TIP #2:
The Anderson rifle bills itself as the worlds only lubeless weapon using its RF85 treatment that is in the metal. They show weapon testing 5000 rounds downrange with no lube used at all.

DPMS Oracle AR review

TIP #3:
The DPMS Oracle is about a $700 entry level rig that comes with a red dot.

Not mil-spec and not top level but it still works great. Give the weapon a good inspection once you buy it and make sure you check that the bolt carrier gas pin is staked.

Check the trigger pins and get an anti-walk pin for the trigger.

Check the castle nut on the bolt and put some lock tight on it and it should stay. Make sure the chamber is nice and smooth and not any roughness. Put in 1 inch gas rings as an upgrade. Make sure your gas block is straight.

QUESTION: What is the difference between AM-15 and AR-15 rifles?

ANSWER: The AM-15 is made by Anderson Manufacturing in Hebron, Kentucky USA.

Colt has a trademark on term AR-15.

Colt acquired the AR-15 name from Armalite as its 15th firearm design, but after HR3355 banned them by name from 1994–2004 used other designations like “Match Target.”

In general, most people will call them all AR-15s or AR15s without the hyphen.

Non-cosmetic differences come from the components each manufacturer chooses for a specific model, like caliber, barrel material/length/weight/rifling twist/manufacturing process, trigger, hand guard stock, etc. That determines your shooting experience far more than the brand.

ARs made before 1994 are more valuable in the few states (notably Connecticut) which grandfather them in their “assault weapon” bans. This may be inferred from the specific model as with the Colt AR-15 model SP1 Sporter.
