    Im looking to get an ar. I was looking at the s&w mp 15 sport model and it was on sale for 750!!$ it is a really nice rifle for the money a trusted american made rifle it had everything you need, back up sights, and p mag it did not have a forward assist ,or a dust cover but thats okay i guess but i was wondering is there any other good quality rifles under 800$ what other brand named rifles fall into this category?

    Palmetto state armory or stag arms.
    If I ever buy an AR its gonna be one of these three

    The Sport is a pretty good AR but trust me it's not "on sale" at $750! People often have reported sales of $650 and under.

    At the sub-$800 price point I'd recommend PSA. For the last year they've been the AR bang for the buck leader.

    Another option is to put that $800 back in the sock drawer and save another $250-$300 and get a Colt.:)

    My first owned AR is a DPMS. The older ones suck. Hence all the bad reviews. The new ones are good. But watch out on prices. I got my AP4 for $685. At gun shows I see them for $750.

    Mine is now customized. And for those who say a DPMS bcg is not staked. Get some glasses. Mine is and correctly.

    Many good rifles out there.

    I am currently building a new one.

    $750 is definitely not on sale. Got mine on Black Friday for less than $600. I should have bought two!

    Do some research on Windham weaponry.. Colt has a good name and I have one but my Windham shoots just as good if not better. I've had my Windham for around 5 months and have never had anything go wrong.

    Mossburg MMR Tactical AR15 is worth a look in my opinion, great reviews online. I looked everywhere at every AR model under $850, I almost went with Windham until I went to the range and just loved how my buddies new Mossburg was dead on accurate and that Quad Rail makes it a nice looking rifle too, (didn't like the gas block setup on the Windham and have read that they get very hot) I ordered mine without sights because I prefer magpul flip up sights with my Reddot scope. Got mine for under$800. Just a thought.

    Yeah the mmr is a nice one I work part time at academy sports in the gun dept, only one day a week to keep my 20 percent discount but anyway I did some research on the mmr and it's supposedly a great rifle for the money, I wouldn't mind trying one out
