    Piston FTW! Much better system IMO.

    I've found some AK kits that RJF put together that are rather tempting since they're ready to ship and priced well, but I think that KMP-MkII is just plain sexy.

    6 months, you can get a rifle quicker than you can get a shirt from RJF!
    I wouldn't recommend sex, drugs or insanity for everyone, but they've always worked for me.

    I was wondering why the piston rifle was so much more expensive...then I saw that magical word..."monolithic". IF I were to ever go back to AR15s (and that's a BIG if), it'd have to be a monolithic upper with piston. That is a nice looking rifle.

    There are quite a few piston rifles out there, and the prices aren't that bad now. IF they overprice their product, I doubt they'll sell many. Hell, a Ruger SR556 can be had new for around $1300 now...that's a hell of a rifle for pennies...relatively speaking.

    $1,285 for a converted .308 Saiga. It better suck my $#@! and make me breakfast!

    That M4 is pretty on point with its price at least. I still say that if they had a rifle available I'd drive down, I might even call them to see if the wait is actually that long. Prob is...

    They can be had for MUCH cheaper than that. I had a local in my area offer me one for around $600. I don't shoot .308 anymore so I turned it down.

    You can buy and convert one for a hell of a lot cheaper.

    Yep. I've got no desire to mess with it right now---I MAY pick up a converted Saiga 12 with part of my tax refund, but I doubt it. They just don't appeal to me that much anymore...and that's a HELL of a lot of money to spend on a $#@! shotgun, just to get it to work the way it's supposed to.
