In this episode of TFBTV, James Reeves gets his hands on the cheapest 5.7x28mm pistol you can buy: The $350 dollar Palmetto State Armory Rock 5.7.

The Cheapest AR-15 vs. The Most Expensive (PSA vs. Daniel Defense)

In this episode of TFBTV, James Reeves gets his hands on the brand new Daniel Defense M4A1 RIII, which is the famed Daniel Defense DDM4, but equipped with the new RIS III handguard used by Special Operations. But at $2,300 MSRP, why would anyone pick up the DD M4A1 RIII, especially when you can get cheaper AR-15s for $400 and less these days? James puts this to the test by buying and building a budget Palmetto State Armory (PSA) AR-15 on and Anderson Manufacturing lower, two of the cheapest manufacturers in the AR-15 business. To make the contest a little more fair, James spends an extra $100 or so on a stainless steel barrel for the budget build, and compares accuracy between the two, as well as discussing the pros and cons of each. Check today’s video to see which one comes out on top.
