I can remember when it first went to gray pages, how slow the site used to be, etc.

It sure has come a very long way, but even way back then, it was the best firearms site around.

I should have not looked at the M16 Full Auto forum from 2000. RR M16s for $5900 .

Damn I wish I was up to speed on full auto guns back then...of course I was 18 at the time, but I am sure my Dad would have like to know about a good investment back then.
