I am thinking about getting a ar-15 from the Fulton Armory, are they any good?

From what I've heard they are great, but some feel they are overpriced. This is just hearsay and a friendly bump for someone who knows what he's talking about to chime in...

I see them at the MD gun shows. The rifles look very nice. Only bought M1, and M1A parts from them and they have been great. But a little on the high side. But then again you get what you pay for.

You will get what you pay for. I have done quite a bit of business with Fulton, mostly parts. But I do have one of their AR-15's. Excellent service and a fine rifle put together by someone who knows what he's doing.

They can be a little 'spensive, but I like being treated like a valued customer too.

I wrote their FAQ on AR cleaning about ten years ago. Wonder if they still are using it? <goes to check>

ETA> Yup.

They are nice, tight, and well finshed. You could have ADCO or RBprecision build you the same set-up for alot less. Don't get me wrong, the rifles are nice, just kind of pricy for what you get. Unless you're getting a bone stock A2, most of the "custom" parts are Yankee Hill. The stocks do not use a "mil-spec" buffer tube, if that matters to you.

He's looking at getting the A1. Anybody have any experience with those? Plus he said they're $ 800. That doesn't seem all that expensive to me. Who's making those parts for them, especially the lowers.?

I stand corrected, it's $ 900 bucks. Seems pretty cool.

A "Hornet" (A1-type retro variant) in the stable is at 10k+/- rounds, and has been an oustanding performer. Reliability and function 100%. The trigger and action were the smoothest of any NIB rifle I've ever received. Fit and finish, the least important consideration, were also excellent and only the usual predictable wear has developed since. A bargain for the $750+/- I paid for it, and still a bargain if more now.

Big bump. At the PG County gunshow today Fulton Armory had what looked like M4 clones (but with 16" HBAR bbl) for $779. I think if I shopped aorund I could get a Bushmaster M4 cline with a 16" HBAR bbl for around $750. The Fulton Armory model looks good and I am seriously thinking about getting one.

Laufenberg, the original poster (my brother in law), ordered the Legacy from fulton. I can't wait to see that thing. I'll take some pics to post.

He got it. We just gotta post pics. It's very very very nice. Those A1's are sweet. Light weight, 20" velocity, cool looks, and shoots real good. He hasn't done any real anal accuracy tests, but it's been fun zeroing it.

I was at the gun show this past weekend and I ordered one from Fulton Armory. I found there prices to be the same or less then others that I have priced. I was seriously considering getting a Les Baer. I should have the gun next week. I ordered the jeweled trigger, 20" stainless barrel, free floated hand gaurd, and collapsable stock. I will let you know how it shoots when I get it.

I was at the gunshow too and I am seriously tempted. They do not say who makes their receiver, just that it is military contractor. My guess is FN makes the receiver.

Cerro Forge makes their uppers...at least on the one I purchased. Safe to assume they do the lowers also?

I've always been pleased with any parts I get from them.
