Default Purchasing an AR15

I am looking to purchase an AR 15. I am curious what brands would you suggest? I've thought Colt. Want to hear your thoughts.

I love my stag model 4 m16... Super accurate and left land ... My buddy loves his Daniel defence and his Remington r15, he hunts coyote ans bobcat like nothing ... Colt is a fine crafted machine but never came across one or a owner

People like colt and PSA. Can't say for myself, never held either, but I can tell you that I love my STAG. If I were you I'd also invest in some ear protection because these babies are LOUD

Stag has a waiting list like you wouldn't imagine but they make a excellent product

I had bad experiences with DPMS, I also know person custom built Ar"s with tge New frontiers Ar-15 lower and they.all swear by it, so if ur on a budget I would buy a lower and go from there

My Del-ton Echo 316/MOE is a very well made carbine that has been flawless in operation and accuracy is sub-moa with PMC X-Tac ammunition and even better with my handloads. They make a rifle for every budget and need.

http://www.del-ton.com/DTI_16_Carbine_MOE_Rifle_p/rfth16-moe.htm

I paid $599+tax, added a magpul buis and Im shooting and enjoying a fine AR. I have since added a Eotech 512.

Colt. All the way. 6920 or 6940.

You pay a little extra for quality, but that's true of anything.

Click on the link in my post. Click the technical specs of the delton and see for yourself. Quality all the way. It doesn't have to be a colt to be a solid carbine. I would put my delton up against any carbine in its class.

AFAIK, only the Colt is MilSpec. Daniel Defense and BCM are close.
