Default AR help please

I'm looking to get my first AR rifle and I'm trying to get the DL on them .im trying to find the one that would be best for me. I'm a very active shooter I like to shoot 2 to 3 times a week at a min. I'm also a deputy sheriff so I need one that I can count on. I've been looking at the bushmaster carbon 15 and the sig m 400 any

Bushmaster carbon 15 for a duty weapon is a definite NO.


The Sig would be a better choice but they are very new to this type of platform.

I would honestly stick with Colt, BCM, and Daniel Defence, all of which are in the same price range as a Sig M400.

Read This and tell me what you think.

I agree with AT, the C15 would be an insane choice for a duty rifle. Definitely look at his recommendations, down the road you'll be glad you did.

BTW, what does your agency allow and/or recommend? See what they say.

My vote goes towards BCM, PSA, or Colt. I have also heard a lot of good things about Daniel Defense.
