Correct. It was a rhetorical question

Oh, tactically? Well, I was a sailor and for us--none. For infantry with a need for suppression fire? Maybe it's different for them.

As for burst fire triggers, it is my understanding (from second hand information) that they are "crunchy" and that single shot or FA triggers are better. So, for trained and brained users, maybe a semi/FA trigger group is a good thing--options. For just about everyone else, semi is all they'll ever need.

Now a smooth 2- or 3-rd burst trigger without the metric butt ton of cash and hassle? Yeah, I'd do it, for sure. Why? To look cool!

Even suppressive fire is debatable. There probably have been a few situations where it could be used, but rarely. Well placed shots in semi auto are still going to be more affective (in most situations).

Even for room clearing and CQC, a full auto M4 is out of place. If you need full auto you're much better off with a pistol caliber sub-machine gun, as they have less muzzle climb and you don't have to worry about over-penetration.

M4A1 was originally designed for Special Operations Forces (SOF) with r&d done by the Navy SEAL's. This is the reason why it has FA and the heavy barrel profile. They wanted the ability to use suppressive fire. By contract the M4 has selective-fire with a 3-rnd burst and a thinner profile barrel. These days when someone mention M4 they usually mean a M4A1.

Sorry for the off topic. When I was on the 726 & 729 in Bangor, WA, I always envied the 555. The Dolphin was a cool boat.

My AR as it stand currently.





In the second pic I added a two sided midwest industries QQD mount around the buffer tube nut and took some of the magpul rail covers off and used the QD hole underneath to mount my surplus M1 Garand sling.

My name has been a surprising thing that people notice. I chose it needing a non-car-specific name for the forum. Subaru's rally team used to use 555 as a sidestep to tobacco advertising. 555, triple nickles, hey, great forum name! So it was just a funny-to-me reference to Subarus with nothing more intended.

BTW, it turns out ADV has a Triple Nickle already! Go figure!

When were you on the 726, Hoots? I was a 726 Goldie from 94-97.

New pics of my SPR rifle.

DanielDefence S2W 18" 1:7 in 223 wylde
Mid-length gas system
Rifle buffer
Superior Arms lower, RedX upper
Troy TRX extreme 15" rail
Spikes battle trigger
M16 f/a bcg
Magpul everything
RockRiver scope mount (sooooo heavy)
Cabelas 3-12 .223 scope (already had it)

A little heavy out front, but I'm loving it off a bag. And with 72gr ammo its way more accurate than I am. I want some better glass and It'll be done.
