Hey everyone I am looking to buy my first AR. I dont know much about them. I want to keep my first purchase under $1k. The one tip I have recieved is to not buy a carbon lower. Other than that I'm flying blind. Just hoping to get some pointers on what to look for i.e. brands, furniture, parts, chrome lined barrel or not, 1:7 twist or other. Thanks in advance for your time and advice. Also if you have one your selling in my price range feel free to point me to your ad.
