I'm working on building this quick-reference chart. It covers the BASIC configurations available from all of the major manufacturers (those who primarily build complete rifles), and generally only includes cataloged items in order to make a readable chart. I've got a thread in AR Discussion for Additions/Corrections:

www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=118&t=146534

And now, here's the chart:

Troy, nice chart.
I wonder why Colt doesn't make a DCM/CMP rifle?

Troy your chart is GREAT! A very nice tool for buyers.

Just as a note, DPMS has 1:8 twist as an option (or standard) on everything but their Race Gun that comes with 1:8 only. DPMS also has a variety of lightweight 16" and 20" barrels.
We are living in a golden age. The past was pretty awful; the future will be far worse. Enjoy!

Same way any "budget" manufacturer stays in business - by catering to customers whose main concern is initial purchase price.


Nice tool, Troy!!!

Now that's the reason I joined this site. People like Troy doing research like that and posting it for the rest of us.

Great Job!!!

But Troy, what exactly does this chart mean to all those who say Colt is BY FAR the best AR on the market?

I'm worried for them. They've dedicated themselves to a cause without merit. We might need an ARFCOM 12 step program to "deprogram" the propaganda they've suffered from for so long.

"Class, we all know Colt makes a very nice AR, so lets start with that premise, mmmmm k? Now remain calm.....I have some shocking news for you. They have nothing on Bushmaster. The two companies produce rifles of about identical quality." "Martha....could you run and get us some tissues please.....make it a LOT of tissues. Thanks" "Hey, you in the back, put that razor down! And you up front, what do you think you're doing with all those pills? Don't make me come over there.....and think of your Colt AR, what will happen to it when you're gone? Come on people, keep it together."

Troy, in the thread that you linked to, budam posted that he contacted Oly Arms and they verified that their recievers are hard coat anodized.

Under "Armalite/Prebah Rifles" remember that the AR-180 IS such a rifle.

Because (choose one)
A. They can't build accurate rifles?
B. They don't understand the market?
C. They're always bankrupt, so can't produce another model?
D: ???? ---> Come up with your own!

Colt and bushmaster both identical.
Your ass hurts M4. Last I cheked you cant seperate the two halves with out a screwdriver, the trapdoor in the stock is made of the cheepest plastic(BM is more beefy with a metal latch) and what about that plastic buffer(once again metal used on the BM).

Hey BALOO, keep strokin' the barrel of your Colt, it just might cum for you one of these days...you friggin' nit wit.

"The two companies produce rifles of about identical quality."

I own pre-ban AR's from both Bushy & Colt and the differences in NO WAY justify the rediculous price differences. Thanks for the input, a real slice of genius.

A) No they don't. ***See chart above.***

B) Slap a little Vagisil on that sore twat of yours, the swelling will go down, I'm sure.
