As much as I'd like to everyone produce a quality AR it won't happen. Just think how nice it would be to be able to answer a "what's the best AR" thread w/ ANY or ALL OF THEM.

Word is some people already do :-P

In all reality, I think there is no way for us to NOT benefit from another manufacturer getting the TDP. There has got to be a trickle down effect or something, the more high quality ARs the better!

I agree but it can also have a negative affect. I wonder if there will be a watering down as it gets passed around.

Well one negative I can picture already is salesmen pitching the red-headed stepchild Carbon-15, saying it's the civilian version of the issued M4. 'Course some do already!

I'm sure their is a lot of politics in this decision by the government, maybe the presidents financial backer is the CEO of Remington(which owns bushmaster and I think DPMS). I feel bad for our soldier getting these weapons, cause they aren't Colts. I don't own a Remington or Bushmaster, but I've them in the past. I might buy another Remington but I doubt I'll own another bushmaster.

Problem is Remington and Bushmaster are built in the same factory using pretty much the same parts. Of course that won't be true of the M4s going to the Army. (I hope!)

Look at the bright side. This just might cause them to build a top quality Carbon -15!
