I'm looking to get an assault rifle so I can start getting into three-gun shooting at some point. What's a good AR and company for the money that costs about $1000? I'm willing to go 200-300 higher if it will be a significantly better deal for the money, but I'd rather keep it around $1000 or less. I'm about 5'6" or so, so I don't want a musket. I would also like it to be 5.56 or 7.62 and have a picatinny rail because I have a couple of fore grips and a pressure switch flashlight that I'd like to be able to use with it, and I want to get a decent EO Tech sight for it (I'd still like it to have iron sights as well). I have pretty limited experience shooting other AR's and really don't have the time to search through the gigantic multitudes of AR's available, so I thought I'd ask the subject matter experts and at least narrow it down to a few AR's to check out. Thanks for the help!
