I think intent here is really the point, seriously premium is often in the mind in ARs. Most manufacturers get their parts from the same subcontractors, maybe with a slightly different finish. Milled, forged BY WHO? In many cases if you tracked the parts they came from the same producer, to slightly different specs and tolerances.

I have gone to sell ARs that I put a lot of money into, and had someone argue that all of those upgrades were simply personal preferences. Ok, then move on and buy something else..

Was same fellow then claiming that night sights on a pistol made it worth more money, which I would agree with, but isn't that also a personal preference?
