Default The Truth About Assault Weapons

Good article here on that.

Do you agree on the term Modern Sporting Rifles (MSR) ?

Yes I do. Here's why...

The AR-15 as we know it today was derived from the original

AR-10, a 7.62x51mm "battle rifle" as created By Eugene Stoner of ArmaLite,

a division of the Fairchild Aircraft Corporation in 1954-55. By 1957, the basic AR-10 design

was rescaled and substantially modified by ArmaLite to accommodate the .223 Remington cartridge,

and given the designation AR-15. Further developed by Colt, who bought the rights in 1959, the

AR-15 would eventually become the M-16, the design that would be first purchased by General LeMay

and the Air Force in 1961. Around this same time, Stoner left ArmaLite and signed on with Colt as a consultant.

The M-16 is a full auto "battle rifle", later scaled down to a 3 burst mode of fire. The AR-15 is a semi-auto

"modern sporting rifle" sold to the civilian population first as a varmint/plinker and it has now has finally caught

the attention of the big sporting rifle manufacturers like Remington, Mossberg, Ruger...as well as SIG Sauer,

Smith & Wesson, and Olympic Arms. The list of other "builder" companies...well, it's very extensive. Some states

are already allowing the AR-15 in major calibers like .308 to take game. The AR-15 is now chambered in just about

any caliber you can think of...from .22 long rifle to .50 Beowulf...making it America's gun of choice for sporting and self defense.

It is a modern sporting rifle !
