    Colt and S&W are both good brands just very pricey!! Take a look at Rock River, Tel Ton, DPMS and even Bushmaster. All make quality stuff and can get a base model for $800 to $1000. I have both DPMS and bushmaster parts in my home built AR and to this day have not had a single malfunction.

    Here's a bushmaster for just under $1000.00

    The s&w had rails flat top with flipup sights was #1 choice so far

  5. Love my RRA

    I know that the questions was what NOT to buy, but I bought a Rock River about a year ago and love it. It was in my price range and I had a little left over to contribute to an EoTEch 557 with 4x magnification. At just over 4000 rounds, it is still nice and tight.

    Got ya. That's the configuration I have on my rifle (Flattop with an A.R.M.S flipup BUIS). That bushmaster I linked is also a flattop it just has a removable carry handle instead of the flipup sites. But you can get any of the listed brands in about any configuration you could dream up.

    I do not own an AR style rifle... but, having done some previous research, if I could purchase one today, my choice would be the H&K MR556 (H&K MR556 and MR762: Civilian HK416 and HK417 | The Firearm Blog).

    I am not sure what you SHOULDN'T buy, however I have a bushmaster and love it. Very accurate and no malfunctions so far (knock on wood).).

  11. Knock on wood? I thought this thread was about the AR. Knock on polymer!

    Anyway, my dad's got a Bushmaster as well and he's never had any problems either. It even feeds that lacquer-coated steel-case Monarch ammo with no problem.
