I was building an AR and then ran across a DPMS Oracle that was cheaper to buy complete than to finish building one myself. It was a flat top, I added flip up sites, optics, a different rail system and I've been really happy with it so far...

Guns are like jeeps. You can't hardly find one that does everything. If you want one that will shoot 1 in groups it costs more... if you want one that you can spray heavy ammo and throw in the mud buy an AK.
My philosophy.....by one of everything :)

whats your opinion on "inexpensive" versions that do away with the dust cover and no forward assist.

features that one "must have"? or if your looking to shave $$ why not...

IMO, dust covers and FA are absolutely unnecessary for any normal to heavy use, unless maybe you are in a desert. I have never had to use a forward assist, and the just add weight. YMMV

what you will find is the necessity of the forward assist depends on the care you take of your weapon,and the quality of the ammo you shoot.

if you clean it religiously, and only shoot factory loaded quality ammo, you will likely never need the forward assist... very few weapons even have a forward assist other than the ar-15.

if you shoot LOTS of rounds between cleanings, OR if you shoot hand loaded rounds, or cheap Russian ammo, you may find you need the FA occasionally... and 'need' is a strong word, as many cases, you can simply kick out the 'bad' round and the next round works perfectly.

since most of us will transport the AR to the range in a vehicle, more than likely, in a case of some sort, the dust cover is unnecessary. where it comes into play is if you carry the weapon unprotected, such as slung over your shoulder or at tactical ready while marching, where dust and crap can get up in it... or if your hunting for example, and walking with the weapon for hours in a dirty environment.. OR, if its hanging unprotected in a gun rack in your truck or something. as you know, the first time you pull the trigger, it pops open, and doesnt close until you manually close it, so for operations, its also not necessary.
