  1. Carbon Fiber Gun Parts

    General Gun Discussion
    I'm thinking of purchasing a Brigand arms carbon fiber handguard. I have a few questions for you all. Do you think carbon fiber parts are a gimmick? Would you buy a carbon fiber part such as a handguard for your AR15? Is there one part of the AR15 you believe should be Carbon Fiber?

  8. .223 Ammo vs 5.56 NATO

    Rifle Discussion
    So I'm pretty well versed on the 5.56 NATO ammunition I've been using in my M4 and I'm curious about the .223 cartridge.
