I don’t think Ralphie has to worry much about shooting his own eye out with that one – unless he’s shooting a tank at close range.
Is the Colt significantly better than the S&W M&P? I see the S&W advertised on CDNN for about $500 to $550 (I think for the direct impingement versions – not sure what the Colt models are for the most part). Also I’ve looked at a few of the 7.62×39 AR-15 “style” platforms online, but they seem to have problems with the mag / loading mechanisms based on the reviews. Do you know if any of the AR manufacturers are working on making the 7.62 reliable (and affordable) on the AR-15 type platforms?

No wonder Ralph Peters called Obama a pussy.
He’s wuz able to figure out the Øbamboozler a loooong time ago!
Cheaper ARs of any brand are basicly good “assault” rifles and will deal with any doomsday scenario. The more expensive ones usually have match grade triggers and barrels and upgradeable attachments out the ying yang. That’s about it.

Actually I know someone that has it perfected. Us. We have a Super Bolt that doesn’t break and we have cured the feeding issues. I think we are the only guys. There’s been some new entries on the market by much larger manufacturers but they’re having issues. I talked to CProducts the other day and they told me that their 10 round 7.62 by 39 AR mags are their fast selling mag. Good indication of where the markets going.
My favorite caliber in the gun.
Super! Neat-O!, Cool!
Now where’s my Ovaltine and the decoder ring?
