Question…

I have a question
of all of the AR-15 weapon system platform that are made in the world… who do YOU like the best and why?

I have shot a round or two through some ARs and and I know from what I have shot which I like but I want to hear from you! leave us a comment about the gun(s)

It doesn’t have to be an AR-15 it can just be a rifle designed like the AR. I know Remington makes an AR platform rifle and calls it: Auto loading Model R-15 (or R-25 for the .308 chambered rifle)

.50 BMG

So at first I planned on talking a bit about the Tactilite T2 – .50 BMG AR Upper but I got sidetracked like normal.  So I will show you a picture of what I had planned on talking about.

Cool looking bolt action upper with 5 round Mag. it was designed to take an AR-15 platform and give you a .50 BMG (or .416 Barrett, .338 Lapua,  .408 CheyTac) caliber rifle. The nice thing is you can have 1 gun and shoot many rounds in case god forbid ammo prices go back up.

They have what I think looks like a pretty awesome barrel on one of the guns they made.

Needless to say I like big cool guns. I think that is why most of us are here, right?
Just because I know you want more pictures I will post 3 more for you.


Well I guess I ended up talking more about it then I thought I was going to.

 

M110

I have been following the M110 Semi-Automatic Sniper System since it was in the trial stages.

CHAMBER: 7.62 NATO
RATE OF FIRE: Semi-Auto
VELOCITY: 2,571 fps (175 gr. M118LR) 784 meters p/ second
MAGAZINE TYPE / CAP.: Standard 10/20 Rounds
WEIGHT (w/o MAGAZINE): 16 lbs
LENGTH w/ STOCK RET.: 46 3/4″
LENGTH w/ STOCK EXT.: 47 1/4″
BARREL LENGTH: 20″

The M110 Semi-Automatic Sniper System is to replace the M24 Sniper rifle used by snipers in the United States Army.

M110 is based off the original AR-10 developed by Eugene Stoner and redesigned by the rifles manufacturer Knight’s Armament Company.

From what i have read and the comparison of M110 SASS vs. the Panther LRT-SASS is that the M110 has a higher accuracy level to the Panther.

Remington 700

I had the opportunity last year to fire a Rem 700 in a .243 Win caliber round.
I like I feel of the gun and properly oiled and maintained it is a very accurate rifle and with wide variety of calibers this gun is made for, you can find the right gun for you.

left to right .22-.223-.243-.308

This Rifle comes in 28 different calibers and is made for public, police and miliary (m24) use.    

Here is a chart on all the rounds this gun can fire.

The US Miliary just awarded a contract with Remington to build a new M24E1 A.K.A. XM2010 more info will come later.
But for now here is a taste of the new system!
