What's better...or does it matter?
I have the option to purchase an AR. I can get either a Stag, Rock River Arms or Spikes. I have NO experience with rifles and can get a REALLY good deal on any of these. No more that 800-1100 for any of them. Is there one that is better than another or does it matter? What options should I look for or avoid? HELP PLEASE!!!! I want to own a rifle!!!!!!

STAG - I have one, love it. 100% USA made by a long time military contractor. Built in New Britain Ct.
There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

Any of the mentioned should be a good rifle.

For that price range why not just put together an LMT upper on an LMT lower? Are these rifles physically available or just particular companies of interest to you? If it's because they're available, get the lowest price of those three and invest the rest in ammo, mags, and training.

I would gladly purchase any of them if I had the cash.

Out of those three, I'd buy the Rock River.

Of the three....Stag, but like BAC, I'd spring for an LMT; either a complete carbine or purchase the lower and upper separately. Or I'd go with a Bravo Company upper and LMT lower.
That said I have two "frankenguns" which are two Stag lowers mated to a Colt 6721 and LMT uppers, respectively. Both carbines also sport LMT M-16 bolt carrier groups.

All three of those are fine rifles. Of them my personal preference is RRA.

I would say that the RRA has the best resale value due to name recognition.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

Got the money for 2K rounds and at least 12 mags too? If not, It could be a very poor investment.
PTRs and DSA FALs are in that range, mags are cheaper and ammo will be comparitively stable in price.
A precision bolt gun (Savage 110, Steyr SBS, Rem 700, Browning A bolt Light Mountain) with modest optics (Burris Signature, Leupold, Nikon, IOR Valdada) may be more useful, and will certainly be "accessoraziable" longer (though not necessarily by much).
Lot's of buyers are looking "to have." For some that may be a legitimate choice. If, however, you don't have an accurate long gun, there may be items that are currently less costly, more "acceptable" and maybe more truthfully practical than one of the escalating$$ EBRs.

After handling all three and trying them at 100 yards I think I would opt for the RRA. Its a quality weapon.
Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.
