If they were all about the same price what would you pick?
My personal humble opinion is if you plan on selling your AR-15 somewhere down the road to your typical buyer, then I would go with the Colt brand name.
You can always tell them that each bolt and barrel is magnetic particle tested...if the QC guy is actually paying attention to each and every bolt & barrel coming off the assembly line that is.
Other than that, I understand that most uppers and lowers come from only a few forges, and the best are forged from T-7076 aluminum or something like that.
If I was planning on keeping this AR, and wanted to reduce aftermarket purchases, I would probably prefer a mid-length gas barrel and a 2-stage trigger from the get-go.
