I'm on an AR budget of between $599-$699.

I've narrowed down my decision to:

S&W M&P 15 Sport......PSA 16" M4 .......DPMS M4

I'm using this weapon for home defense and range plinking. Whats your recommendation as to what I should purchase and why. In time I will be adding accessories like a new grip, Pic rails for a forward grip-handle. I already have 2 optics for it.

(Note: I do have 17- 30rd and 5- 20 rd mags.)

Thanks in advance!:wavey:

I would go with the PSA gun. The Sport feels like **** in your hands, and the DPMS is **** in your hands.

The Sport or PSA, I would go with the PSA. A coworker has a Sport and I was actually pretty impressed with it for the money.

PSA. My dad recently picked up a Sport, and really likes it. He did say it handled a lot better after he swapped the MOE stock off his other AR. The only one I have handled in person didn't seem like a bad rifle. I just wish it came with a standard upper receiver.

customer service is excellent.

ordered my rifle kit in october (end of), got it first week of november.

opened box and took complete upper and tried it on a rifle at work, didn't even look at the lower parts.

after thanksgiving, i finally go to put the lower parts into my lower. hey, there's no fire control group.

checked the box.

checked the box again.

crap. it's wednesday night at 7pm. i shoot an email off to psa thinking they'll get to it in the morning. at 9pm, i got a response asking me to confirm i am missing parts.
i respond, i get an email that they will ship out the FCG the next day. thurs, i get a tracking #. monday, i get my fcg.

now i still haven't gotten around to finishing my rifle yet, but i will this weekend, then i'll post pics.

Spend another hundred or so and get a regular S&W M&P15.

my M&P15T has been great. It was easily the best $900 i spent. i don't know if you can get them for that price nowadays. only problem was the rails were mounted crooked from the factory. easy enough fix. I love the troy flip up sights it came with. the rail just got too big for me since i really didn't put anything on it. i'm going with the psa this time because i can build it exactly how i want and learn in the process.

Yes, I've used PSA customer service twice. Once I ordered lowers and the website didn't add the shipping. I was notified of the error and PSA came up with a solution to my satisfaction, and the second time I was sent the wrong item. I called and they shipped out the right item that day without waiting for the wrong one to be returned to them.

A+ in my book.

While I still purchase from PSA, for their prices, they forgot to include a bolt release pin, and when I emailed them, their response was lackluster.

I see PSA leaves out the rear sight on their $599 model.

PSA has great prices on parts particularly their lower parts kits (which I've used a few times on builds) the only downfall I see to them is their fire control springs are a bit weak.
