't get me wrong, but I think the G2 w/Z32 could be improved as well.

Besides my crtisisms...very nice rifle.

The skull rig is sweet! Never have I seen anything like that on a rifle before!
Link Posted: 9/8/2005 2:18:15 AM EDT
I'm gonna have to go for Yojimbo's redundancy rifle...that thing is just too funny.

Not sure if this is allowed in this thread, but I'll explain.

I actually view a 20" gas system on a 14.5/16" barrel to be a liability. The most important part of the Dissipator for me is the fact that more of the barrel is covered. After running a couple of mags through the barrel can get rather hot, and I hate dropping it down on the sling while wearing shorts and getting burned. That's also the reason I used a 14.5" barrel, so that less was poking out of the end.

The rest of the parts/pieces just came from a desire to try out some of the more talked about gear and see what I liked. I also built this counterpoint with completely different parts just to see what works for me.

I like the Dissy's increased sight radius. The Lumpy approved Dissy gets my vote out of these, although they are all nice!

Seems like I'm the first, but I've gotta go with Getdowns M4A3. It has everything you need and nothing you don't. The epidemy of KISS.

I realy like the skull paint job, but I have to go with the M4A3.

Great rifles!!!

Keep the votes coming guys. Furthur descriptions and pics of the nominated rifles are both allowed and welcomed.
Link Posted: 9/8/2005 10:39:17 AM EDT
i gotta say that is one sweet dissy
Link Posted: 9/8/2005 1:07:10 PM EDT
Well I was hoping QUIB's carbine would make the cut but I guess not so I went with Getdown's. Nice, simple and effective.
Link Posted: 9/8/2005 1:56:16 PM EDT
Smithys skull carbine is the shiznit.

That's why I nominated it. Agree that it's one helluva group of rifles, but may favorite appears to be the most simple.

I had a tough time deciding between lumpys and the skull.

Lumpy won.

Nice guys. Already 185 votes and the skull rifle is getting some good competition. I was afraid it was going to be a run away from the nomination thread.
Link Posted: 9/9/2005 9:15:54 AM EDT
The skull rig fo' sho'!!!

You obviously missed THIS! classic thread - from whence I nominated the rifle and dubbed it thus.

Now if we could paint some skulls on inburrito's dissy, I wouldnt have paused for even a second


Still voted for IBs gun, despite Smithy's cool points for presentation.
Link Posted: 9/9/2005 12:25:25 PM EDT
I'm a huge Dissy' fan, but the Larue and Magpul gear, plus the grey accents, I can't help but vote for IB's very nice Dissy'.
Link Posted: 9/9/2005 12:40:06 PM EDT
Wow. I didn't know my rifle was even nominated; yet I submitted my ideas for the rules for this thread last week. Thank you for nominating my KISS rifle.

One thing I found interesting is how of the three rifles with MagPuls, all of them are oriented the same way (opposite of how they come packaged). Cool. I find they work better that way, though I only bought a few of them to try. Adding the cord to the bottom of my magazines works just as well and is dirt cheap.
Link Posted: 9/9/2005 1:21:58 PM EDT
Although GetDown's M4 is almost exactly what I am going to do to mine, I have to vote for inburrito's Dissy! Suh-Weeeet! Yet another reason to vaccinate against the BRD!
Link Posted: 9/9/2005 3:52:48 PM EDT
The skull rigg took talent, not just $.
Link Posted: 9/9/2005 7:59:00 PM EDT
We got a great race here guys.
Link Posted: 9/10/2005 3:54:48 AM EDT
The lines between form vs. function and art vs. tool often get blurred in the world of firearms. The two that got my attention were the skull rifle and the M4A3 and both are beautiful examples of each division, art/form and tool/function. Final answer for me: M4A3.

Come on guys get your votes in. The voting will end at midnight or as close to it as possible. We have a heck of a battle between Smithy's rig and Inburrito's Dissy. Actually since I will not be able to call it at midnight tonight and since we still have a good amount of votes coming in I will let the voting go until midnight tommorrow. Then I will announce the winner.
Link Posted: 9/10/2005 4:15:39 PM EDT
The Skull rifle is just too original. It gets my vote, and I plan on paiting one of my AR's with a skull theme now (I'm a follower).
Link Posted: 9/11/2005 7:00:38 AM EDT
skull one is unique
Link Posted: 9/11/2005 8:11:13 AM EDT
It was a hard choice but I have to go with the inburrito’s dissy.

2ND pick is Smithy’s Skull rig is cool but I feel it is a bit out of category in my mind. More of a show piece than a usable weapon IMO. Smithy probably takes it out all the time. However if it belonged to me that would not be the case.

3RD pick is Getdowns M4A3 clean and simple and to the point.

4TH is Yojimbo’s redundancy rig. Pull the second Eo and it might have been a different outcome.
Link Posted: 9/11/2005 1:33:52 PM EDT
I'm pullin' for the dissy!
Link Posted: 9/11/2005 5:35:46 PM EDT
Wow, I go away for the weekend to a Randy Cain class and come back to find the voting has heated up. Looks like my gun is losing, but I appreciate all the votes from you guys.
Link Posted: 9/11/2005 5:59:28 PM EDT
I had to go with the Skull rig, followed close by the dissy.
Link Posted: 9/11/2005 7:35:49 PM EDT
Well I think I'm gonna call it now since I just got home from work and want to eat. Seems that Smithy took it with 155 votes to Inburritos 139. Close match. Congrats Smithy and Inburrito as well as Getdown and Yojimbo for having great rifles and thanks to all the arfcommers for making this a success. I will definately continue it in the months to come.
