When I look around at the sites on the web and see AR's and weapons similar for sale, there is often the word "custom" in the subject line.

Is it just me, or has "custom" become a more fashionable word to replace "mutt"?

Most of these "custom" beasts out there are no more than pieced together POS that were made out of the scrap pile or the SPB (spare parts bin).

Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong out of wanting to make a buck off of spare parts, but there needs to be a more uniform name for these "custom" weapons out there.

Is it just me? Or do you guys agree?

That's like the car dealer using "Previously Owned" as opposed to "Used."

They are using the right word, but they're spelling it wrong. It should be "cussed'em".

"We beat on them and cussed'em until we got them to work about half the time...."

He said AR's, not SW5's!

I really like ones that say "rare"..most of the time they are just some old Mil. Surplus Upper someone has for sale..I don't know how many times I have seen "rare" on a Tapco M16 kit

I haven't seen "custom" used nearly as much as "tactical".
