AR-15 Projects | BUILD AN AR 15 RIFLE
It goes without saying the sport of shooting guns is enjoyable and addictive. Shooting is also somewhat unique from other sports in that there is offshoot addictions that develop into secondary hobbies. This is particularly true with most AR-15 shooters. I always laugh to myself when I hear someone say “I just want to get a cheap AR-15 just to have one”, “I don’t need anything fancy” The fact is that first trip to buy an AR-15 at a local gun shop the shooter is clearly on their way to a brand new addiction. The addiction of building AR-15’s.
The design of the AR-15 is modular. The AR-15 like it’s parent the AR-10 are designed to be manufactured at a lower cost than traditional military rifles. In addition the AR-15 design is incredibly easy to maintain and repair with simple hand tool, or the tip of a .223/5.56 bullet. Due to the the previously stated details the AR-15 is both easy to upgrade or even more importantly easy to build from the ground up. AR owners typically start with small changes to their rifle. Parts like the flash hider, stock and safety selector are the first to go. As a consequence these small simple parts changes empower the gun owner to want to do more.
As a result the shooter begins page by page studying the Brownells catalog, or more specifically the Brownells AR-15 Catalog. He or she concludes there is no further improvements for their first AR 15. There’s only one thing left to do and that is build one exactly the way they want it.
