Been lurking in Blackrifles for a while. Thought by reading everything I can, I would have a revelation & understand everything AR there is to know. Not working for me yet. Been a pistol shooter for many years & think it's time I get an AR & join some of my buddies. I'm interested in bench shooting 100-200yds. I would use a scope because my old eyes wouldn't allow me to shoot the small groups I'd strive for. .223 cal, & 18-20 " barrel.1:9 or 1:8 twist. A decent trigger. Probably will only shoot 100-150 rounds a month. Don't want chromed barrel I think. Maybe SS. Probably A2 buttstock. Maybe this ,but a little expensive...RRA...http://www.rockriverarms.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_id=228 or this...STAG...STAG ARMS Model 6 (Super Varminter)..longer barrel than I really want/need. Would really like to shoot sub MOA...Is it possible for around $1000 or less. By the way, I reload. Bud's is out of stock on a Doublestar DSC Super Match $ 889. Is it junk? The other consideration is to build. I'm fairly handy, but don't know where to start. Too many choices. It would probably be easier buying a complete lower & complete upper. I'm not sure. Don't want to pay for stuff I don't need like carry handle, sights, etc. Am I expecting too much? Any suggestions?
