Default Help me decide on a AR-15

Hey guys I'm going to start shopping around for a ar-15. Next year with my graduation money I'm gonna buy one. My question is is what manufacturer makes a sub $1000 gun that isnt totally crap. I've been looking at Rock River arms and really cant find anything for under $1000. Somewhere in the 500-800 dollar ranger would be great cause I was wanting to get some nice accessories for it like the slide-fire stock a nice red dot sight or a good hunting scope. I'm primarily gonna use it for target shooting and hunting coyotes so what are you suggestions?

that, on both points

there's a ton of good lowers and uppers out there. if you want new and to save a lot of money, buy everything separate and assemble it yourself.

you're in cali, can you own an AR there? lol

i've never bought a gun off a site. if you do want to do that, you'll have to find a gun dealer in your area and buy it through his FFL. i'd keep it local myself.

remember the ffl deal...

any lower level ar is just that... a lower level. but remember you could replace it piece by piece that cause you problems. just a suggestion.

personally i'm building one. you can get a stripped lower for as low as $50 plus shipping ffl sometimes from http://palmettostatearmory.com/ if you find the right sale... sure then you have to buy everything else... you can get a complete rest of gun for $400ish... but its still a lower level ar.

Step 1. Get your busted ass in your truck.
Step 2. Drive 80 miles east to Sacramento.
Step 3. Finger **** my AR.
Step 4. Shoot the shit out of it.
Step 5. Fall in love.
Step 6. Buy it.


Seriously though, come shoot mine.
I'll type out a real response when I get to a computer.
