Found Its Way Into Your Safe

05 April 2016 - 08:42 AM

Thought I'd start a running thread where folks can post their latest acquisitions; gun you've been lusting after for awhile, impulse buy, or special purpose need... pics are encouraged, stock photos or your own pics, especially if you've done mods or builds.

Personally, I typically like utility and versatility in my choices, so the guns I buy usually have more than 1 purpose or satisfy more than a single goal.

I already had an AK-platform rifle, but always wanted an AR-platform. First, though, .223/5.56x45 didn't really appeal to me much because I don't have much use for the caliber. But an AR-platform in .308/7.62x51 offered more possibilities in my particular situation; so that's what I set out to get.

2 things I didn't like about the bigger AR's was the much greater physical size and prohibitive weight; but many companies were starting to get into building .308 AR's to meet recently increased demand, and in the process making strides to cut down on the size and weight.

Then DPMS came out with their GII models that significantly cut down on both, almost down to AR-15 dimensions; so after doing a lot of homework and checking out a lot of written and video reviews, I snapped up a DPMS GII in January... 34.25" collapsed and only 7.25 lbs..

Obviously, one of the advantages of the AR is its ability to be modified; but I'm kind of a sucker for the classic look, so I haven't changed anything aside from adding a red/green dot sight and a recoil pad.
