Kinda the same way with firearms, whether shooting a elk or deer with a Savage or a Dakota, the critter won't know the difference, both will get the job done equally.
My main hunting rifle's, AR, and most others would be considered between those two in price and quality.
Not to belittle Savage as the one I own shoots as well as any gun I have ever owned, and Savage's customer service has in the past treated me excellent. Kudo's to them!
Unless your hunting dangerous game the cheaper gun will shoot great groups, as good as the other, and get the job done fine.
Same with civilian AR's, one can pay for far more to fill one's needs than is necessary, didn't say "not better" said "unnecessary".
Like the Camry we own, a forged AR of good quality parts is all that is required, at least in my world.
Yours or others needs/wants may be different.
