Centerfiresystems sells Star AR's. They worth a damn, or are they some import knockoff? The price really isnt much less then a Buhsy or Armalite so if quality is questionable I certainly dont have a problem upgrading. Its just Cneterfire has my FFL on file which saves a day or 3 and cuts down on paperwork.
Thanks

IIRC Star AR-15's are produced by J&T with "Mil Spec" parts. I have not fired any of the Star ifles, but judging by the look and the great experience I've had with J&T in th epast I think they should be a nice rifle.

DoubleStar Inc is located here in Winchester KY. I have 2 DPMS, a RRA and 2 DoubleStars. Fit/Finish on the DoubleStars are perfect (much better than the DPMS, on par with RRA) and haven't had a problem with either of them yet. Owned them for about 2 yrs and several thousand rounds through each. Neither have chrome lined barrels, but that doesn't bother me much.

I believe KYTechMike is correct about the J&T parts, except for the guts--they're all Colt IIRC. The only thing I don't like about 'em is the goofy DoubleStar logo on the lower receiver

I too have a double star AR. I love the finish and overall quality of the rifle. Accuracy is great. My only complaint is the trigger. Other than that, I wouldn't give it up!

If the price was close to a Bushie, I would go that route. Nothing wrong with J&T, but Bushie makes a very solid product.

I'll stick with Bushies or Colts and to a lesser extent Armalite and RRA. Chrome lined bores are a must for me.

So I'd have no problems picking one up and then later on if I was so inclined dropping a different upper on it (6.8, longer barrel etc) and not have to worry about strange specs not matching or anything of that nature?

They are great!!!! A word of advice. Buy the stripped lower from Centerfire, go to www.j&tdistribution and get prices on uppers. Then make what you want!! You wont regret it. Go to Industry section and IM Jesse.
