Welcome to the page of the AR-15, the most popular rifle in America. It’s hard to find a better fit for home defense and range shooting purposes. The title of the most reliable 5.55x45mm firearm ever is not the only achievement the AR-15 rifle can boast. It also served as a prototype for the M16 rifle and M4 carbine that are in service with the US military to this day. What is it, if not the best argument in favor of these arms? With loads of aftermarket options like AR-15 accessories and parts, this rifle is rightfully enjoying its place at the forefront of the firearm ranks.

Many people believe that AR stands for “assault rifle”, which does have some reasoning behind it yet is nothing but a misconception. What does AR really stand for in AR-15? The name goes back to the gun’s original manufacturer, ArmaLite, and is basically an acronym for “ArmaLite Rifle.” Developed back in 1956, it was an answer to the U.S Continental Army Commander's request for a smaller .223 rifle that could single-handedly replace several other rifles that were in service at the time. ArmaLite took their earlier model AR-10, designed by Eugene Stoner, and scaled it down. The patent and trademark were sold to Colt in 1959, who introduced several improvements and began mass production of the rifle. It wasn’t until 1963 that the AR 15 rifle was adopted by the military under the name “M16.” The semi-automatic version hit the civilian market the following year to never leave it.

One of the best AR-15 features is its high modularity. It is hands down the most customizable weapon out there that enjoys the abundance of part options beginning from AR-15 handguards and upper receivers to triggers and grips. This versatility allows the AR-15 to be a long-range precision rifle or a close-quarters combat rifle by simply changing the upper, let alone the ability to module the gun according to your taste and comfort.
