Arming The Poors Is Critical, Embrace M16

Someone should be making these as cheap as safely possible.

-Accurate

-Simple

-Lowest Maintenance AR

-Makes cheap 55 grain powerful with proper barrel length

-Barrel length is not bad for home defense, biggest US urban fighting of the century so far, Fallujah, was a decisive win of house-to-house cramped CQB and it was almost exclusively done with M16A4's.

Poor people have second amendment rights too.

Most people getting guns aren't autists or /k/ommandos. They don't need a fancy set up with a nice dot and a PEQ.

They need cheap gun go boom.

      They could make an M16 even cheaper.

      To make it more cost efficient, just make the irons A1 instead of A2 style, and delete forward assist.

            Yeah, Pre M855 the M16 and its derivatives had a 1/12 inch. The early rifles were 1/14. A2s came with 1/7

          Nah, more like a C7. The A2 style barrel twist rate allows 55 grain still but also heavier grains. A1 profile is too limited for the modern 5.56 ammo market.

          The A1 handguard is too weak, as well as a1 stock reportedly

          you're probably looking at it the wrong way. sure, a2 has more adjustability via windage but that's not necessarily a good thing because the drawback is that it's easier to get knocked out since it's less protected and there are more dials/parts. a1 is simplified. simplified ar is peak. they had it right from the start.

            Literally a non-issue. The dials are hard to get knocked out and its no Issue with the rifles that came before it. The M1 and M14 had just the same amount of knobs and there was no issue with them. Thats why you make marks to know what position it should be in. This whole "Its way to complicated" shit is moronic. Makes sense for a low IQ population that never held a gun in their life but America had no issue during WW2 and Korea. The A2 sights are far better in every way and if you find the A2 sights "complicated" then you shouldn't be holding a gun.

              look at an a2 sight and how it's designed. now tell me that it's completely drop safe. the section where the sight is is completely separate from the rest of the carry handle. a1 is completely protected by the carry handle which is monolithic. it's simply engineering, argue all you want on which is more drop safe..tell me why you would need the added elevation anyways...especially nowadays with optics.

    the whole "20inch is too long for room clearing" was created entirely by civilian larpers. the ar is moronicly small to start with. I remember the first time I ever held one in person I was shocked that it looked tiny compared to how it looks in videos. the only thing that is actually a legitimate argument is barrel profile. front heaviness is inferior. it's funny how everything has come full-circle with ars. high optic risers, slim barrels, softer shooting gas systems... all of this is a direct result of moronic civilian fudds over the years trying to mimic whatever the military(who is known for making stupid decisions) is doing to their rifles. m16a1 was literally peak minimalism-performance. I'm glad I never wanted to larp as a specops with a 10lb 10.5" ar. shit is fricking moronic any way you slice it.

    any argument you make for this would be made better for a basic m4gery instead. you even acknowledge yourself the actual real life use case for every civilian owned personal defense AR in the us, home defense, so 20" is pointless when an alternative is readily available. civilians are not the marine corps, they do not have to budget and organize replacing their entire stock of infantry rifles during an invasion. And like it or not, le booger loo is not happening and no one is going to be fighting long distance on an afghanistan mountain with their personally owned rifles so any "drawback" to a shorter barrel length is nonexistent meanwhile maneuverability in their own homes WHICH YOU FRICKING KNOW IS THE USE CASE is dramatically improved

    I've actually always been strongly of the opinion that if you wanted a militia that's prepared for an actual boogaloo as opposed to a glorified gun club, you need at least two things.

    1. A requirement that every member own and train regularly with a basic b***h M16A2 or M4 clone, in addition to whatever fancier weaponry they might possess. The idea being that everyone will have at least one type of weapon with universal familiarity and commonality of parts.

    2. You need a surplus stockpile of M16A2/M4 clones that can be issued in a pinch as a replacement for weapons that are damaged, lost, or destroyed, or be given to new members who may join after said boogaloo starts but they may not necessarily be adequately armed (i.e. a nogunz). Even if you're having them do something as basic as sentry duty, that extra rifle means they can at least stand a fighting chance on their own against an intruder.

    I figure that if you're gonna have a paramilitary organization, you still need to put emphasis on the MILITARY aspect of it in terms of streamlined service and supply.

    Poors who manage to have no weapons are the least deserving of weapons because they chose to be poor through their refusal to fix themselves, their vile self-pity, and their blaming their failure at life on everyone else then again chose to ignore self-defense to buy crack or booze or both. Piss on them.

    If they're poor for medical reasons they're useless in combat.
    If they're poor for mental reasons they're worse than useless.
    If they're neither poor for medical or mental illness reasons they're too fricking stupid to fix their lives therefore too fricking stupid to be useful in war.

