    What brand is a mixed matched AR?

    If you have an upper from brand A and a lower from brand B, what brand is your AR? I've seen a few ads with a title that says they're selling a Brand whatever AR. But the description says only part of the rifle is that brand. So how much of the rifle needs to be from one brand to label the AR that brand?

    This post may or may not lead to a spirited discussion. If it does, please keep it civil and on topic.

    Why not just message the person and have them fix it or delete the thread all together and have them re do it

    It should be listed how you bought/built it.

    For example:
    Complete Noveske n4 rifle

    Or
    Complete bcm upper on aero lower with cmmg parts kit

    Or if it’s a ground up build

    Noveske barrel, vltor upper, dd hand guard, on Seekins lower, seekins lpk with magpul furniture.

    Unless it was a complete rifle from the factory or build using complete lower/upper from the same manufacturer. The individual parts should be listed unless some part was bought complete like an AAC 12.5 inch upper. From the factory it came with a nickel boron bolt carrier, and knights urx3 rail. That can be left out of the add Bc it would be understood it’s a factory upper

    It would be wise to list the parts unless itís a factory rifle. Any modifications to a factory rifle should be listed.

    In addition to the parts specification, it would also be helpful to list how and who assembled it, if it is a non-factory assembled rifle.

    My post was inspired by some ads but was a general question.

    My first AR is a Colt. Several more followed until I bought a Armalite. Then a couple Olympic arms and more Colts and Colt GI parts kits, Eagle Arms receivers and then I broke into the AR10 game with some Panther arms which became DPMS. Then suddenly there were some untold number of AR rifle and parts manufacturers jumping on the AR train and with them came the self proclaimed aficionados who assembled 10 or 30 or 50 AR rifles and decided they knew more than people who were building them in the 1980ís. Mine range from what many here consider the elite of all AR rifles to the lesser and even budget brands. Many are those Iíve built using parts from various manufacturers that somehow came together and wound up being some of the longest lasting most problem free rifles Iíve shot to date. Iíd rather hand pick a few primary parts and assemble exactly what I want than buy a prebuilt AR from a manufacturer because of their name. I stick with what I know after more than 35 years of building and shooting these guns and I fully understand that the vast majority of everything AR these days is....hype.
    Hype that I see right through. Hype that makes a lot of new AR owners believe they are ready to be a commando and their AR is the best and no rifle anyone could build for less than $1000 could possibly fire and function and hold up to the combat conditions that they will never see...
    If you treat the new purchase of an AR like buying a car and worry more about resale value or bragging rights than the purpose for buying it, then go spend those dollars and pimp that bad boy out until itís so heavy and customized that youíre the only person who will actually want it for the money and when you want to move on or pay your bills you can part it out, but for about 2/3 or less what you have in it.
    So, what brand is my AR? What brand do you wanna see? Daniel Defense? Stag, Sig, BCM, Yeah, I have it and some youíve never heard of. I enjoy them all.
    Because I know.

    All of my AR's are built on Poverty Pony or 80% Receivers.

    In the past I have disposed of a few.

    I generally list the major components, Receiver, Upper, Barrel, BCG and FCG.

    I don't get into any great detail, as the audience here is easily bored.

    For instance, I don't list maker of gas tube, buffer assembly, or furniture unless it is something out of the ordinary.

    If upper and lower are not by the same company then it is not that type of rifle. For example if you have a BCM upper and a PSA lower then it is a frakenbuild and should be sold as such and maybe the WTS thread title should say so...... But it is up to the buyer to read the post also. I did see one on here where they said it was one brand but only the upper was that brand and the lower was another brand but at least it was listed that way in the for sale thread and was not trying to be pawned off as the name brand upper.

    I got mutts and factory guns, Colt, DPMS and Ruger. Took one of the Ruger's out yesterday, SR7.62. Was impressed using GI ammo with the hit ratio out to 300 yards with a 1-4 Viper LPVO on steel down to a 6" plate. Just a bipod and a 8# stock trigger.
