What are the best AR-15 rifles for the average shooter?

If you're in the market for an assault rifle then you owe it to yourself to check out the AR-15. In a nutshell, the AR-15 is a semi automatic version of the military's M-16 rifle that was introduced by Colt for civilian use a number of decades ago. The AR-15 is a very light weight, air cooled and gas operated weapon with a rotating lock bolt. This weapon uses a 5.56mm, which it receives from a magazine. The materials that this weapon is made of our second to none, because it is manufactured using a number of different types of alloys along with synthetic materials. The features of this particular weapon are too numerous to actually name here, however we would like to cover a number of the most notable features of this particular assault rifle.

Depending on the manufacturer this rifle can be made of some of the best materials you can find, such as the fact that it uses aircraft grade aluminum within the receiver, which is both light weight and very resistant to corrosion. This rifle is also made in a modular design, which allows you to add a number of different accessories in addition to making repairs much easier than with the traditional assault rifle. This assault rifle uses a small caliber, which is both accurate as well as fast, making it the perfect weapon for tactical police personnel. Some additional design features of this particular assault rifle is that it has a synthetic stock and grips, which will not splinter off nor will they warp and the front and rear sights are adjustable.

So far we have covered a number of the features of the AR-15, but we have not discussed the one thing that most people would like the answer to, which is which manufacturer makes the best AR-15 rifles. The original company that was given the rights to design a civilian version of the M-16 was Colt. As with many things in this world, the original is the best, and this is no exception. Out of the number of manufacturers of the AR-15, Colt is at the top of the list. We are not saying that if you are looking to buy an AR-15 that you must buy a Colt version, since there are several other manufacturers that are of equal quality in the same price range, and these other two companies are Knights Armament and Daniel Defense. We won't even bother wasting your time discussing the other manufacturers of this particular weapon; we prefer to focus on these three. When it comes to these three manufacturers you can really do no wrong by purchasing any one of them, however all three of them have slight, but distinct, differences. The only sure fire way to ensure that you get the best AR-15 rifles for your application is to test each one.

Savage 110BA Product Review

Whether you are into long-range hunting, competitive shooting or just enjoy target shooting on the weekends, then you would really enjoy the Savage 110 BA long-range tactical rifle. Even though Savage recommends this rifle for law-enforcement, citizens all over the country have been enjoying it. The general description of the Savage 110 BA law enforcement is that it is a bolt action long-range tactical rifle that you can use with a couple different types of ammunition, but in my opinion the best option being .338 LAPUA. The benefit for the user is that since it is part of the law-enforcement series it comes with Savages patented Accutrigger as well as Accustock. For a number of reasons that we will discuss in this article, it is been a wonderful weapon for both law enforcement and rifle enthusiasts alike.

Some general specifications on this particular rifle are that it is a bolt action, aluminum stock weapon that is available in a couple of finishes, either carbon steel or matte black. This rifle has a 29 1/2 inch barrel and only weighs 15.75 pounds. With an overall length of 50 1/2 inches this is a perfect rifle for toting around the woods or for storing in the trunk of your vehicle. This weapon comes with a scope rail as well as a detachable box magazine that will hold six rounds. One of the most notable features about this weapon is that it has the Accutrigger and Accustock. The Accustock is an incredible invention because it uses a fiberglass lining that is housed inside of the stock that wedges the action within the stock which forces it to stay still and making sure that the rifle will shoot perfectly straight. In addition the barrel is free floating so that the stock does not cause problems with the action. As for the trigger pull of the 110, it requires an extremely short pull, which is perfect for individuals that are trying to shoot with extreme precision. The only downfall that has been noted in tactical rifles that have light trigger pulls is that accidental discharges can pose a serious safety hazard. This is the reason that Savage has developed the Accutrigger, which will prevent any discharge by accident using an internal lever that actually has to be lifted prior to the firing pin going forward.

As we have said the Savage 110 BA law-enforcement series rifle is a spectacularly designed long-range rifle with a number of additional features not found in any other weapon. Savage labels this particular rifle as one that is used for law enforcement, however for a number of reasons, many that we have already named, it is a huge hit with rifle enthusiasts of all types. If you're into long-range hunting or competitive shooting, and you're in the market for a new rifle, then you certainly owe it to yourself to check out the Savage 110 BA. This is a very difficult rifle to get your hands on right now so if you see one in stock you should jump on it.
