My uncle has a Rock River Arms AR-15. Its guaranteed to shoot 3/4in at 100 yards.

For the most part they are all the same as far as upper and lower receivers go.

Any lowers that are military spec are basically the same thing. You can pay more for better trigger group upgrades

Upper recievers are mostly made by one company, which I believe is CMT. LMT, Stag, RRA, and I believe Bushmaster all use these uppers. They are considered some of the best. You will pay more for better barrels, and such.

I am a big fan of my RRA upper on a PWA Commanda Pre-Ban lower. I love my rifle.

There's no "best" IMO. Some of the best are:
Rock river arms
DPMS panther
Smith and wesson (they have been making some superb AR15 firearms lately)
Bushmaster
And ...... I'm forgetting one.....not sure which....I'll think of it.

Stag arms, that's the one. Thank you whitetailfreek, you posted before I was finished, so I didn't see your post until after I was done. Stag arms is another quality ar15 maker.

I have a Bushmaster, and have no problems with it. As long as you keep em clean your good to go.
Thats all AR's!
I have heard some bad stuff on DPMS in the past but that was a few years back, surely they have worked it out by now.
I was wondering has anyone shot the Remington 308 AR 10 type rifle? I think its the X25.

The top producers of ARs are all pretty similar. Get a good barrel for accuracy. A Les Baer match rifle will have the best barrel or you can get a custom target barrel for ultimate accuracy. I shoot a stock Bushmaster Varminter (heavy 24 inch barrel) and with perfect ammo it shoots less than 1/2 inch groups at 100 yards. All of the top sellers with barrels this size will do the same thing. They are heavy to carry but they are accurate and their accuracy makes them a lot more fun to shoot.
