Here's a thread dedicated to the AR platform...post some pictures and details of what you own...

This one here is my pride and joy...an Olympic Arms CAR-97, bought during the height of the Clinton Assault Weapon Ban in the late 90's. She is chambered for the 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge...and does not have a bayonet lug and originally had a pinned collapsible stock as that was two of the AWB provisions at that time. I have since replaced that pinned with a six position adjustable stock, making it a handy carbine in tight spaces as well as a tack driver out to a few hundred yards.



Olympic Arms is one of the few AR15 manufacturers to make every major component part in-house. They have been found to constantly meet the rigid specifications of military, government and law enforcement agency contracts. Olympic Arms has provided firearms for Law Enforcement and Government agencies around the globe, including every branch of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Olympic was also the first to introduce features now seen as commonplace on the AR15 platform. It was the first company to produce flat-top upper receivers, free floating aluminum hand guards, pistol caliber conversions, and AR-15 based pistols. They also manufactures many AR-15s in calibers other than the standard 5.56x45mm. Olympic was the first in the industry to offer AR15 style firearms in 9mm and .45ACP, 10mm, 7.62x39mm, and the Winchester Super Short Magnum cartridges.

SPECS

1:9 twist rate
16" 416 Black Oxide Stainless Steel heavy barrel w/muzzle break
A2 forged upper/lower receiver
Pachmayr grips
(shown w/ red dot sight)

Can us "piston" guys play here too?

Here is my Robinson XCR-L with an EOTech and a Burris tripler on a LaRue flip mount.I also put a Magpul CTR stock on it and a laser-light combo on the front.
I use this rifle for porcupines after dark (light em, laze em, blast em)and yotes when hunting in the pucker brush and trees.

I really like the flip mount ,because I can be walking thru the woods with it flipped to the side for snap shots at close range ,and flip it back for longer shots when I come out onto the flats.

There are 4 settings on the piston,when shooting M193 loads I leave it set on 1, but I did have to turn it up to 2 for reliable cycling when using some Wolf ammo I was given.
