PMBR was started in 2014 on Facebook. After years of participating and observing the AR industry becoming divided from a brotherhood of second amendment supporters, to a division of keyboard warriors, trolls and bashers. Consequently, after being verbally attacked and belittled I started a Facebook group and it is dedicated to everyday “JOE” who enjoys affordable builds.

We created PMBR.us with the average “Joe Builder” in mind. We wanted to offer a platform that would not require discrimination of any American’s pocketbook. We keep it simple, so builders can focus on creating and building an amazing AR that reflects what they had in mind. Best of all, you can purchase products that fit within anyone’s budget.

After seeing an increased need for an affordable AR website, we developed one of the very few Second Amendment friendly websites that allow for builders to choose freely exactly what they can afford. We strive to offer product Made in USA.

Today, we're proud to empower individuals around the United States to realize that everyone who deserves an AR platform rifle, and we're excited to see what you create.

Lastly, this is how the PMBR.us mission statement was created, and it states:

We at Poor Man’s Black Rifle believe that every United States citizen, that is legally and mentally adept to own a firearm should be able to protect themselves, family and country regardless of their income.
