    M4 assault rifle?.....

    What your really asking -- Who makes the best AR15 civilian sporting rifle that has the features you want....

    If you start calling your semi auto rifle an "assault rifle" it will set of the goof ball alarm at the gun club or gun shops... Only morons use that term.....

    Here is what an assault rifle is......

    Here is what an M4 carbine is..... Yes its considered an assault rifle.....

    Look here at this AR15.....

    Notice how they look the same? --- But they are not.... The AR15 which you can buy at a sporting goods store is not an assault rifle....

    That's because its semi-automatic......

    What you want is a Rock River Arms AR15 rifle..... take a look.....

    LOOK SMART --- Take "Assault Rifle" out of your vocabulary.....

    Please don't use the term assault rifle with an AR15 unless you filed for the Tax Stamp paper work and bought a registered full auto trigger pack for it.

    Anyhow, there is a 100 different AR15 brands but only a handful of companies manufacturing parts for the AR15 rifle. Example would be the Stag and Rock River Arms...these are both made by the same company. So my best advice is to stick with a company known for quality and service.




    Rock River Arms


    Larue Tactical



    Here is a video that may also help if you decide to build an AR15.

    What you want is properly called an M4 Carbine. An assault rifle is a select fire weapon capable of semi-auto and either full auto or burst fire.

    As for the best? There are at least a dozen manufacturers who build decent rifles.

    Just a few off the top of my head.






    Prices may vary several hundred dollars.

    Smith and Wesson DPMS Bushmaster, Rock River...even Olympic all sell M-4orgery versions of the M4varient of the M16 service rifle.

    Best? Just about every major maker and most of the minor ones sell rifles built to military spec or with mil spec parts they purchase from vendor-contractors.

    Finding one that will fire 5.56 x 45 -223 remington is easy's the US service round.

    Add all the stuff you want to... just keep some iron sights on your rifle... life sucks when your batteries go dead

    This is a firearm. It works by burning powder in a confined space, with the pressure of the gases driving the bullet down the barrel. Since something moves in one direction, something else moves in the opposite direction. The bullet goes one way, the gun and everything attached to it including the shooter moves in the other direction. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. In this case a 55 grain bullet exits the muzzle at 2500 feet per second. If the gun weighs 5 pounds, it weight in grains is 7000*5 or 35000 grains. The gun moves backwards at a rate of 2500/35000 feet per second which equals 0.07 feet per second. There is not a great deal of recoil, but if you are firing the gun full auto it will result in that 0.07 FPS impulse times the number of cartridges per second. At 600 rounds per minute, there are 10 round per second for a sustained effective thrust of 0.7 FPS.

    Firstly, it is not an assault rifle. It is a carbine.

    Secondly, it is illegal to get unless it is a pre-1986 job, and good luck finding one. If you do find one, expect to pay around $25,000 USD.

    Thirdly, how old are you?
