I had honestly never considered Ruger a reputable AR vendor. I was thinking someone like Colt at the very least. Or BCM, etc. Any of those that you know have an actual pedigree in conflict.
Better reconsider. Colt has a new “econo” line of AR’s called “Expanse”. Cheaper, non Colt parts similar to the many other low cost AR’s available today. They had to do this to be competitive in today’s market of low cost AR’s. GARY.
Colt has gone bankrupt how many times, so I'm not surprised? That being said, I have no desire to own another AR besides my M4 marked 6920.

Kalashnikov USA has been teasing another product, lotta people think it's finally gonna be an x39 rifle. But that's kinda off topic from this.
