Stay with the big makers like Forster, PTG, Clymer or Manson.

The rule is to stay with the same manufacturer for all of the gauges for a single chambering.
So if you get a 223 Forster GO gauge, get the NO-GO and the FIELD from Forster as well.
Don't mix brands within a set of gauges.

"Used" or "For sale" gauges....The description should actually read: Only dropped a couple of times, my brother-in-law said he could still force the bolt closed after 3-4 tries, other mishaps may have occurred, they look almost new, etc, etc.
