Now, this brings me to my next point. This $590 (no rear sight) is a super AR, but why not make it yours by building a mix of parts which Dick's or some other lowest common denominator sporting goods store will have for $800 on Black Friday?
IMO, if building, live a little. Spend $800, but get MOE furniture in green or FDE, get a middy upper, throw in a Strikefire red dot, get a rear sight, etc
My kid's AR is:
PSA Lightweight Mid Upper - $320
Magpul MOE handguard - $39
Core15 BCG - $124
SAA lower - $100
PSA MOE Lower Completion Kit - $125
2nd buttstock and A2 Grip - $20
$835 total, but it includes a second set of furniture. . .destined to become purple!
