I just purchased my first AR and I wanted something that was built with quality parts and ready to rock right out of the box. This is what I ended up with....
DDM4.COM - Daniel Defense M4 Carbine
very light, nicely built rifle. It fit my needs and the price was right. Now that I have one to shoot, I can take my time building another one myself. Most likely a SBR.
I'm now hunting for optics.. (or should I say , saving up for? ) freakin optics cost as much as the gun! ugh.
