    !!!Bought my first AR-15!!!!

    I'm the kind of dude that takes a really long time to make a purchasing decision. I'm an avid pistol shooter and recently decided to step it up to long guns. I started hunting for my first AR..

    Obviously, price was a big consideration but more importantly quality was my main concern. I wanted to get the most bang more my buck. I considered building one but decided to leave that for a future project.

    I thought of getting one of the $600 M&Ps... but thought that I would regret not getting something better. Wanted to get a bushmaster and customize it but I really wasn't all that convinced.

    I stumbled upon (what I believe) the deal of the century. I picked myself up a Colt LE 6920 with all types of goodies for $1350.

    The package included a NIB, unfired AR with accessories in their original packaging with receipts. Here's the list of what it came with:

    1. Eotech 512
    2. 7" picatinny tactical hand guard
    3. Folding back up sight
    4. Tango Down quick detach vertical grip
    5. Original handle and hand guard
    6. New in the package BCM bolt upgrade kit
    7. New in the package BCM extractor spring kit (3 pack)
    8. 5 Pmags
    9. Bore snake
    10.200 rounds of Federal XM193 ammo
    11.Bull Dog carrying case.
    12. Original packaging for the accessories
    13. Original box for the rifle with factory mags
    14. Receipts of purchase

    He purchased the gun during the election when Colt prices were inflated. The receipt read $1600. All the extras totaled to more than $1000.

    I swiped it for $1350! Needless to say I'm a happy camper

    Congratulations! But I must protest. M&Ps are quality weapon systems. Top of the line, maybe not. But accurate, reliable, and tough; YES. I have never had any issue with mine. And I don't baby it. But I am happy that you found something that you have confidence in. That is a very important factor.

  6. I am a handgun person also...but will be looking into the AR-15 in the very near future. Nice post and I hope when I come back for advice you guys will all respond... Great job on your research and you purchase !!

  7. Just a footnote... I lived on a farm and hunted deer for 16 years in NC...and am familuar with rifles and shotguns...but for the past 10 years its been all handguns for self protection and my CCP...

    Yea sorry guys if I didn't make it clear how little I know about long guns. I mostly own pistols and with the exception of my little Savage Arms .22 this is my first rifle.

    I'm definitely not generalizing M&P's they are great and I know that much; I was talking about the "Sport" version that's really inexpensive..

    It just seems to me that to make an AR so affordable, they had to cut some corners somewhere.

    I built my first AR 15 last summer. I had only had bolt guns before. Fun project! And EASY!

    You got a very nice deal! I like shooting the AR more than my Remmy 700SPS 308. But the .308 has a ton more zap and range.

    Oh, buy the way, I hope you reload! Your gonna need to!

    I have one also. But aside from target shooting, the only purpose it serves is for the off chance I may need it for "crowd (mob) control" someday. The way things are going right now, I perceive that that "off chance" is picking up probability points in the standings.

    But you never know, common sence in politics just might magically break out somewhere and prove to be epidemic. In the meantime, I always try to be prepared for the worst. Unfortunately, in my life, "the worst" has always proven to be even worse than I can imagine! LOL!
