Ok, so i'll say up front that I am a newbie when it comes to AR-15's. I was hoping to get some advice on a few different models I am looking into and maybe some other recommendations. I've searched through hundreds of threads about this already, so I've done some homework. I'm looking to spend right around $1,000 or less on the rifle. Maybe $1,100 max. I first made the decision of the AR-15 over the AK-47 due to accuracy at long range. But I like the increased power in the 7.62 caliber vs the 5.56 on the AR. What are some thoughts on getting an AR-15 type chambered for 7.62/.308? Is this significantly less accurate than a 5.56? This in particular was the one I was looking at. Any comments on this particular one too would be helpful. M15 A4 7.62MM X 39 CARBINE, GREEN Range and accuracy are little more important to me though than power. So I wouldn't want to sacrifice too much of it for more power. Other ones I'm looking at our the following. And again, comments on these specific ones would be helpful Stag Arms: Stag Arms Rock River Arms: Any thoughts on this vendor. Do they make quality firearms? Rock River Arms: NEW! RRA LAR-15 Tactical Operator2 Bushmaster Bushmaster - Hunting Rifles So yeah, comments/experience with any of these (or particular brands would be great). Also, other reccomendations for a good AR-15 in my budget are appreciated.
