Be sure to check out the Springfield Armory M1A Scout Squad with black fiberglass stock. Matt already posted an image of one. The scope and bipod are optional.

What are you going to use it for?

I just picked up a Bushmaster 16" M4 ORC from Cabela's for $879. It's a "base" model, shoots both .223 and 5.56, and can be easily modified. The model I picked doesn't have any iron sights, it's "optic ready", which means you would put on a scope right away. Most people I've heard from swear by their irons and say that you should always learn to shoot with them first.

Anyways - CMMG is running a "bargain bin" special. $570 for a complete rifle. That's using an unknown upper and a mix of lowers (CMMG, DPMS, or Doublestar) - I've heard nothing but good things about the CMMG or DPMS, unsure about Doublestar.

Anyways - from what I've read, everyone who has ordered one of these rifles has been really happy with them. Most people have reported getting a rifle with all new parts,etc.

Their site is at: http://cmmginc.secure-mall.com/shop/index.php?cat=33&shop=1&

I was debating between this deal at first too... I ended up getting my Bushy because Cabela's had them in stock and I could walk out of the store with it the same day. These deals need shipped to your FFL, etc.

Anyways - if you just want a black rifle to mess around with, you won't find a better deal than these bargain bin ones... Can you piece one together for that price? Maybe... But I wanted a complete one first, before I try my luck at building one.

If you're on a tight budget, the Olympic Arms Plinker Plus (Carbine, 5.56 NATO) may very well be the best entry level AR-15 on the market. With a MSRP of only 629.00, you should be able to get an out-the-door price of under 600.00.

How much are you looking to spend and how handy are you. The ar-15 is a great platform with a ton of accessories avaliable, you can also buy an assembeled one or pick your own parts and assemble it yourself.
