The Colt thread got me wondering what the hive mind thinks about this.

List your top 5 AR15 manufacturers in order.

You can list more than 5 if you wish.

As predicted, there is no huge difference in quality between most manufacturers. Of course there is (and will be shortly demostrated) more than enough kool-aid to go around, for most brands.

I was happy with my Bushmaster but sold it as it wasn't a "real" flat-top; the rail was raised.

I am happy with my S&W.

There isn't any major brand that I would reject out of hand for quality issues. There may be some 'minor' brands that I would avoid out of ignorance of their quality (or lack thereof), but that's it.

Vulcan - Used by Special Olympic Forces
Olympic - same Olympics as above but not officially issued
Mattel - My Grand Father was issued an M16 when he fought at the Alamo and it said Mattel on it. We lost because it jammed so much.
Century - Same quality as their fine Cetme rifles.
Colt - They make parts for Century

That can't be true. We all know that Colt doesn't make any parts. They get everything from CMT.
