Does it cost more? Yes. Is it worth it? IMO, yes.
I really dislike posts like this with no information as to why Colt is better. Are they a good brand? Absolutely. Would I trust my life to a Colt AR? Absolutely. Would I have any doubt about using Colt parts in a build? Absolutely not.
But, just making a general statement about Colt being the best just fuels the fire that you are just paying for the name. I think we should focus on what makes a Colt AR a good AR as opposed to it being good because it's a Colt.
I'm sorry to offend your delicate sensibilities with my post. I certainly wasn't implying what you read into it.
On the other hand, I figured we all knew the history of Colt rifles and why they're regarded as an industry standard.
BTW, I noticed you didn't offer the OP any
suggestions about what to purchase.
I'd suggest the next time you write a post you take a positive approach.
