Thanks for the info gentlemen. I'm about as mechanically inclined as a rock so I think a complete rifle is the way to go now. I got 10 30 round mags from my time in the Corps so they are really lonely without a rifle..lol. Joebob does the PSA come with a hard case?

Skip the hard case unless you need to take it on an airline. And then you're going to want a Pelican or Storm case, expensive. A soft case like the Voodoo can carry everything you need at the range and more. Heck bring your lunch, 12 pack, tools, bag of ice... LOL you get the message. I've found hard cases to be very restrictive.

Now that's some good service! Talk about instant satisfaction.

People who have been in the market to buy a new AR know that being able to find a nice, affordable and well equipped rifle like this one that is "in stock" and ready for immediate shipment is somewhat of an oddity these days.

Boy you ain't kidding. I usually buy from Buds but they are just about out of all their ARs. Great service and fast shipping and personal attention. I will definitely be a Joe Bob's repeat customer. @ Quinton I picked up the M4 ORC-16" Chrome Lined 5.56 Mil Spec w/ Magpul MBUS Sight.

I don't know but I'm starting to change my opinion of the S&W ARs. I just wish there were more S&Ws in the hands of harder use guys.

+1 on passing up the hardcase. If it comes with the rifle, it's usually too cheap to use for travel anyway.

Soft side is DEF the way to go...especially if you like to change configs. MOLLE system bags/pouches are readily available. VooDoo is good stuff.

Yeah I'm going with a MOLLE setup since I have some leftover pouches from my 782 gear I can configure the case a number of different ways and it won't cost me anything for mag pouches.
