    Oh my gosh! I had no idea?! I did not expect this at all! Truly, it was just an honor to be nominated! Oh, I have SO many people to thank, I don't want to forget anybody...

    **EDIT** I just read the other thread, and it seems BlackDog and Nightshift VA were the other two nominees for this "award." I feel very "honored?"

        It's not gonna work!

                Hey Tonkatoyzz- you keep asking, but you see how I have my rifles setup. What exactly are you asking?

                If you are curious how YOU should setup YOUR rifle, tell me what you do/plan to do with it. Tell me your operating parameters and I'll give you my best opinion.

                  lol. Sorry I browsed through the thread and I did not see where you said you chose a gas piston operated rifle. Where is that part at?

                    This is a buyer's guide to the AR-15 rifle, not for derivatives of the rifle. I kept the comparisons to Direct Impingement rifles only, to keep it "apples to apples."

                    The LWRC is mentioned in the thread, but not as an alternative to the DI rifles. In fact, I didn't mention the words "short-stroke piston" anywhere.

                        That is your patrol rifle? Sorry if I missed it while reading through the thread, but what rifle is that and much do all those add ons run? If you dont mind saying that is.

                          I will now go into my own personal pick, why I like it, and why I think you'll like it, too!

                          As you might have guessed, I will pick CMMG every time..[/b]
                          GREAT THREAD and thank you for putting it all together. I was also reading all the fall out at arfcom this weekend from your guide and I got a question.

                          I got a little turned off by all the negative CMMG comments and they seemed to be from experiences years ago. Comments regarding barrel quality, finish color, and stake jobs were all over the map. Accuracy speaks, so in spite of all the debates about steel certification and such, what would you rate the accuracy of your CMMG compared to the others you have experience with?

                          1MOA? 2 MOA? Improved Cylinder?

                          Also, I found some "in stock" Colt 6920's but am on the fence about a Colt Carbine vs a CMMG Midlength...

                            FWIW,

                            I spoke with a rep at Rock River Arms and they will have a lightweight profile, midlength barell available mid February after the SHOT show

                              Here are the pictures of the bolt that was shipped with my Bushmaster Patrolman's Carbine. It was purchased in July, 2007.

                              It appears you are correct. The firing pin is fully shrouded.



                              The gas key, however, still needs some improvement on the staking.

                                I've been thinking about the staking on the gas keys and you know the 'Proper way' looks good and neat, but I'd just about bet that those that are not 'properly staked' would still hold. Grab your favorite hex wrench and put it to the test. I think it will either round off or snap before you budge that hex screw.
