I am very new to AR's and am looking at buying a cheaper AR.  I found an Century Arms AR-15 for $625 is this too much?  I know this has been covered before but any advice would be appreciated.  I was also wondering what add ons can be used on the A2.  Thanks

I'd be much more comfortable with a rifle along the lines of a Stag lower and Del-Ton kit.

About the same price - with parts I would trust.

The Century AR-15's are new Century lowers with used Colt uppers and parts.  Some are good, some are not so good.  Check it thoroughly before you buy.  Some of them don't fit together too well.  I got lucky.  I got one of the good ones.  I haven't had any problems with it.  It's a good cheap plinker.

As far as add ons you could do about anything with it?

I don't plan on putting any accesories on mine.  I like the KISS look.  I reckon you could put anything that will fit an A2 on it.

I think the only thing I will change is the stock.  Do you plan on doing anything for optics?

No optics for me.  I like iron sights.
