Default Best AR under $8-900

Help me out with some good names and more importantly why you think they're the best(chrome lined barrel, scope/red for included, ertc). I know the usual brands but as far as certain models I'm not too sure.

Your right and alot of people on here think alot of us work for PSA , Which we do not. However there arent many high quality rifles out there in that range your looking for . You will always hear people say save a little more money and buy brand C or brand D or add a little more and buy brand N .
SO here it goes high quality , mil spec rifle way under your budget $582 shipped to my door in the mid west . Use the rest of your budget for optics and ammo

Putting it together is like putting a kids puzzle together . Its not real hard . My youngest age 10 has put 90% of one together with my help . It takes very minimal tools . A hammer , screw driver , needle nose and punch will get everything done . There are specialty tools but you dont NEED them to get it built properly

I like my M&P15 well enough. It is a no dust cover/forward assist model but did come with a Magpul MBUS on it. Pretty good shooting rifle. I put a Nikon P223 on it. It's no bolt gun as far as accuracy but I don't expect it to be.

First, what do you want to do with it. A lightweight tactical carbine, a precision target shooter, a truck gun, etc. No one model is best at everything.

PSA has some pretty good deals when they run their rifle sales, in your price range under $900 your limited . Delton makes a decent rifle in your range .

Really , its not hard to put one together and eventually your going to need to disassemble it to clean it up good one day, so this would familiarize yourself with it . You cant put the wrong parts in the wrong holes , they just dont fit right .
There is only 31 parts in a lower parts kit and 37 total in the lower build kit, the upper will already be assembled you just have to set it on the top of the lower and push 2 pins in . Your first build might take you 35-40 minutes watching a video . It takes me about 15 minutes to build the complete lower . Its Really pretty simple . Like I said my 9 yr old put 95% of one together by himself with me watching ,I just had to hold the lower while he drove the bolt catch pin in and help him get the trigger guard roll pin started . When you pour the parts out the first time it is a bit over whelming but if you lay them out like the pic below and follow a good quality video off of youtube it can be done very simply .
Who ever laid this diagram must have thought part#7 was not needed as its missing on the page. I just caught that so we will call the disconnector spring part #7
I have a couple of lowers coming first of next week , maybe I will just do a nice slow video of a lower build up close and personal to show how easy it really is
