a black rifle? I have been waffling on this issue for a few years and have always talked myself out of it but given the current socio-political climate I’m thinking now might be the time to do it but I don’t want to get caught up in a buying frenzy and pay an inflated price. I have no real need for one and I might get to the outdoor range once a month (in nice weather) to take on a few 200 yard paper targets. My problem is that I have not kept up with the current trends and brands of ARs. I see variants that are $550 BNIB and I see others that are $1500 BNIB and 20 feet away you can’t tell one from the other. My first experience with an AR was in the mid-1960s with a civilian Colt AR-15 which I liked then and still admire today but I’m not interested buying a museum piece. My second experience with an AR was a .223 Valmet in the early 70s. So given all the AR-15 clones today what is the Ninja Mall’s collective recommendation for an over the counter semiauto make, model and price point? I am also interested to know your recommendation for accessories such as an optical red-dot sight, etc. the brand of quality magazines and a list of spare parts to keep on hand. Thanks.
