AR-15 Question

1411 Views 7 Replies 0 Participants Last post by  Parrishco
So Im about to get a Ar-15 - I think the M4 version. A3 flattop. The question is anyone have advice or reccommendations? I also want to get an EOTech. My local gunstore has a bushmaster A3 without the attachable carry handel for $850 and the Eotech for $300 and the attachable flip up iron sight for $110. Are these average prices? Is the 16" barrel better than a 20". No, I am not a mercinary.

Seems like good prices. Have you looked at Rock River? I am a BIG fan of their Entry Tactical. That is what I own, and It is a machine.
The prices are about right, you might find the sights cheeper online, but the rifle and eotech sound ok. As for the barrel, 16" is fine for a gun you just shoot for fun, if you were going to use it for varmint hunting, or 3-Gun matches then I would go with the 20" barrel.
OS - I did look into RRA which is what I was originally going to get but its only $15 cheaper and comes with a two week order wait. Bushmasters are in stock.
I would go for the Bushmaster. I build my guns but Bushmaster is a good gun too.

Tell the gun shop you will by the rifle but you want $20 off of the site. If they dont go for it buy just the rifle and get a cheaper sight online.

Here is one for $99 shipped...

$63.95 shipped...
I'm the guy who has to have something RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

if I buy it I want it yesterday

I ordered my RRA Entry Tactical it took one month and that was to get a chrome lined barrel

I'm glad I was able to wait it's a great weapon and a keeper

seem like everyone has a bushy and thats fine great gun I just like to have something a little different and equal or better quality

you cant go wrong with either one

buy rounds by the thousands you will need them!!!!!!!!!
