this colt is NJ legal, right?

also, it says capacity is 9 rounds... does that just mean it only comes with a 9rd mag and I can just buy 15rounders to pop in? I assume so, but who knows anymore.

I'd say yes, legal.

Looks like you can use other mags.

The lower is fine since it has a non retractable stock. The upper looks about right as well. Just make sure that's a brake on the end of the barrel and not a flash hider and you are good to go.

The link page states it has a comp. Which is good.

In true ARFCOM spirit, I say buy both. Get the Bushy now cause it's available and get the Colt later when it becomes available.

That was an easy decision.

haha... just got married last week. can't afford both (can't really afford either RIGHT now... but i'm gonna try soon).

I like RRA too because of the wylde chamber, I like the idea of being able to shoot both types of ammo. is that a standard thing or only an RRa thing?

Nope not really standard. I think White Oak Armament has the Wylde chamber too.

just to clarify something, as it sounds like you may be a tad confused here.

an AR15 chambered for 5.56mm NATO can shoot either 5.56mm NATO or .223 Remington cartridges.

an AR15 chambered for .223 Remington in theory should only shoot .223 Remington; the use of 5.56mm NATO with the shorter leade (the chamber throat area just in front of the bullet) of the .223 Remington chamber will increase pressure. i have not read of many catastrophic failures of shooting 5.56mm NATO in a .223 Remington chambered AR15, but that doesn't make it a good idea. note that it is definitely not advised to shoot 5.56mm NATO in an older bolt action rifle chambered for .223 Remington -- the barrel and bolt assembly may not react well to the increased chamber pressure and that could be detrimental to your fingers and eyes.

so why does the Wylde chamber exist? if the AR15 is chambered for 5.56mm NATO, it will accept either cartridge -- so why do we need the Wylde?

compared to the 5.56mm NATO chamber leade, the shorter leade of the .223 results in better accuracy. hence, the Wylde chamber sort of is an "average" of the 5.56mm NATO and .223 Remington leades. the Wylde chamber is an attempt, a reasonably successful one at that, to maintain the feed reliability of the 5.56mm NATO chamber and the accuracy of the .223 Remington chamber.

finally, note that 99% of Bushmaster AR15's use the 5.56mm NATO chamber. only a few Bushmaster barrel types designed for competition shooting use .223 Remington or modified Wylde type chambers.

I highly doubt it.

I own that one as well as several other colt and armalites.. Awesome rifle. Maybe it's just me but I think that comp makes the rifle louder. If your bolt and lug are lubed right and use good ammo you shouldn't jam ever.

Perfectly legal.

AR_Jedi, thanks for that added info. I was indeed confused as I thought only the wylde chamber was suitable for both. thanks to everyone else for the help for me - a noobie.
