I finally decided on owning an AR15, even though I live in California. I currently own a xd9 and mossberg 590. I figured both of these weapons i currently own, are more than adequate for HD. But now, I want one for recreational use. So my search has begun and after taking the time in reading about AR's on reliablility and accuracy on different threads I've finally chosen my set up.

the complete set up is between $1,300.00-$1,400.

I was debating between BCM, but decided to go with DD.
Any thoughts on my selection? thank.

Sounds good. The only odd bit is the front fixed sight post. Since you'll have a folding rear sight with the MBUS, you should put a folder (or a gas block with a bit of rail) on the front. That way, if you ever want to stick a scope on there, you can fold down or remove the front sight and have a clear field of view.

Usually a fixed front sight is matched with a carry handle or rear fixed (yet detachable) irons.

Lots of people run a fixed front sight with a folding rear and a red dot sight. The front sight really doesn't get in the way, especially if you're using a proper lower 1/3 co-witness mount for your red dot. Nothing wrong with a folding front, but it's certainly not necessary.
