I was loking at a few Bushy barrels but than I came across Model 1 Sales. I want to put together an A2 20" AR. There prices on complete upper receivers are tempting but how good is the quality.

I bought a Model1 A2 16" Hbar upper about a year ago.
Looks good - runs fine - great basic all purpose upper -
cost me $375 complete

You really can't compare Bushmaster to Model 1 Sales. Bushmaster like Colt, is a top-tier manufacturer. Model 1 is simply a repackager/reseller of components and parts of in some cases unknown origin... There's only a $40 dollar difference between the M1S 20" HBAR 5.56 chrome lined and the Bushmaster... Your ultimate choice, but in some things, you do get what you pay for...

What is the "origin" of Bushmaster parts ?

I mated a Bushmaster 16" SuperLight to a Model 1 A2 Upper receiver. Fit, finish, accuracy, everything-perfect. I was very surprised and pleased.

Bushmaster is a manufacturer. They make their parts. Model 1 is a reseller. They buy wherever they can or wherever they can make the most money. Their parts are shit compared to Armalite Bushmaster or Colt.

Bushmaster is a manufacturer as defined by the BATF, but I really doubt BM is running a extruder to make charging handles, injection mold to run plastics, a lathe to make bolt carriers or whatever . . .
I look at BM as a Retailer, LMT or CMT are manufacturers.
I would not debate you on the QC of their parts vs other . . . I have no idea ?
My guess is if you called up [pick your brand name] and offered them triggers for 10% under what they are paying now, you would have a deal.
