Spend about $500 bucks more n get up to the 2K $$$ range and get a Bison Upper, stainless 18" Mid Length Gas System or a 20" barrel with the Intermediate Gas System, 6.8SPC, 1/11 twist, stainless, M4 feed ramps, PRI Gen III Free Float Forearm, Muzzle Brake of your choice (Ops Inc is my preference), lower of your choice, 1st Samco Pistol Grip, Magpul PRS Buttstock. The buttstock is a wicked piece of furnature. Adjustable cheek rest, length, its pretty nice....and it feels like a nice heavy piece of furnature rather a plastic airsoft buttstock. And it'll give you the accuracy you're looking for. Although....if you dont reload....it'll end up costing you about $23/box o 20..........
The rifle listed above is what got me started into reloading a few months ago.

Get a Colt. You can't go wrong, and the prices have finally dropped.
