Description: The AR-15 is a lightweight, air-cooled, magazine-fed, autoloading, centerfire rifle.

The AR-15 is based on the 7.62mm AR-10, designed by Eugene Stoner of the Fairchild ArmaLite corporation. The AR-15 was developed as a lighter, 5.56mm version of the AR-10. The "AR" in AR-15 comes from the ArmaLite name, not "assault rifle".

ArmaLite sold its rights to the AR-10 and AR-15 to Colt in 1959. Colt marketed the AR-15 rifle to various military services around the world, including the U.S. Air Force, Army, and Marine Corps. The AR-15 was eventually adopted by the United States military under the designation M16. However, Colt continued to use the AR-15 trademark for its semi-automatic variants (AR-15, AR-15A2) marketed to civilian and law-enforcement customers. The original AR-15 was a very lightweight weapon, weighing less than 6 pounds with empty magazine, though later heavy-barrel versions of the civilian AR-15 can weigh upwards of 8.5 lbs.

Today the civilian-model AR-15 and its variations are manufactured by many companies and have captured the affection of sport shooters and police forces around the world due to their low cost, accuracy, and modularity.

The trademark "AR15" or "AR-15" is registered to Colt Industries, which maintains that the term should only be used to refer to their products. Other manufacturers make AR-15 clones marketed under separate designations, although colloquially, these are sometimes also referred to by the term "AR-15".

Some revolutionary or otherwise notable features of the AR-15:

Aircraft grade aluminum receiver Modular design allows for a variety of accessories and makes repair easier Small caliber, accurate, high velocity round Synthetic stock and grips do not warp or splinter Front sight adjustable for elevation Rear sight adjustable for windage and range
