I'm a big fan of Daniel Defense rifles--always get my vote when talking of DI guns. If piston, I recommend PWS or LWRC.

I don't shoot my AR's a whole lot anymore, and I only have a few. The one I like the most and shoot the most is my SR 556. I've got just over two thousand rounds through it so far and have yet to clean it, it's been 100% to this point. I'll push it to it's first failure to see how far it'll go before maintenance is needed. It's my first piston AR and so far it's impressed the heck out of me with it's accuracy and reliability.

Save a few hundred and get the Rock River R3 competition. That's what I'm pinching my pennies for. I know quite a few guys that have been winning some comps with this rifle

I can get you a S.W.A.T. made here in Tx. with billet receivers and a lifetime transferrable warranty for well under your budget, even with shipping to your FFL of choice.

Save up just a little more and get a Larue Predatar. Billet receivers, lightweight, great balance, accurate. Made in Texas by Texans.

I disagree about the predator balancing and being that lightweight.

another vote for BCM or Daniel Defense. Or, go with a Colt 6920 and have money left over for a lo-pro gas block and a rail of your choice.
