Most shooters and gun enthusiasts will agree that the AR-15 is one of the most beloved and popular rifle platforms existing on the market. Aside from the fact that it’s truly American, designed and developed back in the late 50s by a firearms manufacturer named Armalite, users appreciate it for the countless opportunities for customization as well as maneuverability and agility requested back in the day by the military to replace the AR-10, the AR-15’s heavier-caliber predecessor. After the Vietnam War, the AR-15 successfully entered the civilian market and quickly became popular with retired soldiers transitioning to civilian life, plinkers, sporters, and people needing a weapon for home defense. However, a surge in the popularity of semi-automatic firearms and a succession of shootings overtaking civilian America in the late 80s and early 90s led to the Federal Assault Weapons Ban in 1994 prohibiting the manufacture of some semi-auto rifles, including the AR-15. The Ban automatically ended ten years later, in 2004 to be precise, and it was perfect timing to start getting involved in the AR market. So Daniel Defense did.
