KAC, or JP Enterprises, are my top two.

2 grand to spend on an AR? I'd buy 3 of them. They so cheap to buy now days.

|Go ahead punk, make my day|
Lol, 1 to shoot and 2 to gather dust in the safe!
Agreed. I’d rather one good gun like a KAC than three Hobby Guns.

If I had a couple of thousand and looking for an AR I might be tempted to go with the HK. I’ve been wanting to try their upper.
|Ice age heat wave, |
Ive handled and shot a few KACs and they're very nice.
Nowadays, it's hard not to look at a BCM or a DD and suppressor but if a really nice AR is what you're looking for I'd but a KAC.

Maybe a MP5 Clone and SBR it? That would be a heck of a fun gun.
Train how you intend to Fight
Remember - Training is not sparring. Sparring is not fighting. Fighting is not combat.
JP rifles with their LMOS carriers, captive silent buffer, and an adjustable gas block are a thing of beauty.
Everyone who shoots one of mine says, "Wow, how do you get it to shoot like that?"
Their barrels are top notch for precision also.
The difference between building and buying a high end rifle can be the difference between having cash left over to put toward mounts and optics.
On certain components, I'm not afraid to buy used to save some scratch.
Stocks, optics (from the right maker), etc. I recently built on a used Mega Monolithic upper because the price was right and it was essentially unfired.
I’d get another Citizen Arms and some sort of optic.
I'd hire Fritz for an hour or two to talk through the requirements and design. Then based on that, I'd go shopping and buy what he recommended.
|Yew got a spider |
on yo head
Keep a chunk set aside for a good optic.
Or not, if it's just gonna be wall art.

With that kind of budget I'd cherry pick what components I want and build my own. Off the shelf, I like KAC for DI and PWS for piston though an SSA-E is a must for me these days.
Yep, I’d go piston with the POF. They’re tanks.
Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?
Colt 6920 with an Aimpoint PRO. Swap the stock furniture for Magpuls and add several P-mags.
That should run just under 2 grand and do everything for you.
That should run under 1k.
|To Do What is |
Right and Just
I'd go with one of PWS Alpha rifles (preferably an sbr) and throw an aimpoint t2 and mini scout light on it. If budget allows also a magnifier, otherwise take whats left and get some mags and ammo.

In my order of preference:
Daniel Defense M4V7
Sig 516 Patrol
Colt OEM 2, adding desired furniture
Depending on intended use and desire for low weight, optics would be one of the following:
Trijicon RS24-C 1-4x24
Trijicon TR24R 1-4x24
Vortex Razor HD Gen II-E 1-6x24
All would get a Geissele trigger.
I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious.
Don't forget the Barrett REC7 in both DI and piston.

This thread goes nicely with my retirement gift thread. Got a bit more to consider now.
