Default Quality Budget ar 15 under 800$ category?

Im looking to get an ar. I was looking at the s&w mp 15 sport model and it was on sale for 750!!$ it is a really nice rifle for the money a trusted american made rifle it had everything you need, back up sights, and p mag it did not have a forward assist ,or a dust cover but thats okay i guess but i was wondering is there any other good quality rifles under 800$ what other brand named rifles fall into this category?

The Sport is a pretty good AR but trust me it's not "on sale" at $750! People often have reported sales of $650 and under.

At the sub-$800 price point I'd recommend PSA. For the last year they've been the AR bang for the buck leader.

Another option is to put that $800 back in the sock drawer and save another $250-$300 and get a Colt.

Not a bad idea at all!

My first owned AR is a DPMS. The older ones suck. Hence all the bad reviews. The new ones are good. But watch out on prices. I got my AP4 for $685. At gun shows I see them for $750.

Mine is now customized. And for those who say a DPMS bcg is not staked. Get some glasses. Mine is and correctly.

Many good rifles out there.

I am currently building a new one.

$750 is definitely not on sale. Got mine on Black Friday for less than $600. I should have bought two!
