Steer clear of new Bushmaster and the polymer ARs. I would also stay away from a piston operated. For what you want find a 18" or 16" (I would go 18") from a good name spend $1200 out the door and spend the rest in optics. I like eotech for red dot and nikon or Leopold for the distance you are talking.

Overall in quality and price point I like bravo company. Great product at awesome prices. They're known for some of the best bcg. I have a complete and a built that is majority BCM. Rainer arms does good things as well. Again others maybe "nicer" but at there price BCM all the way. Check out their websites

More than adequate budget.

Colt
BCM
Daniel Defense
Rainer Arms
LMT


Then put an Aimpoint on it, get mags, and ammo and you are done.......for now.

Anyone heard anything about the sig sauer ARs?

I found a few on their website I really liked and they seem to be a quality company.

But from the sounds of it, I can't really go wrong with most anything ill fun at a reputable LGS...right?

"reputable" ...yeah. A sale is a sale. If they have a carbon15 they've been sitting on for 2 years, you better believe they'll try and sell it. But yeah, for the most part, its pretty hard to screw up buying an AR, quality wise. You should be fine if you just stay away from polymer "carbon" lowers and unbelievable deals.

Oh yeah... Model 15 and Vulcan arms rifles might blow up and/or jam repeatedly if they cycle at all.


BTW, sig is a fine company . Im sure their AR works flawlessly.

Sig's got a loyal following, but they are relatively new to the AR game. I personally think there are better choices for the same price of a Sig AR.

Um, hate to break it to you but, Rock River Arms = made in the USA. Rock Island Armor= made in the Philipines.
Not the same company.......unless. RRA makes 1911s now, kinda doubt it tho.
