There are many options today in the AR-15 market… from the very cheap to the ultra expensive. Generally the prices fall between $750 and $3500.
But somewhere in there, you find a value point, an exceptional rifle with considerable real world respect, for a decent price. A great such example is the Daniel Defense DDM4 v1… their most popular and best known M4 Carbine.
Here are some of the best video reviews of the Daniel Defense DDM4 v1. The infamous “torture test video” is also below, be sure to watch it.

This rifle is not by any means cheap, with a retail price of $1750. But it can be found for less, i.e. Bud’s Gun Shop offers it for $1350 as of this writing. At that price, this AR-15 seems like the ultimate no-brainer for the person looking to get a great rifle for a good price.
