OK, So I'm getting an AR soon. I don't know which kind to get! I know I want an M4 A3, but dont know which brand to get. Everyone has told me Bushmaster or RRA, but man they are high. Is there any cheaper alternatives that will still be reliable, and durable? And where should I purchase such a rifle?

Thanks

I have a DPMS M4 and an Oly M4. No issues with either since I got them, and my DPMS has seen a few carbine classes and not choked once

Well one thing I have learned in life is that "cheapest & Quality" dont co-exist. You either want quality, or you want cheapest! You get what you pay for. In terms of AR's, nothing is cheap inexpensive. To me its worth "ponying" up the extra couple hundred bucks to but quality. As far as reccomendations go, I had a Bushmaster, but unfortunately I got one of the over-torqued barrels, and several calls to customer service and the rifle being sent back 3 times did not resolve my issues, so I got my money back. Others have had great luck with their bushies including a friend of mine that bought his about a month after me. I have heard a lot of praise for the Rock River as well, but I have not fired or personaly held a RRA. I decided to go with a Colt. Lot of people say your paying for the name. Well that may be true, but if I ever go to resell it in the future (I highly doubt it though) I will get more out of it for that very reason. Just personal opinion. Whatever you choose to buy, congratulations, and I'm sure you will love it...stay safe!
