Mine was the M4 but I see its now out of stock , They still have the M4A1 for $619
my next build is going to be a AR pistol I think depends on what I feel like when I get ready to purchase my upper

If I had my license I would have a HK G36C , Thats one thats on my want list some day

Surplus Ammo and Arms complete lower. $170
Del Ton complete upper . $399 from Midway.
Midway -- $30 coupon over $300. will handle ffl for lower.
Shipping for everything, a rear sight and a mag. $80.
Total = $649.
Just did it myself. Shoots great. Tight groups. Not in the poor house. Will upgrade here and there over time but very happy with my "cheap" ar.

Lots of people here assemble their own lowers, myself included. I didn't go with the kit, but I bought a stripped lower, LPK, and stock and assembled it all myself. It's a straightforward process, and the stickies at the top of this sub-forum have all the information you need to build your own.

Got my DPMS Oracle 16" 5.56/.223 for $699 straight across the counter at my local gun shop no shipping or FFL fee. Only run a 100 rnds thru it so far but love the way it feels and shoots.

If you're wanting under $700 PSA is the only option for me. I wouldn't own anything else in that price range at this time. Reason, it's as simple as reading the specs, build material, and reviews from those who ACTUALLY know what an AR is capable of.

I personally would step up to the Spikes available through for roughly $780. It's a quantum leap in quality over DPMS, Doublestar, BM, and so on. l+5.56%2f.223+Rifle&groupid=208 It's sold out but is a good example of what you can get for a little extra money.

I linked a thread from another forum detailing the horrible findings of a local guy who works at Gander MNT. Academy. It's a climate controlled, clean environment ideal for proper functioning of a firearm yet some still show their true colors.
The bitterness of poor quality Lingers long after The sweetness of low price is forgotten.
