Default Who makes what?

Anybody have a list of who gets their lowers from what manufacturers? I keep reading that brand X is the same as brand Y, just stamped with a different logo. This is my first AR build so I am just trying to figure out what I can do to save a few bucks.

If you want to save $$$$$$, buy the lower and upper separate. There's a manufactoring tax you have to pay when buying a complete rifle. They apply to everything from washing machines to DVD players but you save bout 100 bucks if you buy the two separately check on that seriously
