I know its a lot to spend, but you get what you pay for.
$850 plus tax and FFL transfer..."its alot" is an understatement. Thats twice as much as an M&P15-22. I completely understand the concept of you get what you pay for but is that extra $400 really giving me more 22 plinking/training for the money than an M&P? $400 is not just a few bucks more. I am just a lowly state employee (with furloughs and no more OT) so $850 bucks on a .22 is alot of money to me.

Buying a lower then buying a dedicated upper is expensive any way you slice it and defeats the whole purpose of what I am wanting to do, which is save some money but still enjoy the features of an AR. I'd buy an upper in a heart beat if I already owned an AR but I dont, and I dont want to but an traditional AR right now. If I get a new AR it will be a next gen gas piston variant and I am not ready to go there yet.
