    any more details? we have a good stickie you should read. its a called an AR primer.
    what type of hunting are you wanting to do?
    what type of courses?
    an AR optimized for one of those choices will probly not be very good for the other.

    and in this current buying craze, often its buy what you can, when you can.

    Colt is my first choice, of those listed.

    I love SIG, but IIRC, the SIG AR15 is a piston weapon which would lessen it's appeal for me.

    I have many opinions. Anyways, since HK is not on the list, I would buy a Colt. Hk and colt have worked together on the SFs rifles, so I am sure this reflects on colts newer civilian rifles. Sig Sauer has issues with FTF and breakage of arts. My local German gun store has verified this fact. They have talked me into buying the HK MR instead of the Patrol. I have practiced with a Blackout, it is also a good weapon.

    Have you read the stickies in the AR section of the forum?

    Right now is the worst market possible to purchase an AR. Everything is overpriced. It almost made me feel guilty for how much I sold a used polymer lower for... almost.

    Bushmaster works pretty good for me

    I've run about 2,500 rounds through my with very little issues... I don't run any Russian steel case ammo. Its not a real good time to be buying though you could very easily pay twice the price in this market... but then again better get one before they're gone and you can't get one for any price:eek:

    I have a Del-ton Echo 316/moe and its a fine AR. Very reliable and capable of sub moa accuracy. http://www.del-ton.com/DTI_16_Carbine_MOE_Rifle_p/rfth16-moe.htm

    I gave way less than MSRP for mine and its worth every penny. Check out the technical specs and you will see what you are getting. Del-ton also offers lower priced and higher priced rifles. They have one for every budget and need it seems.

    I have a Colt 9620 on order. I don't mind waiting, and the price quoted was reasonable, in the $1300 area.
