Now, not everyone will know the primary differences between the AR platforms. Some may know all the differences and nuances of all. I'm here to tell the pros and cons on Why to Pick an AR-15.
The AR-15 is the modern sporting rifle with an incredible modular design. Every part on a Mil-Spec AR is interchangeable. Meaning there is an endless amount of variation to making one of them. Either changing out the caliber, to switching a handguard, it can all be done with this system.
Lets start out with the basics. The AR can have many different calibers shot through it other than its native design of 5.56 (Which is an incredible round and has many practical purposes). Someone who is looking to get more kinetic energy for hunting or maybe even more range for distance shooting can be done in an intermediate sized case. Some rounds currently on the market that will do this are 6.5 Grendel and.224 Valkyrie. Both outperforming a .308 past 400 meters. Maybe distance ins't what is desired and hard hitting suppressed is the purpose. Then a 300 Blackout would be perfect for that. 220 grains of hard hitting freedom.
Next is the complete modular design of this weapon system. Every single last part on a Mil-Spec AR-15 is interchangeable and can be easily customized. That should be enough said. But just some more information on it, EVERY LAST PART, all of them, can be customized, making this system the most versatile and expressive on the market.
