This is one of the many projects I am working on, and one closest to my heart. I am truly enjoying sharing my passion for firearms, and building AR-15’s with my love. The his and her AR-15 project consists of 2 Aero Precision consecutive serial numbered AR-15 receivers. The goal with this project is to build 2 identical, light weight rifles while balancing performance and overall cost.
To help reduce the over all weight we chose to run a 16” pencil barrel from Faxon Firearms this barrel comes in at a low 1.2lbs. The barrel had been a suggestion from Tim @ TACCOM3G.com which also brings up another item, we went with TACCOM’s ultra light weight comp to keep the extended weight to a minimum. A few other items we are working into the light weight mix are a NON-Forward assist upper receiver, an a Air Lite series 15” keymod handguard from GunTecUSA which comes in at only 8.5 ounces. I am anxious to see how this project turns out, once we have the rifles assembled with the components we choose, the next step is a custom Cerakote finish by Applied Arsenal Finishes.
