Here is the question for all you multi AR ownwers.

Out of all the different AR's you own do you have 1 that you like to shoot the best or more than the others?

the reason I ask this is that when ever I go to grab just one to bring to the range it seems that I always grab my Armalite 20" M15A2 first.
It's a great shooter, never a problem.

the others are DPMS's a 16" and a 20 A3 and one of the prairie dog guns the 24"

yep I always grab by M-4 for most general shooting and teaching that I do.

Yep, I've got 3. A preban 16" A3 with all the CQB goodies, a basic preban gov't 20" A2 with a Redi-mag, and a tricked out 24" A3. The standard A2 goes out more than everything else. Just something wonderful about a simple basic 20" iron sight set up. [sniper]

Yep. I always pull out my RRA M4gery with LE entry stock and single point sling.

Yep, my pre-ban M4 & pre-ban XM177E2 go to the range everytime I go while the post-bans rotate trips [:D]

ive got 4, all pretty much sit in the safe except for the 16" bushy postban.........it goes everywhere with me. bet i dont have 500 rounds through the other 3 combined!

Ditto on the XM177E2. Have a clone built on an SP1, that I had changed over about 25 years ago. If we ever had to have just one long gun, that's the one I'd keep[:D]

Out of all the AR's and extra uppers I have, I just can't keep my hands off any of the one's with the 16" barrels. I just built a 16" for a bang around rifle. Don't want to bang up my Pre-Ban's now do I. MM419

A Bushmaster Super-Light, with a RDIAS. I need to put a heavier, shorter barrel on it, but I bought it before I had the auto sear.

the one with iron sights..[:D]

Depends what I'm doing. With my M4gery's, I have an "inside" gun, and an "outside" gun.[:)]

I shoot my flattop with EoTech way more than my standard A2...

Are you kidding? Every time I go to the range I end up spending at least half an hour standing in front of the safe trying to decide which one to take.

Colt preban 20" setup with 22lr convertion kit for back yard. post ban cmt lower w/16" upper for range work. Colt has BSA red dot and CMT has a 4*20 scope.

I only have one AR.Its a SP1 carbine.I don't take it to the range near enough.I do have 13 or so uppers for my M16.It all most aways has a M4 upper on it.If not that its a 10.5" upper or a SPR upper that I got from MSTN.When I want to play with a 9mm most of the time it a KAC 9MMSD upper.And when I really want to dump lead its the LMG upper with 2 Beta mags and 2 90 round drums.The latest upper is a 300 Whisper.Oh I forgot,if I have to shoot cheap its the 22SD upper.Reading this I dont think this has helped you any.That is what I like about the AR/M16 the best,its versitility.But if I had to pick one it would be the M4.SJR556.

I have 5 and pretty much take them all except the Bushy Varminter when I take ARs to the range. They all go in "assault" type cases so I can carry the 4 of them in one hand and the ammo can full of loaded mags in the other. The varminter goes in a hard case so I can't do that. That being said I would have to say that my preban PWA is my favorite followed by the standard A2 RRA 20"

My M15A4 with Bushnell Legend scope sees the most range time. I haven't even broken in my RRA Varminter yet. Shortly, though. Just don't care for shoot one clean one for the first ten. And the Barnes CR-10 stinks.

SP1 of course

My kit rifle tricked out is by far my most acurate rifle, yet I am drawn to my M4 by some mysterious force. Tj

I've got two of 'em right now. I have a Bushy 20" A3 with a Weaver Grand Slam and a Bush River or a Rockmaster (whichever you choose to call it) 16" A3 with an Aimpoint ML2. I enjoy shooting the 20" a lot because it is more accurate than the 16". I take it to the 200 yd range and shoot with scope as well as irons. I find the 16" w/Aimpoint is marginal past 150 yds, but it is deadly @ 100 yds in, what it is intended for anyway. Shabo

Great !!! We need to incorporate this terminology. My suggestion is the upper should have the first name for obvious reasons. BushRiver = BM upper with RR lower. Rockmaster = RR upper with BM lower. New slang for us Arfcommers !!!! [50]

If that's the case, I usually grab my RockEagle! M4gery

My KMC SR-15 M4 is #1 with me!

Interesting... Out of my ARs I like the 20-inch A2 HBAR setup most... Then again, I do most of my shooting off the bench, prone, or standing trying to maintain some of my skill for CMP matches.... I like shooting the M4... but it's the full sized rifle that does it best for me... I find it interesting that a majority of guys prefer to shoot their lighter set-ups...

My Colt R6550k AR15A2 Govt Model is my standard go to gun and sees more use than any other gun I own. However, I'm looking to rebarrel my R6601 HBAR Sporter with a Govt barrel to use more and give the R6550 a breather.

Well, that's better than the old "Bushamster" (if anyone remembers that from the old AR15.com site). BTW, I usually grab my A2 HBAR (Bushmaster). FITTER
