    Hello, I'm not sure if there is another post about assault rifles, but I'm looking into buying an AR-15. I've been looking online, but not really sure if one manufacture is better than the other. I'm looking to spend below $1K. Also just wondering if anyone has used an AR for deer hunting. Appreciate the info. Also if you can let me know where to buy. I've been to a few local gun shows and seen them for sale.

    A assualt rifle has selectable fire, 3 shot burst, full auto.

    the civilian versions that we can buy would be more suited to be called SR's (sport rifles) :D but are reffered to as military style assault rifles.

    An assault rifle is loosely defined as a selective fire rifle designed for combat

    Definitions
    A genuine assault weapon, as opposed to a legal definition, is a hand-held, selective fire weapon, which means it's capable of firing in either an automatic or a semiautomatic mode depending on the position of a selector switch. These kinds of weapons are heavily regulated by the National Firearms Act of 1934 and are further regulated in some states.

    Haha. I love it. I was just kidding. 99% of society believes that AR stands for Assault Rifle. I was just playing into that.

    I keep forgetting that sarcasm doesn’t show in the internets.

    I know plenty of folks that use an AR15 or an AR10 for deer hunting. Works great!

    ehh not really:confused: if your using a .223 you better make sure you have good shot placement.
    or you could go with the 6.8 or .308 upper for more knockdown:cool:

    agreed...but with my ar i can put a bullet through any point on the deer with ease at 100+ yards... that's an easy head shot right?

    i've never been hunting before so i can't say :p but i did intend my ar for medium to long distance shooting!

    thats a good looking gun man! and unless your shooting a doe, you dont want a head shot :cool:

    I dont think I would be comfortable going for a heart/lung shot on a mature buck with a 55gr bullet. Ill stick with my 7mm-08 with 140 gr bullets for that :D
    and save my AR for varmnits and zombies :infantry:

    Good luck and enjoyment picking out an AR. If you want to use it for deer hunting, I'd suggest you buy one chambered for a heavier round. .223 would be considered by most as insufficient for deer hunting and in many states it is even illegal to hunt big game with a .223. I'm pretty sure my state is .24 caliber or higher for big game.

    My military rifles are all .308. Just some foreign crap:;)
