This is my first AR. I got a DSA complete lower off gunbroker for $250 shipped and transferred, about 4 months ago (after you guys said it was a good lower). I got a GG&G complete, bolted upper off gunbroker for $715 shipped, last week. The lower build kit is DPSM, and the bolt group is RRA. I think I did ok, and I'm very happy with this gun.
I have 1 other question: I want to buy a stripped lower. I want to get a Bushmaster because I'm originally from Maine, and I like to support Maine business. I've read a lot about how Bushmasters suck, but it seems to be directed at BM's components. Does Bushmaster make a good lower? Which model should I get? Should I forget about Bushmaster and just go with another DSA, or a Stag, or a RRA, etc.? Thanks.
