The Everything AR Info Thread


New member
I have gone back thru time to bring the answers to the most common asked questions about the AR platform. This has taken hours to do, and without a doubt some wont see it. Even in the event of it being a sticky which I hope it happens! Some will read this thread and still post a question about AR scope mounts because for some reason they may think they will get a different answer than the hundreds before them, human nature I guess. I have broke it out to include lots of items, If you have a thread in mind that deserves to be included, or one you posted in the past, please PM me with a link to the thread, I will insert it into this first post. It is my intention to put as much AR info into this post as possible, but keep it organized at the same time. By the way 500 pages back in the F&R section is only about a year and a half.

If you see your question...... kind of asked here, READ the links, chances are your question might get answered. Plus reading about the firearms you own just expands your knowledge on the firearm itself, how bad is that.

These links were lost in the last software upgrade. Some of them have been replaced on page 3 of this thread.

Great idea, I've thought of same myself but never got off my butt to do it. Your post is also much better organized than the one in my head.

Heck yes, it's a sticky!!

Not sure that this is what you have in mind but its a good read and addresses .223 reloading for AR's and is quite informative.

No thats a great idea!! Some of this stuff I just wont be able to think of all by my self. I put it up there, I also linked their 20 cal page under the 204 stuff.
