Two makes that seem to be overlooked on this forum a lot are Armalite and LMT. thier price point is a little higher than most but thier quality (IMO) is much higher than most without getting into the customs like GAP, Les Baer, JP Pres., etc. I own three Armalites, 2 AR10's and a M15, all run like machines from day one. I looked at everything each time I bought but stuck with Armalite because of fit, finish and experience with them. Oh, and BTW, only Armalite builds AR10's.
