    I want an AR, but not more than $700 worth of want. I've seen some for around this price, but I don't know how to check out a used one. What should I be looking for, and what brands should I not consider?

    Oly plinker. No frills. Low price. Pretty accurate. You don't have to "build" it. Not most THR members 1st choice for sure.

    You can buy a DPMS fully assembled lower for around $205

    You can buy an upper from a number of reputable firms (J&T, Model 1, etc) for between $400-500.

    Push 2 pins together and you have an AR...easily for $700.

    My local shop sells DPMS M4geries for $699 (A2) or $750 (A3). I bought one and was very pleased. This was last year, but I believe they are still the same price.

    Stay away from kits (with the exception of CMMG).


    Only option in that price range would be DPMS. Used, you could find a Bushmaster or RRA.


    If this is a range toy, the above options should be fine. If this is for business, get an AK.


    See, to get a good AR, takes a certain amount of $ and that's just how it is. The same is true of an AK or any other platform. The thing is that for less money, you can get the best example in a different platform. You can get a very good AK for $700. You cannot get a very good AR for $700.


    It's always better to have the best example within a platform than a lesser example in another platform. That's my belief.

    Old picture. Now it has a POSP scope on it.

    Yeah, but the Saiga is a conversion. I'm speaking of stock rifles here.


    I have a Saiga. I'll be the first to say it is THE best AK money can buy, even if it be cheaper - so long as you convert it.


    Barrel on the Saiga is unmatched, not by Arsenal, not by anyone else. Everything about it is quality.


    Such an example doesn't exist in the AR world.
