    The LW barrel on the Daniel Defense is going to make all the difference. You'll pay more than Spikes but DD all the way!

    Thanks so much for your input! I don't know enough about all the particular specifics yet for AR's. Just use to bolt action hunting rifles. Don't know where to start, soo much info. Need a basics 101 thread.

    Though I have enjoyed a SpikeTactical in the past the LW DD is my favorite. Not to make it more difficult but don't forget BCM.

    I think we all dream of rocking an OBR or Preda___ of some sort.

    I wouldn't necessarily pick a BCM over a DD but you could probably save yourself a couple bucks and BCM makes an outstanding rifle. I have one of each and would grab either on my way out the door.

    DD all the way. You will be paying more but great rifle and they just picked up the socom contract for the military which was once owned by colt.

    I also think you should throw BCM in the mix. Right there with DD but a little cheaper. Slightly more expensive than Spikes but better. You can get any rail you want, too.

    I guess I need to make things a little more clear after reading the other threads. My intention is not necessarily to hunt with this gun but more of a personal self defense with the ability to have good accuracy 100-200 yards. I'm 6'5" 260lbs so not real interested Ina real small compact gun. Budget about $1500 initial out of pocket and will build more onto later. Throw it at me now guys!! What do u recommend?
