If I buy the SR Upper then I can have fun building a lower for it
Likewise, if I get the Saiga AK I get to convert it.

I hadn't been much interested in an AR in 5.56 until I took my grandson to a service rifle match last November. He wanted to go live on the range afterwards. I might buy a Compass Lake or Rock River to try to pass on to him part of what I know.

I've shot a few rifle courses with both CMP and Appleseed, shooting from 100-600 yards, using M1As and Garands. Loads of fun.
Whats even better is doing those types of courses up at CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park, a world class shooting range if there ever was.


That is where he'd really want to live, never change a target or walk to check scores ever again.

The match was a CMP/AMU event in Starke, FL with CMP's electronic scoring and their carbines. Spoiled him already, I'm afraid.

Get a Krebs custom AK forget the Saiga lol But if you go the AR route before buying the Douglas barrel look into T-Box barrels sold by Sgt of Arms in the wylde chambering. The type of accuracy they have had from their Grendels and 6mmX47 are unreal. I think they have a picture of a Grendel after 2500 rounds still shooting in the .2s or less. I just received one of their Grendel barrels in the mail so maybe in a week or two I will be testing the accuracy at 100, 300, and 500 yards.

Too late for this round, but Compass Lake is hard to beat performance wise, and they’re super nice local folks.
