There was only a maximum of 10 so under "Others" please put your faves if not listed.
I made a positive comment for each in an attempt to catch the design philosophy of each.

Did not include HK since they basically are the price of a used car and not a realistic target for 99% of forum members.

Since there was a limited number of options I only put in brand where I own or have owned the AR.

I've not handled any other AR's besides the DPMS. You'll get varying opinions on it as well as any other brand. If it goes "Bang" every time I squeeze the trigger than that works for me.

I probably should have put DPMS in there intead of Delton since it is a more established entry level brand.

I am not a snob abut brands either..
but since i had only 10 slots for the poll i figured I list only ARs i have owned.
You can still vote "Other" for DPMS

If I were to buy an AR on the list, it would be a Ruger....just cause I prefer a piston.
That being said, I would be quiet happy with a S+W or Armalite.

Out of your list I went with the SR556, you get a lot of well made gun for the money going with the Ruger.

Armalite, the first and original AR.
I have fired several different brands of AR rifles, seems, I like the Armalite the best.
I own an AR10, nothing fancy, just a fine weapon.

I do not own a "branded" AR. I have one complete 20" heavy barrel that is a mixture of Stag and DPMS that shoots very well. I am building one that is a mixture of many brands with another waiting on the list that will also be a Frankenstein.

However, if I could go out and buy one today it would be a Daniel Defense. I really like their weapons that I have shot and/or handled.
