Default Favorite AR-15

I was wondering who do you guys think make the best AR's. I'm a fan of Rock River Arms.

tierone,

Although there are other good ARs out there! That would be a good Second for me for RRA! When you have a Rock River Elite CAR A-4 serial number at 5000 that has a total of 30,000 rounds through it with only re-barreling her one time, and the fact that as I can remember has had only two failures to feed since 2001 which I am sure was due to a defective magazine. And my
20" RRA Varmint Rifle shoots 1/4 MOA Groups. What else could a guy say! They are fine rifles!

The one I built from scratch. Delton stripped lower, spikes stripped upper and MANY MANY other things to make it the perfect AR, IMO of course. LOL!

I always build my own PCs so I'll use my saying about Dell Computers.

"They can build a million better than I can but I can build ONE better than they do."

Anyway, the point is, if you half way try, for about the same money or less you can build a better AR than you'll likely find on the shelf.


ETA:
But you can't go wrong with BCM, Colt or Daniel Defense.

A well crafted factory rifle you know is 100% spec and 100% capable. One you know with unwaivering confidence will take you to hell and back when called upon.

I don't want to have to cross my fingers and hope I get a good one. I want to know the minute I press that "submit order" button a great rifle will soon rest in my hands.

I look at my rifles like I look at my friends. I may not have many but the ones I do have will be there forever and have my back should something go wrong.

As many of you can attest, when you've been there the picture becomes a little more clear.

I like my Carbine. It is a Spikes lower, RRA NM trigger and internals, stag arms upper, leupold red dot and a magpul stock. I can run any ammo I have tossed in it, reloads, AE, LC, federal, wolf, silver crap, winchester white box, brown turd, PMC, and remington.
I like owning a rifle that will shoot anything I put in it.

I agree with canebrake.
My Colt LE AR/M4.
With the few mods I have on it, I could ask for anything more out of a AR.
