Off Season Lets Talk Guns

Been a while since we had a guns n' ammo discussion.


Some of you are AR shooters Im sure. Im looking at a Colt 6920. Will be my first AR. Picked up a Glock this fall and really enjoy shooting it. Any feedback on that weapon?



Anyone else been in a buy/sell/trade mood with hardware?

Wow. Is that how much a rifle costs? I thought I would have to spend like $400 at most.

The sps is the cheap version of the 700 line. You can buy other rifles for less, but I don't like suggesting something that I'm not 100% comfortable reccomending. You can beat the quoted price "here" pretty easily, but I imagine your local sources aren't as "cheap gun friendly" as in the midwest.



The scope will be junk, the action fairly lose, the trigger a little harsh, and it's a larger caliber so each round will cost more, but this is bargain basement pricing.

We could use a few more details:

How much $ are you willing to spend on this bolt action rifle?
New or used?
Scope or iron sights, or both?
Buying local or online?
Cost of ammo a major factor?

Add the Savage Model 11 in .223 to your list then. It should fall into your range and isn't a bad rifle. My 6 year old niece just took her first deer with one a few days ago.

I would suggest you go to his store and get them in your hands, though. Everyone is built a little different and you can normally tell which one feels more "natural" in your hands and on your shoulder, even when it's your first rifle.

Well I don't want to go hunting with it, just target practice. Looking for something I can do by myself that is fun to do. The only range nearby is indoor so I think there might be a caliber limit.

I'll go check things out in person before I buy.

Buck, since you are in Cali I have no idea what/how to recommend.


You can get build an AR-15 that will shoot just as good as any bolt for around 500 and it will be a LOT more capable, but the laws out there make you get a bullet button lower.

I just finished a 16" Bull that shoots 2-3" groups at 500 yards for under $500.

16" DPMS Moly Bull Barrel $125
Tube handguard $35
Gas tube $10
Blem Upper + Parts $60
Blem Lower $50
A2 Buttstock Kit $60
Lower Parts Kit $40
Bolt Carrier Group $69
Charge Handle $20


DPMS Bull barrels are amazing.



Bolt actions are cool, but I have yet to have a bolt action fan shoot a good AR and not be seriously impressed.

Not the best price price I've seen, but the best price out there right now. 22LR 7 cents a pop. If you have a Cabala's, decent deal with the free shipping to the store.
