Alright, so I'm fairly new to the AR world. I've been researching a lot lately for a pretty long time and just can't decide. I'm looking for a stock, bare bones AR to start learning the fundamentals on. I want to possibly start building my own in the future, farther down the line. But I'm just looking for something to shoot for now that I may build onto later. I want a 20 inch barrel, flip up iron sights, rails, and a decent mount. I don't want to pay much for it since it will be my first and I plan to buy another somewhere down the road. I'd be willing to spend 800$ or so on this AR but like I said, down the road I will be willing to buy or build more costly ARs. Sorry for this sloppy post, I've been up all night doing research. In Ericks description of you he mentions archery... I would also like to talk to you about that later on in PM's if you'd be willing. Thanks again.
