A: That's a tough one. A Model 12 is a Model 12, no matter what you do to it, but the ARs are shape-shifters—all alike, and yet all unlike one another. One that may emerge as a classic is the Steyr AUG, which is not popular but is the first genuinely successful bullpup, a type of rifle that we are going to see much more of. Among more conventional rifles, I think the Thompson/Center Dimension will someday get the recognition it deserves. The rifle can shoot 12 different cartridges and looks 21st-century to boot.
