Can't say enough about the Colt 6721. Mine has been perfect for years. No issues.

I would buy either the Colt or the Ruger. Or just assemble one yourself. Simple to do and a lot of fun.

Windham if you are on a tight budget.

I bought a Delton slick side for 349 bucks. I am more than please with it. Prefer its trigger over my Windhams trigger.

We've used the delton for class guns and they have performed well. No problems. Used LWRC myself but those firearms work well for the money. Taken a lot of abuse and keep shooting!

yeah, a delton is a great budget first ar-15.

I think gym ratz has them on sale now @ $475, $510 was the original price I think. This is for a magpul version btw ( grip, trigger guard, stock and handguard)

if that's too far, (southern MD) jlowes has wydhams on sale for 600 up northeast MD.

I don't see any other ip's beating those prices currently.

One of our vendors, John Lowe (IP section) now has Windhams for $600. Probably the best deal going on in recent times. Nothing wrong with the others you mention, but dollar for dollar, at $600, you can't beat the Windhams.

I was at his shop yesterday and there was a customer from Laurel who had driven to North East MD in order to buy a Windham at that price. That's how good of a deal it is.

Good luck with whatever decisioin you make!

I was at JLowe's yesterday also he is handling a transfer for me. He said he was selling about 4 AR's a day. Good people to deal with highly recommended.

I was the guy leaving with the 2 boxes when you arrived. Sorry I didn't know it was you or I would have stayed and talked.
