That's what we're here for =D
I hope I didnt come across as rude - I'm just being upfront and honest with you - unfortunately you waited too long
Anyone willing to sell you an AR under $1,000 right now, you need to be VERY suspicious of it.
At this point, my recommendation is to wait it out and see if they shoot down this AWB again.
In the mean time, keep adding to that $1,000
if the AWB gets shot down, you'll have between 1 and 2 thousand, and you can buy yourself a very nice AR15 (Get a Colt LE6940...because thats what I own, and I'm biased)
If it doesn't get shot down, and they pass it into law, you'll still be able to buy something - or invest that $$$ in some survival food and water that will surely be needed when gubment marches door to door taking guns
