:iagree:
S&W M&P 15 Sport II $470 at Grabagun.com

Ruger AR-556 $499 at Grabagun.com

And Cabela’s has a DPMS Oracle for $499: http://www.cabelas.com/product/shooting ... s?slotId=0

Just a basic carbine. Any one of the above is a good entry level carbine for the same price as the rifle you’re looking at, and they have a milspec lower rather than a polymer lower receiver.

Here’s the Ruger:

Although, of those three, I’d go for the Ruger for the simple reason that it includes front and rear iron sights. It’s worth noting that both the Ruger and S&W have enlarged trigger guards to accommodate gloved fingers.
I just got the DPMS last week at grabagun for $389. I believe they are still showing it for that today.
