I was wondering what you all might suggest for an
AR in .223/5.56 chambering under a $1000
NEW, not a build

I am looking for a plinking/target gun.

Save for a Daniel Defense or Colt at 1K you are almost there. Building a lower is not hard, you open a ton of options with BCM or Palmetto state armory.

If you are willing to build, you can come up with a very good AR.

But since you are not willing to do that, just stick with Stag. They will suffice.

Build. You can do it right and have a equivalent of a $1200 for around $8/900

If you are near San Jose I can get you a great deal on complete rifle from a local FFL for under $700.
PM me if you are interested.

Exactly!

Not sure what availability is, but they have great customer service and most people are very pleased with their Sports.

Also look in the Calguns marketplace, might be a deal or two in there.

I find them regularly at many places in Fresno, CA for about 750.
I'm building my first gun right now, got
New frontier stripped lower: 140 after taxes and crap
PSA Complete lower assembly from forums here for 115 shipped
havent got anything else yet, but if all works out, upper minus BCG for 300 and a spikes BCG for 120
total 675.

Spikes if you can find one in stock! Or the S&W M&P Sport.
