What goes into your AR Build?

Choosing the Right Barrel
Barrels and Bolt Carriers have the largest impact on the accuracy of your AR. You’ll choose length, caliber, finish, material, gas system length, lining, and twist rate.
Picking a Gas system
Pistol, carbine, mid, rifle or piston driven? Your gas system is the core of your rifles operation. The pressure, cyclic rate, feeding, and ejection; almost every action of your AR is impacted by your gas system. Selecting the gas system components for your build and accessories is critical to the reliability and feel of your firearm.
Whether you choose a free-floating or a drop-in handguard, it has to be designed for your gas system. Handguard choices are almost limitless but pairing the right handguard for function and aesthetics is the goal.
Bolt carrier groups & Charging handles
A quality bolt carrier group makes all the difference in accuracy and how ‘smooth’ your AR feels when firing. Choosing the right coating for your bolt carrier and charging handles based on your setup is just the icing on top.
Choosing a Lower parts kit
From complete Mil-Spec lower parts kits to picking out each part individually, we will help you weigh the pros and cons of parts like extended bolt catches, battery assist devices, oversized takedown pins, and more.
A smooth, crisp trigger will complement the quality of your AR, making it easier to shoot consistently and quickly. We will assist you in selecting the right trigger based on your application and preferences.
Grips & Stocks
Grip and stock options are as varied as the AR platform itself. We’ll get you the correct parts for the look, feel, and function that you are after.
The buffer system
Round, flat, braided, captured? What kind of spring should you get and why? Carbine, H1, H2, H3? What about buffer weights? Tuning your buffer system to match your build will greatly reduce the felt recoil of your AR as well as improve feeding & ejection, cyclic rate, and bolt bounce.
