I hear good things about all three. I bought a RRA ATH in .223 Wylde and bought a 6.8 Coyote Carbine upper to pair with it. I'll post a pic tomorrow but with Federal Fusion MSR 115gr it will shoot 5 shot 100 yd groups inside .75".

Check out Bison for the upper parts instead of PSA.

AR Performance is definitely worth a look as well.

Get with Eric at Blackstone Arms. He's a member here and assembles his uppers with ARP barrels and Superbolts. I have a 12.5 he built that shoots lights out with factory ammo.

I hear their parts and uppers are good. My personal experience is they have the worst customer service. Don't answer phones or emails after they have your money. They promised 4 weeks on an upper. 10 weeks later with no return phone calls or emails, I cancelled my order and got my money back. People had to publicly shame them on the 6.8 forums to get a response. I would have been cool waiting if they just would have communicated with me.

I don't think you will notice any difference at all between those three options. If you want a better rifle, build one with an ARP barrel and bolt as suggested earlier.

Thanks you Sir!! My uppers are worth looking at. They are built with quality parts including the ARP barrel and superbolt, which is one of if not the best shooting 6.8 barrels.

The 6.8 is the #1 choice for hunting deer and hogs in an AR15
