Looking for advice on what M-4 to buy
 
I'm looking for some good advice on what kind of M-4 I should buy, I looked at a couple yesterday, and I found a brand new Colt M-4 5.56 NATO for 1068.00 walk out price. And there also was a Bushmaster .223/5.56 for 860.00 walk out. Any experienced advice on either would be helpful.

Are they M4A1s? If so jump on them at that price then move to Mexico. I'm joking.

The Colt is a much better deal. Tell the person selling the BM that the firearms buying frenzy is over.

Awesome thanks, I ended up finding the S&W M&P-15 (5.56) for 800 from a local cop/old coworker.

i shudder to think that my beloved money pit have eaten up over $2000 of my hard earned money so far with accessories.

Isn't the the truth.

I bought mine as a kid and assembled at home. Cost me $670 + $25 for the FFL transfer of the Lower. Love the product, hate the company; Del-Ton. (google; won't justify that place with a link). Their customer service was non-existent for me; cost me a lot of frustration AND money for their mistake; refused to correct it. The product, however, is fine. Love the rifle. No issues, ever in the last three years of ownership. Buying a 'kit' might be an option for you; I used Youtube "how to assemble" videos to ensure I got it right - had been 15 years since I'd been to the Armorer's course.

is that a mbus on the side of the rail? and how do you like the mako magnifier? worth the $?

it's a CheaperThanDirt $30? rear Flip up sight on the rail - works great; dead-on at 175 feet (about as far as I can shoot in my back yard). I have the EOTech (its for sale) off right now, as well as the Mako - which I really like, by the way. The eye relief isn't great, but for how I shoot, it's a very worth-while investment.

Confused:confused: are you saying you bought parts for and assembled an AR and your a kid:eek: Or are you saying you went to ToysRus and bought a toy

Fill us in on the rear sight on the rail at 9 o'clock.
