    What's your favorite 5.56/223 rifle?

    Excluding any ar15/m16 type weapon, what's your favorite 5.56/223 rifle and why? Mine would have to be a Sig 552 just because they are so sexy.

    Out ran one head to head side by side with my Acog and Mforgery. At a 3 gun Match 2 years ago this August.
    It was operator error an lack of training.
    He dropped the bolt hold twice before he reloaded, causing him to have to charge the rifle like a ak, and he wouldn't let his mags hit the ground he reached up and pulled them out.
    Also he kept his mags in his back pocket not in a mag pouch.

    OH and he had a POS bushnell red dot that broke during the match.

    Kramer knows the whole story....

    Like how he went out and bought a mossy 500 after I out ran him and his benelli semi something another.

    It's not the gear but the training.

    For me I know it's not listed but it's the Mforgery with either irons or ACOG.

    If I had to pick a 2nd it'd be the FNC with irons.

    If we're making picks for rifles not on the list or made of unobtainium...
    I'll go with the Cadillac Gage Stoner 61A with the commando beltfeed module. Oh yea!

    having owned almost everything on that list. I'm going with the Tavor just due to it's human friendly features.


    2nd would be a Beretta AR70

    I guess i could have added more to the list but I didn't want it to be too long, just chose some of the more popular and readily available. I almost chose the mini-14 since that was my first rifle when I was 11. I'm surprised though, I thought there would be more Galil fans

    In the non-M16A1-5.56/.223-rifle category my favorite:

    HK G33 or HK 53! Yeah it's dated, but the platform works so well.

    ARs take up a lot of room in my safe, aside from FS2000 that I am very happy with I would go with the Aug second, love the bullpup design, it's come a long way and the Aug was ahead of it's time to begin with.

    If I were forced to pick one, I would say my select fire Galil. My LWRC SPR is probably second, it is one damn fine rifle.

    1) Galil; I seem to always grab my Golani when I'm out
    2) Mini 14 with Bullpup stock; it was the 1st rifle I built, and shot, after my last major surgery
    3) AUG (never owned one) set up for AR Mags; just looks super sexy
    4) M96 Expeditionary Rifle (never owned one) because I can't afford a Stoner!
