    I have about 600 to spend on a new rifle. Any suggestions, mostly a home defense gun, but would like something fun to take to the range as well.

    Not really thinking shotgun, more assault rifle, maybe like AR or AK.

    Lol, I didn't know that the Bay Area Riders Forum had started a gun classified section.

    I believe the link he was thinking of was :

    www.ar15.com and look in the equipment exchange subforum.

    you can build them for that. Del-Ton or Model 1 Sales sell the parts (presumably not lifted too badly lately on prices) where you can still do it. It's not going to be anything super spectacular like the barfcommers INSIST is the only way to go. But I've got a M1S 16" carbine that cost ~$550 and it's flawless and have never had a problem

    Henderson Defense does Century/DCIs for $560, I dunno what their stock is like, but if I was determined to keep it under $600, that would probably be my best bet. HDI does test all theirs for keyholing.

    :rofl: I so wish I'd hung onto those loaded 4 mag EG pouches I picked up from Northridge for like $11/per pouch. :wtc:

    Tantal a little over $600 but you would make up the price difference when buying a case of ammo
