I'm looking for an AR in the $750 or less price range, and I'm a real "bang for buck" shopper. Unfortunately that gets me into trouble sometimes, like recently I've had a bad experience with an AR produced by a local machine shop but I am getting a full refund so no more local brands for me, I'm going to stick with name brands. I'm looking for a 16". A3, carbine or mid length gas system. I prefer lightweight barrels and don't really care for the M4 profile but I understand that is 90% of what is out there unless I build my own, so that's probably what I'll wind up with. I'd really like a chrome or WASP bore and a gas block rail rather than front sight but none of these are deal breakers. I just missed a CMMG bargain bin special where they were selling scratch/dent m4 or mid length W.A.S.P. barreled ARs for $599! CDNN also had some good deals in their current catalog but they are sold out. Any other respectable bang-for-buck web deals out there? Should I just keep my eye out for the CMMG bargain bin again?
