Thread: Best AR Value

    Best AR Value

    The Price of AR's appears to be coming down. I don't remember being able to get a Bushnell with Red Dot for under $700.00.
    I'm thinking that's a great value.
    Anyone know of better?

    I wanted a Mini 14 but they do not appear to be coming back down.

    Are you asking about scopes (Bushnell red dot?) or ARs?

    The hardware is the same, but the software is vastly different.

    If you're just a casual shooter then I wouldn't get too hung up on brands........slick advertising campaigns don't make a firearm better. I have yet to come accross a "junk" AR manufacturer although I'm not exactly enamored with the ploymer lowers that Bushmaster is selling. If you're planning on doing lots of shooting (a few thousand rounds + per year), then in the long run you'd probably be better off with with a Colt, Sig, or HK. Personally I think Sig ARs are a great value.

    Just stay away from polymer uppers or lowers.

    I have two very different AR's...

    My AR-15 is a M&P Sport and honestly, it might be the best "value" AR I have seen.

    My second is an AR-10 Sig Sauer 716 and was also a steal.

    The M&P can be had for under 700 currently most anywhere.

    The Sig borders closer to $1800 these days. Both are a great value, but... you have to define value a little better. Which is the cheapest? Or Most gun for the money? What is your price range?

    Casual shooter or not stay away from polymer lowers.. They work with Glocks. Not so much with ARs. Sig, S&W, RRA, Colt, and Bushmaster are all good guns. You'll see people hate on bushmasters but I've had mine for 6 years and it has been one of the most reliable ARs I've had. Not the most accurate thing in the world past about 300 yds, but its a carbine and I bought it for CQB stuff anyways. I wouldn't trade it for the world.

    I have the Armalite AR-15 and an Olympic colapsable stock with a C-More Red Dot. The C-More is worth over $200.00. Armalite is a great rifle, The AR-10 is way out of my range for the one I would buy. The AR-10 is a better, in my view, rifle and cal.

    I have the S&W "Sport". In Dec, 2011, I paid $599.99 at Cabellas. Not sure what they go for now.
    Has worked well for me. I did put some aftermarket stuff on it, But still came out pretty cheap.

    You should take into account the barrel. If you are going to shoot nothing but 60gr or smaller bullets then a cheaper 1in9 Barrell is fine. If you want to shoot larger rounds for longer distances you will want a 1in7 barrell. Typically cheaper ARs come with 1in9 barrels.
