What Is A Good AR-15 Rifle?

ar-15-most-popular-rifle-in-america

The AR-15 rifle is available in a wide range of configurations from a large number of manufacturers, and is America’s most popular rifle.

Here’s a question for those of you who own an AR-15 rifle and/or are in a position to input your opinion about “What is a good AR-15 rifle”?


 
AR-15 configurations range from short carbine-length models with features such as adjustable length stocks and optical sights, to heavy barrel models. Due to the AR-15 rifle’s modular design, one upper receiver can quickly and easily be substituted for another. There are many aftermarket upper receivers that incorporate barrels of different weights, lengths and calibers.

No doubt there are ten times as many opinions as there are manufacturers, variants, and accessories. And that’s okay. Let’s hear yours…

-Opinion regarding ‘good’ (or best?) manufacturer

-Opinion regarding variants (I know this depends on intended use)

-Opinion regarding accessories

 
UPDATE: The following AR-15 Owners Guide includes considerations when selecting your AR-15, a breakdown of the parts (from the barrel to stocks), a discussion of carbines and external piston systems, chamberings and cartridges, accessories, operation and maintenance, and more…
