    What is a reasonable price for an AR-15?

    AR-15 rifles generally start at about $500. High-end rifles can go for several thousand, especially if you include cost of accessories. I would say the average price for a run of the mill AR is about $600-700 as of 2016. Buying one that’s mil-spec will probably cost $1,200 or more.

    What is comparable to a AR-15?

    The Springfield M1A is a modern tactical M14. It is an extremely high quality weapon, and is a great AR-15 alternative. It shoots 7.62×51 NATO, so it is a larger cartridge than the AR-15. This weapon has been around for a long time, and the modernization is a welcome touch.

    What should I look for when buying an AR-15?

    Let’s look at, in my opinion, the most important specifications a manufacturer can adhere to:

    • High Pressure Tested bolt and barrel.
    • Magnetic Particle Inspection of bolt and barrel.
    • Shot-peened bolt.
    • Gas key properly staked.
    • Mil-Spec 11595E Barrel Steel (or 4150 steel)
    • Chrome lined barrel.
    • M4 feed ramps (the modern standard)

    Why are AR-15 so expensive?

    The answer really is supply and demand,or in this case the answer is simply demand. There’s no shortage of rifles,but we continue to pay top dollar because they’re selling what we want. This isn’t the forum for an Economics 101 discussion,but I don’t blame the AR manufacturers one bit.

    What is the button on the back of AR-15?

    forward assist
    The forward assist on a firearm is a button found commonly on AR-15 rifle derivatives, such as the M16 rifle, and is usually located near the bolt closure. When hit, it pushes the bolt carrier forward, ensuring that the bolt is locked.

    How many bullets can an AR-15 fire in a minute?

    Since an automatic weapon like the AR-15 can fire 400 rounds per minute, this happens pretty quickly. Another drawback to an automatic firearm is its relative inaccuracy because the “kick” from firing a large pistol or high-powered rifle generally takes the gun barrel higher.

    Which is the best place to buy an AR 15?

    For those of you on a budget, there’s no shortage of relative newcomers to the AR-15 space producing them at more affordable prices. Our go-to recommendation for the best budget AR-15 manufacturer is Palmetto State Armory (PSA). At PSA, you can find complete AR-15s starting from under $500.

    Is there a budget version of the AR 15?

    The fine print behind us lets jump into the meat of the matter. While not as storied a history with the rifle as some, Smith & Wesson has proved more than adept at producing the platform since 2006. It’s M&P 15 Sport II is a bare-bones budget AR-15, but one that performs superbly.

    Which is the lightest full size AR 15?

    Lightest AR-15 – Faxon FX5500 Ultralight AR-15. This is the lightest complete “full-sized” AR-15 from a manufacturer that I’ve seen, at just 4.95 lbs. While it likely isn’t the absolute lightest available, Faxon hasn’t done anything too gimmicky to get it below the 5 lb mark.

    Is the AR 15 a fully automatic rifle?

    The AR-15 is the civilian semi-auto version of the fully-automatic M4. To reiterate what was said earlier about semi-autos, one pull of the trigger equals one shot. Since Colt owns the rights to the AR-15 name most manufacturers use slight variations on the name such as ARX, A4 or, more cleverly, “PredatAR.” Now, to answer a pressing question:
