How much should I be lookin to spend? I know nothing about makers etc.
I would suggest waiting a few weeks until some of the craziness dies down. Your still going to pay a premium. Some keys to look for is make sure the upper and lowers are made from 7075 Aluminum. You want a barrel that is made of 4150 steel and chrome lined. Rock River, Stag and Smith and Wesson all make quality AR platform Rifles. If your patient you should be able to find one in the 1000-1300 range. Now that the threat of an AWB is over prices will start to come down. Parts availability will keep things up for a few months.
