Let me hear em. In the market for some semi auto rifle action. Thanks I’m advance.

would love something around 1200 if possible.
BCM Recce would be my rec too at that price point. Have a Recce 16 that is my fav all-arounder.In that range I would normally recommend something from Bravo Company(BCM). Would be a little more, especially now, but thats the best I can think of in that ballpark. A couple months back you were able to find the complete lower and complete uppers in stock occasionally. Unfortunately I think those days are over.
As others have said you can't really find anything right now. That Armalite CDDP linked above is nothing special but it's not a terrible choice for the times and lack of better options. I'll look around this evening and see if I can find some other options for you
Edit to add: We can dress that Armalite up pretty easily and make it cooler looking if thats a factor for you. Don't want you looking like an extra from a 1989 Schwarzenegger movie.
If you know anything about them at all build your own from somewhere like palmetto state armory.
Good luck finding anything right now. Easier to bed a MB 9 than to find and 5.56 or 9mm ammo.
I'd argue that you don't need to know shit to build one. I've done two so far. I tried to take them across the lake to show my buddy, and they didn't make it.If you know anything about them at all build your own from somewhere like palmetto state armory.
At short shots like that, most calibers are fine. .556 just has very little energy and requires much better shot placement. If you are only looking to hunt with it, then I'd suggest a .270 bolt rifle. Still carries 1000 ft-lbs at 600 yards, and ammo isn't as scarce. If you are looking for an AR, then I'd suggest a 6.8. A lot more energy for pigs, deer, and other larger critters. Personally, I only use my .556 for coyote as it's a very light round.
The larue tactical ar in versions platforms can be had for that price. Their backlog is 6 months but their guns are exceptional. I ordered two back in July. I received one of them so far. The other should be here soon.would love something around 1200 if possible.
OP, if you just need a gun to go bang...get the above.
Ive hunted a traditional ruger M77 bolt action 30-06 all my life, was given to me at 14. I know shit about ARs, so forgive my ignorance. Are you saying a regular 270? Or some type of AR style that has a blot action? I wantthe best gun to double at protection/shooting whitetail.
You do not need a lot of stuff but a punch pin set, barrel block for the vice, AR multitool and torque wrench are a must imo. I have built two.
Just saw this. Looks like you've already gotten some good answers, though. Im not a big hunter so Ill differ to those that have already answered. It can certainly be done, but I wouldn't hunt deer size+ game with 5.56. Too much chance for a maim or an ugly wound followed by lots of tracking rather than a clean kill, even within just 100 yards. Ive seen .270 and .308 recommended, which are great for deer. My personal deer rifle is chambered in 30-06, fwiw.
