They are good guns for their price point and intended usage but im still leery of polymer/carbon lowers.
Interesting POV. Do you own an AR/M4?
If not, what kind would you own?
I would like to have a S&W M&P15 or a LE Colt. But, I would settle for a Bushmaster. Not a Carbon 15 though.

If you're desperate for an AR and don't expect the sky high prices to come down then that C15 would have been a good buy especially with four mags. I'd recommend waiting and maybe you can get a S&W Sport for about the same price - or better yet a PSA (just before the panic I put a KISS version together for about $700).
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
