AR-15- Short brief- Armalite build AR-15 in 1950


Recommended Posts

In recent years, the usage of AR-15 has been on the rise, and nothing is stopping it at all. In general, AR means “Armalite Rifle.” It is not an Assault Rifle, as you think. Yes, this is a famous misunderstanding. Initially, the rifle was made by Armalite. But as Financial troubles started to emerge, the company was forced to sell their rights to Colt. Now Colt has been making these semi-automatic rifles in vast numbers. The Armalite made the AR-15 as a military rifle back in the 1950s. But it never found the success it deserved. When Colt bought the design, the gun went on to become a popular figure. But there was a problem. The AR-15 was semi-automatic, and it failed to match the standards of other automatic rifles. After some modifications in the preliminary design, Colt came up with the M-4. Yet, the AR-15 found it’s way to Civilian hands

Just shared my basic Knowledge on AR-15. Kindly add your Info that is missed.......

You're missing the history of how the AR-10 became the AR-15.  Stoner didn't want to design the AR-15, but was requested to design by the military and passed off to more lower level designers at the time. (If I remember correctly)

I also vaguely remember how a demonstration was done in Asia.. and they happen to take the AR-15 with them for fun. It ended up being very popular in the demonstration. I think close to that point they retooled the manufacturing facility for AR15 vs AR10.  It's been a while since I heard the history about it..
