Well i guess if all of them use the same parts from the same supplier then we should all sign a petition to the government to ditch their Colts and send our boys overseas with DPMS rifles, wait better yet, lets save even more money and send them Olympic Arms rifles. Do you mind if i put in a recommendation that your wife will be the one to assemble the bcg's? Hell we could put all the money we saved back into the economy!
Fact of the matter is you have been knocking on everyone saying they have no physical evidence but yet i've not seen one single piece of physical evidence backing your arguement either
Look we get it, you like to buy cheap ar's as you've been lucky so far but it is irresponsible to say the cheap ar's are "the exact same" or "just as good as" a more expensive, higher grade ar. Seriously take the time to look up filthy14, it's a BCM rifle that has gone through 31,000+ rounds with minimal cleaning and an extractor replacement. I'd love to see a newer DPMS do that.. No one is knocking you for buying what you have so why get all defensive about it to the point where your spouting off a bunch of shoddy information?
I know MJ and Quentin enough to know that they are not trying to convince folks that they have to buy what they buy or it's junk. They merely advise based on personal experience or research on what is not up to par and what is and allow the OP to make his/her decision based on their own belief/research. If the OP purchases that which they advised against, they don't flame him/her, they don't tell him/her it's junk, they merely say nice pick-up and enjoy. Their are here to help the novices not spout off a bunch of "mall ninja" garbage as you like to think.
Now i'm sure you'll respond with some long drawn out rant trying to pick me apart. Don't bother because i will not waste my time reading it as you have been dis-proven time after time already, but are so bullheaded you refuse to recognize it.
Bottom line is folks, buy what you like as no one can tell you what to buy, but don't be so naive and tell someone they are wasting their money on a 1000.00 BCM when they could buy a DPMS for 700.00 and it's gonna be the "same exact rifle" or "just as good as". That right there is spreading, as you would say, "bullsh** across the internet".
Have fun and agree to disagree. Let's end the arguement and be friends
