Help a bro decide on a AR-15

Long time gun owner, avid hunter, but no experience with this type of weapon. So my question is, what is a good entry level AR type rifle? That's what I'm going to ask Santa Claus to get me. Looking for something not to pricey, reliable,& well made. Help a brother out.

Walmart has a killer deal on a Sig m400. $100 less than buds

Just picked one up,a couple of months ago. I bought a Colt Mag Pul. Mil spec plus all the mag pul goodies already on it. The sig is nice and I'm a sig fan. I don't remember what I read or heard that kept me from buying it. I think it might not be mil spec? If you have an Atlantic tactical near you there prices are unbeatable.

Good luck. They are a blast.

I'm thinking it's mil-spec. At least a few vids I watched said so

Like I said Sig makes great guns. My sig 1911 is my favorite. When I was looking at the colt the m&p and the sig the sig was piston driven. I don't remember the model. I was talked out of the piston driven due to the extra cost and the ability of interchangeable parts. So basically my previous post was pointless.

Sorry and thanks for the welcome!

Depending on your budget, I'll second the Colt LE6920 Magpul recommendation as a very solid weapon. Do you homework though so that you can make a decision that fits your needs (barrel twist, sight setup, stock types, rails). You can find a "great deal" and then break the bank trying to change out parts and accessories. I went with the Colt because of their excellent reputation and the Magpul edition (Magpul makes stocks, rails, etc.) because they make reasonably priced, but quality accessories. Feel free to message me if you have any questions.

Cheaper than dirt runs specials on all components and YouTube has lots of how toos. I have been building guns since I was 14, all I can say is be patient

Good start would be to build the lower and buy an upper. Check out palmetto state armory, Joe bobs, gun broker, midway USA, etc. There are tons of places to buy parts
