How to Fix AR15 Malfunctions

How to Fix a Malfunctioning AR15 Like any machine, your AR15 will never be 100% perfectly reliable. Parts will break, magazines will fail, and tight tolerances will loosen with wear. Even with ruthless maintenance, one unlucky clot of dust can shut down your rifle in an instant. With the right knowledge, you can fix most issues without spending money, but the wrong diagnosis can end up feeling like a wild goose chase. If you're new to fixing ARs, that’s alright. This blog details most common malfunctions, their origins, and a few solutions, so you can get started on a fix right away.

X39 Space Gun Giveaway

With Glocktober closed, many of you may wonder how we could possibly have another giveaway lined up for November. 4 Glocks in 4 weeks? They told us we were crazy. They told us it wasn’t possible. They were wrong. And now we’re proving them wrong again with a rifle to celebrate sci-fi cinema. This is our X39 Space Gun Giveaway. If you’ve been keeping a finger on the pulse of movie releases, you know that there’s an upcoming film in a renowned science-fiction franchise. Regardless of your opinion on the series, its iconic blasters have a distinct style.

[Glocktober Finale] Grey Ghost Giveaway

As we roll into the last week of Glocktober, we’d like to thank you for taking this adventure with us. Glocktober was our first foray into this brave new world, and we’re happy to hear all the hype. So far, we’ve given away 3 Glock-inspired pistols. Each one drew from a theme within the Glock community, including EDC, Competition, and a tactical Roland (Fauxland) Special.

It’s an original creation by Grey Ghost that takes many of the premium features found in custom Glock pistols and makes them standard. In the hand, the CPC is more...[ Read More ]

[Glocktober] Roland Special Giveaway!

This Giveaway has ended. Congratulations to our winner, Kelly H. in Washington! You can view all current and past giveaways on our giveaway blog page. The future of pistols is now. Well, kind of. To understand the ingenuity behind the Roland Special, you must take a step back and look at history. Over the last 40 years, not a lot has changed in firearms tech. Our military is still using AR15-pattern rifles and open-bolt belt-feds. While there have been substantial improvements in design, materials, and accessories, the fundamentals have changed little. Until a program like the Army’s Next Generation Squad Weapon (NGSW) introduces polymer or caseless ammunition, there’s no reason to stray from proven rifles. P...[ Read More ]

[Glocktober] Built for Competition Giveaway!

This Giveaway has ended. Congratulations to our winner, Julian G., right here in Houston, Texas! You can view all current and past giveaways on our giveaway blog page. Week two of Glocktober is here, and we’re changing the game with this giveaway. Last week, we presented our take on an EDC build. Compact, accurate, and faithfully reliable, our EDC pistol was built entirely around the needs of personal protection. This week, we wanted to focus on something new—something distant from the stresses of self-defense. We wanted to bring our attention to the ‘sport’ function of shooting sports. With that in mind, this week’s giveaway (if you haven’t already gathered from the title) is our “Built for Competition” Glock pistol....[ Read More ]
