    Ok I just looked it up...it's true. Prices (MSRP) from roughly $1100 to $2100. They look nice, but I have not heard very good things on their handguns, so I wonder how they will do in this market.

    There are lots of AR15 M4 type rifles on the market now that would have better resale value later. You can pick up a Bushmaster, DPMS, LMT or Armalite for less than $1K. If you are willing to attach a lower to an upper, you can put together a quality AR15 for around $700. DSA has carbine uppers for sale for $275 (w/o BCG & Charging Handle) and complete lowers for $180 (less stock). That is $675 plus shipping & FFL fees (only for lower).

    Upper: $275
    BCG & Handle: $170
    Lower: $180
    Stock: $50

    That is pretty amazing for a new AR15 carbine!

    Most of these new companies coming out with AR15's are just contracted out from the major lower/upper manufacturers, then rebranded for each one. I dont remember all of the major houses, but I think they are DPMS, Bushmaster, and one or two others. If you buy a CD AR15 for $1100, you are paying $400 for the CD name IMO.
