Not that milled is necessary - I would have recommended Sonju Industries - but they were bought out and no longer offer their matched/milled receiver sets.

I have no words to describe what you ask here other than:

What have you heard that would lead you to believe there is any difference?

AR15 perfromance, and Wilson Combat get my votes. Also - good barrels are worth the wait. Make a decision, wait fo rit, and you won't regret a rush buy later on.

Riiiiight.

Funny how all the piston automatic weapons (M60, Mk43, 249's and 240's) I ever used in the service (28 years) were just as filthy as the DI M16's I carried.

First I have to ask a question about the two calibers you've selected - they are VERY different in range. Would you mind first describing what you want to use this AR for? What are your expectations...

I think more of this depends on your shooting purposes. What a brake will do is decrease what little muzzle rise you have, but will increase the volume of your discharge. I find that flash hiders are...

I own a NiB and it performs no better than my mil-spec phosphate ones, it's just easier to clean. I think i would spend my money elsewhere on your rifle - I'll use mine, but didn't need it. DI is...

If the game I'm taking is less than 300 yards (depending on the powder an dpill I'm using), and for the most part they are at 100 yards or less - my 6.8 is more than sufficient. Buying the AAC just...

It's not that the caliber or round have some attractive features, but for it's engagement envelope, it's not what I'm looking for. I may look at WC's 7.62 x 40, but neither that nor the BO really...
