I know you made your choice but I would like to give my input on the AR Gold as I had a bad experience with it. I had a strange issue with mine that ultimately made me return it before getting any really meaningful round count on it.
The first time I shot it after the install the first round didn’t go off, but there was no primer strike AT ALL. I loaded the rifle from an open bolt, pulled the trigger and just got a click. I Pulled the bolt and ejected a perfectly good and unmarked round. After that - the rifle shot perfectly. It felt very good, but a rather weak reset imo. About a week later I went back to the range to get some more time behind the trigger and the same exact thing happened to me on the very first round loaded into the rifle, followed by flawless function.
I also had a lot of play in the trigger shoe. I’m not talking about the ‘roll’ that they build into the trigger - I mean a lot of side to side wobble of just the shoe. The trigger housing was solid in the receiver and no wobble so it wasn’t that. I emailed their customer support asking about it and nobody ever got back to me. This plus the weird first round of the day issues lead to just returning the trigger vs some kind of support. It’s disappointing bc everyone that shoots them loves the AR Gold, and I will admit it felt great but I wasn’t confident in the customer support or the reliability so away it went.
