OP, go and buy the rifle. While there maybe a price drop in the future, and I too think there will be one, but what if another psycho goes and shoots and kills more people. Then the market is going to sky rocket again and more laws could be passed limiting your chance at owning an AR.

I'd buy it.

My friend had one and it ran like a top.

Thanks for all the information and input guys!

I just realized they recently changed the barrel and I am kind of bummed about it. What if this is not the model with the melonited 5r 1:8 twist barrel, should I still get it?

Just FYI its a milspec extension/stock.

I would buy it at that price.

I have owned one and regret selling it.

Hey everyone,

Thanks for your input. Everyone was super helpful! I decided not to buy this rifle because it does not come with the 1/8 twist, it comes with a 1/9 twist. I felt like all my research was based on the 1/8 twist model and I feel like the sport may no longer be as good of a deal as it once was. Does anyone have any recommendations for a rifle in the same price range that is as good as the sport?

There is nothing wrong with a 1/9 twist barrel unless your planning on shooting 69gr and up bullet weights. I have a 1/9 twist RRA that has been flawless with 55 snd 62gr bullets.

I'd like to know when $826 was expensive for an AR.

Are people seriously saying that's a great price before and during panic? lol. OP if you don't have an AR, want one asap just in case, and that's all you can afford, then by all means. But, those things were as you said $600 tops before the panic. I think BudsPoliceSupply had'em for maybe $499 at one point.

If you can hold out and think you're safe. I'd just dish out the extra money to buy a complete upper and lower you are sure you're for. It'll save you some hassle doing it that way IMO.

Dollar cost average. Buy one now seeing as you probably don't have one, then buy another AR later when prices come down!
