To the OP, frankly I would disregard anything coming from anyone who doesn't or hasn't owned both. Since I qualify in that regard I'll add my unbiased opinion. They are both rock-solid high quality carbines designed and built for hard and serious use. They both work as advertized and will continue to do so under extreme conditions. In short, either one is G2G. Lots of people have their "pet brand" and they sometimes get carried away in their bias, but in the end it all comes down to how well they run and how well they hold up, especially concerning reliability. Both the brands you mentioned and several others you didn't are known to fulfill that requirement, so just get the one that you want, run the crap out of it until you know it's bug-free and trustworthy (all of them can have unseen issues from the factory that only show up after you push 'em a little), and once you've proven to yourself
that it will be there for you when the chips are down you won't need
anyone else to tell you what's good and what's not. Again, just my opinion.
