Just wondering what u guys thought of these two which one is the best accuracy and reliablility
all info would be apreciated
I only have limited experince with bushmasters, but from what I understand DPMS uses cast uppers and lowers where as RRA uses forged which is stronger. but if all you want is a range gun or somthing to have fun with cast recivered guns are cheaper.
I've built AR15s on RRA, Bushmaster, Eagle Arms, and DPMS lowers. RRA are pretty good all-around, but I did have issues with a few having their buffer plungers installed AFU. At the $80 I spent at the time, this wasn't much of an issue.
I've had some issues with Eagle Arms having their front pivot pin holes machined AFU. To me, this is a little odd since they're part of the ArmaLite family.
Bushmaster was A-OK. I'd take a BM lower without blinking an eye.
DPMS receivers fit well, but their mag release fence is funky-looking.
Had one built on an ASA lower once, too. VERY good lower. The company SUCKS, but the lower is GREAT.
Can't comment on the others.
