All these rifles want to do when they grow up is to be a.....................Colt.

Unfortunately, as the time pass by, they looks more and more like Colt, and Colt AR15 MT (or what the hell Colt call its rifles) look less and less like Colt...

Colt?
A Colt's just  an  Armalite  copy!

An  Oly  is  more  accurate
A  Bushy  is  more reliable
A  Hesse  is  cheaper  and  about  the  same  quality.


go  tell this  BS someone  who  DOES  NOT  know  more  than  you.

What was the Colt AR15 before it was a Colt?  Hmmm, let see.  Oh yeah, it was an Armalite!

I think sopmodm and Larry G have valid points. Many a vendor (even ones that pushed Colt) told me that the BUshy would be more reliable and the OLY to be slightly more accurate. I'll personally attest to OlY's being a touch more accurate. Colt is more popular because they recieved the mil contract. (which goes to the lowest bidder most times I may add).  Just enjoy whatever you have.

My Oly lower with a JT upper out shoots every Colt I have ever handled.

Maybe some of us simple western PA guys aren't competitive shooters, but at last weekend's hi-power, a bone-stock 6530 - lightweight 16", got 508/600, placing it 6th of 43 shooters. Field included spaceguns, etc.

They're all good, especially the top units from ArmaLite, Bushmaster, Oly, etc.

Beats reading about caliber wars.

A guy is trying to sell an Armalite M15A4. flattop, 16", for $700.00. Is that a good deal?

At one time colt made a good gun, not anymore, just junk for those who just do not know any better! I own two EA ArmaLites shorties and have only praise for them, fit, function, reliability, quality. I like OLY barrels for building tack drivers, then of course BM is great too! I have plenty of colt bolt carriers , replaced em with BM, and now use the colts as paper weights, and second as self defense (club)item in a pinch.

Please give more details. Is it NIB? Any extras? If it is new, it sounds like a pretty good deal. [:D] Milldude

Milldude,
It isn't NIB, but it isn't very old, and hasn't had too many rounds through it. I checked around with some guys that are familiar with the history of the gun, and they say that the price is a good deal, but I wanted some outside advice. In fact, with the Elcan that the guy had on it, it was a "tackdriver." He's moving to a DPMS, and said that he will throw in 4-hicap mags and some Hornady TAP ammo. It has the Armalite green furniture on it.

Recently my girlfriend bought an M15A4C for me. The price paid was $849.99. I did a little research on this and found that dealer direct bulk puchase for M15A4C is approximately $730. Something is wrong with this picture. BTW suggested retail is $900.

...and remember AR means Armalite.

How many AR's has Armalite produced?  This is a serious question, not a flame...is the prouction number larger than Colt's?

AR doesn't stand for Bushmaster?

Roberts, just a minor point, but; a comapny as large as Colt could afford to be the lowest bidder when they had alot of govt contracts b/c their production was high enough to enable the most affordable bid.  I doubt it had to do with the quality of their weapons that produced the attractive low price.

Sir, I am very happy that you or your wife

were fortunate enough to purchase what I con-

sider the best made AR series of rifles being

made at this time. It must have been dumb luck!

However, I must tell you that I am very unhappy

that you find something wrong with the price I

posted, $750.00.

Please post in detail how you found out that

the dealer cost is $730.00.
