We often debate which bolt gun shoots the best out of box. (Weatherby Vanguard peep)

CDNN Sports and Brownells have been flooding my email with holiday specials so I figured I'd ask.

What is the best factory AR-platform rifle on the market today?

I'd expect any $2k AR to shoot better than any $750.00 AR.

Rock River, for the money. I don't claim to be a great shot. I suspect the 'flier' in each of these groups is the first shot and caused by FRP from the suppressor (Silencerco Omega).

18" .223 Wylde ATH Upper 5 shot 100 yd group, Hornady Varmint Express 55gr, bags front/rear:


16" 6.8 SPC Coyote Upper, 5 shot 100 yd group, Fed Fusion 115gr, bag front/rear:

We own 2 DPMS factory 16" bull barreled guns that shoot 5 touching with my reloads. I can't imagine anything "better" for a $450 upper assembly.

IMO, there are three rifles to buy.

1. DPMS-- $500-700
2. RRA-- $750-1000
3. JP-- $ 2500

Windham Weaponry ar15 is impressive to me. Great story behind them, too.

I am biased. Since I have 7 of them I'd have to go with Colt. I recognize and acknowledge that there are better AR's out there off the shelf, but not for the same money (my opinion only). Also with me there invariably comes a time where I want to sell/trade and you get more value when that time comes with a Colt than just about anything.

I dont own any out-of-box ARs anymore but when I did I would say the S&W MP Sport was pretty good for the $. My ARs now are self-assembled - $400 frankenturd and a $2500 Noveske. They both function and shoot about the same but I get more chicks with the Noveske.
