As if the $1000 PSA/Aimpoint package wasn't good enough...
PSA HF midlength 16", MI handguard, Aimpoint: $1059.99
You will not find a better deal in this price range. This is essentially an $1100 Colt, with an upgrade
to midlength gas, a handguard upgrade
($180), an M16 C158 BCG ($50 upgrade
), a hammer forged barrel ($50 upgrade
), and a $400 red dot optic on top of all that.
If you're in the market for a do-it-all $1000-1400 AR, this is the ticket. And if you want to spend less? Buy it anyway, and sell the optic for $300! This is a $1600 setup anywhere else.
