That's too bad. The M1A is far superior

My wife is quite fond of the AR. Standard rifle and shotgun sizes are awkward as hell for petite women, children, and small men to handle. Adjustable stocks, pistol grips, hand guards, etc. go a long way towards making the platform effective in more diminutive hands.

It's all about the quoted "Mr Potato head" nature of the gun. If someone says, "1911" you know what that looks like. If someone says AR you don't know shit until you see a picture. It could resemble anything from an over-sized handgun to an SMG or hunting rifle.
