Looking to purchase first AR

31 posts in this topic

So looking to purchase my first AR, price range is <$1k.  I thought I found a Colt M4 Expanse but sadly it was already sold, so now my options are the M&P15, some Windham and Diamondback Rifles, and I found a Troy CQB SPCA3 for $800.  Anyone have any recommendations or know any stores which may have Colts in stock? 
Also still 18 so can't buy a stripped lower and do my own build.

Have you considered building your own? Buy a complete bcm upper and pick up a stripped lower and you will have a really solid ar for sub $1000. Takes a whole half hour or so to put together

 

this signature exceeds the 15 character capacity count

Still 18 so I don't believe I can buy a stripped lower yet, if I was 21 I would just build my own.

Welcome. I never heard that there is a problem under 18 but I have no clue. I'd buy a lower and upper from PSA. Get on their mailing list and you need to move fast when you see something you like. It's easy to have a very nice AR in the sub $700 range. Also check out mewe and the marketplace here and consider buying used. Lots of people buy AR's and for some reason don't shoot them much.

All the sites I've gone on have said ATF requires you to be 21+ to buy stripped lowers simply because you can make it into an AR pistol.  I might just go with a M&P15 since Hague's is gonna sell them for $600 over Blackfriday weekend.

If you have to buy a complete rifle, I'd get a colt 6920 or similar model. Under a grand and a solid AR, plus resale value is excellent if you ever decide to sell it in the future.

I want to but can't really find any places here that have them or have them for a decent price.  Called Ottomanelli and their LE6920s are around $1200

You could try and wait for Black Friday. I went to the Heritage of Easton on Black Friday and picked up a S&W ar15 sport for under $600 about 2 years ago. Basic rifle but works like a champ. Never had any problems except normal human error.

      ok guys so I just finished buying all the parts to build my first AR, however I do not know how to put all the parts together. I'm looking for someone who can professionally help me put the gun together, I am obviously willing to pay. I would go to shop but I really want to learn how to put it together. I have spent a good amount of money and so I am looking for someone who has experience building. I live in North Jersey, area code 07022. I willing to travel thats not a problem for me! AR223 - 18inch barrel looking for accuracy!

      More nonsense from Dicks Sporting Goods.
      Their stock will hopefully plummet and they will go away for once and for all.

    • The seizure of the magazines was discussed thoroughly in the thread.  Read my responses there and we can continue that discussion in that thread. To respond to two points that haven't been discussed to death: 1.  The police are not a delivery service.  You offer no rationale why they should be. 2.  Transfer of the magazines from the seized property room to the original owner is not an exemption under the law.  Not saying I agree with the law.  You need to read it. 3.  Reaching? You're claiming there are no gun owners who habitually use marijuana?  That they could get away lying on the application because they never were caught?  Based on the number of people who are for recreational marijuana just on this forum you need to open your eyes.
