You're moving the goalposts. The statement I was responding to wsa "you cant "upgrade" or accessorize the Ruger quite as easily as an AR. " You're trying to change the subject to overlook one of the biggest design flaws of the AR, the inability to take a folding stock.
Well my point was that anyone hand pick one or two features to make one rifle look better than the other.
By "moving the goalpost" I was making a point. I wasn't trying to argue
,I was just pointing out that anyone can make it look like one rifle is better than the other.
And as for folding stocks. Why would you want one on an AR when the telescoping stocks are generaly more solid.
Like I said chosing between the Mini 14 and the AR15 is more about what you want to do with the rifle.
