    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.

    For top quality, I would have to say Noveske.

    I see this as being a potential train wreck, but what the heck! I’ll play.
    In no particular order.

    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.
