    Hey guys, put together a list of manufacturer/builders of AR15s in alphabetic order. So it will include the best, worst, marginal, cheap, quality, expensive, best bang for the buck, no expense spared, makes and models (tags).

    I'm going to limit this list to manufacturers of complete rifles, self branded complete uppers, or at least a self branded stripped lowers. Will not include manufacturers or custom shops that only sell parts and accessories.

    If you know of any any that I missed, let me know!

    Doesn't Adam Arms make rifles for Huldra?

    Did you miss Armalite?

    Quentin Defense (QD) does make complete ARs.

    Armalites on.... list is in alphabetic order.

    QD and WOA added, didn't see an option for complete ARs on the website. I might have missed it.

    I'm not sure how the Huldra/Adams Arms relationship works. I know Huldra uses Adams Arms piston systems, and I believe that they are separate companies. Adams Arms didn't show a complete rifle on their website.

    Pretty sure Anvil is out of business. Lots of drama involved.

    Huldra was formed by a farm supply type store that's big in one or two states, can't recall the name or state(s). The owners son started Huldra and they sell the ARs out of their preexisting stores. I think he mentioned Adams Arms built their ARs. Maybe it was just the uppers.

    I don't remember all the details but the guy came on M4C w/ guns blazing stating Huldra was the next evolution in small arms.

    The guy turned out to be on the up n up but was put through the ringer first.

    I'll read up on it again.

    Is there a character limit making it necessary to make multiple posts?

    Core15

    Huldra - sold at Mills Fleet starting 2011. They contract Adam Arms to finish the major parts including piston parts and barrels. Sounds like Adams sends them kits and they assemble them.
