If its your first one I recommend getting a .223 bushmaster. Or colt makes a nice 9mm. The 7.62 is higher in price for both the gun and the ammo. After you shoot it and learn your gun the decide if you want the 7.62 aka. .308

BCM - Bravo Company Manufacturing 100% milspec in all respects.

LWRC - Meets or exceeds most milspec requirements plus they have so really unique features available.

Mossberg/Smith & Wesson/Remington/Colt paying for name.

Bushmaster/DPMS/Rock River hit and miss

Whole mess of high end customs that cost more than your car as well.

Double Star/Olympic/CIA junk

I agree. Say what you want about colt. Smith, sig or any of the other big names. You get what you pay for. When it comes to guns, quality is in the old gun makers. The big names, don't fall for that just buying a name crap

All r's are exactly the same parts colt has a bigger furring pin that is the only one different they all are mill spec. M4 could put them all in a box all apart all different parts and they all are the same military spec.guns..except for colts fording pin.not sure why but it is bigger and wont interchange .... your buying the name that's the facts on a m4 (ar-15)

For the money... Which is what you asked... Buy a bushmaster... End of discussion.... Obviously Colt is the way to go if youve got 1500 layin around..... If youre gonna spend that kinda money just do us all a favor and save for a few more months and buy a Sprinfield M1A1 scout..... Thats gonna hit ya about 2200.... But it is the rifle to own.... Trust me

all gun makers are getting away from making the same design. Everybody from sig down to high point are making a different design. The m4 that you talk about is a bushmaster design and it is mil spec. The AR 15 is a completely different gun now. If you want to get you money back and have a gun that will not jam and minimal maintenance.... Then yes colt is the best and bushmaster holds a close second. Ruger makes a nice SR 556 but is really heavy. And gas operated . Not a good combo. If your going to spend the money then get one you know you can count on

I am in the market for my "first" AR and have roughly $1000 to spend (old retired guy). Should I buy the upper & lower of some brand to avoid the excise tax or just belly up and pay for the entire piece? I'm from the old school and shot & loved the old M14, USMC 1963. I appreciate any and all knowledgeable responses.

The only advantage to an ar15 is all the accesories you can attach to it. They are all over priced mediocore rifles. The accuracy is nothing special and reliability is not there. Not many people know that there are very few companies that make their own parts. They buy from only a few gun manufacturers then stamp their name to it and jack up the price depending what name is attached. Of course some are lower quality such as olympic arms uses the cheapest possible parts. Dont buy an AR15! You will get a better rifle if you find a nice AK47 or an M1

the ak47 is a much better rifle than the ar15 and its cheaper because there isn't as much hype around it. but any rifle from FN or Sig will be top notch.
