First AR? Mine was a Bushmaster AK Shorty. Did you modify it in any way? I didn`t change mine at all, cause I`m waiting to see what happens with the AWB. What was your reason for buying your first AR? I bought mine out of disgust with the gun grabbers in this country, only to find out that this is a really kick ass firearm. And then the bug bit me and I`m on my way to my 5th AR, a Colt MT6400c.

Colt MT6700, stock the way it should be. I bought my first one because it was always in the back of my mind, and though it may be crazy/not justifiable to spend a grand on a rifle. But I did, and theres no chance of having just 2 of them.... such a sick trend....

Mine was a Colt 6520 Gov't Carbine. It was brought to my town from another city, and the second time I got to see it at the gunshow - I let it go the first time. It was the first AR I had ever got to handle, and no one else I knew had one. I didn't let it go the second time. It had the 1:12 barrel. Later, I became an FFL and then a C3 dealer and purchased an M16. They were both stock for a long time until just a couple of years ago I started spending time on this board then all hell broke loose. I bought two more and built one, customized everything and went to credit card hell - ARF gave me the forbidden knowledge and MSTN showed me the way.

SP1. The AR-15/M-16 rifle has always been my rifle of choice and the gun "love of my life". I always loved the carbine and finally feel vindicated by the fact that the military is finally seeing, in the M4, what I knew since the middle 80s'. If they would have introduced those M4's 10 years earlier... Damn that would have been great!

SP1... I think I only paid $300 or so for her NIB in 1980

bushmaster 16in a2 i really liked it but gave it to my brother as a gift. giving it away was the event in my life that got me addicted in building them. i built an identical one after giving it to him. i still want it back to some extent because it was my first.

Bushmaster 20" A2, I got it this past summer and couldn't be happier. I've only gotten to go shoot it 4 or 5 times, but it has lived up to my every expectation and then some. Up next...I'm planning on getting a flat top carbine this summer. Sweeeet!! [:D] OlBoy

Same AR, same year but I think I paid more. (I was living in Augusta, Ga., at the time.) 5sub

My first two ARs were a matched pair of Colt 6601 HBARs purchased new in 1991. I paid $1300 for the pair. Back then I felt that the best "spare parts kit" was a second identical weapon. For that reason I always bought a pair of everything-identical ARs, identical Sigs, identical Benelli shotguns etc.

RRA 20" Varminter, back in April. Still my only. Got a Simmons 44mag 6.5-20x scope with it that I still use. .25 moa capable. Love it very much. Not one malfunction in over 2k rounds. Saving for a new scope and a magpul if the awb sunsets.

Colt sp1 I bought it in 1986 for $550 they gave me a $300 trade in on my Mini14 for it. and what was really strange it still had tringle hanguards. FREE

Colt SP1 in 1989. I still regret not buying one in 1988 instead of a Ruger Mini-14. That is when I learned that you never take your wife with you when you go shopping for guns. Damn salesman! "We have Stainless Steel Ruger Mini-14's on sale this week for $240." [banghead]

I bought a used SP1 Colt for $250 around the late 70s early 80s. I never shot it. I went the next day to a gun store that had a brand new SP1 with the Colt guard nickle finish and traded it even for the new gun. The dealer had had it and could not sell it because of the finish. He was happy to trade. I still have that gun today. It is my favorite AR.

M16A1, Plt 159, Parris Island, SC. I was in the second series to be issued the M16 in bootcamp, instead of the M14 in 1974. I didn't buy my own until 1993 and that was a preban Colt H-Bar.

Do you remember if it had a forward assist or was slab-side? Might have been one of the first model M16s.

M16A1 issued by Uncle Sugar. [:D]

SP-1 in Coltguard in 1984. Also got a set of round handguards, a collapsible stock, a bunch of mags, scopemount, etc. They say I overpaid for it, 550 bucks.
