The Para ARs

Uncle has the pics up.  I was with him when the pictures were taken, and I love the design.  I’d like to be able to shoot one, but the MSRP initially will be a bit steep for me.  If they can get it down to 1600, I might consider it.  This is a very interesting design.

    I really like those fingered pistol grips. Way cool.

    I gotta say, blah…

    I’m an AR fan. I own’em, use’em, work on’em, like shooting’em. I’ve trained with them a lot. I use one as one of my primary weapons. I just don’t really see the value here.

    Folding stocks just don’t do much for me, although I see why they do for some. But for utility a MODSTOCK, SOPMOD, CTR, or UBR seem better. They telescope, and your don’t have to worry about single sourcing the bolt system (MP? Staked properly?).

    I’m usually not given to drama or hyperbole, but why would anyone buy something like that over, say, a Noveske N4? The lowest model ZM is over $2,100. You can get the top end N4 (N4 Light Carbine, Low Profile, with VLTOR VIS Monolithic system, VLTOR Stock, TD grip, M249/double chrome barrel, auto carrier, h-buffer, etc) for that.

    I’m sticking with sproing…sproing…sproingsproingsproing for now.

    On the other hand, if you’ve got money to spare, you can’t have to many fun blasters.

    By the way, I think that grip is either an Ergo Suregrip or a Command Arms G27. Both are around 20 bones, and’ll fit any standard lower.
