Default Top tier gun companies.

Let's get something straight right off the bat! Totally my fault for interjecting politics top-side.

Now.....Which gun companies produce THE best, top tier quality guns, rifles, AR's. Those that are above Wilson Combat, Daniel Defense, LaRue.

Thank you!

This.

Everyone has their own opinion on what "the best" means. Spec out what you want and have it built by a reputable craftsman.

Buying top tier typically indicates a significant familiarity with a particular platform and a desire for something special or unique.

Buying just any stock gun from a top tier firm is like buying a $4000 off the rack suit. It just isn't done.

Is there something specific that you want or are trying to accomplish ?

Jamie at Wolf Precision. I spent a weekend at his shooting school a few years ago. Guy next to me was shooting one of Jamie’s .223 rifles out to 1000 yards no issues.

Anything 1911/2011 go to Akai Custom Guns, SVI, Phoenix Trinity. These are the top builders for competitive shooters and just... WOW. I have some of their work and you won't be disappointed. Akai is in South Florida and Shay is a really good dude.

Check out one of our local companies. Diamondback makes some nice stuff. You can go visit and watch them build it. I really like my Noveske stuff as well.

That’s a loaded question if there ever was one but I’ll offer my input.
Cant really speak for AR’s so I’ll leave that to others. But for bolt action hunting rifles, I think a Cooper 52 or 54 action in their Classic stock is about as nice an out of the box rifle that you could ask for.
