    Mini 14 is a pretty fun gun to play with.

    I’ve always thought the Robinson Arms XCR was a cool rifle also.

    I have a few, but I agree. The Mini 14 is a very underrated little gun. I actually was looking at the XCR not long ago, but thought the Bren may fit the role a little better. Could always get both. Lol

    That's the best looking ARX I've seen in a while. The sbr looks way better than the rifle length. But I just can't get over how chunky they are. Lol. I've heard really good things about them tho.

    If you want something really different, H&K SL8. Then if you really want different, have one converted to a G36. H&K SL-8 (2).jpg

    That's one gun I've never shot before. Very cool! I've seen the Tommy Built T36 as well. Kind of in the same ballpark, but that price is kinda crazy. Especially when I can get a Bren 2 for $1k less.

    Now that's a gun I don't see often at all. Never shot one. Actually, I've never even held one. What did you like so much about it? How would you compare it to a Bren, Galil, or Scar?
