    It's only e-cat if the grip is "military pattern". There was a recent court ruling that provided a legal base for this.

    Trademe is so full of expert commentators that know nothing. Do they have any idea how stupid they look?

    It will be - ours were 100% A-Cat and lasted only 1 hour.

    one word of advice to all whom are prospective/pondering/thinking of a AR....... Buy one,they are the nicest things to fire, no recoil,soft,amazing handling characteristics... when you buy an AR your not just buying ONE rifle and without sounding too overly American Tacticalish here but your buying a weapon system capable of switching calibres with 2 push pins and in a multitude of usefull calibres suitable for any purpose!

    I'd love one. But, to me a Long range rifle seems like it would get more use. an ar would be a safe/range queen.

    I don't understand this train of thought that seems to propagate about AR's. People seem to give off the idea that if you take your AR into the bush and get it wet and dirty it will fall to pieces. Mine get rolled bowled and arse-holed and they are fine. I pretty much don't maintain them at all, except for running a few patches down the bore now and then. They can be set up for LR with the right components. I'm planning on developing two loads for my Rock River carbine. A cheapish, generic hunting load for when it's wearing the Redfield 3-9 and a high BC load for reaching out further, when I decide what optic I want to use for that. Sorry if I misunderstood your post.
