Has anyone heard of a Ar15 being made by Frankford Arsenal? I just bought one from a friend and he knew little about it. I have searched the web and cant find a thing on it. Also, does anyone know what one is worth? Its in very good condition. I guess i want to be sure i didnt get bent over. HAHA. Thanks a lot!

They were a gunshop in Philadelphia, PA specializing in C3. In the mid-70's they moved operations to Florida. I believe that the receivers are forged lowers made by Olympic Arms.

New receivers are Mega Machine made.

From _DR's lowers thread



Quote from AR15.com Information:


Frankford Arsenal
All are pre-ban. As rumor has it, Olympic Arms produced the lowers for Frankford Arsenal Call Olympic Arms and then Frankford assembled the weapon. A2 configuration lower. Frankford Arsenal went out of business in 1987. (Info from RudolphoS@aol.com)
