‘The Harley Of Rifles’
There’s no more beloved gun in the country than the AR. Dubbed “America’s Rifle” by the NRA, it’s inexpensive, easy to use, deadly accurate and, perhaps most importantly, customizable.
It's likened to a Harley Davidson – the first thing people do when they get one is start adding and swapping accessories to make it their own. Each piece of an AR-15 — the magazine, the upper, the lower, the receiver, the stock — can be swapped out or given a new paint job. We get requests for homages to dead friends, dead pets, even one design that incorporated knitting needles.
Somebody always ups the ante.
AR owners seem eager to keep pushing the boundaries of wild designs.
