Just bought my first AR and thought I would post a pick of it and get a feel for what you all think. Did I get robbed or as this right on?

I paid $1250 for it with all of the attachements already on it. In short it is a DD DDVX with the Earth Kit on it. I think it is a good deal, how about you all?

If you Like it you did NOT get burned.

Welcome to Calguns. It's up to you whether $1250 is worth it for an AR. Go out and shoot it and have $1250 worth of fun with it.

You did a pretty good deal on the DD - now it's time to stock up on ammo and mags.

Thanks guys, yea I might be have been able to build it cheaper but looking around at some of other dealers in OC, this is right what I wanted to spend and I think it's worth it.

I will report on the shots when I get some range time with it.

Any hints on a good deal on some ammo?

Hello and welcome, nice rifle!

nice rifle. Big 5 actually had pcm brand .223 ammo on sale the other day, not sure if they still do. It was a buck or so cheaper than ammo bros. If you got the extra cash, go for a whole case and save yourself a few bucks per box! Welcome!

Get yourself a reloaders press and save yourself even more money after you collect up some brass and all the other components necessary.

let me expand on my question then, what brand of ammo do you all prefer? Keep in mind that this also has a 1/7 twist vs. some others that have a 1/9 twist.

Hey welcome to calguns! I prefer to shoot either pmc or reloads for the price but it really depends on what you want to do with your gun. Is this just for fun shooting, home defense, or precision?

For now it will be fun shooting till I get it all dialed in, I guess 1000 rounds at least.

Next I would required some home defense ammo, like I have my HJP for my pistol.

With that title, I thought you were fishing with a Destructive Device like a grenade, lol.
