Re: Want an AR15, what's the best out of box?

Not rying to start an argument, but I do not put much stock in "The Chart", nor do most of the people I shoot with (and I shoot IDPA with some 3 . Calling them "hobby guns" is also kind of childish and petty. Many people shoot guns not on the chart for years in competition and do very well.

There are many fine rifles that are not on the chart, it's all about what you want to do with it.

For an affordable but quality rifle Stag or RRA are good manufacturers.

That said, if you want "mil-spec" and having one on the chart is important to you then by all means do it. It's not THAT much more expensive.

I had a 6920 that I sold during the 08 election because I got it cheap and made a killing, it was a great gun. I waited until the sell-off shortly after and bought a Stag model2 and an RRA Varminter, they are both good rifles but not on the chart.

You cannot however go wrong with a 6920.

Re: Want an AR15, what's the best out of box?

I haven't been here for some time been over at the 6.8 forums.

I don't know if you have decided on anything yet but you might want to consider building your own, they are very easy basically Legos for grownups. To build one you will need some basic mechanical inclination and about 100-150 bucks in tools, mainly for the upper assembly. Or you could buy a complete upper assembly and build your own lower about 30 bucks in tools. There are quite a few shops building high quality uppers with very reasonable price tags and all are Mil-Spec.

My first build took me 5 hours mainly because I kept taking it apart and re-assembling it. I was sure I was doing something wrong because it was so easy. I have since built 5 more and am now taking around 45 min from a box of parts to an assembled rifle with optics mounted and bore sighted. Not blowing my own horn just saying it is pretty easy. By the way all the my rifles are capable of sub MOA and are absolutely reliable. You'll want an assembly manual or a DVD which ever format you prefer. I use the "Complete AR-15 Assembly Guide" by Walt Kuleck with Clint McKee.

Below is a list of suppliers I have used most of them also offer complete uppers and rifles and all are exceptionally quality.
YHM, Yankee Hill Machine Co., Inc. | Makers of High Quality Firearms, Accessories & Sound Suppressors
Rainier Arms™ | Specialist in High End AR15s/M16s,Stocks,Grips,Parts,Accessories & much more
Ammunition, Magazines, Rifle Parts, Bulk Ammo and Rifle Accessories - Palmetto State Armory
Home
Del ton Rifle Kits & Del ton AR 15 Rifles | Gun Supplies & Gun Accessories from Del-ton, Inc.
Innovative Tactical Systems LLC, Made in USA, AR 15 uppers, piston operated tactical upper, 5.56, 6.8spc, custom precision barrels This guy is great
AR-15 Parts Including Complete Uppers, Lowers, Lower Parts Kits, Triggers, Magazines, and much more!
Spikes Tactical

There are a lot more but I would start with these. I would stay away from DPMS rifles unless you are willing to spend the money to replace most of the internal parts.

Here is a pic of my first build. If you need any more info PM me I'll be glad to help.
