    Rock River would be my choice of the two.

    I know quite a few people who own RR and swear by them. They seem to be really great guns. I have a Bushy and love it. IMHO get what you can afford, you can change internals to suit your needs.
    I bought mine from a friend for a really great deal that I couldn't pass up.

    Yeah but these are those evil black rifles. They don't even have a sign out front that says who they are :rolleyes: in case someone couldn't tell from the high barbed wire fence, cameras, address on their website etc. Next time I pick up an order I'll see what I can do for ya.;)

    Nothing wrong with Bushmaster but my Rock River is one of my favorite guns at home. And I also own a Daniel Defense..Hard to tell the difference by looking at them even tho itsa hundreds more....(though the DD has much tighter fit between lower and upper.)

    So I gess I'd say RRA over BM only based on experience with one... which I think is not a good data point to base a recommendation on.

    There are better choices. Have you looked at anything else?

    I second this, there are other choices. Any particularb reason you're settling on these two?

    What other suggestions for $900 besides DIY build? I can't speak for the OP but I would rather have a factory built AR from someone who knows what they're doing. Because I wouldn't know where to start with a DIY.

    read the stickies at the front of the AR section of the forum. there are also many videos on YouTube that show how to build an upper and a lower. Brownell's also has videos on their website on building and AR. there are many books devoted to the AR platform. nice thing is they really don't require a lot of specialized tools to build and can be built a little over time as money allows if money is tight. $900 would buy the parts to build a pretty nice AR. another advantage to building is you can use what suits you, without having things that don't.

    PSA sells excellent complete ARs for less than $900. But I'd rather choose the parts myself.

    DIY is easy if you learn the AR platform and choose wisely. Really there's no difference between a quality factory rifle and a quality build. Not selecting or even knowing what goes into your AR is insane but I know people do it all the time.
