There are legions of happy owners out there who would gladly buy a second.

See how upset this guy is that I'm not impressed with his rifle? Talk about triggered.

Spend the money on a Daniel Defense, eventually buy a new trigger preferably a Giessele.
Sure, if you like a loose fitting AR that rattles when you shake it, buy a dd. Just my experience from the one I owned for a week and the other I picked off the shelf. Pretty sad for a 1600 AR.

I bought a new LWRC-DI for $980 and it's the most I've spent on a modern sporting rifle and worth it. With that being said buy a S&W M&P15 for $600 and spend the rest on ammo, you'll probably want to buy another one or build one in the future.

No rattle with mine. Just wicked badassery. Aside from the flyer, these were all 1 to 2" groups @ 100yrds with no magnification, stock trigger, and so-so ammo off the hood of my Jeep.

Those holes look like they were made with a sharp stick. just kidding, good shooting.

There are a lot of great deals out there for rifles at the $1000 mark and below.
CBC has a pretty good selection .
I have not bought a ready built rifle in over ten years. But I have built a few. I have a complete Troy upper and everything els to build one this weekend that will end up costing me under $600.

When you build the options or more then you can count.

I have to agree with the build it model. A decent lower can be put together for $300, and $700 can buy one heck of an upper, but OP asked about complete rifles, some guys just like that sort of thing, and I guess it makes sense if there is a chance he will sell it in the future.

Those look about like what I got from my DD barrel off the front hood of my Jeep JKU. Once I replaced that sloppy barrel with a Criterion those groups tightend up quite a bit. Like under 1 moa tight.

Weird thing is I have a DD 14.5" that is quite good.

Thanks for all the input. I think I am going to go an entry level as my first AR and upgrade change it as I learn more about it or find I want something different.

I am seriously leaning towards this PSA, I think it looks like a great deal.

I have 2 of those freedom complete upper barreled receivers. They work just fine, never had any issues.
