    So a friend of a friend wants to sell this AR w/ a scope for $500. I don't know much about ARs so what brands should I be looking for for that price?

    $500 for any complete AR is a pretty good deal.

    Even if it is an a2 configuration it will run you 100-130 to convert the rifle to a flat top by reusing the barrel and changing the upper. I did it myself. :)

    Well think of it this way -- you're getting a complete rifle for what some of us will pay for just the upper assembly.

    Most bargin bin rifles will cost 700-800 bux if you're not picky.

    Hell I'd buy it right now.

    I'm going to be more of a pessimist than everyone else and say you can get a real piece of crap for $500. When CMMG is selling quality stuff for $570, I'd be picky with what it is.
