After doing a good amount of research for my first AR, I've come to the conclusion that, for the money I have to spend, I can get a quality mid-length rifle from either Spike's or BCM. I'm sure I'll get the usual split decision with this question, but if price were the same, which would you buy and why? I know some will say "Just save a few more hundred dollars and buy a Colt/DD/etc." but I don't need anything more than what Spike's or BCM has to offer and would rather put that money into ammo/range time/optics/mags. I've read the negative comments about Spike's but it seems like most of that is behind them and they've stepped up a bit in quality and customer service. With the prices so close, Spike's is only slightly ahead in my opinion just because they're a Florida-based company. Thanks!
