Imbel vs G1 vs L1A1 vs anything else

I've seen parts kits for each in Tapco and FAC, and receivers in FAC by Imbel and various US manufacturers.

I hear that Imbel is better, and I would guess that the fit and function would be better between an Imbel receiver and parts kit than between a G1 parts kit and US made receiver. The US compliance parts (stock set and fire control parts) all come together anyway, so a US made receiver isn't necessary.

Or should I consider a different set of parts and receiver?

And how would this compare to a pre-assembled L1A1 from Centerfire (presumably Century... anyone else make them for under $500?)

I bought a century R1A1 yesterday and had a chance to try it out today. 60 rounds with zero malfunctions using surplus spanish ammo. My rifle has an Imbel receiver by the way, inside the mag well is 2000 etched into the metal. The only problem I've had is that the rifle came with two mags a metric and an inch pattern, only the metric will fit.:assult:
