    AR-15

    Looking for an AR .223
    Anything considered......
    Ultimately lightweight 14.5 - 16inch suppressed, or at least it will end up that way.
    Would prefer Acat however Will look at Ecat
    Thanks

    Sorry,
    Will consider most things, however to give you an idea I was looking in store today at a windham src (I think it's called) the Burris mount a vxr leupold illuminated scope and hardy titanium suppressor.
    I'm open to criticism haha or encouragement.

    Tahrzan I'm not an AR expert but in my opinion you should look for a milspec-style upper WITH shell deflector,dust cover and forward assist.
    These features may not be needed on the range but are very useful in many hunting/pest control situations.

    The Windham SRC you were looking at is a very nice rifle. There is a lot to be said for buying a factory rifle as your first AR (including the warranty!).
