I recommend one of the PSA complete uppers with the 1:7 chrome-lined bore. It seems many of their uppers are out of stock right now, but they have a 20" PSA with BCG/CH for $449 as of the time of this posting

That is an excellent deal for a rifle gas system and CHF barrel, basically as close as you can get to a true M16 upper.

Then Add one of their lowers for less than $200, and you have a complete rifle for around $700 and money left over for your optic. Keep in mind you'd have to wait at least 14 business days for shipping, so if you don't mind the wait its a good deal.

If they have something you want in stock, be prepared to jump on it right away as their stock is limited.

But if you want a rifle now, then the M&P Sport is a great AR. It lacks a few conveniences; you will have to decide for yourself if that is important for your uses or not. I did own a Sport this year with the new 1:9 barrel and it was still a great rifle.

I had the M&P15 ORC and it was very nice. Never actually shot it before I had to sell it, but a friend and his brother had them and they were great shooters. A friend of mine has a Windham now, not sure of the exact model, but it was like $700 and is an optics ready gun pretty similar to the S&W. Only thing different was the Windham seemed to have a slightly better finish. Just a little better, not much. Of the three choices, I would take the Windham, but all 3 are ok.

After some research, shopping around and looking over various AR's, based upon quality, fit & finish (and a transferable lifetime warrantee), I bought a Windham Weaponry MPC. IMHO it is the best quality AR out there for under $1,200.00. Just my opinion.
