So I am in the market for a well built AR. I am looking in the 1500 dollar range and so far my search has led me in the direction of the LaRue predatar. I am not going to be putting a lot of bells and whistles on it just optic, foregrip, and possible light mount. I want something in the sub 7 lb range to start with and am thinking about using this gun for competition and just an all around range shooter. I have looked into the M&P 15-TS and it seems to be a similar build to the la rue and similar price. I am leaning to the la rue but am open for opinions!
Irons - Troy or magpul (depends on my optic)
Optic - Aimpoint or Leupold (both companies have rigs I am interested in)
Foregrip - LaRue, Magpul, or Troy (Similar setups in each brand; maybe just the la rue thumb grips?)
Light Mount - La Rue (I have a streamlight pt-2L nothing too special but 200 lumens for low light situations)
Ambi Controls - Troy has ambi safety, bolt release, and mag release and then badger ordnance left hand charging handle
These are all of the things I could ever think of putting on the gun.
Thanks any input!

I have a LaRue DMR upper on one of their lowers. They make very high quality weaponry. If you can afford it, go for it. Mine is a little heavier than what you're looking for, but with the fore end and barrel profile of the PredatAR, you should be fine. But once you buy something from them, you CAN'T STOP!

S&W M&P AR15 T. Free floating barrel, 1-8 or 1-9 twist 5r metinite barrel. Has forward assist and dust cover. All the people I know with the 15 T love them. All the people I know with the Sport model are adding mods to just about make or surpass the "T" in add-ons.
AND, S&W will take care of you for a lifetime.
