Check out BCM. Their value is unbelievable. You'll get way more value for the extra $50-$100 you'll spend.

Id also go 5.56 over .223. You'll have many more options when deciding on ammo. A 1:7 twist barrel w/ add to that as well.

I will sugest considering a mid length gas system over a carbine too.

Anything you want. I have never put anything shorte/lighter than 55gr through mine. Some say rounds lighter than 55 might start to come apart out of a 1:7.
