Whats out there for $1000 to $1300 dollar rifles?

Recommended Posts

Have between $1000 and $1300 to spend on another AR. Heres what I am looking for. 16 inch barrel in 5.56 .223. Carbine or midlength gas or possibly piston driven. Looking for something that might be ambi from the factory as I am a lefty. Also something with a decent free float tube/rail. Looked at POF Minuteman Piston driven so far for $1100. Thanks

in that price range I would go with:

 

BCM http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/BCM-Bravo-Company-Rifle-Carbine-M4-AR15-M16-s/140.htm

Spikes Tactical http://www.spikestactical.com/complete-rifles-c-113.html

 

Between the two.....BCM.

 

If you wanted to bump your budget several hundred dollars you could get into a Daniel Defense starting around 1700.00

If I was going to drop $1300 on an AR right now:
Upper: http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/BCM-16-Mid-Length-Upper-Receiver-Group-p/bcm-urg-mid-16.htm(Includes BCU, Mod 1 FS) and a Mod 3 Charging Handle

 

Lower: http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=F1ANSLNTG&name=Anderson+Manufacturing+AM15+Multi.+Cal.+Lower+Receiver+w%2f+Trigger+Guard&groupid=722 (Anderson lower)

 

LPK: http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=XSTLPK101&name=Spike%27s+Tactical+AR15+Lower+Receiver+Parts+Kit&groupid=806&fprdct=1

 

Buffer assy: http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=XBCMSTOCKHARDWAREKIT&name=BCM+Stock+Hardware+Mounting+Kit+(Mil-Spec)&groupid=576

 

Stock: http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=XB5BRV20601GREY&name=B5+Systems+BRAVO+SOPMOD+Collapsible+Rifle+Stock+GREY&groupid=998&fprdct=1

 

Grip: http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=XB5PGR00601GREY&name=B5+Systems+P+Grip+23+GREY&groupid=856&fprdct=1

 

Rear Sight: http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=XTSSIGFBSR0BT00&name=Troy+Ind.+Rear+Folding+Battle+Sight+Black&groupid=981

 

Handguard; http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=XMAG418GRY&name=Magpul+MOE+MidLength+Handguards+Grey&groupid=1693&fprdct=1

 

That is a tad under $900.00 nicely done.

 

That leaves you with $400.00:

 

AMMO: http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=AP556M193CASE&name=Prvi+Partizan+PPU+.223%2f5.56x45+M193+55grn+FMJ+1000rd+CASE&groupid=1650&fprdct=1$319 for 1000 rounds of PPU ammo

Mags: http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=MMAG571BLK&name=Magpul+PMag+GEN+M2+MOE+30rd+5.56%2f.223+AR+Rifle+Magazine+Black&groupid=961&fprdct=1X4 = $49.20

That leaves you with about $32.00

Buy a sling or dinner for two at Applebees.

That budget should get you set up pretty well.

 

If it were my money, I'd look pretty seriously at Bravo Company but that's just my opinion.

CCDN has pof gen 3 lowers for 399. Just picked one up myself.

http://www.cdnnsports.com/pof-p-415-lower-complete-w-trigger-stock-grip.html#.VKP89snnbqA i know it is not a whole rifle but it is a real good start if you if you want piece two together like a bcm upper at http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/ to make a bitchin rifle. I am not sure if i personally like the higher rail on the pof upper.

Not a billet with a drop in trigger and all the ambi goodies, i bought that one for a 3 gun build I want to do with a vltor vis upper. Now I have 200 or less in all my other lowers from rra and aero Edited by hzhardy

This person is looking for a good rifle for $1100 to $1300, spending 1/2 to 1/3 of that budget on a lower is silly. Ambi-goodies can be added later, as needed. Billet is unnecessary imho. I have a SunDevil lower, I prefer Mega Gators over it. It does not have a tuned trigger. A better barrel or sights would be more beneficial than a bling lower. Also a cheaper albeit nice lower would allow for ammo to be part of the budget.
