The next big thing in AR-15s may not be a piston driven operating system, or a fancy internal coating that requires little lubrication, or a new rail system for attaching accessories. The next big thing just might be the caliber that the AR-15 is shooting.
Pink furniture for your AR-15 is so last season. I’ve been noticing a trend lately—everyone is moving towards
Our friend, Shelley Rae, over at Gun Nuts Media made a blog post this week about the different, high-quality parts on her AR-15. Reading about her build is a good place to start when you are ready to rev up your stock AR-15. Isn’t one of the reasons why we love the AR-15 rifle so much is because we can customize it? Shelley mentioned quite a few different companies’ accessories she has on her rifle. What’s better? All of today’s recommendations are made in the USA!
Like Shelley, we recommend these four items today:
Daniel Defense XV Upper
Want it? Buy it! Item: 2-DD9015
If you want a truly customized AR-15, you will need to build it from the ground up. The upper and lower assemblies are the first two parts who will want to purchase. The Daniel Defense XV upper in 5.56mm NATO is a great price. It has a 16-inch Chrome Moly Vanadium Steel, cold-hammer forged barrel with a 1:7-inch twist; a good twist rate if you are wanting match-grade performance out of your rifle. The bolt carrier group is MIL-SPEC MP-tested and has a properly staked gas key. This upper assembly also includes an A1 birdcage flash hider, front and rear sights, and a M4 polymer handguard. Daniel Defense manufactures their parts right here in the USA and each part is inspected and hand-assembled.
Advanced Armament BLACKOUT Flash Hider
Want it? Buy it! Item: 2-AACO100197
If you do not plan to suppress your AR, this Blackout non-mount flash hider is an affordable option from Advanced Armament. We all want high-quality accessories, without a jaw-dropping price tag and here is one such product. The Blackout flash hider successfully eliminates your muzzle flash and is made of high-strength, corrosion-resistant aerospace alloy.
Midwest Industries AR-15 Low Profile Rear Sight
Want it? Buy it! Item: ARR-803
What good is your rifle without good sights? A little more expensive, but well worth it, these sights from Midwest Industries lock into place solidly and provide an extremely low-profile design, allowing you to add a red dot or other sights. The ball detent design is battle-proven; offering a surface to grab onto even in the worst conditions and the windage knob is easy to use.
Ergo Grip AR-15/M16 SureGrip Tactical Deluxe Grip Kit
Want it? Buy it! Item: 60120
One of the most affordable, excellent quality additions to add to your AR-15: Ergo Grips feel great in your hand, and offer better control over your rifle. And, you don’t need a bunch of hardware and parts to install it.
Bleeding Zombie Target
OK, so he doesn’t amble and stumble towards you slowly, but this dude actually “bleeds” when you shoot him. Chris is a life-sized, 3-dimensional zombie target that makes perfect practice for when your training for the apocalypse. He stands 33.5” tall and comes with a mounting stake. Even better, Chris isn’t an alien zombie, he was “born” in the United States.
Zombie Industries fills their zombie target with biodegradable material, so clean up is a cinch. It can withstand 1,000 of rounds of various calibers, so shoot away! Even if you are not into the whole zombie apocalypse thing, Chris makes a fun and different target to shoot at.
Blackhawk Fury Gloves
I’m not really a fireman, but I play one TV. Well. Not really, but these Blackhawk Fury Gloves with Nomex are what I would wear if I was fighting fires. The Fury gloves made with Nomex are heavy-duty work gloves perfect for extreme heat environments. Nomex is also good for electrical work and for the oil/gas rig. The Fury gloves have padded protection on the knuckles and the back of the hand.
The fit is secure and comfortable and still allows for perfect dexterity of your fingers to work or fire your weapon effectively.
Pink is the new black!
Who says you can’t look tough in pink? Believe me, who is gonna mess with a girl carrying a gun anyway? Besides being just a t-shirt, Advanced Armament adds some excellent suggestions on multiple uses for your shirt:
- Blot lipstick
- Touch up eyeliner
- Win wet T-shirt contest
Not only that, but Advanced Armament recognizes that guns and skulls and pink on a women’s sized, (sizes range from small to xx-large) non-baggy, cute form-fitting shirt beats out big and baggy manly shirts any day. Well, for girls anyway.
Did I mention that it’s pink and has a gun on it?
