Two Reasons the AR-15 Will Continue to Be America’s Rifle!

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Why is it whenever a product or service in America grows, gets popular, or dominates a market, the government steps in and feels the need to disrupt the industry and control it?

SUV’s get amazingly popular and the regulations on gas mileage explode. Internet sales flourish, and the painful and untimely talk of a national sales tax pops up like a pimple on your nose. Firearm background checks and transactions increase, the pressure on the banks from the politicians grow and they make it harder for firearm retailers to process credit cards.

The popularity of gluten-free products goes viral, and the politicians demonize it and call people bigots, fascists … oh wait. That one has not happened… yet.

The anti-liberty/freedom narrative always seems to go this predictable route. Something doesn’t fit a political agenda just demonize it or someone, tax it, regulate it, make it harder for citizens to own or participate in. There…the “problem” goes away eventually as they nudge and build fences around the edges. Your liberty is now infringed or taken away as planned.

The AR-15 rifle has been the battered stepchild of politicians and anti-gun people for decades yet the popularity of this platform for men and women of all ages is growing like a well-fed baby.

This AR firearm platform is a Cinderella story happening right before our eyes. In our gun-love-story, Cinderella’s glass shoe is a nickel boron bolt carrier group. The Prince in the great looking carriage in our story is an FDE Kryptec Cerakoted rifle chambered in an exotic round with a custom suppressor. Why do I feel this Cinderella AR-15 story will continue to grow and prosper (unless something drastic happens, like a November Blue Wave?)

Two reasons: The AR-15 is the most versatile weapon on the planet, and it is easily customized and upgraded for any size, shape, age person.

So many Americans are passionate about AR-15 firearms, that the popularity is growing in spite of the bad press, lying politicians, and a corrupt media.

Versatility

The AR-15 platform is being used by so many people for so many purposes, it’s no wonder it’s so popular.

Personally, I love to predator hunt with my 5.56 NATO AR rifle with a fixed 3.5 Trijicon ACOG optic and an Aimpoint T-1 red dot offset. My favorite deer stand hunting rig is my 6.5 Grendel AR-15 with a Sightmark 3-18×44 FFP optic. Hog hunting with a 6.5 Grendel or 300 Blackout with Pulsar thermal or Pulsar NV optics are popular set ups, too. The latest 224 Valkyrie chambered AR-15 rifles are becoming very popular with prairie dog and small varmint hunters. The 458 SOCOM could be a short-range big game rifle with a nice quality 1-4×24 illuminated optic.

My 5.56 NATO rifle also doubles as a self-defense rifle. The .223 Wylde chambered upper makes a great competition set up.

People from all walks of life also build rifles just for the entertainment of building a rifle. You don’t have to be trained gunsmith to put together a great AR-15.

There’s also the comfort factor adding to the demand for this weapon system. This is a great firearm for the tentative-at-heart to use as the range for plinking, or general training. The options are endless.

So, when an ignorant politician or hyper-partisan talking-head tells you your AR-15 is only for killing, smile, laugh, and go ahead and yell at the TV. Shake it off because it only illustrates their ignorance or hidden agenda.

The AR-15 is an amazing platform. But that’s only half the story.

AR-15 Rifles are Upgradable & Customizable

The real beauty of the AR-15 platform is how easy it is for a person to upgrade their rifle or customize it to their needs, body type, artistic eye and specific use. For most rifle upgrades or customization, you don’t need to send your rifle off to a gunsmith. Because the platform is so modular, most of the parts are plug and play with very little manipulation needed.

Each upgrade can serve one or multiple purposes. Upgrades can be for many purposes such as:

  • Performance
  • Making the rifle more accurate
  • Improving your performance with the rifle
  • Comfort
  • Weight reduction
  • Body adaptation
  • Use
  • Aesthetics
  • Colors
  • Style

Let’s look at some of the most popular AR-15 upgrade and customization parts.

Performance Upgrades:

Starting with the lower receiver, here are a few easy upgrades.

Trigger

Upgrading a trigger can be quick and easy (with drop-in AR triggers) to a moderate upgrade. I personally upgrade my AR-15s with a Geissele SSA two-stage trigger for better and more accurate follow up shots. Learned this many years ago rabbit hunting with my good friend Dave. Using his upgraded rifle, I quickly noticed how my consistency on follow up shots improved dramatically.

Pistol Grip

Tyrant Designs MOD GRIP RED
Tyrant Designs MOD GRIP RED

Swapping out a pistol grip that fits your hand or improves your grip is an inexpensive upgrade. Some like Tyrant Designs MOD GRIP come in so many styles and colors, you can also enhance your look too.

Buttstock

A butt stock upgrade can be a performance part, helps with comfort, and aesthetics too. I feel it belongs in the performance category because it helps you with your sight picture and quickly obtaining the sight image through your optic for one. Some feel a fixed stock helps them with their accuracy. It’s also used as a reference point on your face for quick target acquisition. ( read our Best AR 15 Stock Kits review) I like a firm buttstock with no rattle, especially when I am predator hunting.

