Check PSA, they have a sale right now and their basic AR looks like a pretty solid build. If the money was in the account I would have already ordered.

quite a few, do your research well, and choose the one thatchu think will make you happiest.

that's what it all boils down to.

you can build a good rifle for that price, plus buy enough ammo to shoot it for a while.

why,.........are you goin to the ME?

or do you just wanna brag that you "shoot what the Marines/Grunts shoot?"

cuz that's basically all you will be doin.............the military GETS whatever item a DOD contractor gives them (ie., DOD contractor that was able to give the gooberment the best bid for said item).

there are PLENTY of military men and women that would gladly take a different weapon than what is issued to them by DOD contract.

The Colt 6920. Its 1.5" longer barrel and semiauto operation are the only real differences between it and a real Colt M4. And a bayonet won't fit due to the 16" barrel.

The Colt is an excellent choice if you want the carbine length gas system, many of us instead buy a 16" BCM, Daniel Defense or PSA with midlength gas. (Bayonet will fit these because they have the same dwell time as the M4 or M16A4.)
