I want to build from a kit, a post ban ar-15 a2 20" HBar. I have checked the prices and they are about the same. My problem is which one do I choose? I don't know there reputations or quality. These are the companies DMPS, M&A, Model 1, J&T, and Olympic. I live in Washington so Oly will charge taxes. What order would you choose and why? Thanks for the help.

PS
anyone have Pete from NH

I would think that Oly would add local tax [:(], but I'm not sure. Pete doesn't have a website that I know of, wish he did. He does have a space in the Industry section, listed under Legal Transfers (see [url=http://www.ar15.com/forums/forum.html?b=2&f=86] Here [/url]) and advertisements all over the Equipment Exchange, just do a search for Pete-In-NH [;)] Jamie

I would buy from J&T, because one of the owners has a 5 month old son that is well on the way to having a very expensive firearms habit (already has 9 guns, 2 of which are suppressed). [NI] Seriously check out our website and see if we've got a configuration that you're looking for. [url]www.jtdistributing.com[/url] Jesse

Ok, so I wasn't paying attention. I was too busy feeding the spoiled boy. [:E] Jesse And he's not spoiled yet, he doesn't even have an AR yet (the correctly numbered lower has not been made yet). OK, maybe he is, I left out the fact that the M-249 was made for him, so that makes 10. At least he lets me play with it, for now.

I too have heard great things about 'Pete-in-NH,' so I decided to get an upper and some other parts from him. I hope he takes credit cards. And beware of dealers telling you that their parts are 'FN' parts. A while ago, I bought an upper (numbered flat top) that was made by 'FN' and it was the worst piece of crap I've seen. It would not fit correctly on my ASA lower. The gap between upper and lower was big enough to see through! The finish wasn't that great either... Bushmaster and RRA uppers were great on my lower. Especially the RRA. Oh, last week, I read that FN doesn't sell their parts to the public! Now, who tells people that their uppers are from FN? Makes you go, hmmm....

Quoted from [url=http://groups.msn.com/TheMarylandAR15ShootersSite/partsfaq.msnw]The Maryland AR15 Shooters[/url]
FN is currently a supplier of M16A2s (and other small arms) to the U.S. Military. By contract they cannot sell their parts to anyone else. So IF these are really FN parts (how can you tell in most cases?) they were either stolen or are factory rejects (do you want to use a factory reject bolt or barrel??- KABOOM). Many gunshow and 'bottom feeder' dealers claim their parts are 'FN' - because people will buy them based on the name (and won't buy them if they were told they are cheap imported castings). They cannot backup their 'FN' claim with documentation, and in fact they could not be legal good quality production parts. At best the parts could be from suppliers that sell to FN (then again who knows? Are they first rate or cheap Chinese parts?). In summation "FN parts" is usually a dishonest scam - avoid parts that are claimed to be 'FN'.
