Saw this Field & Stream article and was glad to see my DPMS, my Rock River, and my S&W M&P made the cut.


Is yours here.

Whoever came up with the slideshow format needs to be kicked in the beanbag once for every stupid unnecessary click.

Yikes, they got a Bushmaster but no Larue? Shame...

Well, the list is 2 years old... but yeah, it's missing a lot of the biggest and best names in ARs.

April 27, 2011, 04:16 PM
I think that's a list of their Top 25 AR advertisers. Worthless information, absolutely worthless.

I think the title is a misnomer "25 BEST AR 15-style Rifles". The list looks more like "25 Most Interesting Variations of AR-15 Style Rifles'.

It covers M4, piston, retro, .308, target, DCM, psitol caliber, pistol, caliber variations, etc. Covers several manufacturers but leaves several quality ones out.

Serious omissions in makes, and calibers.

The most obvious is the highest one in popularity, and gaining more ground daily, the kitchen table Zombie Frankengun.

But, that maker doesn't buy advertising.

No LaRue, LMT or Noveske but they include the DPMS Testicle

NO Daniel Defense or Stag, or Spike's Tactical...?

I didn't see the Bushmaster Carbon 15, either...hmmm

And +1 on the bean punting for all the button clicking...

Ahhh the Frankengun, I know it well.


It's actually a C-15 M4 that has been frankenized.

That was then, this is now. No point in harping on out-of-date stuff.
