We would need the exact models or links would be best to compare apples to apples . I've noticed DD to have more upgrades on there rifles come as standard free float rail better stock nice trigger etc . that brings there price up and with out knowing what models you are comparing to each other it's hard to say what's a good deal for the money .
All the manufacturers you just mentioned make great rifles and you will not go wrong with any of them . I will say again that I would not spend 1k on a standard AR with standard M4 stock handgaurds and trigger . You can find those for $900 and less all day long .
Tolerate- allow the existence, occurrence, or practice of something that one does not necessarily like or agree with , without interference.
Anyone else find it sad that those who preach tolerance CAN'T allow the existence, occurrence, or practice of something that they do not necessarily like or agree with , without interference
