Re: AR-15 with my tax money...

Hey Briar Rabbit,

After reading this post, I ran a across something on another Forum that i thought might fit your needs. It's used but it looks to be a pile of rifle with a Leupy scope for $1250 shipped.

Just a thought,

2000 rounds is just broken in. If they were shot as fast as you can pull the trigger, might need a barrel and a bolt, the rest of it should run pretty nice.

If you have to replace the barrel or the bolt at 2k rounds you know you should have spent the extra $ and got a quality weapon.

If your looking for a used weapon try m4carbine.net, crap it really not tolerated over there

BCM guarantees their bolts for 15k
KAC says 19k on theirs
just for thought

'At the most' a bolt and a barrel. And like I said more than likely just broken in at 2000rds.

I try to replace the bolt when I replace the barrel, and always check headspace.

I would be willing to be that a 20" rock river arms predator pursuit rife would do everything he is asking and do it for much less than his 1500 dollar price point.

Re: AR-15 with my tax money...

I would build from scratch and get everything you want. For $1500, you could basically get premium everything. There are a lot of quality barrels out there for under $400. You can purchase a geissele trigger and lower parts kit for about $200. Stripped lower and upper receivers can be had for under $100 each. I should also mention that a lower that is $150 or $200 is no better than one that is blemished and on sale for $60.

As for your barrel length, I would personally go with 20". I originally purchased a Bushmaster Varminter (24" barrel). Great gun, but the barrel is just too long for my needs. I want something that is fast handling and easy to carry. 20" is about the best all around length. With that said, I am planning on building an 18" gun for my go to gun. I already have my long, heavy gun for bench work and prairie dogs, and I have my carbines for playing around. I figure 18" is about right for me. But, to each their own.
