Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

When did Remington come out with AR style rifles?

Oh and a AR(assmbled @ home or "thrown together" is the same as a one youd buy complete in a store, the guns are completely modular, it doesnt matter who assembled it. Its no difference than buying an 870 in parts an assembling it.
Right!? Go and try to sell it and find out. You are not going to get near what you think your gun is worth if its assembled with all different kinds of parts from different manufactors.

Not many times are you going to resell a firearm for what price you paid for it. They are good functioning AR style rifles and seem to be fairly accurate too. I'm sure it's not the custom AR that some have but it works well. And I'd also have to agree with Jeep you can put one together the way you want it for about the same price.

I paid about 700$ including the transfer fee and all the shipping. I coukd easily get 650$ or more for it and its got several hundred rounds through it. You think the average ham and egger knows the difference between a RRA and a DPMS? They shurly wont realize it has double star parts

Well, I guess the Remington AR's aren't that expensive.

That's nothing...we can only have two out of; pistol grip, semi-auto, detachable mag, collapsible stock...so no AR's unless it has a fixed mag...
What about the Bullet Button guns, or aren't those that easy to find, or have a rifle modified to have a bullet button?

Yep, bullet button works because it takes "time or tool" to take the mag out. I went with the Prince50 instead, just since if I take one little screw out it works the same as any other AR...

You can build a Varmiter Special cheaper, and it will be a Bushmaster. Here is the costs, Complete Bushmaster lower - $345 Complete Bushmaster Varmiter Special Upper with the 24" match grade stainless barrel - $785. For a total of $1130, you save a whole $235. Now you have shipping costs and have to have the lower sent to a licensed firearms dealer, and they are going to charge you something for that. If your time and effort is worth nothing and you dont mind waiting to get it, go for it. Myself I will pay a tad more and go to the gunstore and buy one off the rack.
True, I may take a hit on resale, but every custom/one off rifle is worth less usually...

But, us here in Cali can't just go down to the gunstore and buy a complete Bushy anyway. We can only have "off-list" guns, CMMG, Stag, etc... No Bushy, Colt, Oly, Les Baer, or any of the "name brands" are allowed.

So the only way to get one is to either buy one that someone else has put together with a "Prince50" or "bullet button", or just put one together myself...

Actually, resale might be higher since its already registered and legal in California...

This one looks like it would be good for prairie dogs or coyotes, but nothing bigger than that: http://www.gunshopfinder.com/remingt...-r15-60007.asp

Opinions?
Since your 3 yrs behind, i'll give you a heads up that next year Remington comes out with a 1911!
