if you really wanna same some cashola....
$470 Palmetto State Armory 16'' CMV, Chrome-lined, MPI, 5.56 NATO M4 Rifle Kit

go to your local gun shop, and buy a stripped lower. you can find one for like $80. Buy that rifle kit and make it yourself.

You'll support your local gun shop, and you'll build your own rifle. AND you'll save about $40 (depending on taxes and any paperwork fees)

Building your own will prove to be invaluable for troubleshooting and just kuz its kool.

ps, these sights are on sale.....they are really good, and the price is the lowest I've seen in a while.

I personally prefer the DOAs (#2).

I like the Diamonheads better but, they are better off in pairs (front and back).

When it comes to semi-auto ARs the difference could mean anything, because it usually indicates a "style" of rifle, and each manufacturer could produce their own model that represents an M4 style carbine.

In military terms the biggest difference was a move away from the three round burst (M4) to full auto on the selector (M4A1). Some of the Early M4s also still had M16A2 uppers on them with fixed carry handles.

In military terms
yup.

Civilian Arms are built to marketing requirements. M4 is REALLY COOL right now, so M4 is used a lot.

Military arms are built to specs and often have very detailed descriptions.

EDITED TO ADD:

Found these:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M4_carbine

Fun to read, more fun to shoot.

Given parts of the same quality, mil-spec will be stronger.

Buffer tube size may affect your choice of butt-stock stuff.

Mil-Spec is always 'way more cool'

Shouldn't matter for most folks. It can be changed out later if you wish.
