Doing some very early planning for an AR I plan to build later this year, and I'd prefer to go local as much as possible. Searching here and using google haven't produced any results for a list of AR manufacturers by location.

I've tried numerous searches with various combinations of the words:
AZ, AR-15, AR, manufacturer, location, and list

I'm sorry if I've missed it somewhere obvious, but does such a list exist and can someone point me towards it?

Thanks,

Try American Spirit Arms. Small shop, but they offer lowers with their name on them and all the accessories. Black Weapons Armory in Tucson also offers lowers with their name as well as all the extra goodies.

Thanks, guys. That's certainly along the lines of what I'm looking for.

To me it'd be the manufacturer, but I guess builder is the more appropriate term. I'm looking for stuff like QD, American Spirit Arms, etc.

This will be my first AR, and I'm new to the AR game, but I keep reading/hearing that there are tons of AR builders in AZ so hopefully there'll be even more than the 4 listed so far to put on a list.

Maybe it would make a good sticky if someone were to build such a list (unless it were viewed as free advertising, which I'm sure would be frowned upon).

Another Az lower guy is AGP Arms. They are located in Tempe and do a great job on the lowers they make right there in their own shop.(They don't have someone else make the lower and put their name on it.)

Sun Devil Mfg does high end lowers and uppers from billet. They aren't cheap, but they are very well made.

Patriot Ordnance Factory(POF) is located on the west side and also do a good job.

Last I heard was that PlumCrazy in Lake Havasu was doing the polymer lowers.

I read someplce that Vltor Weapon Systems is made here in Az someplace.

Cavalry Arms is in the east valley. They used to make a very nice lightweight 1 pc polymer lower receiver that had a built in A2 length butstock attached. Due to some problems with ATF they surrendered their mfg liscnese for the lowers. They still make the A2 and 6 position buttstocks as well as handguards and pistol grips in every length and color.

Young Mfg is here in Phx and they make some very nice BCG as well as a couple of handguards.

GGG in Tucson does some nice mounts and sights.

Kings Armory is making a nice flash hider/muzzle break in the east valley

I don't know of anyone actually making barrels here in Az.(or the hardware for the barrels... barrel nuts,delta ring)

That's all I can think of at the moment. If I think of more I will add them to the list.
Good Luck!

Is Dane Armory still in business? I think they're the Mesa/Gilbert location. My brother-in-law has one of their lowers.

We're going to be producing AR buffers and custom barrels soon as well.

Sure would be awesome to have a whole manufacturing availability for AR parts in AZ... I know the misc shit doesnt have a lot of money just be nice to be able to piece together an AR from all AZ parts...

+1000 for AGP Arms in Tempe... have four of their lowers... always TITs!
