Yeah it bothers me that Remington adds a premium to their AR when it's really a BM or maybe even DPMS. I will say they look good in camo. I do love my Remingtons though, an old Wingmaster 870 with 3 barrels I got back in 1975 and an 1100.
Wouldn't mind one of their new 1911s either, good price and it sounds like a good basic 45.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
