$1000 to spend on AR15
 
I have $1000 to spend on a new AR15. I have no idea what company or buy from. I like the Daniel Defense quality and looks but I don't think I can pay the price for those. So please let me know any ideas you have for a new AR15 for me! Thanks!

partner, right at this time, a $1000 isn't going to get you much in the way of an AR15! in case you have missed it, there are just very few available in most places and those that are. are going for premium prices. some for at least twice their normal prices.

Like Axxe said, now is not the time.

6 months ago, you could have bought a very good one for that price.
Today, (if you can find one) that $1000 is going to get the selection from the bottom of the barrel.

I have noticed that and wondered why the prices have gone up so much..?

Have you been watching the news? I don't know how any gun buyer could have missed it!

Even before the recent gun scare problems you find a DD for less than $1200 id be worried bout it being stolen.

I hate giving bad news - but you're not going to get an AR15 for $1,000 right now.

I was at a gun auction about a month back, and they had AR15s from manufacturers I've never even heard of, in bad, ****ty condition, going for $1,200 easily.

They even had .22 LR S&W M&P22's going for 800-900 dollars just because it LOOKED like an Ar15
