Now this is true for MOST but not all. The "black rifles" quickly become an addiction..lol. Buy the best that you can afford, but do your homework. Find the options (hand-guard length,barrel type & length, piston or DI..etc) you want and need. I have seen too many buy one then regret that they didn't get a mid length or quad rail equipped..
Listen to these guys on the forum, they know what they are talking about. Congratulations on your decision. I am sure it will be one you are glad you made.
