If you get the Colt, you will not need to ream the chamber; all Colt ARs are chambered for 5.56.

Get the Colt.

Ok. I see the general consensus is to ge the Colt.
Here is another question.
I came across this Bushmaster Carbon 15. It is chambered for the 223 and the 556. You also get a complete upper for 22. All for $995.
Any thoughts about this carbon lower and upper or experience?

Sincerely,
Karl in Colorado

The Carbon 15 is a poor choice. Some people swear by them but you see a lot more complaints.

A few swear by them. Far more swear AT them.

I wouldn't have one as a gift.

Now, I love the IDEA of a carbon fiber Ar. But the current state of EXECUTION is less than desireable.

At least, IMHO!!

Plus you can always spend $120 and get a .22lr BCG instead of a whole other upper.

Get a BCM or Spikes and save a couple hundred dollars, they are if not identical rifles, Colt just has the name.

Spikes isn't on this chart but would be equivalent to BCM and Colt

Sorry that's not right. Daniel defense would be near colt, spikes and PSA would be after BCM
