I have about $1600 in these 3 together.

The AR's are both Model 1 kits, one on a RRA lower, the other on a DPMS. The finish is nicer on the DPMS but the upper to lower fit is tighter with the RRA.

Just got 500 rounds of 7.62x51 in so I hope to make a trip to the range this weekend to try out the FAL.

Dante, if the black stays on the rifle when you pick it up it qualifies, if it comes off on you it just needs cleaning. :D

Aha... M17(?) is that an M-16 plus one mistake! For our Brit friends, the Lotus 45 (? many years ago) F1 car was said to be a Lotus 42 plus three mistakes.

I have'nt had much experience with automatics sense ' 69 ( I put ~K's rounds through my M-16 and different 60 machine-guns [both bi-pod and tripod suported]), but I did shoot my SKS last month and that was fun. I'll like to find a few more, but most are illeagel in PRK. My Chinese SKS is devoid of a bayonet and granade launcher; All SKS's with a bayonet are verboten as well, unless they are converted Yugo 52/66's!

My buddy has a full M2 .50 in it's tripod. Stupid PRK rules will allow only one round at a time to be loaded into the gun. :evil: he encouraged me to get my C&R license... I'll git him for that! :lol: :lol:

With an M2 and a scope all you need is one round at a time.

mine is a DPMS , factory is about a mile from my office at the local range , felt a bit of loyalty and am much impressed with finish/function/fit , picked up an SA M1A as well and am still warming to the fit but love the function and am pleased with the finish , now to put a scope on it , ive looked at a nice leupold as i was told switching out my trigicon ACOG was not a good idea - was hoping to fit the AR with the EOTECH i picked up , ill probably use it as an excuse to buy another

started as bolt only , the DPMS impressed me so much i now have a 16" with the EOTECH i mentioned to go with the 20" that has the ACOG , im still missing the scope for my SA M1A but im working on it , did trade for a nice chinese SKS w/bayo-no launcher , think im hooked on these , id hoped to just have the M1rifle and M1carbine in semis but they grow on you

the SA M1A/M14 type was my first , i had wanted it for some time and when the time came round i invested , as to the 556s i had not thought of having one since my first experience with a colt back in the very early 1970s , but with the DPMS factory at my local range i kept seeing them , they grew on me and i felt this compulsion to own the local product , ive seen enough info to know there are many out there and some are ranked above these in the inner circles of users but i must say ive not been disapointed at all , the chinese SKS came from a friend[even his photo] i couldnt pass it up

anyway - shooting a kimber 45 , my DPMS AP4 , and a Winchester 1300 with 10 round tube , my son has a berretta 92 9mm , my old DPMS AP4 , and the remington 870 with 8 round tube [his Chritmass present]

I still have my Chinese GEW Commission rifle, and the wood is still black ( I won't let Sen. Finestein see it!). I build an AR-15 Kalifionia legal rifle, but I bought the upper from DEL-TON, with a 20 inch barrel and a 10 round magazine. It has a 'Bullet Button' that keeps the Mag a part of the rifle. I need a tool to remove the mag, but a 5.56 bullet will do in a pinch. I assembled the lower that has the serial number, and that has to by perched through a 01FFL and the DORS procedure.
I bought three more AR-15 lowers, but only found one lower parts kit and two stocks. I'll wait for the prices to stabilize, and build the upper half myself. I've made friends with a Marine armor, and we'll thrash it out together lol.
