Default Prepping for new assault weapons ban.

Ok, now that the election is over I am firmly dedicated to the purchase of a new rifle.

Can I get some suggestions ?

Criteria:

.308 or 556
$2500.00 or preferably less.
Gas or piston driven. Intermediate barrel length. Accurate out to 500 yds or less with optics. I realize that's subjective.

Proven reliability.

I would worry more about the ammo than the gun atm. Over 3 million rounds have sold since midnight.

I can't throw the ammo at someone with bare hands.

I've got plenty ammo for my current weapons. 9,45,40, 22 and my nephew and son both have 308. 2500 + rounds per caliber. Except the 308.

So, back to rifle choices.

I picked up a SIG716 (7.62/.308). Build quality looks very good. First trip to the range this Saturday. FYI feeding a 7.62 these days is not cheap. Under $.70/ea is a decent price for brass cased ammo.

We have 2 rifle caliber Saigas converted and ready to rock. One in .308 and one in 223. I can post pics if you want to check them out. We also have a 7.62 on the way that we can do custom just for you.

Let me know.

Your standard AR 15 is a great gun for 10 feet to 500 yards. 223 is cheeper & lighter then 308 but won't punch thru much. An Bushmaster ACR is also a great platform & if you want something trick check out FN S2000 bullpup.

Heard something on the radio today. Take it with a grain of salt since it was the Alex Jones show and he is a conspiracy theorist. But they said that it may not be just an assault weapon ban but a semi auto ban and it may be illegal to own one. Not just future sales but illegal to own one. This is going to get interesting.
