    Is the reason "feel"? Brand reputation? Corporate service?

    Apologies if this question is too basic. I thought it would be better to post here rather than creating a new thread.

    i thought the DD'slooked better finish wise

    A good thing to remember with your first purchase is gun safety rules, here is an informative list on them http://gunivore.com/gun-safety/15-universal-gun-safety-rules/

    No, you don't.

    I mean, if it's your only rifle and you don't plan to use for HD, go for it. Build a light, colorful, range toy.

    For 1400, go with these few options, especially as a beginner:
    Colt 6920
    BCM Midlength
    BCM in General.
    Hell, even your price range permits some high level factory options of rails and furniture.

    Seriously though. Spend 800-900 on a colt, buy an aimpoint/higher end optic, and use the rest of the cash for a class or ammo. Or both. Then, shoot it. A lot.

    If I had 1400 laying around for a rifle, I would do that today.

    If you want to build a rifle, that's cool, but you won't know what you need out of your rifle for a few thousand rounds out of a basic, out of the box, reliable model.

    Thatís good advice. Follow it. Figure out what you want and need. Start with a good carbine as stated.

    Thoughts on building the first and learning the platform? I did for my first and it went smooth. Research and input from people who have been around. You could build a solid rifle on that budget. Even if you had the shop throw the upper parts together for you.

    But, why? When there's so many options from DD, BCM, Colt, Noveske in that range.

    Unless it's for threegun or a cheapo beater, it's not worth building. Expense of factory decent guns outweigh any decent parted together frankengun. Especially if another company assembles it too. Why not just buy an assembled reliable upper?

    Just my two cents. And I have built a couple.
