Odder still, nobody's voted for Armalite as of 1451 on 28/09/04...


Well, they got a vote as of 1452. As you were.

Where is DPMS?

I just got a virtual spanking, I voted Armalite simply because I have always heard "they are the best" (I do not own one) while giving my Bushmaster 20" HBAR a kick in the guts, I will add though (just to keep straddling the fence) that the Bushy has never given me a moments trouble.

Colt's got twelve votes and they don't even want to be a civvy dealer anymore.

Roll your own.

Lowers, as long as they're forged, are all pretty much the same. I've heard of some problems with mag fit in Bushy lowers though, now that I think of it.

I think Bushmaster is a better firearm and I voted that way, but RRA has too good of deals to pass up.

Don't you mean who is the best MANUFACTURER?
The best DEALER is ADCO Firearms.

RRA gets my vote for best price to performance/quality ratio, and nobody beats ADCO when it comes to RRA.

Olympic for me...

Oh, and isn't it odd that despite the bar graph being off, the poll numbers are


[ 8 ] ARMALITE [ 4.73% ]
[ 78 ] BUSHMASTER [ 46.15% ]
[ 29 ] COLT [ 17.16% ]
[ 47 ] ROCK RIVER ARMS [ 27.81% ]
[ 47 ] OLYMPIC ARMS [ 27.81% ]

Total Votes :: 169

Oly & RRA tied for #2 spot, how nice...

I don't see why some people hate Oly. Their forged receivers are right up there with BM, Colt, RRA, or anybody else. Their match barrels are supposed to be very accurate. Their R and D department is top notch and responsible for many of the innovations we commonly see today. And best of all, their prices are reasonable. So what more do you want?

why so few votes for armalite??

This poll is probably answered only by percentage of what people own.

Most people are IGNORING what the guy asked in the first place.......

who do you think makes the best ars considering

People are blabbing on about customer service, hearsay, price, mil-spec'ness.....

Reading comprehension around here is at an all time low.

Ok, now my two cents......

Barring HISTORICAL issues.... I would say they are all neck and neck in reliability and accuracy.... across a sample of ALL of their product lines. Most current production AR's have ditched SAAMI chambers.... and gone to Wylde or NATO spec, many buy parts from the same foundries, etc.... so I am going to have to say reliability is going to be a tossup.....

Oly has the SUM, which is one sweet barrel, Bushy has the varminter, RRA has their varmint barrels, Armalite and Colt have match barrels, so I am going to say ALL of the vendors best barrels are going to be sub-MOA capable... and better than most shooters reading this.

Outside of reliability and accuracy, there are many other factors that might lead you to one manufacturer or the other..... 4150 steel in bushy barrels, low price of RRA, cult-like following of Colt, allegiance to the Armalite branding, chrome/non-chrome lining offerings, etc.... But then, none of THOSE factors are part of this poll.
