So I think I'm going to stick with metal. In my price range I'm looking at Windham Weaponry. They use 4150 and I believe it's out of the original, do I dare say "Bushmaster" plant with some original employees. So any info on this idea would be highly appreciated since you all seem to be very knowledgable. Also would it be to my advantage to go with a 2 stage trigger or stick with a normal one. Thanks again all.

Yes, Windham Weaponry is the old Bushmaster crew and they make some fine AR's. You can buy a AR for accuracy (Windham or old Bushmasters) or buy one to beat the crap out of (Colt) your choice.

And yes there is a gas port under the flashlight holder on my AR.

Base model about $1000 I can add all the extras later. I am left handed but don't want to buy a left handed AR just in case I have I resell it later. The one concern I do have is am I able to change the side the safety is on. When in fire it is uncomfortable. The mag release I'm not concerned about too much. I don't plan on having to change mags quickly.

It is not difficult to add an ambidextrous safety.

Not as nice as a Colt or BCM and maybe not even a $750+/- PSA.
