Hello Everyone! Happy New Year!
Well it looks like I'll be hitting the runway in Fairbanks with about 400lbs of my life in tow behind me on or about the first week in February!!! Right near my B-day on the 2nd! Well as soon as I land I'm heading to get my official Alaska license, and soon after buying a weapon. I have been looking around, and I guess Walmart out there started selling Bushmaster, but I've been told that they look cheap and that they have gone to hell. I am kind of settled on a company that in fact is based out of here in Connecticut, called Stag Arms. I especially like the fact that they take us backwards left handers into consideration and give us our own special rifle! Hot brass in your face in the middle of a firefight got kind of old. Connecticut is really tight with their laws when it comes to AR-15's, so I wanted to wait until I got to a gun friendly state before ordering. I was thinking along the lines of this. They will also do what they call a plus package for an extra $100, which would bring the total without tax to $1020. The plus package is listed below:
4150 barrel steel chrome lined
1/7 Twist rifling
M4 feed ramps
Individually MP & HP tested and marked Bolt & Barrel
M-16 Bolt Carrier
Heavy (H) buffer assembly
One extra 30rd USGI Magazine (two total)*
I value your advice and constructive criticism, so let me know what you think and what you might or might not change. Thank you for your time!
