My Rock River is carried every day, shot almost every day, very accurate, runs 100% with anything I put in it. Its cleaned weekly. 120 round match last weekend, shot great.

LOL no one has really named over 1 yet

I won't even try as my ARs are pieced together from companies such as LMT, BCG, RRA, Stag, Magpul, Rainer Arms, CMMG etc.

I do not know a ton about ARs so take it for what it is worth.

I've got an AR with a CMMG upper and a MEGA lower and it has worked perfect through 800 rds or so. You can learn alot from the GT folks so get the very best you can afford. I use my handguns for home defense so my AR (so far) in for "sporting" purposes. If I was in the market? I would purchase from the "better" upper tyrer selections.

I only have experience with complete rifles from Colt, Bushmaster, and Stag.
Not Surprisingly, I rate Colt best, Bushmaster 2nd( bought mine in 06', decent rifle but I would not by a current production cause of price and quality).

I have to rate Stag lowest because it is currently back being fixed for the third time. I had problems not only with the gun itself(11.5" SBR) but also their customer service, believe it or not.

Colt
Daniel Defense
Lewis Machine Tool
Knight's Armament
Wilson Combat

Some of these companies only make upper assemblies. The lower is only important insofar as it is manufactured to spec.
