The LW barrel on the Daniel Defense is going to make all the difference. You'll pay more than Spikes but DD all the way!

Thanks so much for your input! I don't know enough about all the particular specifics yet for AR's. Just use to bolt action hunting rifles. Don't know where to start, soo much info. Need a basics 101 thread.

Though I have enjoyed a SpikeTactical in the past the LW DD is my favorite. Not to make it more difficult but don't forget BCM.

I think we all dream of rocking an OBR or Preda___ of some sort.

I wouldn't necessarily pick a BCM over a DD but you could probably save yourself a couple bucks and BCM makes an outstanding rifle. I have one of each and would grab either on my way out the door.

With a name of LaRue, and you're not connected?

I also think you should throw BCM in the mix. Right there with DD but a little cheaper. Slightly more expensive than Spikes but better. You can get any rail you want, too.
