Considering purchasing my first AR, don't have any experience with them, and looking for suggestions. I would like to keep the budget low on this if possible, and the Oracle by DPMS looks to fit the bill pretty well. I would love to hear to feedback from people who own or have shot these?

I was looking at these too but the barrel looks pencil thin.

I have used AR15 and M16 since about 1977.  Of the guns that are out there I prefer the Rock River. There are some custom guns or custom uppers that are way better than most.  White Oak Armory makes the best target gun uppers.  Wilson Combat and La Rue Tactical make the best tactical uppers. But there are specialty companies like  DTAC http://www.dtechsuperstore.com/mili%20Guns.htm who make uppers in special calibers other than .223  The DPMS guns are OK guns but I am quite convinced that Rock River is better for about the same price.  I prefer the midlength gas system with the collapsable stock and a flat top reciever and I like a la Rue mount and a Compact ACOG and a Smith Vortex flash suppressor.  The trigger can cost quite a bit to get a good on however if you buy new from Rock River they will add their match trigger for about $50. extra   vs two to three hundred for the other quality triggers.  Do not buy a colt with a large pin reciever if you can help it.  If you go to Gunbroker you can order one pay with a credit card and find a dealer local to you to do the paperwork and recieve it for you for a small fee.

If you are looking for budget stuff, check out www.del-ton.com  I have built probably 20 ARs for myself and friends.  I have used parts from Rock River, Stag, Bushmaster, DPMS, Sun Devil, Mega, Rainier Arms, Del-ton, and probably some others.  But in my limited experience Del-ton is as good as any of them for just basic parts.  I have a complete delton parts upper that has well over 10,000 rounds, it is on its second delton barrel and it just works all the time.  I have been very happy with all the parts I have used from them.  The prices are great, CS is great, and they parts just work.  Which is always a good thing.

I agree with Wes on the midlength gas system, they are the way to go.
