Uppers, Lowers, and internal components
Our custom AR platform rifles are built on Mega Arms billet upper and lower receivers for best fit and accuracy. Mil-Spec forged upper and lowers are available as an option for 5.56mm platform rifles. We use only mil-spec or better internal components for our AR builds. 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 and Jewell 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 Lilja barrel blanks. Both companies offer 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 Lilja and Daniel Defense. 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.
Base pricing for an AR .223 platform build is around $2200 without optics, and AR .308 builds start around $3000. 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.
