I'm suprised there haven't been alot already.

You'll hear alot of opinions, usually this is what you'll hear:

1) Armalite - Good quality, good customer service

2) Bushmaster - Good quality, good customer servie.

3) Colt - Good resale value, various comments regarding quailty and customer service.

4) DPMS - Have heard some good things about them, A friend has one of their DCM type uppers and it was pretty good.

Now, MY PERSONAL opinion is go with the Bushmaster, Then Armalite or DPMS.
I have several Bushmasters and have had NO problems with them whatsoever other than the typical "poor quality magazine" caused a jam...

There are some other good ones like Sierra Precision, Les Baer, Wilson Combat, etc it just depends upon what you're looking for and what you are willing to spend.

Buy the Limited Edition Group Purchase Rifle.
You won't find a better made rifle with the features it has for $200 over the $660 it is being sold for!

I think we all posted at the same time.

I forget the name of the company, they also make some really nice 1911's.

This is a good buy!!!!!!!

Unfortunately, I'm in the PRC [:(]
