What is it going to be for?

My one piece of advice is not to go cheap just to save a few bucks. Research and go with quality components off the bat. It will end up saving you money in the long run.

Well you bought a good Glock! So put some thought in the AR, what you'll use it for and your budget ... whether you want to buy a factory rifle or build your own. What is your budget anyway?

$1500 will get you a great AR.

Figure out what you're wanting to do then research ARs in that catagory and ask questions.

I'd stop right there. I personally wouldn't take a bushmaster if someone gave it to me. With $1500, you could get either a Daniel Defense or BCM, and still have some left over for optics or ammo, or both. Both of those rifles will put a Bushmaster to shame, and aren't too expensive. BCM is around $1000, Daniel Defense, depending on the model, can be had for around $1100.

You tried cheaperthandirt? I get a lot of ammo from them, but they have some good deals on lots of accessories. Not sure if your looking for a red dot, but if you don't want to spend 300 on a used EOTech, check out the sightmark ultrashot. Just over 100, and other then battery life its pretty much the same thing.
