Default Irreputable companies

I've posted recently about wanting to build my first AR and have asked the same question as countless others about what brands should I look for. With a ton of companies making parts out there, I'll flip the question and ask "What companies should I/we (for the other noobs) stay away from?"

I cant really help on the ones to stay away from but the top two that i like is stag and rock river. I used to own a rock river and never had a problem out of it. I now own a stag full mil-spec 5.56 M4 and would not part with it.

LOL, well, umm...

Any of these new companies that seem to pop up out of nowhere. For me it's easy to share which ones I trust. They are BCM, DD, PSA, KAC, Colt, Spikes, and LMT. I am probably missing some though.

It's always good practice to find a trusted distributor like DSG Arms, PSA, BCM, Aimsurplus, and Rainier Arms. Basicly if it's for sale at any of those places it's GTG.
