Here is a BCM Middy for $983.00 http://www.gandrtactical.com/cgi-bin/co ... ID-750-LWC
When you add your handguard, stock, and BUIS your at about $1080.00. A little over your budget but again IMHO a lot better rifle.

Just to clarify I am not in any way connected with G and R Tactical. I have bought from them and will again his service is tops as far as I have experianced.

I look at it as saving up a little more to buy a higher quality rifle has to be worth it in the end. I mean if I take care of it I could have it my whole life.

Luckily my wife is on board, she definitely approved of both AR purchases. My wife has bought me 3 or 4 guns in last 3 years with her allowance. :)

well, let her shoot yours, and then maybe you'll just have to get her one of her own, old school black, or maybe a touch of pink...that should do the trick! :mrgreen:

It's funny you say that! My wife loves to shoot my AR's.

She has a sig p238 for her carry gun, when she shoots she hates to load the mags. I think she likes having 30 rounds a pop the AR's give ya! :lol: get lots of mags 30 goes quick!

I haven't gotten mine out to the range yet. She was raised to be very scared of firearms and after almost six years she's finally willing to go.

No, besides I really need to save some cash to get into reloading. Everytime I get some cash put back another gun catches my eye.
