I just found out today that I got a $500 bonus for my job now I'm up to $1,800 for my new rifle so right now money is not a problem for me. This is what I was thinking of getting for my first AR-15 or combat rifle . 1. RRA 20" barrel flat top with a NM trigger. 2. RRA 20" barrel varmint flat top and NM trigger. 3. RRA 16" barrel flat top with a NM trigger. 4. M1A 24" barrel. 5. Remington 700 PSS 308 with a 24" or 26" barrel. 6. FAL from DSA. Tell me what you think thanks for the help.

I don't know much about RRA, but if it is a pre-ban Colt. Go for it. If not, then #5 or #6 option

With $1800, you should add an Armalite AR10(t) 24" to you list. I would get the AR10 before the M1A.

I have shot an AR-10 and a M1A and with me I shoot a lot better with the M1A and the AR-10 mags are just much money.

I would get an AR15A2 20" variant from one of the reputable vendors. (Armalite,Bushmaster,RRA,DPMS) & probably make it a flat top model (A3?)with the removable carry handle included. This gives you the option of scope or open sights & gets you started with a good setup. You'll have money left over for maybe a scope, magazines & ammo! Or you could maybe save what's left to put towards another upper for your new rifle! (a DCM upper ,a carbine or dissipator, a 24" HB)

Why limit your AR choices to only R.R.A.? I have 4 words for you...Bushmaster, Armalite, Knights & Colt.

I would never buy Colt do to the way that they screw the average Joe who want to buy an AR-15. For a civilian Ar-15 from Colt it cost that I have seen $1000+ and there selling there LEO rifles for $850 that pisses me off. Why should I pay more for less on a Colt because of the name. I have looked at the Bushmaster and Armlite and I have also shot all four rifles and the top two that I liked was 1.RRA because It shot well I like the price (I was only going to have about $700 to spend on the rifle.)For $694 with the FFL and shipping it was a great buy and a lot of the guys I shot with love theres and it was just as good as the Armlite. For the price of a Armlite I could go full out and get a heavy barrel 20" varmint rifle with NM trigger have money left over to get mags a scope and ammo. 2.Armlite it shot great and I like it also but the price got me down. I'm not ragging on this gun but the price was just a little out of my reach. 3.Bushmaster I also liked it.I don't think it shot as well as he other two (This is just with me.)The price was also out of my reach Knights I have not heard anything about them. CAV-15 was a little to high. The LEPG was a little to high do to that I have to pay the %7.5 tax on it. Last was the only rifle that I saw that had the NM trigger on it from the factory was RRA.

Tayous, If you can make it to the AR15 shoot Labor Day (actually Sunday), I will try to be there, and you can try out a DSA Standard and Carbine. What would I do with $1800-- 1. State Arms .50 cal (or a used Serbu or Armalite for near that price). 2. FNC (another one). 3. DSA "Kit Gun" $800 and $800 for a RRA. In that order. E-mail for more details. AFARR
