    I am working on my first AR-15 build. I plan on building it from 3 components: 1. BCG 2. Upper receiver 3. Complete lower I have the BCG already. I have been researching the build, and even have a book, but need help answering one question. If I install the BCG into the upper receiver myself, do...

    All you have to say is...St. Louis couple. Do you think Joe 'Single Shot ' Biden can realize that or is he too far down the road to senility?

    How many of us have stockpiled some AR15 bandoliers? I am sitting here thinking of various situations, especially with the coronavirus (COVID-19). Worse case situation friends and family members bug out to the farm and I arm them with an AR-15, or other weapon. So what about magazines? What...

    Some may of seen the news where Trumps boy raised a fuss with an AR-15 magazine with Hillary behind bars on it. Found the website for them: https://www.spikestactical.com/collections/magazines/hillary-for-prison-p-mag/

    North Carolina. "Agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested approximately 30 men and women for “identification theft and fraud” from Bear Creek Arsenal — a manufacturer of AR-15 firearms and firearm products — in Sanford this morning." Apparently the company was...

    Shortly after the FL shootings, I finally got around to purchasing some guns. I had tax return to spend, so it was time to go to gun store. I always knew I needed to get a pistol first and for most. got semi-9mm. Then I was deciding between a rifle or shotgun. went with a nice pumper 20g. I...

    Had a chance to see Adams Arms at range day, and at the first day of SHOT show. At range day Adams Arms had a 6.5 creedmoor set up. It was an amazing rifle that was a pleasure to shoot.

    You are in a house and are in need of clearing it. Let's say you are not bogged down by much gear. You have a choice, a pistol caliber carbine or a short barreled AR-15 in .223 (with or without a butt stock). I know a pistol is the most tight-area maneuverable gun you could use, but I'd rather...

    Alright, I have my 10.5" barrel AR-15 in 5.56x45mm, and it is a blast to shoot. I'm used to full-length rifles, but with such a short barrel, which ammo do you all use for "defensive" situations? I've been told ballistic tip 4-legged varmint loads work. What say you all?

    A local gun store has a used Bushmaster M16 A3 in stock. It has the removable carry handle, 20 inch barrel and standard front sight. If I remember right, asking price is around $500. Rifle seems to be in ok / good shape. I did not break the rifle down and look at the inside. Just looked at...

    I'd like to get into the AR-15 game. I have two AKs, but I'd like to have an AR-15 for the 5.56 cartridge. I have the lower already. I've seen some cheaper AR-15 uppers with the old-style round hand guards with no rails and just a front sight. I'd like to get one, but can you easily remove the...

    Since the election has turned in our favor for now...I want to build an Alternative AR15 caliber rifle. This is for obvious reasons. 5.56 is great for what it is. Lightweight, close range, medium powered combat round. It stacks cheap and deep, I reload(am planning and always looking to learn). I...

    I completed my first AR build about 3 weeks ago. Surprise, I'm already on my second. I want to go for more of a traditional M4 style, and need a good quality carry handle sight. I want to keep it around $60 or less. No Chinese aluminum crap. I would love a good Rock River carry handle, which I...

    A shop near me is having a close out sale on all reloading supplies and has a decent selection of powder, I already cleaned out their primers:D:. Coincidentally a couple friends and I are about to receive a metric ton (maybe exaggerating a tad:cool:) of 556 brass so we are open to trying new...

    I am not starting this to discuss rifle options other than the barrel. Let's say I'm looking at 2 rifles the price is the same and one has 1/9" twist the other is 1/7" twist. It's my understanding that 1/9 can handle everything from 40-70gr bullets while the quicker 1/7 can handle heavier...

    Anyone here use the Specialty Defense SDS MOLLE M16/M4 magazine shingle pouch on their load carrier? I bought a voodoo tactical pouch for 30 round AR-15 magazines. Each pouch is a different size and it was made in china. Instead of buying china made stuff I thought why not buy some surplus...

    I'm looking at constructing my first AR build over the next few months and I've been searching around for a lower to start with. Since I'm on a budget I've been trying to keep the expenses (not including FFL transfer) to under $100. I've been thinking about going with one of the Anderson Arms...

    Checking gunbroker it seems Colt 6920s have gone from $850 - $900 to around $1,200 to as high as $2,500. Not as bad as after sandy hook but the price gouging is underway. At the George R Brown Houston gun show January 2 I saw a truckload of Colt 6920s for less than $900. One guy had PSA D&H...
