I don't want to piss anyone off but I am just curious as to why some people are compelled to build and buy their rifles as close to mil spec as possible? Sure mil spec tolerances are great but why clone stuff like sopmod etc? Why spend so much on a KAC albeit they have amazing quality. Is it because they build rifles for government contract and charge an arm and limb just because they know their civilian consumers are addicted to being tactical douchebags that live as if they have actual been deployed and been fired upon? I guess its not just some gun owners, people do that generally,  like a 68 year old man driving a f1 pro charged ls7 c6 that never goes a hair over 40 mph. its just a gentleman's rant no pun intended.

Touching on the prices - IIRC, alot of companies prices are so high because that's what the government pays for them and they aren't allowed to sell them for any less on the civilian market.

Why the hell not?



Personally I like my rifles to be based on field-proven designs.       Rifles that get issued and stay in issue for a good length of time

have the right attributes:  Accuracy, reliability, functionality,  and a lack of bullshit accessories that don't earn their keep.



My three AR platforms are an M4gery,  an A2 (with a heavy National Match barrel, and it is a tack driver) and a Mk 12 Mod 1.

Short, medium, and long range platforms that shoot a variety of bullets from 45 to 80 grains and ranges up to 800 meters.





To me, it's the military inspired models that are sensible and everything else has to be proven as good,  though many will fail to make the cut.

Paying a little more for a quality gun is worth it if you're intending on using it in a training class and or high round training schedual.



I've seen more than a few shit quality cheap ARs shit the bed. That sucks when you travelled, took time off from work, paid tuition, bought ammo etc for a class.
 
Link Posted: 1/22/2014 7:15:40 PM EDT
And OP I own quality guns because they work always. Yes I've been in combat, yes I expect my purchased rifles to preform as well and better than my issued gun.



Currently I own Colt, Daniel Defense, Noveske( x2) and LWRC (x2) plus home builds out of BCM parts

why wouldn't I want "milspec"? Those parts are field proven and that's what I want for my rifle.  It doesn't make me a wannabe anything.

Thread smells like the ones where some new poster asks "How much ammo do you guys have???  Show me your stash!"  In this case it's "Why would anyone want a military style rifle???  Show me yours!"

Honestly, I don't think Op is that intelligent. I mean, come on; according to him if you buy a quality rifle you're a wannabe. OP is 'tarded and that's all
