Does any member have experience with .223 Armalite rifles? How well do they shoot? How well do they compare to Colt and Bushmaster, etc? Who makes the best AR today. I am interested in current production rifles. Any information and or opinions would help. Thanks. ARH

IMHO Armalite is the best, but Bushmaster is no slouch. And check this out... [url]http://www.armalite.com/sales/specials/harrison/harrison.htm[/url] [i]Why didn't anyone tell me the link only showed a picture?[/i]

I think they are the absolute best. I have nothing but postban ArmaLite's, preban Eagle Arms (same company), and some original ArmaLite AR180's. All are top notch.

I love mine. The quality of fit and finish is as good as it gets. Mine are accurate and very reliable. Lifetime warranty on them is also a plus. I don't know where you live in Georgia, but if you are in the Atlanta area go to Bernie's Sports center. Bernie's carries a lot of Armalites usually and can get them sooner than most other gun stores. No Slack!

Same here- FREX, the quality of the castings on the upper is excellent- no pits, swirls or mold marks, as I see on Bushies and Olys. (Others' mileage may vary....)-Armalite puts out a nice, no BS gun that has had a lot of care put into its manufacture. Colt? I won't buy Colt due to their appeasement politics. No slack!

Plenty of excellent production ARs to choose from, but, IMO, no one builds 'em better than ArmaLite. Eddie
