    Thanks for the pointers, Ill deff check out WOA again when I am building a true long range build. However I really can't justify a truely high end set up, and would def prefer chrome lined, since for me atleast, right now I would like something easy to take care of.

    bleh, I dont know how to explain what I am looking for. I want just a regular A2 (not a match upper or anything) that is chrome lined and reliable.

    Oh, and it needs to be able to eat 5.56 NATO as well as .223, since as a poor college student I need to be able to shoot whatever (other than wolf) is the cheapest.

    because I have heard to many bad things about shooting Wolf in western rifle calibers (.308 and .223).

    I've run almost 700 rounds of .223 through a bushmaster m4a2 and a mini 14 with no problems. This is the new stuff however. Wolf also makes brass cased mil spec .223.

    negative, Im going to replace the stock birdcage with some kind of brake, pre-ban is perfectly ok.

    Thanks for the info about the new wolf, maybe it is worth it then :o

    I've heard good things about Rainier Arms, RB Precision, Del-Ton, Denny's (Global Tactical), Ammetec Arms, JT Distributing, Bravo Company

    I've never purchased from any of these places, but they seem to be held in high reguard over on ARFcom
