You get what you pay for when it comes to guns. You buy a cheap gun don't expect much out of it. I agree with the above poster, Bushmaster is a expensive but great brand.

They are good guns for the price. You can buy better brands such as colt, LMT, spikes tactical, and smith and wesson to name a few. Of course you're going to shell out more money though.

IMO Colt is over rated and over priced.
DPMS makes a good entry level rifle, and Bushmaster ORC
Can be had for $700 or so at Dunham's.

They suck for the price. If someone is wanting an AR without spending much their best bet is probably going to be a Smith and Wesson M&P 15 Sport.

It blows my mind that people still recommend DPMS or Bushmaster. There are so many better guns out there now, and it's a myth that you have to pay a lot more for them. Hell you can get a Smith & Wesson M&P 15 Sport for less than either one of those, and it's a a much better gun. Throwing $700 away on a piece of shit is just pointless.

I also wouldn't be asking for AR advice on Topix. Check out m4carbine.net or lightfighter.net . There is a ton of knowledge to be found there.

Wow, someone's gun grumpy today lol.
I've fired DPMS and BM and they have shot just as well as any other AR. And from what I understand their fit and finish is pretty nice compared to alot of more expensive "quality"
Guns. Most of the people who bash them have never owned one, or even know someone who owns one in some cases.

Agreed. Bushmaster used to be a good bargain, that is, until they were bought out by Cerebus (Remington's parent company.) I wouldn't buy anything they produce. All they do is lower the quality and invest more in advertising to raise profits.

I have heard good things about the S&W, as far as the price point is concerned. Are there better models out there? Absolutely, but you'll pay a lot more.

Build your own, its a lot cheaper. Check out gunbroker.com and some of the AR forums for deals. I built mine for under 600 with parts that were new, just someone couldn't finish there builds. Its always more fun after that first 30 round clip in a gun you BUILT, not BOUGHT.

My favorite is arma lite. You pay a little more but it is an awesome gun. Go to classic gun and pawn they have lay away. Buy the best you will not be disappointed!

Bravo company manufacturing , Noveske , LWRC , Patriot Ordnance Factory.

Bushmaster = Crap
DPMS = More Crap

Ar15's are like cars , DPMS is the chevy cavalier or the black rifle world , bushmaster would be the older body style malibu. Build the rifle , get better parts and don't overpay for some crap that bushmaster , del-ton , dpms , doublestar or olympic put out.

Most people dont have the money to jump into the AR game with the brands you named.
Jump into the game with a Rock River Arms. They make good ARs at a reasonable price. Colt, good product, overrated, If you can afford to get a P.O.F. I suggest doing so. I prefer gas piston systems over direct gas .

The OP is asking about CHEAP ar's, yet some of you have named the highest end, most expensive brands. If he could afford, or wanted to pay for those, he probably wouldn't have asked about the cheap ones.

There isn't really a price difference in junk and top of the line anymore. That's the point that people are missing because they won't do any actual research. Buying a piece of shit to save less than a hundred bucks doesn't make sense. The only "cheap" gun worth buying is the S&W Sport.
