I have a really good friend in Reading, PA who's decided that he wants an AR. He's been involved with combat handguns and WWII rifles, but now he wants an AR. He knows even less about them than I do (and I know next to nothing), but he asked me for help deciding which one to buy. Well, I don't know! I need help!
If he's going to buy a complete AR, which one do you recommend?
If he's going to build one, what upper should he use? Which lower? Which stock? Which handguard? Which accessories? Which sights?
The guy is a chemical salesman, working for a huge distributor. He does really well, and brings in some good coin, but he doesn't want to be hosed. Unfortunately, he doesn't know enough about AR's to help him avoid being hosed without some help.
I know that there are many guys on the site who really know a lot about AR's, both complete new ones, and about building them. I'm counting on you guys to give me some informed help so I can pass it on to him.
