Yeah, I'm not crying for someone with a BAR, my friend!   ;D  The Marlins are merchandise but some like the BAR are legends and history.  I was just getting one of my Garands ready for the next range trip and admiring the pure classic utility and beauty of a WWII weapon.

Anyway, you got me thinking about a Ruger Carbine now.  Sounds useful and fun.

Yes,the BAR does set the bar a little high even with the M14's and M1's in the rack next to them . I wonder how many 'plastic' guns will become CLASSICS?

I have been thoroughly impressed with mine, traded in my Kel-Tec Sub2K.
I immediately installed the Glock magazine adapter, and I have found that the Magpul 21 round Glock-pattern mags are the perfect length for this, added capacity but not terribly long hanging out the bottom of the carbine. I've been carrying it as a pack gun on a regular basis in a standard pack, but have been considering one of the Copper Basin Takedown Packs, for a more minimal "less tactical" look.
Perfectly acceptable accuracy at the distances I have used it at, and no hiccups other than with some cheap Tula 9mm that I ran through it, and I don't make that a habit of using.
Lots of new accessories hitting the market for it too, stocks, trigger groups, etc.

I thought I'd stick my head in the door, see how the old crew were doing.

In the factory stock, it's very well balanced. It's heavier that the Sub2K, but that's fine by me. Feels better built, and I feel like its going to be more durable.
