AR .223/5.56mm Platform available chamberings
AR .308 Platform available chamberings
Uppers, Lowers, and internal components
We use only mil-spec upper and lower receivers and internal components in our AR .223 platforms.Our large frame AR type rifle are built using DPMS upper and lower receivers for maximum versatility and component availability. A Timney 3lb solid shoe single stage trigger is standard equipment for all of our AR type rifles, and we can also use triggers from Geissele Automatics, Jewell, and Rock River Arms to fit the customer's operational needs.
One look at the world of modern sporting rifles and you can see that barrel options are endless! To sort through some of the confusion, we stick with a core group of manufacturers for barrels and barrel blanks that have proven themselves to be accurate, reliable, and of the highest quality. For complete custom barrels, we use Krieger and Brux barrel blanks. Both companies offer cut rifled blanks of the absolute highest quality, with accuracy records to prove it. These are recommended for non standard chamberings, and for the ultimate accuracy potential. Barrel blanks are chambered, headspaced, and cut and crowned in house. We also use drop in type barrel assemblies from Daniel Defense, E.R. Shaw, Wilson Arms, and Liberty Barrels. All barrels not machined in house are subjected to full borescope inspection prior to installation, to ensure that quality meets our standards. If it does not, we don't use it, period.
Stocks, Grips, and Forearms
Here is where options really get complicated. There are abviously more buttstocks, pistol grips, handguards, and rail systems available for this platform than one human being can keep track of, with more being invented every day. We stock rail systems and forends from Troy Industries, Midwest Industries, and Precision Reflex. These are by no means the only players in the game, but we have found these companies to build extremely high quality products that meet our customer's needs perfectly. We carry stocks and grips by Magpul and Hogue, for the same reason. If you are looking for a different system on your dream rifle, we will be glad to accomodate your exact specifications.
Base pricing for an AR .223 platform build is around $1600 without optics, and AR .308 builds start around $2000. Our gas operated rifles carry the same 3/4MOA at 100 yards accuracy guarantee as our bolt rifles, and delivery times average around 12-16 weeks.
