Santa was good to me this year, and brought me an armalite ar15. I have taken her to the range 3 times, and put around 500 rounds through her so far of Winchester whitebox. SO far its a TON of fun, and runs like a top. So how over the last several months, I hardly ever see anything on here about armalite?? whats the general opiion of them?? is there anything I need to watch out for with these rifles that is specific to armalite?

Armalite is definitely one of the top manufacturers, and people rate them up there with Colt and Bushmaster. They always work well, and tend to have really nice finish too (often nicer than Colt or Bushmaster). Of course there are so many more players now that make really good ARs, but if you go back a few years, the rule of thumb for buying quality ARs was "ABC" - Armalite, Bushmaster & Colt.

I believe Armalite also has a lifetime warranty, so they stand behind their product.

Yeah, I was kinda wondering that too. Armalites seem to be good rifles, but it doesn't seem like they get any attention here. Kinda funny though as I'm pretty sure the ar in AR-15 stands for ARmalite!

Yep, Armalite put the AR in AR-15, but that was the original company.

I'll shoot some photo's tonight. I already succumbed to the urge to dress it up, and I put a cheap-o rail-scope on it. It is a neat scopr and for $45 you can't go wrong. Looks bad-ass too.
herI think I really need to get a rifle bag for the ar.

Yes - but keep in mind that the orginal company that developed the AR-15 is NOT the same as the current company building them. (Kind of like the company called Springfield Armory has nothing to do with the Actual Springfield armory of the past).

The current company was originally called Eagle Arms, and they bought the rights to use the Armalite name, and started making kick-ass AR-15's and other products. But they are not derived from the original Armalite company in any way.

On another note, I was walking out to the car with it last weekend to go to the range, and my nieghbor across the street was out and saw me come out of the house with it. The poor woman nearly fainted when she saw it. Her eyes were as big as saucers and she was forzen with fear. I spent the rest of the weekend waiting for the poilice to come knocking, but they never did. Apparently either she didn't call em, or cooler heads prevailed at the police station.


You shoulda waved all happy, shouted, 'got a new rifle, wanna see' and jogged over to her so she could see it close up! Yeah, get a bag for it, helps to be PC.
