For what it's worth, I appreciate all the input. It probably saved me from wasting money on a weapon that wasn't worth it. I will be the very first to admit that I know very little about AR's in general. My last military type issued weapons were the M1 Garand and the 1911 Colt so I'm pretty much and old fart. That being said, I just sold a model A pre ban IMI UZI semi auto and would like to replace it with a decent AR-15. Somewhere around $1000/$1400. any help would be appreciated.
Compromise, is failure on the installment plan.
