View Full Version : M4/AR 15

November 22, 2009, 09:52 PM
Anybody have any suggestions about which M4/AR would be best for the money? I believe that you couldn't go wrong with Colt...but I haven't heard a whole lot about the Bushmaster or Stagg models. Please suggest any other manufacturers that you may see fit in the comparisons.

For $600 + shipping and transfer, this deal (http://cmmginc.secure-mall.com/shop/?cart=2016792&cat=161&) is very hard to beat.

While not knowing a great deal about ARs, I do know that Colts have excellent resale-ability. If I were to pick up anything today, I would lean towards a S&W M&P, but that's just me.

Thanks for the info. so far guys. I just read a post by gunner from earlier, didn't mean for this to be a rehash of info.

Another AR debate in 3....2....1:eek:

My Smith & Wesson M&P 15T it has been great so far sorry can't speak for Colt.

This a good deal on the Smith & Wesson MOE.....http://www.gandrtactical.com/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi?preadd=action&key=81102X&reference=/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi%3Fsearch%3Daction%26keywords%3D%26searchstart%3D9%26template%3DPDGCommTemplates/FullNav/SearchResult.html%26category%3DSMWE

Check it out..worth the extra money. Or for half the price del ton makes a good one.

Probably a short lived phenomenon, but at the last two gun shows I've been to NIB Colt 6920s were under $1000 and cheaper than some of the Bushmasters. If you can still find that deal it'd be the one to do.

The Ruger SR-556 has like many piston ARs bolt carrier tilt issues. A quick google search will bring up many results on the problem. I would think twice before I laid down $1500.00 on one, but that's just me.

O yeah what can it do better than the same DI rifle I build for under $1000?

Never had any issues out of my Colt 6920, resale value is king. Never had any issues with my S&W M&P15 either, functioned flawlessly.

How about Olympic Arms...I know that they are kinda at the lower end of the spectrum...but they still look like good quality.

i love my M&P15

November 25, 2009, 08:12 PM
My M&P 15A has been great so far (500-600 rounds).

November 25, 2009, 08:16 PM
1000 round thru my M&P15 and lovin it.

lots of good AR's. get as much mil-spec as you can afford. See chart near the bottom of this link: http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=pwswheghNQsEuEhjFwPrgTA&single=true&gid=5&output=html

the bargain bin is a great deal.

Hard to beat a Stag for the money.

The market is flooded with ARs and prices are dropping - be a savvy shopper.

November 25, 2009, 09:43 PM
Wow, :eek: that price in the M&P 15T. About half what I paid for one last April.

Ah well, I still love my MOE Smitha ans Wesson.

Big +1 for the Smith AR line. Highly recommended. They are insanely accurate (one hole at 25 yards with a 5 MOA red dot), and mine has never hiccuped once.

DPMS Panther AP4. Awesome rifle. Acurate out of the box, and I payed $800.00 for it.
