Also it's a c-8, not an AR-15. ;)

Edit: Actually 5.56mm= 0.2189 inchs, but apparently speaking purely from ammunition a 5.56 NATO round is equivocal to a 223, or so I hear.


Not true, the 5.56 and the .223 are not interchangeable rounds that can be loaded into a gun that feeds one or the other.

Or rather, you can't put a 5.56 in a .223 barrel, but you CAN put a .223 in a 5.56. You just won't get nearly as good of a group if you were using matching ammo.

Also, you can call it whatever you want, but that platform is directly taken from our AR-15. ;)

The C-7 may be taken from your AR-15, or the M-16, but the C-8 is closer to an M-4 then an AR-15.

But there are some differences, for instance Weaver rails over Picatinny.

Plus ours (the C-7) is made of a more robust plastic that handles better in cold weather.

-whistle- Ahem...

AR-15 < M16 < M4 Carbine

Time line of creation, FYI. The M16 we've all come to know and love is based off the AR-15 design, and the M4 was created in order to make a more compact version of the M16 for special forces and SEALs.

The AR-15 came first? Well that's something I didn't know, I always thought that the AR-15 was a model that was made for civilian use with a short clip and single fire. I did obviously know that the M-4 was created for special forces as a more compact version.

But I would still prefer a Diemaco C-7 assault rifle or a C-8 assault carbine over an M-16 or M-4 respectively.

Edit: As for the original point, the C-8 carbine is compact, and the ammunition it fires is very comparatively small, so for all my history shortcomings I still win! Mwahahahah! :P

Fixed.

Constructive criticism, don't mistake magazine and clip, The two are very different. Of course, it boils down to whichever you prefer, and feel more comfortable shooting.

Still, it's just an AR platform with a fancy name and different combination of letters and numbers. ;)

There are differences in their construction methods and materials as well, they're not a complete copy.

And the differences are as such that I would prefer to use a Diemaco C-7 or C-8 then I would a Colt M-16 or M-4. Just cuz yours came first doesn't necessarily mean it's better. :P


Difference between clip and magazine noted, also. Thanks. :)

Oh.

The whole thing makes me want to kick a tree in anger and rage.

They had to build the tracks before they could move that you know. That was one hell of a cannon. I think the recoil on that something like 200/250 yards. :shock: :lol: :lol: :twisted:
