    I'm in the market for an AR again now that prices have come down. I understand that BCM and Colt both make high quality products, and BCM has great customer service and a lifetime warranty.

    However, I've been seeing Colt 6920s on Gunbroker, brand new for $1000-1100. A complete BCM rifle would cost about the same amount. The whole point of me considering BCM is that they were supposed to be Colt quality at a much lower price. Given the situation, which would you recommend and why?

    Daniel Defense, LMT and Charles Daly are also being considered, as they're around the same price point as well....

    TIA

    Colt will hold it's value more due to the name.

    Wouldn't be quick to make that call. Lots of guys on forums are suggesting Colt before BCM in a lot of cases.

    Any opinions on the Daniel Defense M4? They're $1250 on gunbroker which puts it at a huge value advantage over Colt, LMT, and BCM. Every review I've seen has been great and accuracy seems very good out of the box.

    BCM.

    Colt's equal in quality, and Colt's better in customer service and availability of upper options for a complete 1-vendor purchase.
