Guys, i am sick. I got the black rifle disease. All I can think of is an AR-15. Problem is: I know near to nothing about 'em(except they look so darn good). I shot one two weeks ago at CHL class. Long story short I want one. I have been reading forums for the past week(ar-15.com, but can't be a member Ihave only hotmail account). I found a couple of reasonable priced rifles but can not log on to send message. I decided to go with ANVIL ARMS, good price, lifetime warranty custom built for $800. I would love to hear if any feedbacks you have about this company( pictures, reviews). I will purchase a rifle this week, just don't want to do something dumb. Thank you all in advance.

I've never heard of them either.

If you are looking for a whole pre-built rifle that has a lifetime warranty, you may want to take a look at Stag Arms. I have found mine to be a high quality rifle at a good price. I purchased mine NIB via GunsAmerica.com for well below retail.

They are here in Central Florida, I've seen them at the gun show a few times. mudfoot here on this board recommended them to me as a very knowledgeable and respectable company. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them.

Take a look at Del-ton.com. I bought my complete upper from there and have been highly pleased with the product. I bought a Stag lower and DPSM innards. I put it together in about 30 min.

I had the same problem you did. I shot one and then had the disease till I got one. Good luck. If you have any questions feel free to PM me.

Is it price or the life time guarantee that you're looking for?
If you want a relatively "stock" rifle with life time guarantee, RRA/DPMS/Bushmaster/Stag are all excellent choices.
If you want it more customized and get a lot more "bling" for the rifle, I highly recommend Del-Ton from a price to performance standpoint (just buy the lower separately from the upper).

IMHO, now that ARs are ubiquitous, it is just as easy to find a local gunsmith to work on an AR rather than to ship it back to the company etc... and parts are cheap as well.

YMMV, cheers,

Looks like going seperate upper and lower parts give you more options ans as cheap at the same time. Thank you for the great info AJCRASH.

I've never heard of them, but that doesn't mean diddly. Just make sure they are using MilSpec with their parts if they machine them on-site, which really doesn't happen to much these days.

Not trying to threadjack or anything, but I'm very interested in getting an ar, but have had trouble finding just basic information on them like "what's an upper, and lower", the usual parts that people modify etc. DOes anyone know where I can find a beginners FAQ on Ar type rifles? Thanks!

Ohh boy, I have been reading for two weeks already. AR-15 is a good website but little too technical for us new guys. my problem is I can't stop looking at the pictures and read all about them. Especially the dark earth collored rifles.

Palmguy is correct!

Jon Kruger at Anvil Arms is one of the most helpful and knowledgeable people in the business. They are great people there, and you can't go wrong with anything from them.

I have been using Anvil Arms for some time now, and will continue to give them my business. They are straight up, no BS. Prices are extremely fair, and their Customer Service (i.e. stupid questions and fixing parts I screwed up) get answered timely.

Welcome to the forum, gunlock. This article.....

http://www.ammo-oracle.com/body.htm

....is widely regarded as one of the definitive works about .223 and 5.56mm ammunition, the caliber utilized by a traditional M16/AR-style rifle.

As for info about the rifles themselves, try here....

http://www.answers.com/topic/ar-15

It gives a decent overview of the rifles and their history. As for uppers and lowers--it's exactly what it sounds like. The M16/AR is designed to be separated into two sections. The upper is the upper part of the rifle, comprised of the barrel, bolt, bolt carrier, ejection port, carry handle and sights, etc. The lower is the lower part, and has the pistol grip, trigger assembly, accepts the magazine, and buttstock. The lower is the part that is technically classed as a firearm and is subject to gun law restrictions, while the upper is not.

Digest all this, and try googling any specific questions. Or post here--there's a ton of knowledge about Homeland Defense Rifles in this forum. :cool:

See them all the time at the local gunshows, have purchased numerous AR parts from them and a spector sling...they put everything on right at the show and they are good people and very knowledgable on the AR front, I have not bought a gun from them but I would not hesitate to do so. Especially since they are loacted in my hometown.

Many soldiers in Iraq, particually FLNG often order items from them and they ship stuff to Iraq a lot.

They have awesome samples at all of the gunshows of many different ar types.

FWIW I wear one of their advertising hats when we go out on warrant sweeps (its all black with a tan US Flag on it...says Anvil on the back
