I'm tossing around the idea of an AR in .223. Just fishing for information right now.

Some basic questions...

What would be the best full up over the counter (OTC) AR that has a good trigger, match barrel, flat top, etc.

What's the advantages of a build over the best OTC rig?

Thanks in advance

I guess I need to put more info on what I want.

I'm thinking more of a varminter long range gun. 2 lb trigger, 1/2 MOA accuracy or better if practical. No special target gun chamber dimensions. 18-20" heavy bbl.

Build it!!!!! you get what you want how you want it. Most of the time cheaper!! just made about what your looking to other then the trigger for around 700.. a good trigger is going to run you 200 +

How much you looking to spend with out sights or scope.

Excellent grouping. My 6H is not quite up to that accuracy, or maybe it's me?

It's you! ;) Most days my groups don't look like that, but it always shoots sub MOA. It's the proverbial "my gun is more accurate than I am". If I miss I know it's not me. Try the Fiocchi Vmax, mine loves them, 40 or 50 grainers..
