Need some opinions here people. I have been saving up for my first AR for awhile now. My dilemma is whether I should purchase an M&P15 sport for around $620 otd or continue saving for a higher quality build? The higher quality build would consist of either a DD or Noveske upper, and a lower built by me. I am looking at entry level DD & Noveske uppers for under $900. So looking at $620 vs $1150ish. The rifle will be used for range and possibly deer at some point. I do not purchase firearms often, nor do I sell them. I realize that for my use the sport would be more suited. However, I dont mind saving up and purchasing a higher quality product. Also in the back of my mind is SHTF scenario. Having the dust cover and a more accurate rifle would help in such a situation. Chances are it won't happen obviously, but I don't want to purchase the sport and be disappointed. Im leaving towards building as I feel that the benefits of a higher end build will be worth the wait. Sorry for the long post..just been sitting on this for awhile now. Any responses are greatly appreciated.
