Now, if I take an M-1 Garand or M-14 and convert them both to .223/5.56. Does it now make them assault rifles instead of battle rifles? I'm confused. spock

Whether or not the AR-15 meets someone's definition of a battle rifle is irrelevant -- it works.
Well no.Originally posted by Gargoyle:
I would feel safer having the standard, mechanical, A2 rear sight elevation disk and FSP. Those Aimpoint sights would be ok for SWAT and CQB, but I wouldn't want them out patrolling in the bush. That piece of plastic with it's battery operated sight would go out when Murphy struck. Then you don't have a sight at all.