Ambidextrous Safety Selector

Battle Arms AR-15 Ambidextrous Safety Selector Full Auto Black
Battle Arms AR-15 Ambidextrous Safety Selector Full Auto Black

Some people swear by an ambi safety selector to improve their performance.

Enhanced Pins

Buying enhanced AR pins for the rifle take-down is a cheap upgrade. These pins are generally easier to grab and pop out if you need to quickly separate the upper from the lower.

Upper receiver upgrades include:

Charging Handle

Stag 15 Raptor-LT Ambidextrous Charging Handle
Stag 15 Raptor-LT Ambidextrous Charging Handle

Between my optic getting in the way, or my big fingers, a standard charging handle is one of the parts I upgrade first. My choice, an extended and/or ambidextrous charging handle. You can find these from next to nothing for the cheap overseas knock-off products, to a little over $100. The downside of a wider charging handle? When walking with your rifle, the extended handle can make noise hitting your body or clothes, or snag as you manipulate the rifle.

Aesthetically, there are some crazy color charging handles in the marketing if you are going for the NASCAR look on your AR-15.

Bolt Carrier Group (BCG)

Ballistic Advantage 5.56 Complete Bolt Carrier Group Nitride
Ballistic Advantage 5.56 Complete Bolt Carrier Group Nitride

There are several upgrade opportunities with the bolt carrier group. Most options are related to the finish material. The porous and affordable phosphate finish, the easier-to-clean nitride finish, to the shiny nickel boron finish. I personally get great performance and durability to my nitride BCGs.

Gas Block and Gas Tube

Ballistic Advantage 10.3” 300BLK Hanson barrel with a pinned BA Gas Block
Ballistic Advantage 10.3” 300BLK Hanson barrel with a pinned BA Gas Block

Another performance upgrade opportunity. The gas block system is seldom seen, but when there is a problem, often heard. Some gas blocks and tubes are made of cheaper materials and can hurt the bolt cycling. There are also some adjustable gas blocks for those shooters who want to build a race-car and fine-tune the performance of the rifle. For me, I just want a durable gas system the works and will work for a long time to come.

Barrel

Ballistic Advantage AR15 Barrels
Ballistic Advantage AR15 Barrels

I could write an entire article on barrels. Pick a barrel that suits your needs. Will you be doing long-range target shooting? Then a longer barrel with the correct twist-rate will be an important factor in your decision. Hunting feral hogs in Texas at 40 yards at night? Then a larger caliber like a 300 black out or the ever popular 6.5 Grendel might be the best barrel for you.

Optics

The Aimpoint PRO is an excellent general purpose optic for the AR.
The Aimpoint PRO is an excellent general purpose optic for the AR.

Optics is another opportunity for a lengthy article. Too much to talk about here. An easy upgrade to your optics-ready AR-15 is adding back up iron sights (BUIS) for your rifle. Magpul has some great light-weight polymer options. Be careful adding a BUIS to your rifle if the gas block has a picatinny rail attached. You will need to have a metal BUIS, not a polymer.

Please don’t ask how I know and why I mentioned polymer vs steel BUIS. Let’s just say it’s a school-of-hard-knocks experience and just leave it there.

Comfort Upgrades:

Comfort is important, not for the sake of feeling comfortable, but for performance as well. My wife and I have different predator rifle set ups mostly because of our body types, arm lengths, and overall strength.

Handguard

The handguard is available in the KeyMod and the new M-LOK hand guard systems
The handguard is available in the KeyMod and the new M-LOK hand guard systems

So many sizes, looks, and quality levels your head will spin. Length, weight, attachment design (quad, M-LOK, and Keymod) are things to consider. I like different handguard (or rail) options for different uses. My predator/self-defense rifle has a shorter quad rail for many attachments. My deer AR has less attachment opportunities but is a lighter rail. My wife uses a short polymer Magpul hand guard saving a lot of weight on her rifle.
Start with your needs and go from there. I’d suggest staying with one system through if you plan on adding rails and attachments down the road. M-LOK seems to have the momentum right now.

Accessories

There aren’t enough hours and pages to be able to write about all the accessories available to you. Again, I would start with which rail system you want, identify your needs (bipod, forward grip, lighting system, laser, etc.) and go from there.
Aesthetic Upgrades

Some consider the AR-15 the Barbie Doll for guys. Or an adult set of Legos. With tattoos becoming so popular, the AR is not immune to personalization like a tattoo.

There are specialists all over the globe who will be happy to customize your AR look.

Cerakote

A small company out of Southern Oregon created a thin coating process using a polymer-ceramic material that is extremely durable and can come in many colors and variations. Of course, the firearms business has embraced this process and you see it on Kydex holsters, to pistols, and of course, any and every part on the AR-15 platform. The cost is very reasonable and you can have a lot of fun picking out a new color or pattern for your rifle.

