Re: cheap ar

For a little more you could get into a BCM upper and have a great AR. Palmetto has the specs most look for, however they are lacking in the assmebly dept...trust me I know..

As far as cheap fun at the range its hard to beat a WASR. and requires much less maintainence than an AR.

DelTon, Model1sales, ther are others as well.
I've had surprisingly good accuracy out of M1S stainless .223 chambered rifles in 8" twist. Shocking accuracy in fact.

Re: cheap ar

I wouldn't buy a polymer AR lower from Plum crazy. I've heard of failures.

The Carbon 15 <Bushmaster gun is probably legit, but IMO why not just use a 7075 forged lower? <weight isn't significant.
