But our hobby is still viable.

I am just joining the hype Q. Selling isn't my priority. And do you think there will be someone to buy it? I myself don't think there is. Funny thing is.. yesterday i received an offer of $5K for it. But i said "No Thx". Angel side of me said... don't take it, you listed it for fun remember? While the Evil said of me said "Come on, why that guy didn't offer at least $7K?"

Back to the original question:
the "lower end" AR's are a lot better than their rep a slong as you stay away from Hesse/Vulcan.. DPMS and Delton for example make pretty good rifles at affordable prices.

Other than the nicer finish on my Rock River and Daniel Defense its hard to tell a difference in performance from my Deltons.

I have a Del-ton Echo 316/MOE and its a damn good carbine IMHO. I paid 699+tax for it about 6mos ago. Anybody who would pay these outragous prices being asked by scumbags either has too much money or they are stupid. Again, just my opinion.
