Who really makes our AR15's recievers?
I know the companies that finish them of course but who makes them???
How many makers are in total?
How am i to tell who made what reciever and when?
I see Bushies with the same damn markings as Olympic blah blah blah blah etc etc etc

Some one at Bushmaster just told me in all his years he has never seen a upper reciever with 3 letters next to the rear sight..
Yet i have seen a million colts with 3 letters(cmb)but in all his years he hasnt ...what the hell?
I am getting ran around on this issue by people that are suppose to know what they are talking about yet as far as i can tell they dont.
I just dont get it......
Can anybody let us in on this knowledge?

I heard it's a company in Conn. but it's a secret! A secret??? We have a right to know what we are buying and who the hell made it!This isnt a damn plastic toy its a firearm. Why should we not know who truely makes these products?By the way the man at Bushmaster said 3 companies make the forgings... Thats just my .02 on the matter.

What he means is that Colt in is Conn. Colt makes their own lower receivers.

I was thinkin he was making a Colt joke... But even still why are the people at Bushmaster so damn quick to lie and confuse you like they dont want you knowing who makes them... This post has helped a bit so far but as he says there is more [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=118&t=172653[/url]

Taima - There's another thread discussing the same issue: [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=118&t=172222&w=myTopicPop[/url] Basically, it's all a big mystery and kept very hush-hush.
