    No one is that dumb... Surely...... So...

    This is a bit of a weird thread anyway.
    You are only limited by caliber and accuracy not the platform.
    If you have an accurate AR 600 easy on steel and rabbits.

    300 max on medium game with good shot placement.

    I would have to suggest the comment you quoted was made a bit "tongue in cheek" but funny as all hell just the same

    Now theres a coincidence, theres a thread here by @Ryan songhurst about getting the outside of his barrel rifled presumably in the opposite direction to the inside rifling. I guess that would make it shoot straighter at longer distances

    It would...but the talcum powder may settle in the outer rifling and obscure your scope vision on firing.

    @40mm

    An AR15 with all wooden furniture does look good - even better if the forewood was more like that of a wooden furnitured G3.

    Hi @res

    Prettier than plastic, huh? (-: I'd have thought the picture above would have ignited your lust after a wooded G3...

    BTW the AR15's sights are closed iron sights, peephole at the rear. A SMLE No I and an AK have open iron sights, notch at the rear.

    That is cool. Easy to do, just get your black plastic stocks/grips etc hydro-dipped in walnut pattern. I've done it with my browning black plastic stock. Looks mint.

    Josh, you may just have hit on the solution to the MSSA problem.

    the M16a2 barrel has a different twist to handle the SS109 62GN Nato ball rd which came in at the same time the steyr was intro"d to nz defence,
    the A2 was evaluated and recommended by nzSASat time .it also had the added advantage of us having existing parts sotcksand armourers familair with the platform .of course cousin aussie spoke so we went to the steyr.
    as far as im aware the std anto teast is for the rounbd to consistently penetrate an regulation helmet at 700m which it dod with older yank bloodbuckets.
    Myself -i wouldnt want to be playing wicketkeeper within a 1k rangecause i suspect at very least if it hits its gonna hurt.

    No, not less scary gun... that's not quite it.

    It would just be less low class.

    More upper crust, not something you put in the hands of working class conscripts. Yes, classy, gentlemanly, lah di dah, fine weather for a fox funt ol' boy kind of thing. You of course need to supplement the wood with jodhpurs, monocle and at least a tweed cap. You'll then definitely not fit the image of those undesirables, the low working class sport shooters about to turn mass killer (even worse, taking some of our game, fancy that!) any day now.

    I am of course jesting, but I tell you.....if the press sends a photographer down to the range, back home again the editor will not select pictures of wooden guns but will go for the pictures of the AR / black plastic guns!

    Unless of course there is one of a beautiful woman shooter, she can shoot anything and her picture will still get picked.
