  1. Anyoneone who brings the masses a mechanical tool is at some point going to turn out a lemon. The question is... "How does said company handle said lemons?". BCM handles it like a pro... matter of fact I was in the market for an upper... normally a DPMS man.... but Maybe it is time to check out BCM....
  2. I know Spikes makes a Piston gun, and I have been impressed with their quality from what I have seen/heard/read. http://www.spikestactical.com/z/
  3. Started out as an "AK Guy" and bought my screen namesake rifle in 2004. It is a rifle I no longer have however as it was used in trade for a non import marked, number matching, complete Kar98 k w/ Sling a couple years back. I then bought a Yugo M-70 and then an AMD-65 after I bought my Romy. A few years down the pipe and on a whim, I traded a Vector Uzi Carbine in on a NIB Bushmaster A1 "Commando", basically a CAR (XM177E2) Clone. Took it shooting and decided I liked it a lot (still do), but wanted another AR with a longer BBL (the Bushy I got for has the 11.5"/5.5" BBL), E. Stoner designed this gun with a 20" bbl to get the little bullet above the 3000 FPS mark so it would cause massive terminal damage when it hit something "squishy". On that note, and a scant two months after I got my Bushy, I bought a Spikes Tactical Lower on sale and decided to "Roll my own", so that I would get EXACTLY what I wanted. I ended up with this... Spikes Tactical Lower Rock River Lower Kit High Standard A2 Stock DPMS 20" H-bar Flattop Upper A scant few $$$ later... All the stuff up top plus... First Samco Quad rail Handgaurd (Plastic, the lightest I could find since it's already an H-bar) Hogue Grip Double Star Pictinny Gas Block MI SPLP BUIS McFarland Gas Ring Bravo Company Bolt Bravo Company SOPMOD bolt Upgrade Kit Pictinny mount Bipod IOR QR-TS 3X25 Scope IMHO rolling your own is the only way to fly when doing an AR, you save $$$$ AND you can get whatever config you think is perfect.
  4. I have a Bushmaster and a home brew that features mostly DPMS parts in the upper. Both have been perfect, but if you are going to get into AR's I suggest you look around at the options, pick the options you like, and ROLL YOUR OWN! LOL My first AR, A bushmaster A1 "Commando" (Bushy's XM177E2 look alike), I got it cause I wanted to try AR's (always was an AK man) and I am a sucker for Vietnam era style Weaponry... A cool AR, kinda Retro, light, easy to use sights... but very plain... very normal... My Homebrew (AKA my second AR), I built it after I shot my first one for awhile and after I researched the options. I wanted the full 20" to maximize the round I wanted it to be an H-bar cause I like the way it shoulders and points I wanted it to be balls on accurate so I got a DPMS BBL (and they did not disappoint) I wanted a Flattop so I could mount what I wanted (however I wanted) for optics I wanted a rail Gas Block for the same reason I wanted BUIS cause I do like shooting Irons once in awhile I wanted a Quad Forend so I could mount crap up there with ease (bipod, Flashlight, laser, whatever...) I like the way the A2 stock feels After shooting a lot of Wolf through my Bushy and breaking a couple extractors, I wanted a bolt that I felt I could shoot steel case ammo without fear of breaking anything (BCM Bolt and SOPMOD Upgrade kit, also did not disappoint) And I ended up with this... And I could not be happier. It really is my favorite gun to shoot, plus I feel a connection with it due to having built it from parts. Roll your own man, it is easy AND you get exactly what you want. Oh and the IOR QR-TS is an excellent scope.
  5. I used to smoke 2 packs a day, havn't touched 'em in about 8 years now and quit using the Commit Mints. They really do work man. Get back on the horse, don't give up...
  6. I agree with the OP, I hated Pred 2 and the AvP's, this movie was tits. A must See.
  7. We had alot of work after the last 3 administrations... at least. Neither party has shown me jack shat as far as being able to run this nation.
  8. Well, if the lapse in Police work happens, then people will simply have to make some tough decisions on how they protect their own communities. There will be lynchings. Our nation has a spending problem, and I feel that there will be violence before those who are making these mistakes understand the gravity of the situation. Socialism, in any form, does not work.
