You can't find an AR 15 on the shelf in a store, but I did find this Faxon Firearms Ascent Modern Sporting Rifle 16" Carbine chambered in 5.56 for less than seven hundred dollars online. The Faxon Ascent AR 15 is a budget conscience buy and a good choice for home defense or even hunting. In this video I would like you to take a look at this AR 15 rifle with me. I think this 16" carbine is an affordable AR 15 rifle for home defense or other applications that you might want to look at purchasing. I was able to buy the Faxon Modern Sporting Rifle online and have it shipped to my local FFL dealer. I picked this AR 15 rifle up 4 days after I ordered so the process was very fast. Although this AR 15 is relatively inexpensive I don't think you will be disappointed with the core of the rifle. Especially if you are looking for a solid base to upgrade for your specific home defense or hunting needs.
