OK, so I find myself in the market for an AR. I was looking to spend less than 1k. I was even looking to build one myself. But I stumbled upon this - http://palmettostatearmory.com/1754.php Not EXACTLY what I was looking for. I was leaning toward a mid-length at 18", and iron sights/carry handle. Primary duties would be paper punching and a go-to-rifle. No HD really, as I'm in an urban environment and own plenty of 12ga's. I know it blows my budget, especially when it does not include optics or sights... But it seems like a great deal - anyone care to talk me out of it before I anger my wife? Any way to build a mid-length with similar features/trigger for under 1k? =) Thanks, Anthony Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
