    Not as sexy as js's carbine...

    ..but I like it just fine. Picked it up today from the original owner, and it's just like when it left the gunshop in 1992. An unfired Colt Sporter Match HBAR, A2 upper and lower, heavy barrel, 1-in-7 twist. I haven't decided if I'm going to shoot it, or just keep it. Probably shoot it.

    Good looking rifle. Never met a gun I wouldn't shoot. Unless I felt it was unsafe.

    Shoot it. ARs are just too much fun to leave in the safe.

    I like it more than js's. I'm a fan of the '16A2 type. I just hate the HBARs. They balance horribly. Been trying to replace my HBAR with a gov't profile. I'll be ordering it really soon.
    I also really dislike Colts. I'd sell it if I were you and buy something better. Something without those pins and receiver block.

    I think it looks great! Also, it has the 1:7 twist which will allow for a heavier bullet if I'm not mistaken.... Let us know how it shoots.

    Now you just need this nice little addition and you'll be all set...
