    A couple of ARs are for sale on my local board. I don't REALLY have the money to get into the AR scene right now (like that's ever stopped any of us), nor are either of these my ideal builds. That said, if either of them are sensational deals, I might jump on it. Both have been up for sale for quite some time, so I'd imagine they might have some wiggle room on the price.

    Option #1 - $650
    Option #2 - $700

    I'd pass on #1 but I'd be all over #2, especially if you can get him down another 100 bucks or so...

    Yeah, that's kinda what I had been thinking too. If it was a 16" barrell, I'd be all over it. Not sure if I want the full size, and I could do without the green furniture.

    You're locking into having that gigantic worthless handle on top. if you really want a handle you can buy one to attach to the flat top, then when the day comes you finally decide its a gigantic worthless handle you can easily pull it off and put a flip up sight, eotech, aimpoint, etc on top.

    Yeah...makes sense. I'll admit I've got a lot of research to do before pulling the trigger (awful pun intended).

    Truth. I got lucky and sold the upper on arf for 80 bucks so the conversion only cost me 40 but still.
