Let's just say hypothetically you couldn't get AR/AK etc.

What would you get in it's place?

I have shown pics of a 10-22 and SW MP15-22 to non gun friends. They always express shock when I tell them that both rifles have the exact same capabilities, semi auto 10 round etc. The MP just 'looks' more killy.

So what performs like an AR in either .223 or .308 but doesn't look like an AR?

Su16 B has been a solid performer if I wanted ar mags. Love my m1a though.

PTR. (Barely) under a grand, mag fed, 308, mags under $10. From what I understand made on the original tooling from Portugal. Still looks killy though if that matters.

Depends entirely on application. Hunting? Any bolt action in .223. Competition shooting? Tavor, AUG, Beretta AR160, HK 416, etc. Home defense? Shotgun.

The answer is clearly a phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range.

In place of an AR? SCAR-16, MCX, or Tavor. Depends on if you favor a more traditional trigger and manual of arms, or compactness. Oh, and price.

Is a Galil really an AK? I guess it is. :(

A myriad of pistol-caliber 1980's action-movie guns, not including my already-acquired Uzi.

Fixed that for you....

Dont get me wrong.....I'm not an M1A hater......those stocks make that rifle a boat anchor
Yeah. I had a Troy chassis on my M1A. Looked mean. I quickly put it back in the wood. Sold it to some fellow here....

If pure appearance is important, consider a wood stock if available (for example, M1A, Mini 14/Mini 30).
