Must. Resist. Another AR platform...

Post by 91Eunozs » Thu Jun 18, 2015 8:51 pm

So I get this email from Ranier Firearms tonight, pre-sale sale on their new PDW.

Looks pretty tasty...

Next purchase in July-ish when I get my first bonus check from my new job will be another Glock, likely a 30 or 30S, but then I was looking hard at a Tavor in FDE they have at my favorite LGS. Very $$ but very fun to finger bang in the shop...been resisting pretty well until I saw this.

Always wanted to build my own Honey Badger clone, and if the litigation currently making its way up to the Supreme Court re: Trusts being able to build Class-3 weapons (i.e. giggle switch) goes through I can build a true clone.

By the time I file another SBR stamp and get it all built up, it'd cost me as much as a Tavor but I've always liked this look.

If I lived in a free state, I totally would. And while the price may seem a bit on the high side, remember that a stock set like that usually sells for around $400 by itself. Alas, I live in California, and the only way we would get to run one like that is if it is over 30" long, and a host of other stupidity. So it just isn't worth it.

Call me an ignorant slut (if the shoe fits!) but...... I don't get it? Whats the advantage of this lower? I'm still an AR n00b so maybe there's something to this that I don't see?

I'm not getting the rainier arms lower either,... is it just some Carbon fiber sexiness? or ultralight? Doesn't look like its going get ultra-compact. For a project like that, I'd go with the Troy Ind thingy for less cash.

Oh, and Halfapint, you're an ignorant slut. (zing!) :clownshoes:
It stops being funny when it starts being you.

OK you ignorant slut!

It's all cf goodness and the stock slides on rails vs. a buffer tube. Makes it at least 20% cooler! :crazy:


Edit: OK, so maybe it's all :clownshoes: and shit, but I just like the way it looks. :lol:

Hey it looks awesome! I will give you that... I just thought there might be more that I wasn't seeing! I need to get a couple more budget AR's, a threaded bbl for my pistol, and a can; all before I look at getting something like this. Haha
