I agree. That might actually spark an interesting discussion of opinions.
Two CAR-15’s, both with –
- front-carry horizontal slings,
- standard CAR-length handguards
- Advanced Armament quick-mount for suppressor
- only one has scope (Leupold compact)
- one has A1 sights, one has A2 (both are fixed carry-handle)
I very much like how they’re set up. I’ve considered tritium sights, but the Leupold gathers light so well, I can see better with it at night than I can with the naked eye. Which means better than the naked eye, even with tritium sights. Still, wouldn’t be a bad idea to have them, in case something happened to the scope.
Obviously, having a second, matched suppressor would be nice, but the QD mounts on both guns let it swap instantly between them. The .22 Ciener kit, I’ve babbled on about before, and like a lot. (It works fine in my older gun, but is unreliable [so far] in my new one. Jury’s still out on that…)
One’s a Bushmaster, bought at a local gunshop. The second is one I pieced together. Bought a lower at a show, and ordered a Model One kit to finish out.
A 3 upper, one 10" barrel, one 18" Match barrel, both canned. both fluted barrels, That right there is $3000 for the pair, with the cheapest can going and the $200 tax. optical sight for the 10", scopes for both, trigger jobs for both, luminous sights for both, ambi safety for both, .22 units for both. folding stock for the 10". free float tubes for both. really should have said $6000, but I was leaving out the can part, since not 1 guy in 100 will ever get one, or have the balls and ability to make his own.
