Aero Precision just shook up the budget AR-15 market with the introduction of their $699 AC-15. This is Aero Precision’s first entry into the complete rifle market and they should be competitive right out of the gate with it’s affordable price and solid features.
At $699 (less with a coupon, see below), it is priced to take on carbines like the Ruger AR-556 and S&W M&P-15 Sport. From where I sit, the AC-15 appears to offer significant advantages over either including a better twist rate, standard parts, and a dust cover. This is a significant development for those looking to get into an AR-15 on a budget.
