Are you kidding? This is probably the most beaten to death topic ever. Only reason I will answer is because you have a 70SS454. Generally the order is Colt, Bushy, Armalite, RRA, etc.
Whats the 70SS454? Chevelle? I sold a 454 70' Z28 last year.

I say RRA, but it's all personal opinion at this point (and that's all you'll get in this thread)

The better question is what to avoid. You will get better answers without this turning into another colt vs. bushmaster thread.

Of the ones you listed, alot of people here will say stay away from oly arms and I don't know about eagle. All the others are quality rifles by what I have read on this board.

I own a Bushy and have had no problems with it.

LOL...sorry guys but....

my search only goes back 30 days tho im a dues paying member.
so i never saw any of those other threads.

i assumed this was a common "discussion" but couldnt find it any where.

i own 3 colt green labels and am getting a bushy dissipator upper which i plan to put on a dpms preban lower and SEBR.

how do i know if the dpms lower is cast or forged.
in general how good are dpms forged and cst lowers?

70SS454 is a green chevelle with white stripes.
send me an email and i will send a pic.
damn chevelle just got me out of another tight squeeze.
gotta love it.

thanks for bearing with me guys!

If you were a dues paying member, you would have an avatar.

And it would say "Team Member" under your user ID.

Dont think of it as quality, because you'll find that the majors will all feature great, fit, finish, and function. Just go with the safest best

RRA
Bushmaster
Armalite
­Colt
CMT
LMT

I personally prefer RRA to all other brands. I chose to purchase my own weapon rather than use a company provided bushmaster.

Colt is number 1 by a huge margine in my experience. Bushy is second, I have not tried RRA. I have had bad luck with Oly and DPMS and Aramalite.
