If you were to buy ANY .223 on the market under $2500, what would it be?

Like Q, I would build my own. It would be a bastard red-headed stepchild of many different manufacturers. The buttstock assy. would be bushy, lower receiver would be one of the companies that has a policy to not sell their product to NY, CA, or any state that has whittled their citizen's 2a rights to nonexistence, (actually, all my parts would) The upper would be a monolithic, the BCG would probably be DD. I would have a 3 1/2 lb trigger, possibly a one peice fcg. Whatever gas block I had, it would have a bayonnete lug just to piss off the gun grabbers. I would have an evil flash hider, and it would all be Black.

Fsted2a, that's exactly why so many of us here pick and choose our favorite parts. Newbs tend to think a factory build is the holy grail but some finally get it that you actually can "have it your way"! And yes, so far my three builds are black! But by chance I ended up with stripped lowers from MA, CA and IL - states with tough gun laws. Finally, my last one came from a free state, AZ.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.

My vote is for either the Wilson Combat Recon Tactical (16" barrel) or Wilson Combat SPR Special Purpose Rifle (18" barrel). They are under $2500, superb craftsmanship, durable and reliable. Either is perfect for when the SHTF.
