Well, I'm about to sound like a total noob...and well quite frankly I am when it comes to rifles. I want to pick up an AR here in probably a month but I have no idea where to start as in whats good/not good. I'm sure its probably better to buy your parts and build one yourself but I have no idea how so I'm just gonna buy one from the store. I'm looking to spend $800-$1200 and I know that isn't going to get me anything fantastic, but its a start. In that price range, what do you guys suggest I start to look at? I was probably going to go with .223 unless you all think there is something else I should go with?

I'm open to any suggestions good or bad. I currently own 3 guns...my 20 gauge shotgun my parents got me ages ago as a gift, my marlin .22, and my ccw gun, a springfield XD9 sub compact.

Thanks.

When it comes to AR's, ask the vendor if the rifle is Mil spec or Commercial spec. You want Mil spec simply because 90% of the parts out there are designed for Mil spec rifles so it will be easier to mod the gun if you decide to later.

Also your $800-$1,200 limit is too high. If you spend that much your stupid. AR-15's can currently be had for $600-$700. Don't be fooled by someone saying the big names are better and thus worth the extra money, all you are paying for is the name, that's it. There is only 4 companies that actually make the main parts of an AR, they just etch whatever companies name on the parts and charge extra. A $600 Delton will shoot just as good, be just as accurate, and be just as reliable as a $1,800 Colt.

If you're buying the gun, stick with .223. Other calibers that come in AR-15's require you build some and will be over your limit.

Where should I go to buy them for that price. I've only really looked at Academy's prices and most I see are well over the $600 price hence where I got the $800-$1200 range.

Academy is overpriced on their guns. Check you local gun shows and Walmart. Every Walmart near me has at least 4-5 AR's to choose from in that range.

The M&P 15 is a good place to start or if you want a higher quality, the Daniel Defense DDM4 or LMT Defender are good rifles.

Colt makes some good entry level AR's, as does Windham Weaponry. I personally would stay away from DPMS.

I do disagree with Draco that 800-1200 bucks is too high, but it really depends on how "basic" of a rifle you're looking for (he and I might have a different idea of "basic"). Like anything else, not all AR parts are truly equal. Some manufacturers really charge for the name (POF comes to mind), but some are better than others. Some come with different accessories, for instance the 1400 dollar Sig AR comes with a quad rail and flip up irons, instead of a plastic hand guard with no sights... etc etc.

It's REALLY easy to build an AR. Just start reading into it. We could help you with any questions.

That's what I thought. I don't want basic basic. I want a quality AR that isn't going to jam, fu*k up, ect but not buy one of those $2,000 one

If you guys point me in the right direction I'd definitely be willing to give it a shot.

You can buy both of these for about $100. You're really better off buying just a basic gun and then adding the things you want, you'll save money in the end.

Well that again depends on what you mean by basic. The majority of AR's sold aren't going to jam up unless you feed them crappy ammunition. For that matter, most of their parts won't wear much faster than others (except possibly barrels). Accuracy for example could be affected though, if the parts fit losely... but it still won't be terrible.

100 bucks? You're going to get a heavier crappy drop in 2 piece quad rail instead of a free-float, and polymer sights (although if you don't plan on ever dropping it, no big deal)... and still exceed $100. And sure, by "heavy" I mean another 6-8 ounces, but start adding 2 or 3 things that are 6-8 ounces heavier than a nicer piece... a 7 pound AR will turn into a 12 pound AR real quick.

I do agree that buying a basic gun and adding is a good idea in general, but the build quality of a basic gun is still different if you were to compare a "basic" DPMS to a "basic" Sig or a Colt. There is a reason DPMS rifles are as cheap as they are. Just like anything else, the materials used are cheaper, allowing for a cheaper rifle. Tolerance is looser on the parts. The Wal-Mart Sporticle has no chrome-lined barrel, no forward assist, no sights, no case deflector, and a plastic handguard, and it costs about 700 dollars (not on sale). That's bare-bones basic, and you'll ultimately spend just as much adding or replacing those things as you would if you just spend the extra 200-300 dollars in the first place. DPMS used just as an example, because I had one when I was younger. I would never buy another.


ETA: I should point out that things like chrome-lining are not necessary and are really a preference more than anything. A non-lined barrel will work great, and if cleaned properly. My preference for chrome lining is more prior military preference (they're easier to clean, and less prone to corrosion... both of which might not matter to another person).
