I know computers, I always tell people to build their own computer, but until I know my stuff, I'm not sure I am ready to build a rifle. I can spout off stats of many guns but I have not shot enough to build my own. Worst case scenario, I buy one, get familiar, learn what I like and don't like, sell that rifle and build a custom one. I earn enough that I can "waste" 1k on a rifle I end up not loving. I can afford a $2,000 Daniel Defense or ADM UIC MOD 2, my question is, is it worth it? Does a DDM V11 Pro justify 800-1000 over a "mid range" AR-15 LIKE A Colt 6721 or a Ruger?
The Colt is considered the standard, however the Ruger 556 will serve you equally as well. If you want more money left over, the Ruger has an awesome price point. If you want the "best" get the Colt and you will be fine there as well.

Buy an AR. Then build 4-5 more ARs.

SKS! Fun to shoot, cheap to buy, cheap ammo, reliable, almost indestructible, buy more. There are like new Yugo SKS rifles available in almost new condition for about $400+. If you have a C&R FFL, it can be shipped to your front door.
