The AR-15 rifle is part of American history. It is a unique design created here in the U.S.A. The AR-15 could be compared to the American Long Rifles of the 1700’s and the lever action rifles of the 1800’s. Both of which were also unique American designs and the most advanced rifles of the day. The AR-15 is today's modern sporting rifle with its many variations from the original Colt Model 601 military rifle.
I first became interested in these rifles when I shot a Colt AR-15 A1 Sporter Model R6000 SP1. That was the first civilian version of the rifle to be sold. Those models were first released in January of 1964. AR-15 rifles are nothing new, they have been sold now for around sixty years. This may surprise some of you that are not familiar with the history of this rifle. If you are one of those that think the "AR" stands for "assault rifle", please do some reading and educate yourself about this rifle. Like most firearms, the AR-15 has a very interesting history. I first bought a new Colt AR-15 A2 Sporter II Model R6500 in the late 1980's. Not long after that I built my first AR-15. It was a carbine style rifle with a 16-inch barrel and collapsible stock. There were not many choices for parts and accessories back then but it turned out to be a good rifle.
Today there is a huge assortment of parts and accessories available for building an AR-15 rifle. Building a rifle is a good option when you cannot find the particular style of rifle that you have in mind. Buying a new rifle and then modifying it will usually cost more than building one. Watch this cool video to become familiar with all of the components that make up an AR-15 rifle. Assembling an AR-15 rifle from a bunch of parts is not a difficult task for someone with good mechanical skills. There are a few specialized tools that are necessary to make the assembly process much easier and also prevent damage to the components. The key to building a good rifle is to use the proper techniques and quality parts that are compatible with each other. I use the correct tools and procedures and know which components to use for the desired results. Certain rifle combinations may need to be "tuned" in order to function properly and reliably. Things like buffers, buffer springs, and gas ports will need to be matched. Firearms, reloading, and shooting are some of my favorite activities that I have been involved in for many years. I have watched and learned as the firearm industry evolved from hardly nothing to the huge industry it is today. I continue to learn as new components, tools, and procedures are constantly being developed. Firearms and everything associated with them is a wonderful hobby that I enjoy sharing with like-minded people.
It would be my pleasure to help you acquire your AR-15 dream rifle. Send me an email with any questions and describe what style of rifle that you have in mind. Use this website "BUILD FORM" to let me know your particular preferences for each component. If you would rather talk on the phone give me a call. It does not matter if you are new to firearms or have never been around firearms, I am happy to help answer any questions. I also build or refurbish other firearms in addition to the AR-15. They are all interesting to me.
