re: Official AR-15 thread


We need a AR ranking.

I know that would be subjective, but there may be a general consensus on some brands.
Maybe:

Top tier
Mid-tier
Lower-tier

While certainly a new guy to the civilian market, personally I would prefer the actual brands in this order. Someone else would have to answer on individual models and weapons. (Top to bottom)

RR or BM
BM or RR
Sig
S&W

if i had to give you an opinion based off of my research.

I'd suggest BCM and Colt over all of the above.

*edit*

to answer the "why" part, if you can find my other posts in this thread, I think i may have linked some very useful informative links that completely compare the components of each company.

Here's one small check list that covers a couple of the companies you mentioned

re: Official AR-15 thread


btw, i think the RR has the 1:7 twist that helps stabilize bullets for accuracy at a larger range with a higher grain. the rest of those have a 1:9 twist i believe. which is "worse." but all of those are fine guns.

All 10 reviews for it seemed good. I got one anyway

for 70$, I think I'll be happy with one.

Thought I would grab two, just for backups, but did the Life Member to the NRA for $300 and decided that was enough money for today
