About The AR-15

There are few firearms are as reliable and versatile as the AR-15. Since its introduction nearly 60 years ago, the rifle has evolved into a fully customizable platform. From custom grips and sights, to triggers and AR-15 rails, practically every component can be swapped out to create the perfect gun for each shooter's needs.

Reliability You Can Depend On

The aircraft-grade aluminum receiver is corrosion-resistant, machinable and lightweight. This makes it ideal for hunters looking for a lightweight weapon that won't malfunction when that 10-point buck walks into the sights.

The AR-15 can handle tens of thousands of rounds before any issues will start to develop. It is not uncommon to hear of rifles with 200,000 rounds or more downrange continuing to function well.

As with all rifles, maintenance is key to reliability. In that regard, the AR-15 is easy to clean and maintain. When problems start to develop, they are easily discovered during a routine cleaning. Because the entire system is modular, the part that is starting to wear out can be replaced and the gun can be back in operation in no time.      

Customization is Easy

The AR-15 was designed to be modified from the start. Shooters can trim weight by upgrading to lightweight AR-15 stocks. Grips can be swapped out for different weather conditions and shooting styles. Single- or two-stage triggers can be installed to create the perfect pull. And the rails... oh, the number of accessories you can add to the AR-15 rails includes everything from flashlights to lasers. There is no question that the list of AR upper parts and AR lower parts upgrades is long and distinguished.  

An Ideal Weapon for Every Shooter

Spotting an AR-556 or an AR-15 in Kentucky isn't hard to do. They are among the most popular firearms for hunting and target shooting. Each can be purchased for less than $1,000 and most shooters start with a basic model and upgrade and customize the weapon as they break it in and get comfortable with it.
