There is a lot of ass hattery there lately. Basically it's just "What kind of cool handguards should I get?, does anyone have a ton of pictures?" when a look through the stickies would provide plenty of useful material.

Not quoted.. but this mfg and this one and this one and this one and so on.. is all made by the same company.

The correct information is here if you look, but I guess people forgot how.

Hmmm, did a quick scan, whats the issue? I don't regular the tech forums, but usually get the question I need answered right away.

Can link to some of the "misinformation"? Examples please.

Example A:

pretty much all AR rifles are "parts guns." thats just the way it is.

i think theres maybe 3 or 4 companies total that make the parts (upper/lower recievers) for about 20 different companies. if you feel like taking the time, go to a gun store with a large supply of AR rifles and start looking on the port side of the upper, just under the rail/carry handle. bushmaster, dpms, olympic, colt, rra, doubestar, cmt, cmmg, and a few others usually have a keyhole emblem. all those different companies' uppers are mad at the same place.

its not a bad thing. . . part interchangability is great, and it keeps everyone mostly on an even playing field.


STFU.
Link Posted: 7/22/2008 3:42:32 PM EST
Well, the assembling of the rifle is important. Which is where some companies excel and others... Not so much.

It's aluminum.

So the OP can't tell the difference between plastic and aluminum. Even though it's a know fact (and something Bushmaster acknowledges) that they use Plastic trigger guards. I have several bushies and I have other lowers with aluminum trigger guards the differences are obviouse.

From Bushmaster (Jarrod) 5/9/2001 :

The trigger guard assy is now plastic because; the aluminum if hit or dropped would break & cut your finger. The plastic would flex & possibly break, but would not cut the finger. The plastic trigger guard also has the built in plunger to make it easier to change. Either way the plastic trigger guard is Mil Spec & that's how we make em'.

No, it's because you have been around less than a year and you ask what happened. There has been no drastic change in the tech forums in the last 6 months. So unless you have a more examples STFU.

Claiming that the tech forums are a tard fest in GD of all places doesn't exactly help your case either.

I've been shooting AR-15's for over 3 decades and, if some kid who's been on the planet half that amount of time (And who only owns an airsoft model of an M-16) wants to join this site and chime-in with HIS/HER two cents? Good for them!

If you know what they're saying is crap(?) Buy the kiddo a vowel and help them out (In a nice way).

Shit, the Federal gubmint PAYS me to rebuild these freaking things and I still learn something new daily from folks here.

BTW, come the revolution...I'm gettin' ME one O them AK-47's 'cause EVERYONE knows that the M-16 series is junk and and frankly....I WANT more thrust per squeeze (Or whatever that stupid shit said! lol).

Wow talk about you don't know what you dont know.

Yes there are only a few forging companies. But WHICH dies are used (either company owned or forger owned). Just because several use the same forging firm doesn't mean you used the same dies.

Plus many companies do their own machining of the forgings.

Then you get to the small parts. I'm betting you don't realize there are grades of small parts, just as there are different grades of bolts. Not to mention things like proof testing, and magnetic particle inspection of important parts.

These difference are often seen at training classes where the round count can run up to 1500 rounds in a 3 day course.


My point is that I do know that there are only a few forges that make AR uppers and lowers. I also know that there are a hand full of machine shops that machine most uppers and lowers for all companies, but what that post said of who is all made by the same place is very inaccurate.

If any big manufacturer says they make something "in house" they are lying. They al get parts from numerous machine shops that most people have never heard of.

Truth here, if no one asked "stupid" questions, [it might be stupid to YOU but not to the poster who might be new at the AR game] then typical questions would not be answered either. Soon, newer posters wouldn't bother to post at all in the tech forums and would go elsewhere for answers AND camaraderie, it not always just about the technical question in the end, the back and forth between firearm owners is what this site is about.

I would imagine every question under the sun has been asked here about ARs at one time or another, I would bet that you would not HAVE to ask ANY questions if you just wanted to look for an answer to a question.

We were ALL new to ARs at one time or another, we should welcome EVERY new owner who is interested in firearms. Who knows, someday that new owner might answer a question you have on something they are familiar with.
