Colt AR 15 History & Specs

What ultimately became the AR 15 was originally developed by ArmaLite, however due to growing financial concerns the company sold the AR 15 design to Colt. While the uninitiated may assume that “AR" stands for “assault rifle" it is in fact a shortening of the original designation “ArmaLite Rifle." Colt ran with the design, eventually working with the US military to create the select-fire version, the M16. Soon after its adoption by the US armed forces Colt began selling the semi automatic rifle, the Colt AR 15 to civilians.

Today there are many manufacturers who make “AR 15-style" rifles and components however Colt still holds the rights to the term “AR 15." Developed to improve upon the AR 10, the AR 15 is extremely lightweight, even today when more modern models are made to withstand heavy and intense use. Using relatively small caliber bullets, this rifle stays lightweight even when loaded and can fire high-velocity rounds with great accuracy. The Colt AR 15's modular design makes it extremely versatile for different types of combat and it can easily be adapted to fire different caliber rounds.
