I've noticed when doing searches for opinions in google on different AR rifle brands, it seems that no matter what brand I type in, most people who have it seem to be happy. I've tried DPMS, Del-ton, Windham Weaponry, and others that feature price tags in the mid $500 range at my LGS, and the vast majority of owners writing on sites like this seem to be happy with it. I'm just wondering if people here could give me some input on brands to avoid. So far, I haven't really found any. But it's a little hard to believe since AR rifles can range in price from the mid $500s to a few thousand. The lowest priced ones obviously don't have as much quality, QC, or whatever drives up the price, but that doesn't seem to make their owners unhappy. So now I'm curious as to whether or not I could be safe buying a "bargain-priced" AR. However, I'd like to avoid the junk ones.
