It seems lately that more and more popularity is going to the Dissapators. (for the reason of longer hg's and sight radius + longer gas tube)


and the good old 20 inchers seem to be getting some respect back too.

Is the M4 wearing out its welcome?


Whats your call?



P.S. I know I left out the SP1 but I didn't have enough room, plus it is most like the A2.

I like the M4 the best...



but I'm planning on building a 24 inch sniper rifle next.

then mabe an SP1.

Most of what is turning up at the range and 3 gun matches are M4's. People with post ban Ar's are turning them into M4's.

I always thought the dissopators looked the coolest

I just have no use for 5.56 outside of 30meters.

YMMV

You never said what you have already. i think the 20 a2 is the best first AR to start with. then spread out from there

I only have an M4 right now, as far as AR's go.

None of the above, I prefer the 16" midlength. Prior to that I was firmly into the 20" A2 camp, just the 16 handles a bit nicer and I've found the Eotech (with a buis) is easier to hit with than A2 sights. The midlength also gives a longer sight radius and doesnt have the funny look of the dissy.

I didn't think that 24 inchers would rate so high!!

All depends why you need it....M4 is great for CQB and I have no problem making easy center mass shots out to 200 yards.

If you plan to shoot longer distances, or make a bench rifle...then go with a 24" varminter upper.

Want something durable that you can sling around in the woods, not worry about optics, and call your "all purpose ar" ?....then get either a 16 or a 20.


Of course, you could do the wise thing and just buy them all

M4. The point behind the 5.56mm cartridge is to have a small and light rifle for close distance work.

If you want to carry and large and heavy rifle, it might as well be in 30 caliber. That way you can reach out to 600+ yards.

problem being is that the 5.56mm cartridge is meant to be used out of a 20 inch barrel.

I vote A4 clone 20" with or without collapsing stock depending on taste.

good call, BTW the dissipator looks like ass.
Link Posted: 3/12/2005 6:21:36 AM EDT
Regular old 20" A2 is my fave.
Link Posted: 3/12/2005 11:14:30 AM EDT
On that list I chose the dissipator but if I had my druthers I would go with a commando.

BUt I like it for the ability to adda light under the barrel and still have a handguard to hold
Link Posted: 3/12/2005 11:21:29 AM EDT
Get them all
Link Posted: 3/12/2005 11:24:26 AM EDT
I understand the reasons for the dissapator, but I just dont like the way they look, I'd rather have a 16" mid length hand guard set up.

Everyone should have a 20" AR, (just like everyone should have a Garand)


Since you already have the 16" ballistics with your M4, get the 20" with a flattop (and detachable carry handle) - then you can always add an optic later.

I've shot them plenty of times to really get the feel of them. I respect them...

But I just bought a new house, Paying for a cruze, and college.

Rifles are a priority, but I want the SP1 for my 20 incher. So The A2 will have to wait.
