    I am going to get an AR. Looking for basic, iron sights to be used for 50 to 200 yard targets and home defense. I prefer traditional M4 look, not going to accessorize this at all.

    I have read the sticky threads on ARs and they are very good. Looking for specific in today's world post shortage

    I highly doubt you could buy any AR-15 factory for 1000 dollars! :D

    If $1000 is your max look at

    Windham Weaponry

    Smith & Wesson

    Palmetto State Armory

    AR prices have come down significantly but supply is still an issue with all the backorders. $1000.00 for an entry level no hoopla M4 is within reach, building one can still save you a few bucks. Shame you missed many of the labor days sales. Have fun, keep us posted.

    Bushmaster is under $1000 and I've seen basic Colts for under $1000.

    Stag and Rock River are also nice. I myself own a Windham and have never had any problems with it. But I don't torture them like in the military. Any of these listed will outlast you.

    The basic Colts would probably be the best to hold their value.

    I love my Bushmaster XM-15E2S. Paid $650 for it used. Has been a great gun. I'd recommended looking into that.

    I like my Rock River Arms Entry Tactical LAR-15. It's got a Wylde chamber and a 16" moly chrome Wilson barrel. It eats everything I've fed it and I've yet to have a failure to feed except when I tried to use a full mag with a round already in the chamber (weird? but maybe coincidence? I normally load my 30 round mags with 28 ) It also came with a better trigger than the Colts in that price range come with.

    For a little more than $1000 you can get a Colt LE6920. Same as an M4, but 16" instead of 14.5" and no giggle switch. It will hold it's value and is very rugged. Great starting place.

    At our LGS, saw a DPMS basic AR for 599.99 last weekend, things are coming down, every AR15 they had was less than 1200.00 and some AR10's for higher.
