The Atlantic: AR-15 History

To the Editor, The Atlantic

My Ideas article will cover the history of the AR-15, including information about the original patent application, design aspects that make it different and similar to other firearms, and why it became popular.

For credentials, I’ve served with the U.S. Army Reserve Marksmanship Program for over two decades, have been the editor of American Gunsmith since 2009, and hold five Master/Distinguished national-level marksmanship classifications.
