    Several M&P rifles. The Sort can be bough for $600 + or - and leaves nothing needed behind.

    If your gonna spend less than $900 I suggest in high regards the M&P15 Sport. I am very impressed with mine. Great rifle.

    If you can find a Stag in your price range, get it. You will not be disappointed with Stag.

    S&W M&P. I was going to get one until they sold out @ my LGS. A lot of rifle for the money.

    Don't get an Olympic. I sighted in one for a neighbor, all I could get was a 3-4 inch group at 30 yards, and was almost out of adjustment on the windage to do that. :p

    Stay away from this ^^^^^ some have problems some dont , stay with a aluminum receiver and it will out last you .
    For the money your looking to spend its going to be hard to beat the PSA for quality . I own 3 PSA rifles and they will eat what ever you put to them , steel or brass, I have had no issues with any of them and I have one rifle thats had over 6000+ rounds thru it
    The first rifle I put the link to will leave you room in $$$ for a scope , RDS and ammo . now go get it ;)
    Heres what I suggest , this one will come ready to shoot , iron sights and a bargain price compared to some of the other crap that out there .
    $719

    Little more money but yet still a fine rifle and in your budget , MOE gear $799
    http://palmettostatearmory.com/inde...-16-premium-moe-carbine-dissipator-rifle.html


    Little bit more $$$ but still affordable and you get a RDS optic with a no frill lifetime warranty $899

    Avoid the carbon 15. Go with the S&W m&p 15. A friend of mine just bought one for $700. Only features missing was the forward assist, and the dust cover. ( who really ever uses either anyway. )
    $700 bucks and you got yourself a damn fine AR. Cheers.

    M&P 15 Sport is the very most in value at around $650. I've been looking for one for months. But nobody has them right now. Doesn't have a dust shield or forward assist, and I'm glad it doesn't. Smith &Wesson is way behind on this model. Eventually production will catch up. Then I'll spring for one. I refuse to pay an inflated price from Gunbroker.com etc.
    Here's an excellent 33 minute video review on it.

    If I had 2 to have one today, I'd buy complete. If you can wait: wait...demand has sky-rocked! Then, assemble your own.
