Okay so I am back in the market for an AR... I know perfect timing right? Anyways I will not be building this one I am looking to purchase the complete rifle. I have the fancy Noveske and all but I am looking for an all out beat the piss out of it and never fail AR. Now I was originally going to go with the Scar just so that it was a different weapon system completely and it still had the durability and reliability that I was looking for. Now I have been doing a ton of research and cannot find a clear winner, let alone top 3 of rifles in 5.56 that are truly ahead of the curb in regards to the industry. The two manufacturers that came to mind were LWRC (m6a2 spr) and the Barrett (rec7). I can't seem to find an accurate comparison between the two, but these are the caliber of rifles that I am looking for. Anything else out there that I seriously need to look at? And please no "just get both" or "just get a mil spec." I am looking for very hi quality. Thanks guys and I hope you all had a good Christmas!

You really ought to be looking at BCM and Colt.

When you can find them again.

I am looking for a piston rig though. Sorry that I forgot to mention that. I have a Colt 20" HBAR Match Target, I am looking to change it up a little bit and try out a piston. Definitely agree on Colt's quality though!

The two rifles you have chosen would answer this question best:

What's the most expensive gas piston AR available?

If you want an all out beat the piss out of it rifle in 5.56, google "filthy 14". Quentin answered your question correctly, as usual.
