Hi everyone, i've finally decided to get myself an AR, i figured i'd buy a complete rifle and then upgrade a little at a time. I'd like to get either a mid or carbine length rifle but don't really know a good AR from a bad. Any advice on what make or model might be best for someone on a budget?

Palmetto State Armory sells a quality product at a good price.

The resisdent AR geeks endorse Daniel Defense, Bravo Company (BCM), Lewis Machine & Tool (LMT).

I have yet to encounter a dissatisfied Rock River Arms owner.

You are doing the right thing about asking before you buy.

NEVER go on a forum and ask folks what they think of an AR you have already purchased.

i would recommend a DPMS if you're gonna buy a complete rifle i have had the AP4 for six years and over 10000 rounds through it without a malfunction of anykind. it is a solid carbine that I am confident packing into any situation i could encounter.

Ynot link a particular make and model and ask for feeedback. Do your due diligence and research, look around.

Still waiting on Tikki to publish 'AR's for dummies'. It would be a success.

:D


Thx fer the kind words! OP let me know what you think!

It really depends on what you want it for. There are definitely different levels of ARs and sometimes you'll see different quality ARs sell for similar prices. For that reason I agree that research is key.

On a budget Palmetto State is nice.
