Which one of these rifles would you like to own, if any?

A couple look interesting enough, but most are too ARish...........for my tastes.

    Not  one choice I'd go out of my way to acquire in that selection Chief.

    I like the Ruger .22 Target Lite somewhat and the 9mm carbine like TennMikes. BTW like an idiot I held it at the last shoot, but got so distracted with everything else going on, I didn't fire it.

    I didn't know Franchi made rifles, just shotguns.

    Some of you guys have the Skilz to put together you own variation of many of them and many have already.

    I like my Ruger 9mm carbine. Fun to shoot and ammo doesn't break the piggy bank.
    As for the rest of those, some cost as much as a mag fed bolt action .50BMG rifle, so...........................nope. Nothing I see that I really like, as configured.

    Still want the Ruger PC carbine. Other than that, the only one that is interesting is the Brownells AR-10 variant. AR style is the norm now sadly for those of use that prefer blue steel and nice wood.

    Won't allow foreign IPs to open the link :'(

    From what you guys mention, I'd like an AR in closest configuration to a .223 GI M-4 'cause I like military rifles with historical background; those platforms are SCARCE here, and pretty expensive too (Above $ 3,000!)

    Liked the older PC-9 9mm. carbine over this new model.
    Not a fan of the stock style of the 10/22 Target Lite; if I was going to get another 10/22 (Got a TD model 'cause it was almost new over half of its usual local price and I wanted any one) would be a full stock version.

    Pretty much this. I'm more of a pistolero, a rifle needs to have some beauty - and preferably some history for me to notice it. I'm sure they're all capable rifles, but my skirt stays on for these...

    The Ruger PC Carbine.  Otherwise, none of the above.

    Like to own?  All of them!

    Go out of my way to buy?  Maybe the Ruger PC Carbine.

    I imagine some of them are capable of suburb accuracy, but dang I'd have to drape them with a Poncho before I got too intimate with one................

    Put one over your head too there, Chief - in case the one falls off the gun!

    I would own that Brownells BRN-10A, but never at that price.
  • NNNN Senior Member Posts: 24,715 Senior Member
    none of them

    A couple of the 6.5 Creedmoor bolt guns sparked a MINOR attraction.

    Nothing I'd go out of my way for though

    Meh...The Keltec RDB looked interesting but 223 made it a non starter.

    Any of the big-bore .45 caliber ARs would be good to have, in case a wayward triceratops wanders into my backyard, corners my little doggie, and starts munching my topsy-turvy tomato plants. But I would never pay the idiotic prices they're asking for any of them.

    Forget the whole lot of them  -right now, RKGuns has brand new Marlin 1895 Guide Guns for $469.98.

    The RIA .22tcm rifle might be fun to play with. Savage 110 Tactical might be in my future but it would have to replace something else as I need to stop adding to that side of the herd.

    NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNOPE.

    I still want to get Uberti and Pedersoli  working on a series of replica products for the sport of "World Wars Action Shooting".  Would take a repro of an early SMLE MKIII or P14/M1917 over any of that.

    Don't actually want any of them, the Kimber maybe if chambered right.
    Could though, be persuaded to accept a gift  on anything chambered in 300 Norma,

    The KelTec RBD Survival, not the same as the C with the scope, yeah, I would love to try that one out, a really interesting take on a light handy back packing rifle as a bullpup - the base rifle is very sleek and packable, with flip up sights. Too expensive and like most KelTec products, vaporware for the next ten years. Other than that, I know next to nothing about ARs and wouldn't know where to begin of which one is better than anything else. Too bad the CZ BREN 2 isn't coming in yet...
    What the hell is this "chassis rifle" thing? They look quite weird.

    Didn't see anything that turned my crank here. The AR types were more expensive than I want to pay for one. I want an AR in 5.56 Nato but knowing that a nice one can be had for $500-$700 and seeing everything on here was was much higher, I'll wait til my tax return comes back. I can get a very nice one for around $700.

    Still want the Ruger or build an AR9. Other than that nothing strikes my fancy. Some of them are butt ugly.
  • snake284snake284 Senior Member Posts: 22,394 Senior Member
    I want a 5.56 AR, but not at those prices. I'm not a hard core AR guy but I would love to have just one and in 5.56. I can get a very nice one from my LGS for around $700 ish.
