Thanks for the feedback, but when you live in the Compliant state of NJ your choices are few and costly, cant purchase a Colt in NJ choices S&W going for $1100 and Bushmaster around $1000, both guns had no sites and then there was the USA Tactical which is stated on the there web as a "military" type of rifle, it does have more weight to it than the S&W. I have a M&P15-22 so I was leaning towards a M&P15 sport but decided to go with the USATF. Next one Im building, thanks for the input.

I'm half tempted to move west to Pennsylvania. I've been waiting 17 days now for my "instant" background check to come back so I can take delivery of a lower I purchased. NJ is the absolute worst state in the nation for gun rights. Impossible to find ammo, limited gun stores, and everything sells for a premium. I can't find 15rd mags (NJ law) so I'm de facto stuck with ten rounders or I have to purchase in bigger mags in PA and pin them before I cross the border.

Getting ripped off in the other 49 states in the U.S. doesn't necessarily mean you got ripped off in NJ.

I would have gone with the M&P myself if that was one of your options.

Here is some info on USA Tactical Firearms/ USA-15 rifle;
Manufacturer of Precision Mil Spec CNC machined Lower Receivers and Flat-Top upper receivers. The Mag Well is Precision Machined with a Wire EDM which assures magwell dimensions and centering tolerances that are not possible with broaching methods. The opening has a generous chamfer and the internal surface appears polished which assures the magazine ejects flawlessly when the release button is pressed. All are are from 7075 T6 Forgings, Mil-Spec Type III Hardcoat anodized for the toughest most durable finish available, adding rigidity and resisting scratches/dings.

Lowers are marked Cal-Multi (low shelf/pre-ban). Standard .154" hammer/trigger pins, .250" take down/pivot pins, and commercial dimension buffer tube. Custom personalized engraving available. Emblems and lettering are engraved, not stamped so critical dimensions are not disturbed.
Order a Matched Flattop Upper/Lower combo and we will assure they fit without rattle, and min movement without sacrificing field accessibility or pin removal. This improves accuracy as well as the bolt carrier and buffer tube align perfectly. Uppers are machined for ejection port cover, forward assist, with case deflector and M4 feed ramps.
The Matched Upper/Lower combo from USA Tactical Firearms is the perfect combination for building your custom AR-15 rifle.

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.
Kinda sounds like me, learn en right Axxe
