The first one is the Bushmaster M4A3 Patrolman's Carbine and the other is the Colt LE6920 Carbine. I also am interested in the M4-A3 Patrolmans Carbine Quad Rail. I have heard that Colt and Bushmaster are both very good manufactures.
Colt LE6920 good choice. If you get a colt I recommend seeing if any walmarts are selling them cause most do sell Colts and Windham Weaponry and Sigs.
I have a Rock River Arms which shoots damn good out to 50-300 yards. I got a deal on it from a dealer cost me $850. Mid length
CMMG makes pretty decent AR15's for the price. Got a MKII for 700 even. Only issue I dislike is its a carbine length gas system
I just recently got and finished customizing a Daniels Defense v5LW for 1310 which its a mid length.
For a Entry Level AR I recommend these companies to do research on.
Rock River Arms
Palmetto State Armory/Spikes(has a ar they sell for around 800 I believe) Reason here is cause of the price the of the others in this list you could get better quality
If you look around you could find some steals and I would recommend looking around for
For what I make a month I consider these top tear AR companies just cause I can barely afford them unless I save for a couple months.
Bravo Company USA has great AR's and Service
Spikes Tactical sells some good priced well built AR's
Daniels Defense if possible you may have to check gun shops on there sales.
Palmetto State Armory make great AR's for a great price
