New, high-end rifle for graduation?
 
I have graduation coming up soon, and I want to get a really really REALLY good rifle. It needs to be extremely reliable, semi-auto, ergonomic, have a nice profile. Must fire .223/5.55X45mm NATO.

What I had in mind:

FN SCAR 16s
FN Fs2000
Bushmaster ACR
H&K SL8
Steyr AUG
Customize an AR-15 I already have
Something else of the like, that you recommend.

Which one would you pick, and why?
Would you avoid any of these, and why?

I appreciate the help.

how about building an AR15 from the ground up.. adding the "match" parts you want... it solves the well i like this but not this problem.
buy a stripped lower to start, and add parts from there like, triggers, stock, upper assembly.

doing this would probly end up being the second cheapest... overhaulingyour current would be the cheapest..

LaRue Tactical
Les Baer Custom
Wilson Combat

These are some of the best on the market.

and on a more affordable note, get a good AR and a ton of Ammo for it.

I have extremely good ARs. I don't like the gas system. That's one of the reasons I said re-build these. It was also suggested I build ground-up. I want to put a lot of magpul stuff on it of I do that.
