If Vulcan/Hesse/Blackthorne could meet those requirements and undercut on cost I bet by now they'd have been added to the contract, especially in this economy. Same with other makers however this doesn't mean their product necessarily is junk, but it is not "the same as".
From another recent parts thread...
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
