It's bad when an ak parts kit, barrel and receiver cost more than a half decent ar15.I've seen AR variants on offer for a tad over $400.
IIRC my parts built one ran just over $900 a few years back but it's rather more than run of the mill.
And all those handy m16/m4 drawings were "accidentally " released to industry.Colt had a former Marine officer as CEO who then proceeded to load up the company with former officers as managers. Officers may be great leaders in combat but not so much as Managers of a for profit business
Add to that Colt lost M16/M4 contracts in 1988, 2013, 2018 and lost the TDP for the M16/M4

I think it should be “as American as apple pie AND CHEESE”.What makes you think that apple pie is American? The first recorded recipe for apple pie was written in England in 1381, I never quite understood how Americans think something is "as American as Apple Pie"
Only in San Francisco.I'd have thought Spotted Dick would be rather more the quintessential Americanism .
See now you don't even know how to eat it properly you peasant. Custard is is the proper accompaniment for apple pie. Apple pie is about as American as Redshift.
When you lived in a whole bunch of different countries and people at IMMI (OZ) examining everything in your past since 16 from police certificates to FBI statements, things I guess takes a bit of time and gets delayed - not on my plate. Still, enjoying the last of my Indian summer here in London.Shouldn’t you be in Australia by now?
Indian summer?
