Ok folks I have narrowed my choice of AR down to 2 guns.
1. DPMS Panther Deluxe Bull Twenty-Four Special
2. Bushmaster "Varmint Special"

Which do you think I should go with. I'm looking for accuracy. They both have free-float 24" SS barrels. The Bushmaster already has a 2-stage trigger which is what a person wants correct?? The Panther would cost another $150 or so for a 2-stage trigger. Besides that they are about the same. I guess is the Panther worth the extra money vs. the Bushmaster??

Any comments, suggestions, would be greatly appreciated!!

Bushmaster hands down.

Ever walk into the house of someone who has really nice things, so nice that you don't want to touch anything for fear of beaking it? DPMS is akin to the delicate thing you don't want to touch whereas a Bushmaster is fully functional and can take a helluva beating.

-or- another way to look at it,

DPMS Panther= Benchrest
Bushmaster Varminter= Benchrest and field deployable
