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

Best AR for under $1,500 ?

RR,

I'm gonna follow-up with Mike.

After looking over his site, it seems like the "best" way to go for me !


I kinda need someone who can walk me through the entire process.


I have a lot of questions !!!

Thanks again for the recommendation !

Another that would recommend talking with Mike at D-Tech..I've got 3 of his uppers including a 23" + D-tech comp. fully fluted in .204 Shilen barrel, a 20" fully fluted .223 Shilen, and a 22" + D-tech comp. fully fluted Shilen .243 wssm. As has been stated, Mike knows AR's and builds'em as good or better than most. Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to.

Most important thing on the lower is the trigger. A guy could put a piece of tape over the maker of most lowers and most of us wouldn't be able to tell who the maker was of each.

Jeepkid,

I had to look back - and of course you're right (I guess I just had it in my head that it was RR, once you said, "RR's buddy").

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

My bad...............sorry big guy !!!


RR - I told Mike that you referred me (10% off on your next purchase - LOL).


Thanks again to all concerned !!!

This will be a Christmas gift.................for myself, of course.

Have not drawn up everything as of yet, but discussed the basics.

Coyote & ground squirrel rig (Light enough to use as a walking stick also).

So, .223 flat-top with a 18" fluted Shilen match stainless barrel, 1-10 twist, free floated tube, tuned Rock River two stage trigger, stripped lower (yet to be determined), magpul telescoping stock and grips.

Thinking about putting a Vortex Viper 6.5X-20X 50MM with "dead-hold" BDC reticle on it ???

We have not written it up yet, so no idea how long the wait is going to be ?
