Yes while most internal parts will fit they are not exactly identical and the rifle will function best if you either leave it alone or buy rem match parts

Why a Rem-15?

Actually there's a lot of truth in that... Remington has a more sporting connotation than many other AR brands.

Well I didnt want to bring up the BM connection. I really try to stay away from that on this forum.

Being a fan of Remington is cool, I love me some 700 action, but don't let it pull you under in the AR world.

Yeah it bothers me that Remington adds a premium to their AR when it's really a BM or maybe even DPMS. I will say they look good in camo. I do love my Remingtons though, an old Wingmaster 870 with 3 barrels I got back in 1975 and an 1100.

Wouldn't mind one of their new 1911s either, good price and it sounds like a good basic 45.

I really like my 1100 as well and the Wingmaster is the best looking firearm I own.
