The First Official NRA AR-15

nrarifle1

It’s a first in NRA history: a limited-run AR-15 is being released that is officially licensed by the NRA. It’s the first AR-15 ever to be endorsed by the organization and with only 1,000 being made it’s going to go incredibly fast. The gun is being manufactured by Black Rain Ordnance and the NRA name will be placed on two spots on the finished AR-15s. “NRA 1817″ will be printed in white letters on the dust cover and the complete logo will be placed on the magazine well. The gun will have a 6-position shoulder stock, a 16” stainless steel fluted barrel, and a custom aluminum handguard, among other features. Whether you’re a member of the NRA or just a fan of well-made AR-15’s, this one is worth a look.

    Dear NRA: Welcome to the party, pal. Now work on impressing me by officially licensing a suppressed SBR.

  • Don Ward

    Oh hey. Maybe now NRA will be able to afford to fight an anti-gun initiative in Washington state instead of punting the ball while callously raking in dues from this state’s gun owners.

    But danged that they don’t give you the type of aluminum the receivers are made from, or the SS type. And then there’s the 1/8 twist….
    And the billet receivers….

    Obviously marketed for guys in states that have never had sweeping overarching infringements on their rights to to feel like their supporting freedom, while the NRA is conspicuously absent from New Jersey, New York, California, Washington, Illinois, Michigan, and Conneticut supreme court rooms.

    What about the NRA logo’d m&p 15s they had at the nra-ila banquets a couple years ago?
