    So first off I have about $800 (but I could be forced into spending a little more). I'm looking at the

    Del-ton MOE Carbine $700 (awesome deal through coctailer)
    Del-Ton, Carbine Rifle

    Rock River Arms RRA LAR-15 Operator 2 $1000.
    Rock River Arms: NEW! RRA LAR-15 Tactical Operator2

    So what do you guys think? The Operator 2 is definitely more of what I'm looking for but I don't exactly want to spend the money.... So is it worth it? What about brand feedback... Which one is more reliable, accurate, etc.

    got one a few weeks ago. It's as advertised except I forgot to ask for a receipt, no receipt, no warranty.

    I would read this first:
    M4 CHART

    Personally if I was looking for a really cheap AR-15, I would get a CMMG bargain bin rifle:
    CMMG Chrome Lined Bargain Bin M4
    Best bang for the buck, but...

    If you can at all afford it, get a nice AR-15. You will not be disappointed.

    I have the RRA Tactical and right out of the box it's accurate with nice fit and finish. Have shot the Del-ton too (buddy has one) It's not bad but I like my RRA better. Have a bushmaster DCM that blows them both away on accuracy though.

    I am contemplating a Del-ton though as a backup shooter. 699 is a hellava deal!!!

    He's an FFL and licensed business in WA, a receipt isn't hard to write up and give to a buyer, we did it all the time when we were selling at cat shows.

    And without a receipt there is no warranty from Del-Ton according to the paperwork in the box I got from Cocktailer.

    I don't think I could be much happier with the Del-ton I picked up from coctailer. For a cheap AR it looks feels and shoots great! I have $800 in it.. beat that.
