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.

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.

But you can't go wrong with BCM, Colt or Daniel Defense.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.

My Colt LE 6940.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

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.
Be polite. Be professional. And have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
