instead of creating a new thread..i have a few more questions..
im having a hard time deciding on the 18 or 16 inch barrel.
18 inches should give you more range, but i don't think i would be able to fulfill the true accuracy of it. How far are typical engagements? i find it hard to imagine i would have to defend myself from anything greater than 300 yards ( it still amazes me being able to engage people at three football fields away..but i'm not good with yardage yet)
i really want to get my hands on both rifles to shoot them..i have put a few rounds through the 22" barrel and it honestly kicked my ass. it was my first time shooting a full powered rifle though.
i watched the run and gun on nutinfancys channel (yes i i know) and the 16 inch barrel looked like it had very manageable recoil.
reasons for wanting 16" barrel
-shorter overall length..around 37 compared to 40.3
(more compactness, easier handling and maneuverability)
-lighter wieght 8.1 compared to 9 pounds
(they are heavy rifles regardless with 20 round mags)
-tritium sight, compared to standard steel
(although they both do kick ass.)
-compensator versus a stabilizer.
(school me, i don't know anything about this)
-i want to eventually run an optic maybe an RDS but thats about it for any add ons to the rifle, so weight becomes a problem.
any answers would seriously help..thanks
