    If you had $1500-$2000 to spend on an AR, what would you be looking for?

    If I had $2000 to spend on AR's I would build 3 myself......a simple k.i.s.s 5.56 house carbine, a 6.8 SPC Hunter and a 20" 5.56 varmiter. Buying one just makes you want to have more..... :supergrin:

    Need more details, as that still leaves a lot of options open. I'd suggest reposting this in the Black Rifle forum, as you will get more replies from people that know ARs than you will in GFF.

    If I was spending your money, Daniel Defense, Aimpoint, ammo.

    That should pretty much take care of your $2K.

    Eh, I'd build a couple with that cash but if had to buy a new, complete AR, I'd like to add a Colt LE6920, just because. It's well under your budget figures.

    Set aside about $480 for some bulk ammo, PMAGS, a decent sling and a couple ammo cans.

    My la Rue 556 shoots 1/2 to 1 moa all day long, and closer to 1/2. Easily the accurate ar I've ever shot.

    Shh someone will come on here telling the OP to buy a S&W Sportical or something soon enough and all the reasons why paying more than $565 is a waste of money.

    You should buy a S&W M&P 15-Sport. You don't need to spend $2K on a rifle because a S&W M&P 15-Sport is as good as any over priced $2K rifle. :psycho:

    J/K. Your high budget limit of $2K + your stated intent to compete in 3-gun matches indicates to me that the capabilities of the S&W M&P 15-Sport are not congruent to your needs.

    For a bloke like me who plinks away at a range, it's just fine.
