I was at my LGS earlier today and handled a rock river ar. It was pretty nice, the guy working there owned one and he seemed to like it. He kind of talked me out of getting a .22 lr. I do want something that wont just piss someone off if i ever need to use it on something other than watermelons...
RRA tends to be an accurate AR if that's a requirement. Most ARs are pretty accurate though.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.

I like a do it all general purpose rifle. My choice would be a BCM, Daniel Defense, or a PSA for a little less. The exibit MOA accuracy while giving you the hell and back reliability/durability. In the $600 range, S&W Sport.
