i will contradict myself a little though....if you get one for under 400 quid that has already had the mods done then it's a bargain. If not then a Mk3 PT or an earlier EV/Steyr are a much more sensible buy.
But where in the initial query did anyone ask for a world championship winning gun? How many of the guns you are recommending, in the price bracket of the AR20, will win the worlds?
Lets get real here, people want a start in FT and not everyone will go on to want to compete seriously. The AR20 will give some one a start in local comps or just fun target work competing against themselves.
Too much elitism will put people off the sport.
