Someone has this AR-15 for sale near me and I was just wondering if this is a good deal for one or not. Thank you!

If factory rifle in the current environment that’s a fair deal.

IMO, it's overpriced, but as stated above, if you take the current firearm shortage into account, that's not awful.

The thing's been on sale for about 3 weeks, so I'm thinking of offering a lot less than what he's asking.

I like the DB rifles...never shot one but my buddy has a couple and they seem to be pretty nice. The scope is worth about $30 though.

DB rifles retail around 5-600 range, with scope sounds about right. I personally wouldn't purchase one of their rifles in any situation.

Is there any reason in particular for that?

Quality, the rifles I've held weren't all that. One rifle had lots of blemishes in the lower, another felt pretty sloppy, upper and lower wasn't a tight fit. That was enough to convince me that they needed some improvement and spend coin elsewhere. Of course this was a few year's back so they could've improved confused2.

DB is a decent over the counter brand. I have an DB10 AR10 that I bought after seeing a buddy's and how well it shot. Admittedly, I had troubles getting the barrel to shoot. I called DB and explained everything I had tried and what the groups had looked like (I even bought factory Gold Metal Match to prove my point). After one phone call and a single conversation they sent me another barrel no further questions asked. They wanted the old one so they could see what was wrong with it. I put the new barrel on and it's shot well since. No it's not a hammer but it will hammer stuff it's pointed at.

I'd buy another if it was one I wanted...good company to do business with and more importantly they act like they appreciate and want your business.

Ended up passing on this one, but I found another. Could y’all please help me out with it? They’re asking $750.

That one looks like a parts bin gun. Anderson is about the lowest rung you can get before the poly lowers. Definitely wouldn't pay $750 for it. Probably wouldn't pay $550 for it to be honest.

If that's your budget, why not get a new Palmetto State gun?
