AR15

Doing this is something I've talked about before, and I have a couple of friends who have kicked the idea around as well. Why not mount a scout scope on an AR15 pattern rifle? Luckily, I happened to have a Leupold mount sitting around, and a Leupold FX-II Scout so I naturally paired them on…

Four or five years ago I decided to ditch my A2 carry handle and put a Troy BUIS on my AR.  Being new to the AR platform, I thought it would be a good idea to purchase the Troy BUIS with the Di-Optic Aperture (DOA) instead of a standard A2 aperture. Fast forward to 2015…

Unfortunately, there were some feed issues with the gun, as demonstrated below: After some testing, it was determined that the cause of the issue was likely…

Sometimes you just need meat and potatoes. The AR15 market is so crowded right now; everything from basic entry level rifles all the way up to multi-thousand dollar high-end near custom guns.
