I been thinking about the Remington in 204,,I wish someone I knew had one so I could shoot one before buying something a manufactor has just started making...


Bushmaster makes the Remington version. Personally I'd go with the less expensive of the two since they are made by Bushmaster. Remington, IMO, will add a couple hundred to the final price.

Check out the CMMG Bargain bin... many of the gun forums I follow have many threads about them....

Search Google for "cmmg bargain bin" you'll find it.

You have no idea how true this is. There were literally dozens of "manufacturers" at the SHOT show and those were only the tip of the iceberg.

When any market gets flooded with brands that are all equal in technolgy price will make the choice. I think I am going with Double Star.

All are about the same. You'll pay more for the Colts, and a little less than average for double star/ bushmaster. I would recommend Rock River Arms or DPMS. Either way, make sure all parts you add on are mil-spec, so that you'll be able to interchange. Also, you'll want to add some picatinny rails to the barrel so that you can add all the extras on later. I finished my first last week (Rock River Arms, 5.56mm). Now I'm starting a new AR15 project in 9MM.

One of the best way to get the good stuff for cheap is to look at midwayusa.com and monitor the stuff you want to buy (if you plan on assembling it yourself). Midwayusa.com runs very good specials on all their parts from time to time.

By the way, if you want the cadillac of parts for your add ons, go with LaRue Tactical. Of course, you probably arent worrying about add ons yet... but you will once you get a base rifle.
