As we mentioned in the past The 50 States of AR-15 project is living project. That means the rifles may have updates from time to time, with new products coming out, and changes in legislation ect. So Here is our first rifle to be updated. The California rifle received the Mid-Evil Industries TX3 & 360 Degree Vertical Fore Grip (VFG). The 360 VFG is pretty slick and allows the user to further customize how they manipulate the rifle. The TX3 which comes with a Ambi QD end plate is a nifty tool that can be used to pop those tight take down pins. Check out the video for more info.
So you want to build a Cheap / Low cost / Budget AR-15? Well here is a video dedicated to that… In this video we will show you how to build an AR-15 lower receiver for around $100. We use an FMK AR-1 Extreme Polymer lower receiver. We will be following this video with a part 2 building a low cost/budget upper receiver. Then of course we will be testing out the complete rifle.
Thanks for watching, and as always “Have Fun Shooting…”
I am really thankful for the opportunity to show you all this product. This grip (at the time of filming) has not yet hit the shelves of your local gun shop. The 15 degree vertical AR-15 pistol grip from Hogue Grips, may help with the ergonomics while using a sig brace or similar with an AR15 pistol. Watch for this grip to hit your local store soon…
Here’s a really quick/short video testing out the Elftmann Tactical 3 Gun Trigger for the first time. This thing is truely bad ass. It has a 2-4lb trigger pull that is adjustable, it’s light weight / skeletonized, and comes with a lifetime warranty (and yes each trigger has it’s own serial number).
Yes we are back with another rifle the #Illinois rifle! I’m excited about this one as Illinois is my home state as many of you know & this build features SN# 81 of the BAT Arms (our sponsoring FFL) AR-15 lower receivers. It also features some interesting products, such at the Manticore Arms Transformer hand guard. All in all this rifle was built with the idea of using the idea of creating a modern civilian M4 carbine. Keep it simple yet adaptable, while including some updated features. The R-Guns stock for example includes the addition of QD attachments on both sides to allow for the use of modern sling mounts as does the hand guard. All mounted on a DR Guns billet upper & BAT Arms Billet lower. The lower has some nice features as well, such a threaded bolt release pin, rear threaded take down pin detent hole with set screw to retain the rear detent spring, & a tensioning screw to remove any play between the upper and lower.
I hope you all enjoy the Illinois rifle and the rest of The 50 States of AR-15 project. Thank you for watching, and till next time have fun shooting!
So Laura found this cool website, that allows you to click on states to show which ones you may have visited. Well she suggested this could be a cool way to make a map of the states that have we have completed rifles for. I took it one step further and made to 2 maps the first with the red states showing completed rifles (yes 4 are currently completed with several more nearing), and then one in green showing the states we have receivers for or currently in transit to us.
More videos will be coming soon, we are hoping to secure a barrel for the Arizona rifle which is the last component needed to complete the rifle. And for those who have been following on Instagram & Facebook you may have seen some of the photos of the progress. It’s a pretty slick rifle, with components from KE Arms, Elftmann Tactical, GuntecUSA, Young Manufacturing, & our friends from BeatenZone Manufacturing. Stay Tuned…. & Till next time… “Have Fun Shooting…”
Here’s a quick little video Laura made showing how to install an Elftmann Tactical Ambi Speed Safety (Push Button Safety) for your AR-15. This safety is pretty slick, and super quick (hence the name). Check them out at www.elftactical.com and see their line up of AR15 triggers and other components. Elftmann Tactical is an Arizona based company and you will see their products in the upcoming Arizona rifle build of The 50 States of AR-15 project.
Here is a little montage I put together with the footage from Shot Show – Industry Day at the Range. What a blast pun intended… Laura and I, shot a ton of cool firearms, however I would say my favorite one I shot would have to be the Full Auto 300blackout suppressed sbr from Aero Precision. We also tested out HIPERFIRE’s Triggers, some of Rock Island Armory’s pistols, along with some of the offerings from Springfield Armory, and more..
