Question H&K 93 or CAR-15?

Decisions, decisions....
So let me have it, pros and cons of both. Want to standardize, but don't know which way to go. We have our own ideas, now we want to know yours.

AR15. HK's are cool but parts are a bitch and they do break. Try waiting six months for a roller retaining clip. Clone HK's don't always run well so a trip to an quality HK gunsmith may be in order. Mounts for sights or scopes are spendy (you can buy cheap ones but they have been known to pinch the receiver to the point that it causes malfunctions) less options for sights (Although HK sights are pretty good) and accessories.

AR15 has great parts availibility, shoots smoother, generally lighter and you can put what you want on it. Buy a Colt, a BCM or an LMT and you'll have no problems.

Is it a clone or a real HK? Cause if it's a genuine HK you could get 2 or 3 pimped out AR's for the price of one HK..

That tells me a lot...

As usual, it all comes down to cost.... 2 for 1 deals always get me!
Thanks for the input!

Read this. It's a now-famous Joke post from long ago on the THR forum (and by the way, I'm a big fan of the G3-based guns.)

An open letter to the gun community from HK’s marketing department:

In a world of compromises, some people put the bullets in the magazine backwards…But it doesn’t matter, because our gun is on the cover of the Rainbow Six video games. Look how cool that SEAL coming out of the water looks… If you buy a $2,000 SOCOM, you will be that cool of an operator too. And chicks will dig you.

At HK, we stuck a piston on an AR15, just like a bunch of other companies have done, dating back to about 1969. However ours is better, because we refuse to sell it to civilians. Because you suck, and we hate you.

Our XM8 is the greatest rifle ever developed. It may melt, and it doesn’t fit any accessories known to man, but that is your fault. If you were a real operator, you would love it. Once again, look at Rainbow Six, that G36 sure is cool isn’t it? Yeah, you know you want one.And by the way, check out our new HK45. We decided that humans don’t need to release the magazine with their thumbs. If you were a really manly teutonic operator, you would be able to reach the controls. Plus we’ve fired 100,000,000 rounds through one with zero malfunctions, and that was while it was buried in a lake of molten lava, on the moon. If you don’t believe us, it is because you aren’t a real operator.

By the way, our cheap, mass-produced, stamped sheet metal guns like the G3 and MP5 are the bestest things ever, and totally worth asinine scalpers prices, but note that cheap, mass-produced, stamped sheet metal guns from other countries are commie garbage. Not that it matters, because you’re civilians, so we won’t sell them to you anyway. Because you suck, and we hate you, but we know you’ll be back. We can beat you down like a trailer park wife, but you’ll come back, you always do.

Buy our stuff.

I'd provide a direct link so the originating parties could be properly credited, but I can't find the original.

What is the average cost for both? I have no idea of how much these things can be. I remember I was dating a guy on a dating site, pop over to this website. And he was fond of guns. So when he told me about costs his hobby required, I was simply shocked. This fun cost a fortune. You need to have a very good income to be able to pay for it. It is not affordable for me at the moment.
