    DPMS... it's pretty nice. But I never use it, and despite the fears about a gun-grabbing president and all, I'm not really worried that I'll miss it and never be able to get one again or some such.

    So what's WMD's opinion as to how to get the most out of this thing? I figure if I'm going to sell it, I want to either sell it to someone I know and trust, or get as much money out of it as I can. (For a friend, I'd sell it well under market value... I'd rape a stranger for every dime I could.)

    TIA WMD.

    EDIT: This is also a covert "for sale" thread, kinda.

    Sit on it little longer. You'll be able to get more for it around tax time. Or if you really want as much as you can get, wait until the next AWB ban passes.

    I may buy the upper. You can ass-rape someone else on the lower.

    What kind of use did you expect to get from an assault rifle?

    Did you get your username because that's how everyone always responds to you?

    Assault is a behavior, not an attribute of a weapon.

    Fuckin' a, those STANAG mounts are heinous. You should take it off and sell me that Aimpoint for aesthetics' sake, Sterling. :mamoru:

    What did you expect in the gun forum? Assault rifle is a phrase that is generally used derogatorily by antis and the media. The consensus of the firearm community is that an assault rifle is automatic, as would be expected for guns that should follow the Sturmgewehr. I wouldn't call your ar15 an assault rifle. Most of the media would because it has a shoulder thing that goes up.

    No happy switch, not an assault rifle.

    the term assault rifle was around way before the media and antis started hacking it to pieces, we all know the ar15/ak47 are assault rifles, every gun enthusiasts knows that....every gun magazine/websites/catalogs calls them that

    peoples only started saying "oh its not an assault rifle because it has never assaulted me, my jailbait daughter, or my neighbors dog blah blah blah bullshit" and denying the fact that they are assault weapons is an attempt to counter-argue with the media/antis.....which is fine....no problemo....because if theyre gonna try to use literal translations to attack the "assault weapons" then we can counter-argue with the same strategy

    but common, we are all gun enthusiasts here...at least most of us are...dont talk to me like im the media and tell me the literal translation of the term "assault" and telling me that calling the ar15/ak47, assault weapons, are wrong :uh:

    of course there are the more technical specifications that make an assault weapon an assault weapon like the happy switch and the likes....but just by taking an engine out of a car does not make it...not a car...it would make it a car that does not run.....an ar15 is an assault rifle that does not have full auto capability

    leave the literal translation/technical specs crap in the court room man

    If you remove one of the main defining criteria from the gun, I would no longer say it fits that criteria. Maybe you'll call a race car with an engine from a dodge omni in it a race car...I wouldn't.

    AR-15s are not assault rifles. Neither is any other semi-auto firearm. An assault rifle is defined as a full auto or select fire rifle.

    "Assault weapon" is a completely moronic term invented by Josh Sugarman of the Violence Policy Center that applies to everything from semi-auto shotguns to pistols that have magazines outside of the grip.
