I am planning to build my first AR, and have finally narrowed the barrel down to the three brand Spikes tactical, BCM and Daniel Defense. I dont have any experience with ARs, so can some body give me any ideas if the quality of these barrels. Are they pretty much the same quality or one is better/way better over the others?
I list the linkages below:

Spikes tactical, complete upper , $500

BCM,( ADD BCMs bolt carrier group and charging handle and handgrilde), $600

Daniel Defense(Add BCMs BCG,CH, HandGuilde and DPMS accessories) , $550

Go with the one I have.

For an extra $100 you'll be getting either a BCM or DD seems like a no brainer to me but hey its your cash.
