    you might be getting the salesman pitch for the Saint. It's a bit pricey for a first time buyer and they may be trying to prey on the lack of knowledge on the subject. here are many quality ARs you can buy for around $600-$800, and then you buy ammo and an optic. Springfields aren't bad, per se, but a bit pricey for someone "just wanting something". Palmetto State Armory is a good company that sells good quality ARs for good prices and they ship it to your FFL and you pay the transfer fee.

    As for the "is it legal to transfer to MI to shoot it", it is legal to transport a gun across state lines to shoot, as long as the gun itself is legal i the selected state.

    I have a Saint that I like very well. It is a pistol version and I have upgraded the snot out of it.
    As mentioned be careful what the guy behind the counter pushes on you.

My wife is much smaller than I am, or at least shorter arms.

    We think with it ready to shoot, would be a good start. There's only about a $50 price difference between the Springfield, and the other one that would require sights, and I forget what else he mentioned, just to compare to the Springfield. I've looked at some AR's online, but a lot of places are sold out. The local shop has them (a few) in stock, and no transfer fee.

    We just want a reliable firearm. It may not matter, but the guy is ex-military, and spent a lot of undivided time, explaining a lot about the AR's. Not any one over another.

    Thanks for the advice.
    I think local gun shops are sometimes worth the price when they offer great service. If you're comfortable with the "salesman" and liked the rifle...buy it...the Springfield Saint is a quality AR and I'd say you've waited long enough. don't take the risk that it may not be there when you go back tomorrow

    I have to agree with this the market is tight right now and if you can pick up a Saint then I say do it. A quality gun that will do you well.

    I would agree with most all of this. My saint has never missed a beat. It is well fit/finished.

    And t answer your other question, I have carried long guns into Michigan many times. I carry them unloaded, in a case, in the trunk or where not readily accessible.

    Seems to be excellent entry level AR-15. Lots of bang for the buck.

    EDIT: My only experience has been at the range, getting to shoot a mag or two from buddies. Do not own one, but would not be adverse to purchasing one.

    ASIDE: The Saint advertising campaign was . . . different (Train Your Fear and all that goofy stuff) and turned me off from buying one for a while, but objectively nothing wrong with the Saint.
