All of those are great ARs to consider . Have you thought about building your own . My most recent build cost just over $1,000
and you can build a basic one for 6 to 7 hundred
. PSA has a very good product http://palmettostatearmory.com/
As for the stock and sight line . I am in no way an expert but its my understanding that the stock is straight because the BCG ( bolt carrier group ) must slide in to the buffer tube ( stock ) In the normal operation of the gun . If it was bent , curved or canted in any way the bolt would not operate as designed . The by product of this design is less muzzle rise .
I to live in C.A. . You can install the bullet button your self . If you live close to a Turners outdoorsman http://www.turners.com/
They tend to have sales all the time on ARs
First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a communist , Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a socialist , Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a trade unionist , Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out - because I was not a Jew , Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak out for me.
