How old are you?

Thanks Joppa, for not being lazy like me and finding that. Still, how old is the OP? If he's 20, then he should just wait, if he's 18, then maybe he should get an HBAR.

I picked up a DTI HBAR a couple months ago for $860. I thought it was a good price for what I was getting and dropped a few more bucks on some extras and now its my favorite rifle.

I think for a starter to the AR platform its a good choice. It worked for me!

Everyone tosses around the term milspec. Very few ARs built today by anyone are truly and completely milspec.

Colt 6920 is fully milspec - regulated though.

Alot of manufacturers claim milspec. The reality is otherwise.

There is a great article in the September 2010 Guns & Weapons for Law Enforcement on this very subject. Written by Rob SLoyer creator of the famous "chart".

Also, to build a quality AR with milspec parts its going to cost more than a complete gun. We dont buy in bulk. Any idiot can clip on an upper to a lower. Building an AR is assembling the whole thing the correct way part by part.

Canuck,

What do you think of BCM?

From my reading of "The Chart," it would seem that BCM is the same as colt (better if you count the warranty) and costs less.

Paul Buffoni builds good shit. BCM uppers are 100% milspec in every sense of the word.

If i didnt prefer "canuck-spec" and build my own I would buy BCM.

I just built 2 sprs for 2 local guys. Both rifle length gas 18" guns. I used bcm SS barrels and BCM bcgs. I like a rigid billet upper such as Larue or the VLTOR MUR for sprs - less flex.

Sounds sweet. I'm still debating what to put on the lower I just assembled, BCM or LWRCI (don't mind me, I drink the piston flavoraid).

Meh.... Mispec, a spec of known quality built by the lowest bidder.... I'd be happy to have my old sabre back.. But if I have to go with another AR, it's going to be from a custom builder.
