    Hi guys so last year I bought my first AR. A really cheap delton kit. I ended up loving it and putting a few hundred rounds a month through it. I've decided I want to step it up and have recently sold my cheap starter and am looking for the next level up. I'm looking to stay under 1500. I typically shoot under 200 yards so I'm looking for probably a 16 inch barrel and also I do not want permanent front sights of at least front sights that fold down. I was looking at maybe the colte6940 and wondered your thoughts or any other suggestions you had

    I'd take a look at the Troy carbines. They are new kids on the block but hopefully there should be some reviews and personal accounts on them.

    Honestly you already know what you want, build it!

    Personally I would read up on ARs and build one myself. That's what I did and I completely customized it too me. Stick with good reputable parts ( rock river 2 stage trigger lower parts kit) and get a good barrel I would go with a les Baer bolt and receiver. Not to say anything bad about bushmaster but my build is the best I've ever shot. and I now do custom builds for others.

    Well my first one I put together my lower and thats one reason I wanted a complete ar but if the difference in bang for my buck is worth it ill try to look at it. Any good website that you guys who do this often would suggest or do I need to go to each products respective websites? Would love to be able to go and find a good high quality selection of parts on one website and be able to make one order!

    Also on my first build the lower was tough at a few points but I'm wondering if its because I got what I payed for, or is it going to be more difficult with a more expensive lower due to it being milled tighter?

    just a few.

    so what points did you find hard? it could of been just how you were doing a certain task, or the tools used. its worth your money becase you can pick what parts you want.
