What would you recommend if it's something I'd like to take to the range. Where would I even start?
First of all the $700. gun is not a $1200.00 gun. Here is a post that lists what is needed for a top of the line AR. the S@W is not a top of the line gun due to the quality of its parts . there are AR15s built with bolt action steel and AR15s built with machine gun steel.
Also this is a nice info link on the basics of care and feeding the AR. There is some opinion but it is still good info .
Only you can chose what level or AR quality you want to buy. So far S@W has a good customer service warranty reputation,I have used it 2 years ago. Not on an AR though.
Daniel Defense and Bravo Company are the best rifles on the market for the best price. Machine gun steel at a bolt action steel price!! Has a ring to it eh!!!
