Just remember I'm not an expert by any stretch and your experience may differ.

I suggest the bushmaster carbon-15 series, I own one and i have found it to be very dependable, not a whole bunch of jams at all and they are in a decent price range.

Default From Mo Town also

If you have a Cabelas by your house they are having Pre Black Friday Sales. A bushmaster carbine is $900. Here is a link to the gun itself on Bushmaster.

Bushmaster - Home Defense & Recreation Rifles
EDIT:The mag size is 30 not 10 like on Bushmasters' site

Also check out some local gun shops don't buys used unless you know what to look for in a damaged gun, some people love ripping off newer people. For example a junk barrel with messed up rifling. I'll make an AR buyers guide later. But price/quality ratio i would have to say DPMS and Bushmaster never messed with Daniel Defense stuff.
