The basic design has not changed in over 40 years, and you can really make this weapon your own, from shooting different rifle cartridges, and the use of many different attachments you can use for this rifle. The AR-15 is the rifle of choice for those who want a wide verity when it comes to shooting a military-styled rifle.

The AR-15 is designed as a lighter version of the AR-10, the AR-15 was built to meet the needs of soldiers after WWII. While working for the Armalite Corporation, Eugene Stoner not only created the AR 15, but the .223 Remington cartridge for which it is chambered. The .223 Rem. comes from the development of the .222 Rem. cartridge. The .223 Remington was favored because it is lightweight, yet accurate and powerful enough to penetrate a helmet per U.S. specifications.Although many calibers are now available of the AR 15, the .223 Remington is the “standard” round.

The rights to the AR 15 were bought out by Colt Industries, who is now the owner of the “AR 15” name. Technically, the term AR 15 should only be used to refer to Colt products, but many companies produce rifles of similar designs, which are also referred to as AR 15 rifles in everyday speech.

i don't think that would work. my ar's have fairly flimsy chargers that would easily bend if you pushed too hard. also, they are not locked to the carrier in the forward direction.

You don't have to slam it to pop the bolt in. My AR doesn't have a forward assist but the bolt have a spot for your finger to give it that last little nudge.
