Hi everyone, I've been trying to decide which rifle to get as my first one for quite a while. As i notice many of you guys actually build your own rifles, however since I don't have the time, nor the knowledge, I'm just going to purchase one. The main two brands I've been looking at and have researched are Bushmaster and Rock River. So my question is, Is it worth paying a little more for the Rock River and also wait a few months in order to receive it or should i just walk in the local gun shop and purchase the A3? I do own many handguns, but as i mentioned before this will be my first rifle. Any help is greatly appreciated!! P.S. My main concern is brand/quality/reliability rather than model. I know which model of each brand i want. I'm also open to other brands, so suggestions are welcomed!
