I usually pick one or two weapons a night from the safe to be beside my bed (tonite it's the 21sf & the pump 12) I never show off my weapons(except to people online who don't know me) so it does not have to be some kinda special edition anything, I just want a good basic reliable AR15.
Can't go wrong with Stag or Rock River.
I am an Armalite guy, but some of their AR's are overpriced.
For a budget build AR, Palmettostatearmory.com has some decent but very cheap 16" uppers, $79 lowers and cheap trigger kits. I would break one in with 1000 rounds before I consider it life/death reliable, though.
M & A parts have good kits but they don't sell lowers. I built a 24" bull from them with a Rock River two-stage trigger and it is VERY accurate.
