I'll throw in my $.01

Of the 2 there's really no comparison as they have different target audiences IMO. If your other AR is of high quality, like a BCM, and you don't plan on filling your safe w/ ARs the PSA would make for a nice trainer allowing you to keep the round count low on the other. Then again a .22 AR would fill that role nicely and save you money.

I recently had to make the same decision. I kept going back and forth weighing pros and cons such as price, use, shipping time, CS, QC, and overall quality.

So, which way did you go? And in the end, what was the deciding factor?

Come on man, can't leave a story hangin' like that!!

This sounds like the perfect application for a Bravo Company upper to shine.
