What is the least amount of money you would expect to pay for a new AR-15 or variation? what about a used? Also, what would you say is the vest gun for the money?

There is no such thing as the best for the money. You have to define best. Best at short range multishot targeting in the dark, best long range 800 yards plus, best price for the quality, best quality for the price?

What one user considers best may be utter nonsense to another. One user may need a lightweight slick side trunk gun in the largest possible caliber, another the most tricked out four rail and optically over compensated carbine for entry work.

"Best" is the biggest joke on the internet, and some of the best entertainment. Best times I've had are reading exchanges of enthusiasts using the best logic, best examples, and presenting the best evidence in support of their best arguments on what is the best.

I guess I've done my best to explain it - there is no best.

You really need to go out and handle as many ARs as you can. You'll start narrowing down to what YOU think is best.

A lot of us built an AR because it's so hard to find what you want off the rack.

Worst- Vulcan
Best- Well that is a matter of opinion and the purpose of the rifle I guess.

This reminds me of my first shopping for a computer in the early 80s. Sales reps kept asking, "What are you going to use it for?" Well, I didn't know specifically - I just wanted to get my hands on one and see what I could use it for.

If a similar perspective describes the OP's desire for an AR, he's likely best served by getting a basic carbine to start shooting. The guns are modular and you can monkey with them no end. All that being said leads back to the CMMG bargain bin being a good place to look.
