Default Opinions on who makes the best AR-15.

Just curious on some opinions of the best brand of AR-15's. Tend to lean towards Ruger firearms.

Well, usually people tend to go by tier. I on the other hand would just go with a Colt or Bushmaster, mainly a Colt 14.5 for me . You can also take the Stag or Rock River arms into consideration.

All of the above have either a military or police contract. It also depends on what you will be using the rifle for.

Bravo Company bravocompanyusa.com makes some of the best uppers. Their lowers are excellent too. I have one of their 16" mid-length hammer forged uppers. That baby is solid. Wouldn't trade it for anything. Just my opinion. LMT'S Lewis Machine and Tool are awesome too.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

You might want to lean away from Ruger ARs and toward Colt, BCM and Daniel Defense.

Spikes are good too. If I could afford it, I would get a colt though.

Del-ton. They make rifles from entry level to top tier. Quality firearms.

there will be many different opinions on who makes the best AR.

really depends on what your intended usage is. casual plinking" target shooting? vamint or game hunting? competition?

how much is your intended budget? what can you live with or without as far as features?

my older Bushmaster M4A2 16" Carbine suits my needs quite well and does what i need it to each and every time. so is the Bushmaster the best? it is for my needs and purposes. are there better AR's than my Bushmaster? yes there are, but probably at a higher price with features that would be of little use to me for the money spent. so what's best for one person may not be suitable for another persons needs. so what's best is pretty vague and open in interpritation.

Well said axxe. Also keep in mind that the AR-15 platform is one of the most customizable rifles out there. If your on a budget don't be afraid to do a little research on who makes the most dependable essential parts cuz you can always build and customize everything else later. I personally own a Rock River 5.56 and haven't had a problem yet.

LMT in my opinion hands down the best. I got the CQB-16 about little over a month ago, love it.