  9. He started it man, so it looks like some of you do "roll like that". I'm sorry, but you call me a hippy boulderite, you get both barrels, no matter how passive aggressive you try to frame it... Sorry recon013, but your retort was type of retorts I am used to seeing on DU. And those piss me off faster then anything. BUt maybe I jumped the gun a bit there... Nevertheless, the post I made included the verbage of the actual law. It would do any Colorado gun owner well to actually read it and not make assumptions that could land you in the mess the poor old timer is in. I just find it hard to believe how many law abiding Americans (Many who are possibly Christians?) here support the death penalty for petty theft... It's kinda bizzar to be honest. Guess I draw the line where I am willing to respond with deadly force only when me or mine feel threatened...
  10. +1. We are either a society of laws, or we aren't.
  11. ^ Fixed it for you Let me help you out "recon013", so your illiterate ass does not end up in the same situation as this poor son of a b****. QUOTE (18-1-704.5 Use of deadly physical force against an intruder.Statute text) (1) The general assembly hereby recognizes that the citizens of Colorado have a right to expect absolute safety within their own homes. (2) Notwithstanding the provisions of section 18-1-704, any occupant of a dwelling is justified in using any degree of physical force, including deadly physical force, against another person when that other person has made an unlawful entry into the dwelling, and when the occupant has a reasonable belief that such other person has committed a crime in the dwelling in addition to the uninvited entry, or is committing or intends to commit a crime against a person or property in addition to the uninvited entry, and when the occupant reasonably believes that such other person might use any physical force, no matter how slight, against any occupant. (3) Any occupant of a dwelling using physical force, including deadly physical force, in accordance with the provisions of subsection (2) of this section shall be immune from criminal prosecution for the use of such force. (4) Any occupant of a dwelling using physical force, including deadly physical force, in accordance with the provisions of subsection (2) of this section shall be immune from any civil liability for injuries or death resulting from the use of such force. ^ The Law So, there it is, the law. Notice how the words "within their own homes" "dwelling" and "Uninvited Entry" appear in the text. Not "on your property", or "if they are beaners, it's cool". Once again, you either know the law, or you become a victim of it. This isn't liberal talking, this is reality talking. I did not create this law, but I intend to follow it so I don't have to spend my 30's fending off ass rape in Prison. These Mexicans broke the law by stealing a trailer, and by sneaking in here. They deserve to do the time for their crime, with the maximum sentence, upon completion of said sentence, they should be deported. But the shooter also broke the law, and he too deserves to be punished. As far as this old timer getting the book thrown at him, I don't agree with that. But for fuzzs sake, have you people been sleeping at the freaking wheel? The left will find anything to vilify we gun owners. So it should not surprise you that this guy is going to get the book thrown at him. This, to me at least, means we need to be playing it cleaner then everyone else. Let this serve as a lesson to you all, KNOW THE ACTUAL LAW, not the one you assume is the law, BUT THE ACTUAL LAW.
  12. No I didn't, he ran outside to stop them though, harms way did not come to him, he put himself in it. And this is how the law is going to view it... He made a choice to confront them, instead of simply sitting inside and letting the police handle it. Also the shots were fired as hit attackers were leaving the scene of the crime.. and no longer posed a threat... I feel for this guy, I really do; but if you are going to have guns, if you are going to USE guns, you better know the law, or this will be you.
  13. It is in accordance with the letter of the law though. In Colorado you have no obligation to flee an attack, and can stand your ground using deadly force in the face of the possibility of imminent danger to you or those within your home or about your persons. Stealing a trailer is "None of the above". I'm sorry but "filthy law breaking illegal" or no, this was not a case where deadly force was warranted. He should have simply called the police and filed a claim with his insurance company. Now if the trailer was insured, he gets a big fat check for it after the fact, and buys a nice new trailer. If it isn't insured, then I stress that the trailer could not have been all that important to him, certainly not important enough to kill a man over. I am as red blooded as the next man, but barring someone I deem a threat to my family or self, I have no desire to use deadly force against anyone. Someone driving off with my trailer certainly does not qualify for me personally, and is neither in the word nor spirit of the law. I am not going to lie, there is a part of me that hopes this guy gets off light, because the same legal system that is going to prosecute this man, is the same one the REFUSES to do anything about the illegal alien problem we are having, and it is the same legal system that tries to fuzz the people of Denver out of the Federal and State rights by imposing absurd gun bans. Nevertheless, this man was in no danger, and the use of deadly force wasn't warranted.
