Stocking Stuffers for Your AR-15

Are you or is someone you know a black rifle lover? I’m a black rifle lover so believe me, we love gifts for our AR-15 just as much as we love gifts for ourselves. An unexpected little something in the stocking for an AR will put a smile on their face. In fact, you know what I might do this year? I might just hang my AR its own little stocking and fill it up with treats.

Leapers UTG AR-15 Quick Detach Sling Swivel

My office secret Santa got me the Leapers UTG quick-detach sling swivel last year for my S&W M&P 15-22. It is still going strong. Not all rifles come with swivels or sling swivel studs, so this is the perfect solution if you want to attach a single-point sling to your AR-15. It is quick and easy to install. I like it because it is removable. Made from anodized aircraft aluminum, it has a 1.25-inch sling loop. The Leapers UTG AR-15 quick detach sling swivel will attach it to any Picatinny or Weaver rail.

TAPCO AR-15 End Plate Sling Adaptor

If you want to attach a single-point sling to your AR-15, you need the TAPCO AR-15 end plate sling adaptor. It replaces the locking plate and allows for 180-degree movement. Transitioning from carry positions is quick and easy. Proudly made in the USA by TAPCO, these black manganese-finished heat-treated steel sling adapter are built to last.

Leapers UTG 12 Pack of AR-15 Rail Covers (ARR-584)

After awhile, the sharp edges on your AR-15’s handguards can seem a little rough. Cover them with Leapers UTG rail covers. It protects the rails and your hands as well as providing a comfortable grip. At 2 x 1.375 x 0.75 inches, it fits carbine-length rails. Made of polymer, it is lightweight and provides a flexible fit that is secure and snug. The package includes 12 covers. Each rail cover is designed to hold up to the extreme temperatures of a long day of shooting.

Mako AR-15 Magazine Well Grip

If you prefer to hold your AR-15 by the mag well, this grip gives you a firmer and more secure grip. The Mako mag well grip fits MIL-SPEC lowers and allows for faster magazine changes. It only weighs 2.9 ounces and mounts right under the rifle’s receiver.

Magpul MOE 5 Inch, 11 Slot Polymer Rail

Magpul is my favorite AR-15 accessory company. Everything I have ever purchased from them has been tough, long lasting and a perfect fit for my rifle. Made to fit Magpul’s handguards, the 5-inch, 11-slot Picatinny rail allows you to add optics, grips and other accessories to your AR-15. Constructed in the USA from a proprietary reinforced composite, Magpul took the extra effort to round all of the edges to ensure a comfortable grip. All mounting hardware is included. The overall length of the rail is 4.9 inches.
