Im not looking to defend my family with it. But i do want something good at the range
Your options will be a bit limited at that price. You could probably get something used or maybe an m&p.
I have an Eagle Arms (made by Armalite) and I got it new right at $800. It shoots really well.
For 9 Benjamins you could build your own and and be proud of it - read the stickies, read the build threads do some online shopping then get back to us.
Lots of folks here will gladly help you along the way
My windham weaponry was 829. It's beautiful.
Good advice, OP, a lot of us do just what Dog said. I wouldn't wait too long though, parts are getting scarcer and more expensive every day. Of course this affects the price of complete rifles too. I'm starting a BCM build that should come in around $950 before optics.
My M&P Sport was just over $600. Can't go wrong with that.
Maybe check out DPMS they have some inexpensive rifles and they are a good quality gun
You can build a really nice AR for that amount, even with current prices. I'd recommend checking out PSA, BCM and a few others as well. PSA, nicely, sells everything you need short of the lower receiver and the sights for less than $700.
I agree...cuz I am doing it. Mainly thru PSA they are having a great sale. Bought this upper http://palmettostatearmory.com/inde...ped-upper-without-bcg-or-charging-handle.html
And check their lower receiver kit with trigger and most reasonable buffer tube kit with standard stock I could find.
This is what I was talking about, although you are right as well, Jason.
Is the stag for 800 any good? Or bushmaster orc?
For $800 or a little more you can do better than those two.
I agree that PSA has some great prices. Like Jason I recently bought their milspec receiver extension kit (with buffer, spring, end plate and castle nut - no slider) and the quality was really good and for only $40.
You can tell me if you agree, but I'd rather order the PSA rifle kit, buy a lower and some irons, and go to the range than buy a bushy.
I definitely agree Ben, the PSA kit + your own stripped lower is a great deal any day of the week. Slap on a $57 MBUS 2 and you're ready to go! And still in the $800 +/- budget.
