I bought a Rock River Arms NMA4 for $915. It was guaranteed to shoot 3/4"moa - mine does less than 1/2" moa. It has a 20" air gauged stainless bull barrel, NM front & Rear sights (you can choose a smaller .030 hooded aperture for no additional cost) , excellent NM 2-stage trigger, Hogue rubber finger grooved grip, thermo-mold free-float handguard, (2) 20 rd, mags, a hard case, sling, and detacheable carry handle. There is absolutely NO PLAY between the upper and lower receivers, and the finish is the best I've ever seen in a "black rifle". I love it. The wait is longer than 5 wks - mine took almost 12 weeks because RRA was awarded two federal contracts that they are busy filling - one for 5000 rifles for the DEA, and the other for the FBI. So in my opinion, and with the experience that I've had with my rifle, I think RRA is probably the best deal available for the price. To get a rifle at dealer cost however, you must know a dealer who is willing to give you a copy of his FFL and let you order the gun and have it shipped to him. Most FFL dealers today, unless they are a friend, won't do this because they won't make a ton of money selling you the gun! Otherwise my gun would have cost me $1215, stil not bad considering what I got - a match grade AR-15 that no AK ever made will touch as far as accuracy.

But i have never been the fan of the ar-15 and always believed that ak 47's were just more rugged, easier to maintain and never once thought abouy puchasing one.
I couldn't disagree with you more. I don't believe that a receiver made of stamped sheet metal and spot welded together is anywhere near as rugged as a solid aluminum forging. Maintenance IMO is actually easier on an AR because of the modular design of the AR. An AR can be field stripped in about 15 seconds. Additionally, after you shoot one and compare your group sizes, you'll see for yourself that there is no comparison as far as accuracy. For CQB purposes the AK is on top, for target shooting or competitive shooting there's a good reason you never see AK's on the firing line!
