My advice: Get a flat top for sure, then [b]read read read[/b] the forums here to see what you want to put on it. The "Picture" thread will give you some ideas too.

Would you consider a Colt? The Colt 6400c M4 carbine can be had for less than $900 if you shop around. It features: -M4 marked upper and lower -A3 flattop with proper RAS numbers -Chrome-lined chamber and barrel -Proper 1/7ROT barrel -Side sling mount -H buffer and HD extractor spring -Extended feed ramps -Standard front pushpin -No protruding sear block [b]-Lifetime service agreement[/b] If authenticity is important to you it might be something to consider [:)]

I like everything about my colt 6400C M4 except for the stock of course! soon to be fixed. I also looked at RRA M4's before buying mine and I thought they looked really nice. One thing that is nice about the colt is that it will always hold its value much more than any other brand, although I will never sell mine. And, colt makes the actual M4's for the military, FN makes M16's, so I thought that it was really cool to buy it from the company that makes the real deal. Also I liked the pinned compensator on the colt M4, some other brands I looked at had no compensator.

CJAN_NH Would you consider a Colt? The Colt 6400c M4 carbine can be had for less than $900 if you shop around.

I had a BM but use it as trade-in to get my Colt 6400c M4. The BM was okay but every BM i have had has had some type of FTF or FTE trouble and would not fire some of the ammo i would use. Also my 22lr conver. kit's (i have 3 of them) would not work right in any of the BM. But my Colt 6400c M4 has fired every-thing i have put in it with out any trouble at all (1000rnds) and my 22lr conver. kits all work super with out any trouble at all to. I have had 6 BM and 4 Colts my new one the Colt 6400c M4 now makes 5 Colts i have owned and i'm very,very,happy with it.

I put some pics up recently for anyone who might be interested in the different features of a 6400c. From a previous post: The Colt 6400c has an M4 marked upper and lower: [img]http://home.comcast.net/~cjan99999/M4_Lower_small.JPG[/img] [img]http://home.comcast.net/~cjan99999/Upper.JPG[/img] Heavy duty "H" buffer and heavy duty extractor spring for reliability: [img]http://home.comcast.net/~cjan99999/Buffer.JPG[/img] [img]http://home.comcast.net/~cjan99999/Extractor.JPG[/img] Barrel has proper 1/7ROT, chamber and barrel are chrome lined: [img]http://home.comcast.net/~cjan99999/Cmp.jpg[/img] Upper is RAS numbered: [img]http://home.comcast.net/~cjan99999/Ras.jpg[/img] Side sling mount: [img]http://home.comcast.net/~cjan99999/Sling.JPG[/img] The 6400c has a standard pushpin lower, no protruding sear block, proper M4 handguards with dual heatshields, extended feedramps, and has a [b]lifetime service agreement.[/b]

I'm guessing you shoot out at Tac-Pro Shooting Center eh? I'm also guessing college-student budget? First, I'd establish a budget that you can live with for the purchase. Second, what purpose/uses do you have in mind? Some accessories are great for range use, not so great for harder use.

Stick with the DPMS. [url=ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=22&t=174919]CMMG[/url] has chromelined, 1/7, M4 barrels, in 14.5" and 16", pre or post ban. They also have flat top uppers, with feed ramp cuts, and they sell DPMS lowers.
