Default Not sure made the right choice

I recently purchased USATactical 5.56, but since I live in NJ I'm waiting the 10 to 12 days to pick-up, my question did I purchase a quality AR? I was ready to buy M&P15 but when I saw the USA Tact I really thought it was a better than the M&P any comments are welcomed... Thanks

the AR is made up of parts ... as long as the receivers are of quality make everything else can be changed out or upgraded if need be. When you get the rifle take it to the range and break it in ... then shoot the snot out of it. If something is not up to par you will find out

do you always buy things and then ask if they are a quality product?

the time to ask questions is before you buy, not afterwards.

or did you get caught up in some ill-fated feelings that you suddenly needed an AR and bought the first one that came along?

not bashing on you, just trying to understand your reasoning here.

Can you provide links and specs for the one you got? Not familiar with that brand but you can be sure the devil is in the details. Hopefully it's good.

I think you should of did a little more research on the product, or at least asked more questions before you purchased your rifle if you're unsure.

This forum is great for asking question and there a ton of information here if you want it. Good luck!

This isn't bad advice. When it comes to resale value, the name stamped on your rifle's receivers can matter greatly. But for actual function, nothing trumps the (1) barrel, (2) BCG, and then sometimes third (depending on the setup and use) the optics and trigger.

Buying an 'in demand' name receiver pays off every time if you intend to eventually sell the rifle. And it's also good for range pride and such. But honestly, receivers are not near as impactful in true function as many believe. And they're also not stressed in such a manner that getting the bestest coolest thing will actually make for superior performance in my opinion.

And yes, when I can land them at a fair price I'm very happy to build around Noveske lowers, Vltor uppers, etc. But that's all about range pride and resale value. So the right receiver can pay dividends when you sell. But in many cases the affordable and available stuff (PSA for example) is 100% as functional.
