Starting to get in the market for an AR. looking at approx. 800 to 1200 out the door. I am pretty sure I want a midlength 16 in but am open to suggestions. I guess the big question is RRA, bushmaster, etc. The rifle will be used for FUN, TARGET, 3 GUN COMPS. and Rifle competitions.

Thanks guys, The only thing I would change on that link would be the stock want the 6 position calapsible stock. Right now I am borrowing a Bushy and other than the aluminum free float barrel it is a good rifle. I have noticed that I would want to have a flip front and rear sight just in case I run a red dot, halo sight, or scope. I have been looking at RRA
and bushmaster http://www.rockriverarms.com/item-d...age=06ela4.gif&CFID=10687553&CFTOKEN=88019550 I think this is something that I am looking at but with Green Furniture.

At 50 yards, why are they not all in the same hole? :lol:

I just got a DPMS 16" a couple weeks ago and I couldn't be happier. It was a little cheaper than most.

Fired a couple boxes thru it last weekend and I love it.

This is the one I got but ordered it thru a FFL and got it for $800 out the door.

I think you'll be happy with whatever you get. They all wouldn't be big names unless they made a lot of people happy.

My favorite AR is my RRA lower with 6 postion stock topped with a Bushmaster 16" disapater upper with detachable carry handle. Best of all worlds!:mrgreen: I use this for 3gun matches.

I was looking at the Rock River. I really wanted one but I got a deal on a DPMS I couldn't refuse. I've been happy with it. No complaints other than a buddy who has a Bushmaster.. He gave me crap, maybe he's just mad cause he over paid for his. Bushmaster is a fine gun but so is colt and I don't own ethier.

What no gratuitous posting of the Chart? You guys are slackin'

For your use, RRA, STAG, DPMS (lesser of the three) will all fir the bill. But as noted before, BRD strikes and there is no cure.
