A .22lr for self defense is terrible at best. You can get a VERY GOOD AR in 5.56 for $350-$400. And I mean VERY GOOD. Again, in 5.56. Which IS AN EXCELLENT DEFENSIVE ROUND. UNLIKE THE .22LR!Mechphisto wrote: ↑Mon Nov 25, 2019 7:15 pmAlso, I've never owned an AR before, so I'm not very knowledgeable... Am I correct is understanding all I'd need would be that $130 lower you linked, this $340 22LR upper I'm linking, and aside from magazines, that's a complete and functioning gun?lailr wrote: ↑Mon Nov 25, 2019 2:53 pmOn sale at PSA again.

Palmetto State Armory makes VERY GOOD AR's. So does S&W (Smith & Wesson). And no they are not "really poor quality". I think at least 4 or 5 people have told you that in this thread....
Second, PSA has different grades of AR uppers....usually they are broken down into their "Freedom", "Classic", and "Premium" lines. Their VERY GOOD AR would be the Premium line which typically come with HPT and MPI chrome lined CHF barrels made by FN, along with other mil-spec parts. Those $350 ones are more of a hobby-grade rifle. They are DECENT ENOUGH for most folks, who typically only shoot a couple hundred rounds a year through them, and never run them hard.
