Win This Rifle Build! Lightweight AR15 Giveaway!

You ever hear the phrase “ounces are pounds”? If you know the history of the AR15 and its offspring, you know that weight is everything. It started in Vietnam, where the M16 made its debut as a replacement to the 10lb+ M14.

The rifle was the only thing keeping man at the top of the food chain, and in the untamed wilderness, a well-placed shot meant the difference between life and d...[ Read More ]

Builders' Hacks: Must-Have Tools and Tricks

As any builder can tell you, putting together an AR-15 rifle is a personal process. Everyone has their own methods and techniques, and individualism makes the finished product so much more rewarding. It’s difficult to convey the sense of pride and accomplishment that comes from shutting the bolt on a rifle you built with your own hands. No doubt there are plenty of great poetics about the relationship between a warrior and his weapon. Maybe that’s why it’s so frustrating when a build goes wrong. Every day, rifle builders around the country make avoidable mistakes that create a disappointing—or even dangerous—final product. To quote Pat McNamara, “Experience is often something we get shortly after we need it.” In rifle building, this les...[ Read More ]
