I agree with TAM, and would add that how you spend that $200 would depend on if you are going to be using for plinking, home defense, competition, etc.dino9832 wrote:Okay, so a decent AR can be had for $500.
How much more "joy" could be had for $700 total? It's kind of like bicycles.
There's a point of diminishing returns at a certain cost point I'm sure.
Again, thanks for all the helpful advice! This has been a really good community.
If for home defense you can add a Streamlight TLR-2, if for plinking/hunting you can add a 1-6 rifle scope like the one above, if for competition you can upgrade the BCG/charging handle/trigger etc.
