Or am I an asshat? I post an ad in EE, and captain correction police decides to argue a technicality in my listing.....<<SIGH>> I guess I'll have to wait for this one to drop off and list it again.

He was correcting your misuse of nomenclature. Nothing to worry about, really. You fixed it, no harm done. Such is life.

Wait until you get busted by the price patrol!


M4 handguards are oval in shape (AKA the fat kind that you really wanted) and the real ones (from Colt) have double heat shields.

If it makes you feel any better, he misspelled "carbine.'


Those look like carbone handguards to me, never heard of Skinny M4 handguards.

Because its better than being an asshole?

EVERYBODY knows gun types are just ignorant, redneck, morons with no teefs, bad attitudes and no brains. So, it only stands to reason that we would engage in meanness and stupidity at all levels! Sheesh...If we can't fight with the libs, we can fight with each other!

I'm just curious....M4 profile barrel, collapsible stock, flat top upper...........shoots .223/5.56....If I swap out the hand guards between skinny and fat......it changes the nomenclature?

You forgot the difference between A1, A2, A3 and A4. Hmm what does an M4gery with carbine handguards become? Is it an M4 carbine? Or is it still just an M4? Who really cares?



ETA: Hmmm, is Mac an asshat? Oh wait, that wasn't the question. Ah...never mind, I mean, no. Er, yes...oh yeah, Assholes are like opinions. Yeah, that's it!!!!!
