So here goes...of course im like everyone else "getting my first AR" (sorry guys I know it must get old) anyway orginal plan was to build one from model 1 sales, however I got to reading reviews and found way to many issues with them...sorry to all you model 1 guys, Im sure they do make some good guns I would rather be safe than sorry though. So I have decided to go with BCM. Thought about going with Daniel my dad has one but a little out of my $$ range (trying to stay under 1k) they seem to get great rep from you guys. I am thinking about doing a upper/lower build to save some cash. So my question is what makes BCM so good? Sorry I am very unfamiliar with them. Do they contract out to government? I am just trying to get some background info on them, I have looked but seem to be able to find very little info on them simply trying to get some input from you guys. Thank you greatly in advance!
