High Quality AR-15 Parts Made in the USA

USA made!

Our friend, Shelley Rae, over at Gun Nuts Media made a blog post this week about the different, high-quality parts on her AR-15. Reading about her build is a good place to start when you are ready to rev up your stock AR-15. Isn’t one of the reasons why we love the AR-15 rifle so much is because we can customize it? Shelley mentioned quite a few different companies’ accessories she has on her rifle. What’s better? All of today’s recommendations are made in the USA! Like Shelley, we recommend these four items today:

Daniel Defense XV Upper

If you want a truly customized AR-15, you will need to build it from the ground up. The upper and lower assemblies are the first two parts who will want to purchase. The Daniel Defense XV upper in 5.56mm NATO is a great price. It has a 16-inch Chrome Moly Vanadium Steel, cold-hammer forged barrel with a 1:7-inch twist; a good twist rate if you are wanting match-grade performance out of your rifle. The bolt carrier group is MIL-SPEC MP-tested and has a properly staked gas key. This upper assembly also includes an A1 birdcage flash hider, front and rear sights, and a M4 polymer handguard. Daniel Defense manufactures their parts right here in the USA and each part is inspected and hand-assembled.

The ball detent design is battle-proven; offering a surface to grab onto even in the worst conditions and the windage knob is easy to use.
