    rifle is just for fun, and first rifle. not exactly sure what to get so many goddamn options.
     
  3. Are you looking for a really lightweight rifle? Do you want to plink with iron sights, or are you looking to put a scope on it? Do you want to festoon it with all manner of gadgets, or do you want to keep it simple? Once we get a better idea of exactly what you're looking for people will be able to give you more relevant advice.

    Have to throw down my usual plug for www.adsrifles.com, but Delton, Stag, CMMG are all good options as well.
     
  6. You can get an upper shipped to you, the lower is the serial numbered part and needs to be done through a FFL.

    That's because I don't subscribe anymore, I just cleared it out my inbox however.

    ADS is a new-ish (about 2 years in business) PHX local company that hand assembles CMT/Stag hardware. Fit and finish is great, parts are all mil-spec. Everything on mine has been flawless and it runs as smooth as glass.

    IMO they are one of the best "bang for the buck" AR manufacturers out there. I picked my complete ADS-Basic rifle for $849 from a local fun store.

    I'd just give them a call during the business week and tell them what you want, but email probably works too.

    I bought everything for my AR, including a complete upper, via Jimmy Pop Cornholio. He did good business with me.

    The upper I got came from DTI and is 14.5" w/perm flash hider (to make the legal 16"), 1:9, chrome-lined, flat-top, completely assembled. I forgot what I paid, but it was a lot less than $700.

    Talk to him.
