    You can own as many as you can afford.

    Well that probably depends on your state and the legality of forming militias.

    Does it seem like a reasonable price for the gun?

    Yeah, that's probably the cheapest you'll find an already built AR.

    I have seen some of these and they are beat to hell. $550 isn't that good of a deal considering we can build you the same 16" rifle for around $700 with chrome lines barrel and all new parts

    yea, based on the low-grade parts, it doesn't seem worth it.

    One guy on ARF got a pretty sweet rifle from the hand-picked selection actually.

    CMMG complete lower - $225
    CMMG 16" chrome lined M4 upper - $500
    Complete rifle - $725

    CMMG has a little better quality than Del-ton, RRA, and stag

    True, I didn't realize you could get CMMG stuff that cheap.

    What, on that page, makes you think that they used low-grade parts on those rifles?

    they flat-out say non-chrome-lined, and it's comprised of crap like olympic arms. He also states they're beat to shit.

    For $150 more you can build a good CMMG - brand new.

    So if YOU (you guys) were going to build an "economical" AR-15 (for the fun of shooting it, and because who knows how long it is until an assult wepons ban is brought back into play) what would you build?

    If I was going to build, I'd do that CMMG build suggested in this thread. If I wanted to buy a prefab, then I'd get a S&W MP15T.

    Honestly CMMG is a great brand. You could go more expensive with Colt but not really worth it, RRA and Stag are on the bottom of the quality list but CMMG is right in the middle. I myself have 3 CMMG uppers, our biggest sellers are CMMG uppers and we never hear any complaints about them. They are accurate, can shoot 556 or 223, chrome lined, and accurate. As far as length I like the 14.5/14.7 uppers but some people like the 16". If you are going precision get 20"+ but if you want a home defense gun and something that could be used in a tactical situation go with 14.5-16" uppers.

    As far as lowers again just g with CMMG. I have had fitment problems with Stag but for the most part Stag ok lowers. CMMG stripped down lowers are about $110 and the quality/fitment is excellent.

    Yes you can do a prefab but you pay a lot more and you loose out on building it yourself. We sell prefabs but always try to educate people and get them to build their own.

    I like CMMG, but your placement of them versus RRA/Stag in terms of quality is incorrect. That's your preference, and that's fine, but the quality of the three manus you just listed is all dead even at the very least.

    It really isn't only my placement though many dealers prefer CMMG over RRA and Stag. It really is a personal choice but we are not someone who sees 1 or 2 uppers we see hundreds and our experience have been CMMG has better quality control and build. CMMG also has the 1/7 twist and RRA has 1/9. I mean we sell all three and make more off RRA but we prefer to sell CMMG.
