The one I'd go for is the Colt 6920. As close to MilSpec as you can get and the best resale value. But more expensive that the others except for the boutique brands.

and here is why you should get a Colt:

AR's come in so many flavors...hard to pick one.
RockRiver Varmint comes with a competition-quality two-stage trigger, free float handguard, 1/8 twist and excellent quality.
My choice.

I like Armalite and Rock River. I would also like to play with one of the new S&Ws.

I built a nice Stag Arms, but Rock River is kickass. I stayed away from Colt because of their use of proprietary parts. Not sure if someone else mentioned this, but the poll mentions 5.56 NATO, .223 and the AR-10. I would love an AR-10, which shoots a .308, though they're expensive and hard to find.

So, 5.56/.223 would be Rock River as my #1 pick. For the AR-10 .308, whatever brand makes them is fine with me!

good luck finding a colt, im pretty sure they are military issue only now. unless you can find a good used one.
if your on a budget, dpms sells a bottom of the line for just under 1k.

for a .308 I would go with a non AR platform. Ive got a remington 700 heavy barrel .308 and that thing is a tack driver

Yeah, not to bash a previous post, but you most likely won't find a good AR-15 for $600, even if you build it yourself. AR-10's are going for over $1,000 now, and the price of ammunition almost makes it not worth having.

If you want to go piston, go with LWRC. If you want Direct Gas, go with Noveske or Knights Armament.

The Colt 6920 is great. If you can find one and pay 200-300 more than other ARs.
