Much to Diane Feinstein’s chagrin, the AR-15 is America’s favorite rifle. And for good reason. It’s the adult Barbie of guns, letting you easily add, swap out and otherwise dress up your AR to fit your fancy and your individual needs.
The AR’s modularity lets you add anything from flip up iron sights to lights and lasers to night vision and even a chainsaw bayonet if you so desire. The bottom line: keeping it simple is generally best, but the AR lets you be you. At least as long as they’re still legal.
