Technical and Informational Resource for AR-15 and Variants
There are many companies manufacturing or assembling AR-15’s but very few have the knowledge and understanding of the platform like JP Rifles and particularly John Paul himself. The GMR-13 was a great 9mm AR, quite possibly the best. Now with the release of the GMR-15 they are taking the 9mm AR to a new level.
JP RIFLES 9mm CARBINE AR15 GMR-13 – Designed from the start with the needs of law enforcement in mind, the GMR-13™ accepts the same G17 pistol magazines as Glock 9mm pistols for carbine/sidearm compatibility and is also available in select-fire configurations. Built on the PSC-11™ upper receiver platform with its dual charging systems, the GMR-13™ readily accommodates those with training backgrounds on either the HK or AR-15 platform. Also available for military and law enforcement, the complete rifle package includes our own JP select-fire trigger setup for precision trigger control in both semi- and full-auto modes. As with all JP rifles, the GMR-13™ comes with parts and service readily available from a trusted US manufacturer.
The Knights Armament AR-15 2-Stage Match Trigger comes in as one of the most expensive aftermarket AR-15 triggers available. It’s cost exceeds more than arguably superior triggers like

I think this may be the cheapest I have ever seen a brand name AR-15 being offered for sale. The Anderson AM-15 retails for $599.99. Brownells has it on sale for $509.99. Then if the Brownells Coupon Code 3344 is used here the final price is $459.99
Vortex Optics RAZOR AMG UH-1 Holographic Sight. It appears that Vortex Optics now has Eotech in their sights with the announcement of the AMG UH-1 Holographic Sight.

Introducing the Vortex Optics RAZOR AMG UH-1 Holographic Sight. The RAZOR AMG UH-1 Holographic Sight affectionately known in-house as “Huey.” The UH-1 is a completely new force in weapon mounted holographic technology
Aimpoint manufactures a great family of micro red dot scopes. These micro dot scopes are the T1/H1 models. The Aimpoint red dot scopes are quite popular with AR shooters and for good reason. Aimpoint micro series sights are rugged, reliable and have exceptional battery life. Also in typical Aimpoint fashion these AR red dot scopes quite expensive. The cost unfortunately prevents many shooters from owning the Aimpoint’s. Not every shooter needs or can afford a battle worthy weapon sight. Fortunately some scope manufacturers and AR parts vendors recognized a niche. The result is an industry of inexpensive Asian Aimpoint knock-offs. Typically a person could purchase four Aimpoint H1/T1 knock-offs for the price of a single authentic Aimpoint.
All of the Aimpoint T1/H1 knockoffs are not created equal. One of the best brands is Primary Arms and their Micro Dot scope. The PA micro dot is compatible with the same mounting system as the T1/H1 Aimpoint.
