How many of you own and shoot AR's?. I'm seriously considering getting selling my AR's, mags and ammo and switching over to a Fulton Armory M1 Garand.

Any opinions?

Well thats good, if that what you want to do, Fulton puts out some good stuff..

BUT go the CMP route, and have the best of both worlds........

Sold one of my ARs to get a CMP Garand. No regrets here. My $.02

Thanks for the replies. I'm a little leary about the CMP rifles as there are no guarantees. What have your experiences been in dealing with them? Are the rifles safe to fire without having a gunsmith check them out?

Sell all but one of the lowers to fund the purchase. If you have different uppers, use those with the one lower and your not losing anything. My .02

Save your spare change in a jar. Seriously, it adds up!!!

I think you should keep atleast one AR.

Or 5 gallon water jug!

Seriously, I looked into it a little further and the loss I would incur to make the swutch combined with the additional $$$ kind of puts a damper on it. I kind of like the idea of the CMP rifle.

I recently went the CMP route for my first Garand and are quite pleased, it is easily the best $520.95 I have ever spent...I also was concerned about quality, don't be, there are differant grades of guns to choose from...I was advised by fellow members of Battlerifles.com for my first to go with a USGI Service Grade, and let me tell you, that thing is a shooter !!! Good Luck with whatever you decide...
- Hate to see you get rid of an AR, in the true spirit of this site you really should have both !!!

I was thinking of going the .308 route, but after shooting it and having a friend of mine who shoots high power look it over, and approve, I'm just going to shoot it and leave it alone ...
