You have no idea how true this is. There were literally dozens of "manufacturers" at the SHOT show and those were only the tip of the iceberg.


When any market gets flooded with brands that are all equal in technolgy price will make the choice. I think I am going with Double Star.

Thats just it.Not all of those are equal in technology.

DPMS is what I have. It's a scary accurate 308. I have the LR-308AP4 model.

Ditto.

Not if your requirement is a 7.62; it just became a real short list.

Not for sure but didn't Remington buy up DPMS ? I read that somewhere I thought.

Not all inclusive, and a few brands have had more than one manufacturer cut their receivers. Many companies receive CMT and LMT cuts in the white and finish them themselves. I have not seen a LAR or MMS cut that was finished by a third party company.

LMT = LMT, Lauer(old), DS Arms, PWA, Eagle, Knights Armament, Barrett, Bushmaster (?)
CMT = Stag, RRA, High Standard, Noveske (old), Century (current), Global Tactical, CLE, S&W, MGI (1st batch), Wilson Tactical, (some?) Colt, Ratworx
LAR = Grizzly, Bushmaster (L Prefix), Ameetech, (?)DPMS, CMMG, Double Star, Fulton, Spike's Tactical, Noveske (new)
MMS = Mega, Gunsmoke, Dalphon, POF (forged), Alexander Arms, Stinger, Spike's Tactical(old)
JVP = Double Star, LRB
Olympic = Olypmic, SGW, Tromix, Palmetto, Dalphon, Frankford, (old) Century
Superior = Superior Arms, Lauer (current)
Grenadier Precision
Sabre Defence (?)

I got this from AR-15.com.

When I got interested in the civilian AR a time ago I asked a good friend who had been building them what he liked...he simply stated CRAB-D. I asked what? He said Colt, Rock River, Armalite, Bushmaster, DPMS! I asked why? He said they are the only makers that use forged aluminum in the manufacture of the upper and lower receivers. He also said that after the Bushmaster lawsuit following the D.C. Sniper case that Bushmaster paid dearly for that Colt started making it's pivot, take-down, and trigger pins a different size. I for one own several Bushy and RRA lowers that I assembled into complete rifles. I trust them with my life. I wouldn't trust a injection cast and cooled Olympic arms with any other than a ringer at a horse-shoe tournament.
