AR 15 Question
#1
OK, looking for opinions. Haven't seen them in person, but hopefully today. Looking for info on what you would choose given the option:


Like New Mossberg MMR Tactical 5.56 Nato ($750)
New Smith & Wesson M&P-15 5.56 Nato ($650)
New DPMS A-15 5.56/223 ($650)

Personally, I'm leaning S&W or DPMS due to the lower price point, but seeing them in person and whats included could change that. For instance, an included plastic case and/or additional magazines may sway one over the other.

But aside from the truly unimportant case/magazine/included accessories, between the three which is the better gun? What would you choose, or at this price point does it even matter?

Thanks!

What is the twist rate on these rifles? 1:9, 1:8 1:7? IF you want to stabilize heavier projectiles aim for the 1:8 or 1:7 if you will stick with 55-68 grain like most of us anyone is fine. I believe all three have chrome lined barrels. If you can check the BCG and make sure they are MPI and are properly staked. I would go with the DPMS or the S&W but thats just me.

I would also go with the s&w or dpms. I don't have any personal experience with a Mossberg AR and don't know anybody who does so I can't say anything good or bad.

I say S&W or DPMS. If the S&W has a carbon or polymer lower, then get the DPMS.

If you go PSA you can get a "budget" one or a higher end one, just make your selection carefully and prepare to wait a bit. Nothing wrong with PSA stuff.

Supposedly PSA rifles are all FNH parts. They are only a few miles from each other.

PSA parts are high quality. Unfortunately due to their poor service I will never give them another dime.

Please explain? I've never had an issue. Then again I've only ordered from them a few times, and it wasn't during the height of the AWB scare.
