If your looking for a good target AR for under 1000, look at Spike or Palmetto Armory, both are good guns. If your looking for a better AR then Spike and Palmetto State Armory, GTO which is a Florida manufacture like the other two guns has AR's starting at 900. They are a new company, but make great guns. They make their own uppers and lowers in house. They also offer NiBoron coated BCG and hammers. They are comparable to some of the best. They have a lot of after market accessories. Heres the site I think you'll like what you see.
