Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

Best AR for under $1,500 ?

Sheridan, are you still in Cali? If so, make sure your lower is an "off-list" and that you use some type of fixed magazine system...

Jeepkid,

Thanks for your concern/reply !

I know I have some challenges in that regard..................."the land of fruits & nuts".


Appreciate any advice with putting a complete upper and lower together.

This is the one I am looking at;

Jeepkid,

So, I assume you feel you made a good decision ?


Who's upper's do you like +/- $800 ?

Well my lower is a CMMG, but is has Rock River parts with a 2-stage NM trigger so its not quite the same as the one your looking at...

I went with a Bushmaster Varminter upper, the 24" fluted model. And got a good deal on it, about $550 if I remember right...super accurate if my scope wasn't a POS!

The first is an Oly so that should be a shooter!

The second, Wilson Combat, I've heard of but don't know anyone with one...

You might check with RR's buddy, Dedicated Technologies, he's suppose to make a great upper!
