    I am new to the forum and new to ar's. I am looking to pick one up before it is to late. Which would you pick for these prices?
    PSA m4 premium - $1200
    Colt LE6920 - $2000
    S&W M&P 15 - $1750

    I'd get whichever one was still available... Of the three, I'd pick the S&W.

    At those prices,I would pick the PSA riffle.

    I'm with ws on this one .... whichever one you can find.

    Had in my hands a S&W a few months ago that I could have bought for less than $1000.00. Can't touch that price today, even if I could find one available.

    I wouldnt spend an additional $800 just to get a Colt over a PSA. Palmetto State makes a perfectly fine weapon.

    If you could get one, I'd take the PSA, personally. Not that the others aren't good rifles, I just don't think either of them are good enough to justify the additional dollars.

    Of course the obvious answer is to buy all three!

    Without getting into a debate over Mil Spec or parts quality, etc... etc.... etc.......and not that I'm a purest, but yes because if don't, 40 years from now you'll be able to show your grandkids the COLT. Also, if you or a family member was ever in the service it would be really cool to be able to pass down a gun and say, here this is an example of the rifle that you or uncle joe defended freedom. Chances are PSA will be a distant memory. I guess another question is $800 might seem like a lot but 10 years from now are you going to be like Man I should have bought the COLT? A good example of this is seen in the M1s, I always hear people saying I got a springfield armory garand. Consider the $800 an investment in history.

    Check out CORE15. Outstanding warranty. Not bad prices.

    I like the colt, and have one. But any AR right now is the one you want. If for some reason Diane Fienstien was struck by lightning, you would have reason to wait, but lightning should be so lucky.

    Go with the Colt. It's too bad you had to wait though as the price you found the Colt for is twice as much as it was last year.

    I have a S&W that I bought for 850.00 a couple months ago. I thought that was too high then but I am glad now that I have it.

    Personally, I like the Colt. I was lucky in that I got one the Saturday after Thanksgiving--and I didn't pay nearly what they are now asking for them, even if you can find one!

    I have the LE6920. It is a solid gun for the $1050 I paid for it about 10 months ago. I may even say it would be worth up to $1500. It is not a $2000 gun when there is still a reasonable chance that this ban isn't going to happen. The PSA is the right pick. They make guns that will work just fine for 99% of the shooters out there and at $800 cheaper it is a slam dunk decision.
