Sounds EXACTLY like what my son bought. Sweet rifle, and bayo lugs are overated. I can count on my nipples the number of times I put a bayo on my ARs or AKs or any of my other rifles for that matter.
If you can snag that pony for $800.00 - $1K, you did fine. For $800.00 you did GREAT - that was the lower end of the price range when my son snagged his almost 1 year ago.
Now anything over a $K... hmm. You roll the dice that the "ban" will hit and ALL ARs will go up, so you buy it at a $K - or - the ban blows over and normality returns. In which case, a $K is a bit high for that rifle, as most folks just have to have M4geries any more so the prices on the rifles weren't as "heated".
