I had a Colt A2 and swapped it for an Olympic A3. Can't see any diff externally (except the sights of course). Going to get it out and shoot it some as I've upgraded the scope and acquired some Hornady SST ammo. I know someone who might want to bust a bambi with it.

I like my Bushmaster 7.62x39, but it doesn't have feed ramps, if that's important to you.

cproducts mags have treated me well.
I'm right about the metric system 3/4 of the time.

I have a Model 1 upper in 762X39. I use it for hogs. I am very happy with it.

Had a Oly arms upper for awhile. It was great with the ASC mags. It had the M4 feed ramps and shot well. Problem was, I have several thousand rds of surplus(corrosive) ammo. Cleaning the gas tube and chamber on the AR was a major pain! Had to get it really clean to prevent rust. Sold it and switched back to an chrome barrel AK platform.The AR in 7.62x39 is a good combo.(use good ammo!)
