    I'm getting ready to build another AR15 using a Bushmaster 14.5 M4 barrel with a Phantom FS permently attach and I was wondering which brand of upper and lower receiver do the members here recomend using, DPMS or Olympic Arms?.

    My last build I used a DPMS upper and lower and will probally use them again unless there's a better made lower and upper out there for the same price range. Thanks.

    Of those two bagain basement AR's I'll take the DPMS. Five years ago I saw an OLY blow up at a factory demo, I've been biased since then.

    I've got a bushie M4 upper on a stag lower, nearly same price as the DPMS, and the finishes match.

    Stag makes a nice clean lower usually costs about 90-110$

    Would Rock River Arms lower and upper receivers be of better quality (close to Bushmaster or better) then the two brands listed above?. Thanks.

    From personal experience, I'd choose the RRA. Bushmaster is of equal quality in my book, but if you don't like play between recievers, RRA all the way:D

    I'd go Stag or RRA (both are made by CMT and Stag is their retail offering). My RRA upper is right up there with my Bushmaster.
