I had a chance to compare a RRA and a Colt side by side. The Colt trigger sucked. It's a single stage trigger with tons of creep. RRA makes a two stage NM style trigger that breaks like a glass rod.
To top it off, the Colt was $400.00 more! I don't have to tell you which company got my hard earned Lurker bucks.

I know what you're saying. I've seen two post86 dealer sample M16s made on RRA lowers. RRA makes nice receivers. My 9mm upper for my M16 was from RRA. Their 9mm bolt was finished as nice as a Colt bolt and the ARMS rear sight fit it perfectly.
Once this cosmetic ban goes away I'll buy a Colt with eeeeeeeeeeevil features. In some cases I don't mind paying for the name and this is one of them.
I like Bushy for custom stuff like varmint and DCM uppers but I prefer Colt when I'm trying to stick to milspec-ish stuff. Not that I'd pass up a deal on a clean Bushy though....