For me, I am using different color upper receivers and handguards for different caliber uppers. My 6.5 Grendel upper and magazines are in FDE. My .223/5.56 NATO units are in black. In theory, I won’t get my ammo and magazines mixed up when at the range on in the field hunting.

Make the AR-15 Your Rifle

As much as I love my Remington 700 Mountain Stainless 308 bolt action rifle, my favorite long gun is the AR-15. Why?

Because it is so versatile. I can affordably target shoot. I can hunt varmints and predators. With the right ammunition I can ethically hunt larger game like deer, hog, and for the right set up, elk hunt.

Let’s face it. It’s just plain-old fun to design, plan, build, and upgrade. The AR-15 is badass too!

The following is perhaps illustrative of a personal quirk, but the fact that today’s AR-15 type rifles are “sightless”, that is no proper Iron Sights from the rifle makers is off-putting. Yes,I believe that, as an extra cost item, a detachable carrying handle, rear sight combination is available, but this should come with the rifle, in my view, not be an extra. In case anyone is curious, I shot High Power Competition for many years, first with a Garand, also now and then with the M-14/M1-A, and later on with bolt action rifles, using Iron Sights out to 1000 yards.… Read more »

A personal observation that might catch the interest of some here. The seemingly strange and increasing popularity???of the AR-15 platform in the face of ever present political criticism might perhaps be derived from, all other aspects aside, the sweetness and desirability of “forbidden fruit”? Did the Prohibition Act reduce or increase the consumption of alcohol in this country??

John McNair:

1. That article was written more than a year ago.
2. Recent events regarding sanctions on Russia have proven just the opposite of what you and the article allege.
3. Through the entire Trump/Russia investigation the ONLY thing that’s been proven so far is that it was the DNC and Hillary’s campaign who colluded with the Russians.
4. The only news networks I watch are Fox and OAN.
5. I do admit to reading the Federalist, Rantingly and others.

John McNair: You don’t like the AR. WE ALL GET IT. But conflating facts and guns is just dishonest and I have no problem being the one to call you out on it. The AR of the Vietnam era, without the forward assist, is NOT the AR of today. It has undergone numerous design changes. It was originally designed for jungle warfare where distances were short and you wouldn’t be weighed down by carrying a ton of ammo. As with any institution the armed forces are slow to change or adapt. The bolt issues are solved with modern technology as… Read more »

America’s rifle. I’m going to risk pointing out that this title usually ends up belonging to whatever rifle the U.S. military is currently issuing (if it’s around long enough), just as soon as the same rifle (or a civilian legal version) enters the commercial market. Soldiers become quite attached to the weapons their lives depend on, if those weapons are any good, and they take that with them into the hunting fields and target ranges when they leave the military. At different times, the Springfield and then the M1 were “America’s rifle.” I’ll go out on a limb here and… Read more »

For some reason or other, the AR-15 type rifle seems to have brought on, or contributed mightily to the push for “sightless” rifles, and the various optics that can be attached to them, I wonder why? I fired National Match Course type competition, 200, 300, 500 or 600 yards with a Garand for many years, occasionally with the M-14/M1-A, 1000 yards too with the above mentioned, all of which had quite good Iron Sights, the rear sight being fully adjustable, that is to say for windage and elevation (distance). Later on, having switched to bolt action rifles, same course of… Read more »

Lol….Please provide the case cite that says that Jews are a race…In order for Jews to be a race as a separate people, there must exist particular genealogical elements that define them in a manner that are privy only to them. A court cannot change science and if some court actually has allowed Jews to be defined as a separate race then it would only be recognized by that particular court. It would be tantamount to a court ruling that the ocean is made of paper. Actually, two different universities in Israel tried to find a genetic difference between Jews… Read more »

I’ve actually been writing a book about how bad the AR-15 really is. Failed every test before McNamara purchased it. It was responsible for the deaths of several hundred soldiers in Vietnam. There have been several Senate hearings as to why its a really bad design. It’s original purpose was to replace the M1 Carbine not the M-14. After seeing the poor performance of the original .223 round there was a change and it was called the 5.56…still under performs. No other country wants to produce the M-4 but the AK-47 has been produced in more than 40 countries worldwide..… Read more »

I guess I’d better tell them there supposed to malfunction and not hit what I’m shooting at. The military is always looking for an up grade to any equipment including small arms. That’s how it went from the musket and bayonet to the M16. The military always fights the next war the way it fought the last war. Lessons and tactics have to be upgraded as the… Read more »

I’d like to see your source for that claim. Last I read in the military times in June the army was looking into a new rifle, but that statement isn’t confirmation. The Army has “looked into” aquiring a new rifle platform dozens of times in the last two decades. XM8, SCAR, ACR, FNFAL, SOCOM M14 remember when the Army was looking into replacing the M4/M16 systems with those?
