I am looking to purchase my first AR-15 in an M4 configuration (or as close as I can legally get). I have heard good things about both Fulton Armory and Rock Island Armory. Has anyone had the opprotunity to compare these companies' products? If so, what are the pors and cons of each? Finally, is COlt really worth the extra money?
Thanks - yet another newbie to the field

Rock River is the best all around choice other than Bushmaster. I don't have any experience with Fulton, but Rock River always offers great quality.

I put together an all RRA M4 and its an excellent weapon. Shoots flawlessly, no problems whatsoever and really like it. Don't know much about Fulton but agree about being rather pricey.

Fulton Armory--Pricey? Well, I guess that depends on what kind of rifle you want:

A "Liberator-M4" costs a grand, and ships to your dealer quickly. It includes a 4-rail gas block, a 4-rail FREE FLOAT handguard, side sling swivels front and rear (QD), ergo grip, gapper, and accuwedge installed.

Forgetting about the grip, gapper, and accuwedge, how much would that rifle cost if ordered from Bushmaster, and how long would it take to get?

On the accessories side, Fulton is certainly not cheap, which is why I didn't get my Aimpoint, mount, or rear sight from them: those I put on (or will put on) myself. Back when I got it the flip-up front was included (and the rifle price higher), now a $75 option.

I think I got a fine value, since I specifically wanted a rifle with a flip-up front so I could mount my Aimpoint low (GG&G std. mount direct to flat-top receiver).