    OP is proposing Project 100,000 for civilians. OP is utterly moronic. People who aren't garbage aren't poor. Most poors are poor by their own choices. The non-shit poors I know (legit medical disability like horrific injuries) paid for their weapons and even managed to own their own homes.

    Even those with enough ambition to show up for workforce training are frequently moronic or felons (same thing so their future is fricked). After teaching that lot I determined their only use was padding courses so non-frickups with ambition could take them.

    We don't need this, we need cheap or free outdoor ranges where tens of millions of people can go shoot once a week in whatever way they want, flat range, long range, concrete _/ shaped close quarters. There are no fricking good ranges within 100 miles of me. I'll get with the local bros and pick up brass and repair targets for free for the rest of my life if there was a cheap place to shoot 500y

      that's not an awful idea anon.10 ach in quadrants for different type of shooting. maybe like 10$ a year to cover tax on the land and the structures. maybe even collect the brass to reload for cheep freedom seeds?

    Just get a pawn shop shotgun if your a poor Black person or white trash, But really you should be getting a better job and improving yourself. If you can't afford $2,000 to get properly kitted out, you need to hit the bricks and get a better job.

      “People” (we use the term loosely when talking about /arg/ types) shit on 20s incessantly but there’s always a market for them with the PSA freedom/FN barrel model, the H&R line, and half a dozen decent models in the $800-$1100 range from other companies for the simple fact they’re very pleasant shooters with precise irons. Any discussion about ballistic minmaxing and range comes secondary to that fact because for most people their ARs are toys

        Isn't 20" best for 55 grain anyway? Really seems like a win win to me, I dont care what snobby gays have to say.

          55gr out of a 20” barrel is goated yes but people will argue muh 77gr out of an 11.5 and muh optimal doorkicking length without stopping to ask if they’ll ever need to clear rooms or if they have a gym membership to go with the gun

        In the real world millions of 20" barrels work fine and their owners have zero reason to shorten them.

        Larpers pretend shit that doesn't matter somehow matters, then don't do PT or train....

    >16 inches is too long!
    >Meanwhile, the Steyr ACR had a 21" barrel and was still 2" shorter overall than an M4, and there's not really any reason why they couldn't have made it another 2" shorter than that
    When will people realize that it's not the barrel that's the problem, it's the platform?

      20 and 16 are annoyingly long for CQB/Mechanized soldiering but are fine for everything else.

        Nobody seems to talk about this in depth but yes a 20" is very annoying to lift up off the floor of an armored humvee (god forbid bradley/lav/stryker) without banging it on the roof. Unwedging your rifle from weird crevices, or just sitting next to someone with your rifle laying across your chest and your muzzle slapping them or other equipment sucks. If you have to get out of that vehicle in a hurry there are a thousand places a 20" barrel can knock on/snag/trip you up. Collapsible stock helps too.

        I think you can trace the spread of 14.5s for regular ground troops directly to the proliferation of armored humvees and later mraps.

        20s shoot soft, run reliably and properly gassed and have a controllable full auto RoF if that becomes important. You're getting every last fps the cartridge was designed for and you're way less likely to be outranged by an opposing force. Think about what length of rifle your enemies are using and remember that you have probably 250-350fps on them at the same distance and 100-200y more usable range to keep them away from you. It's a sensible choice.

    A2 polymers and rifle twist with A1 ergos and sights. Possibly try and implement the Dangnal Dungfeces A1.5 rear sight style mounting with slots for an optic for luxury sake. Shit out rifles in vast quantity, hand them out in the streets. If you wanna go full Fallout Homo, just pull a BCA side charger upper and try and make it even cheaper with said previous features.

      Also ergos as in pistol grip and rifle stock length, A1 handguard can go frick itself in a manufacturing and logistic standpoint. Right triangle frick nugget.

    This probably isn't the thread for it, but I'd like to ask anyway.
    Is there a list of parts to build an A4 clone from GWOT? I mean the long barrel, the carry handle on the side, the sling, all that.
    I've never built a gun, and I've touched an AR platform once.

      FN makes a pretty close A4 rifle, just needs a carry handle and its G2G. OOW also used to have A4 uppers for sale, but those are now and again so don't hurt to check.

      Having been issued several A4s I can tell you the FN model is nearly exact, however, I was never issued one with an ambi safety. Never saw a carry handle outside of the first week of boot camp either. If you are not using a TA31 it's not an A4 as they were NEVER issued with carry handles, never been seen with carry handles aside from phase one usmc boot camp

      A4 is a serious money sink because you need the $300 rail, rail covers, $900 acog, Matech/KAC 600m rear buis. A2/A1 or some inspired build with a nitrided 20" barrel would be far cheaper.

      Slings would be either fireforce gear (??) black three point sling(pre 2014), 2 point green loop sling (annual rifle qual) or blue force gear usmc coyote sling (post 2014)
