Ok, 46: Quentin Defense

47: Sun Devil

48: Windham Weaponry

49: Me!

I'll leave #50 for someone else.

Tikki, you should make a new thread listing all these AR manufacturers and assemblers! Should be a sticky with folks chiming in on how they like the brand they have!

actually I got the list up to 55, and with Q's additions looks like i can add three more....think I'll start a new thread

I think since Quentin Defense doesn't make a complete ar15, I'll leave it out......

Add: Delta Company Arms, AR15 Performance, and White Oaks Armament.

QD does make/assemble a complete AR.

This thread could go on forever but I have a couple comments. Most gun stores have very knowledgeable people who have seen many different type and brands of guns. One persons comment was on cheaper guns there is a bigger profit margin...exactly the opposite the more expensive gun the more we charge. Most of us add a certain % to the cost, so more cost more profit.
Now honest gun dealers would not sell a product they did not know was good. We sell DPMS almost exclusively and they go like hot cakes. I find them to be some of the tightest and best made or I wouldn't sell them. Sell a bad product and it comes back on your store. We are gun manufacturers so we can make a full auto AR15/M16. The one we made was a DPMS, this gun has shot 1,000 of rds and never missed a lick, except for a bad mag. We fire it at machine gun shoots where 20 rd mags are fired one after the other. The gun get so hot you can't even touch the barrel, still keep on firing. IMHO DPMS is a great gun and you won't be disappointed with one, save yourself a bunch of money.

Yes, I have personal experience with DPMS and I like them, and "mark up" is true in any business, the more expensive items naturally have a larger mark up.

Del-ton may not be well known or very expensive. For being a small arms manufacturer out of the Carolinas they are a good quality firearm because they can focus on the low number of ars they produce. The do a lot of business selling parts so you can assemble your own, and they also laser engrave custom logos of lower receivers which gives it a nice personal touch if you're into that kinda stuff.

The thing is, a smart AR buyer isn't going to buy off the rack at the LGS. Why settle for what someone else configured. Anyone who has half a brain and thinks things out can configure a PSA or better yet BCM that's exactly what they want. And in the long run have a better rifle for pretty close to the cost of one off the rack after all the upgrades have been added.

As far as knowledgeable, I rarely run in to a gun salesman who knows more about ARs than I do.

I have a DPMS and love it, so either that or a Stag Arms in my opinion.
