I'm currently trying to decide on whether or not to buy an Adams Arms AR-15. It's the base model. There are some blems out there for a good price right now. http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/411555894 The other option is to buy a palmetto state armory rifle kit and lower and put it together. http://palmettostatearmory.com/psa-...e-13-5-lightweight-moe-freedom-rifle-kit.html The Adams is a piston driven rifle which isn't a positive or negative to me. They would come out to around the same price after shipping/FFL fee. I will most likely change out the hand guard to a Samson Evo on the Adams Arms if I go that route. Thanks for any help. I've been looking at AR's for over a month and still can't come to a decision.
