Re: First AR/Hunting Gun
I picked up a Mossberg MMR recently in the budget price range. My first AR. I have mostly AKs.
Ive been impressed with the reliability. I'm used to shooting AKs, and will not own a weapon incapable of cycling poor quality ammo just as well as the expensive stuff. I've put bunches of steel case 55gr rounds thru it without any failures. Very pleased so far. Been using a combination of the factory mag, USGI mags, and Pmags. Comes with free floated hand guards too...if that matters to you.
I have not heard much about the Mossberg ARs prior to buying one, but I was willing to pay the price and give it a shot. So far so good.
