Latest Gunquester update: WARFYTR Review

Searchable, sortable AR-15/308 list of manufacturers/brands

The search box is very basic (narrows by words only, not column). There is no .223 or 7.62x51 listed, only 5.56 and 308. I had to simplify the keywords so that brands were not left out. While typing in search terns, you may notice some of the big brands disappear when you search for a specific term, if you want to see them you can use the term "everything".  

Over 200 active brands selected from over 300 considered brands.  Show all
**Just looking for lowers? I have list of all lowers page and the same for bolt carrier groups**

  • 16", 14.5" etc

    The length of the barrel in inches, rounded to the nearest half inch. So if a maker lists 16.15", It becomes listed at 16". The idea is to narrow the options down, rather that dial you in completely. Some mfg list 16" when it is 16.25" etc anyway.

  • 30% 80% 95% Lower

      Tactical Machining 80% lower,   note the trigger well is not milled out Some people sell lowers that are not quite complete. It means they are not selling you a "firearm" that they would be if the lower was finished. You can then drill some holes (95%), finish milling/drilling out the trigger area...

  • 4140-4150-416 Alloy

    SAE/AISI Steel grades/codes. They all have different properties, but generally duty barrels are 4150, cheap barrels 4140 and match barrels 416. But not always

  • 6061

    An SAE grade of aluminum alloy. The standard is 7075 T6 (heat treated aluminum of higher grade and cost than 6061). A few companies save money by using 6061 in receivers and I have specified them. They are still solid receivers and 6061 is almost exclusively used in rails, but 7075 is a better...

  • AMBI

    Ambidextrous. I have tried to find parts made with a left handed shooter in mind and list them under the generic term "Ambi". 

  • Free Float

    When a rail or hand guard does not touch the barrel past where it joins the receiver. Most rails are free float, some are drop in and attach near the front sight post. 

  • FSB

    Front Sight Block. The combination front sight and gas block common on many AR-15's. 

  • Keywords-Tags

    Just click the keyword below for a quick description of the word and how it is categorized. Even if you know what the word means, it might help to read how I have used it specifically for search optimization. I will add to this list soon.

  • Less stock

    A lower with the lower parts kit (LPK) installed but no stock

  • LPK

    Lower Parts Kit. As a standard, they contain all the small parts needed for the lower, but not the stock or buffer tube and associated parts. 

  • NiB

    (NiB-X). Nickel Boron. It is an alloy coating that is hard, naturally smoother than most alloys and very corrosion resistant. It can be goldish, or 1 of a couple silver hues

  • OSPA

    Other stock/small/standard parts and accessories. Anything from buffer tubes/receiver extensions to retaining pins, cam nuts, grips, charging handles etc. 

  • Proprietary

    Means "unique and NOT compatible with stock parts". Example: Knights and LWRCI both improved the stock bolt, but it does not fit in a regular barrel, if you buy it, then you need to buy their barrel also. Gas piston systems are generally proprietary also. 

  • Unique

    In this case it means "unique, interesting and compatible with other stock parts"
