When it comes to SHTF guns, the AR-15 is one of the very best there is. Their increased popularity as a self-defense gun has caused sales of the firearm to boom. And with so many new AR-15 owners, comes more and more need for technical explanations in terms of the AR-15’s inner-workings.
This is one of the best videos I’ve ever seen in terms of explaining the ins and outs of the AR-15. Whether you want an AR-15 SHTF gun, or you simply want it for self-defense, or hunting, understanding how all the parts combine to work can help you with upgrading the firearm to be more comfortable, more accurate, and longer lasting. It can also help people who want to learn how to build their own AR-15, which is becoming an increasingly popular method. You don’t commonly save money by building your own AR-15, however, you often get exactly what you want. If you don’t know the nooks and crannies of the firearm, however, its tough to understand exactly what you may want to add on to a purchased AR-15, or build one from scratch.
Watch this “how an AR-15 Rifle works” in 3d animation video. It’s truly an amazing video.
The AR-15 is the best SHTF gun on the market in my opinion. I’ve written about the M&P Sport 2 as one of the better AR-15 options for those who may be on a budget. Due to demand, prices on AR-15’s are coming down each month (or so it seems). Knowing how your AR-15 works on the inside will help you make decisions on which AR-15 you inevitably purchase. As always, gun safety and legal gun ownership is the priority. Check with your state laws before purchasing any firearm.
