    Best buy M4?

    Looking to buy a flat top M4. Mid length if possible. What is a best buy these days? What say you? Thanks...

    If you use the ORANGE search button at the top of the page you will find copious amounts of information about who the favored brands are.

    That being said, stay within this list and I think you will be very happy:
    KAC, BCM, DD, Colt, LMT, Noveske

    Bravo Co, Noveske and Daniel Defense all make mid-length carbines

    Colt 6920s are very well-priced these days. I've seen prices between $980 to $1050.

    I don't see anything wrong with the carbine length systems, though if I'm building myself and the price is the same, I choose mid-length. But would definitely take a look at the 6920.

    I think there are a few rifles that are a great value for the money. I think the current colts which can be found for under $1000 is a great value. If I was looking for a midlength rifle with some upgrades such as rails, I would look at the Daniel Defense V3 which can be had for under $1200. BCMs are a great buy due to their high quality and numerous configurations. If you are looking to save some money, Spikes makes a good carbine for around $800.

    If by best buy you mean bang for the buck, those are 4 I would be looking at.

    I have a DD and love it for many reasons.

    But very happy with my S&W as well. Was my first and entry to the AR15 world. They make a few different configurations these days and are well priced.

    I dont think S&W is as bad a word as DPMS or Bushmaster around here either.

    As for carbine length M4s, Colts can be had for or a little more than $1K. I helped a buddy pick up his first AR a few months back, I found him a DDXV for just shy of a $1K.

    Best Buy M-4

    I searched three different Best Buys looking for their M4 and finally asked what section they were in. All I got were blank stares. Very funny fellas, very funny!

    That's odd, my local Best Buy had them in stock, right next to the Call of Duty display.

    Check out Clyde Armory, Althought they are listed for $1429 IIRC, they are dropping $250 when you click on the item. Also, I have seen them around $1200 on gunbroker.

    What ever happened with the Noveske vs BCM you asked about and were ready to buy 18 months ago? I'm just curious why you still have these questions after well over a year. Did you not continue with the previous purchase?

    I've personally found that searching the questions I have give me more than enough info in a majority of cases, and my questions re usually more on the harder-to-answer side of things, and still find them. It also usually gives me a better understanding of what I'm trying to find, even if the answers aren't as direct.

    Thanks to a few astute members for pointing this out.

    OP- If you haven't figured it out by now, then it obviously isn't important to you.
