It’s true what they say – you can find a silver lining in any situation. While being captured at home for 2 whole days under Hurricane Irma attack, without internet, phone, lights and etc., and those of you who know me, it’s something of impossible for me, I am always on the go, I got to thinking about my clients and on frequent requests that I am getting as custom orders.
The majority of my clients are male, and it’s very rarely I see a woman calling me asking me about a particular product. It would usually be my male client, asking me particulars about a certain rifle and to make it “woman” friendly in some funky...
My dear friends. Why we build our own guns? Mostly, because our own Gunsmithing is extremely Fun and Satisfying. We like our guns custom build and be able to maintain or modify guns to improve the way they feel or enhance their performance. It is extremely satisfying. Receiving compliments and admirations is also the icing on the cake.
One thing that makes it more enjoyable is having a great workspace!
You don’t really need a lot of space to do Gunsmithing. A 6 to 8 foot long workbench is enough space to do pretty much anything you need. A heavy duty bench so that you can mount a vise to it and be able to pound on the bench without it...
Our hobby is not cheap. Not cheap by any means. As a gun enthusiast, I myself, juggle between the family and supporting my hobby - rifles! Hence, we, at Moriarti Armaments, had come up with the purchase rewards program to help our fellow gun enthusiasts not to brake their bank and continue with their amazing hobby.
As you all may know, major advertising outlets such as Google, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and others, completely prohibit paid advertising for firearm related products and are not 2nd Amendment friendly. The only way for retailers and manufacturers, such as Moriarti Armaments, to grow is to rely on customer feedback and...
In search of our desired AR-10 build and stay within a budget, people look online for deals. They read articles, wathc youtube videos, get confused and buy something that they are promised will work with their AR10 only it is not.
It's a common question that I always get - I bought this carbine AR-10 set from a reputable manufacturer (no names will be published out of respect), but I have a double feeding or not enough pressure to activate the bolt. Upon sending me the pictures of their stock "guts," sure enough, I find AR-15 carbine spring with AR-10 buffer, or AR-15 buffer and AR-10 spring, or just simply, AR-15 buffer and buffer spring....
Today’s topic of discussion is What Is The Difference between .223 Wylde and 5.56 NATO AR-15 Barrel.
First and for most, let’s get the terminology straight. .223 Wylde IS NOT your regular .223 Remington! I know, both sound very much similar but these are completely different animals. So let’s go into details.
5.56 NATO and .223 Remington
Though they share identical case dimension, they are slightly different and thus, are not the same cartridge.
.223 Remington is slightly smaller than your standard 5.56 NATO. As we can see from the picture above, the throat of the 5.56mm bullet is slightly longer than that of the .223 Rem....
Yes. Finally after so much anticipation, we have few barrels available in 24" Black Diamond.
The benefits of diamond fluting.
I am not the first to say that there are many benefits to the fluting of the barrel not counting the looks and appearance, of course.
Fluting dissipiates heat quicker
Adds and increases stiffness thus increases accuracy
Weight reduction of surface
Excellent for Precision Shooting
Diamond fluting offers all the benefits listed above in one complete package. Black diamond fluting - well, you also have the looks, scarcity of the product and all the benefits packaged in one rifle.
These barrels are not...
Don’t laugh. The most important one, 6.5 Grendel is designed to use on AR-15 platform (think of it as your next step after Russian military round, 7.62x39) and 6.5 Creedmoor is based on AR 308 weaponry, roughly.
So now, which one do you want? You probably want both but in the real world, it all depends on your preference and intended use. I often get a reply from clients stating that they want the most powerful. My question is most powerful for what. By virtue of the fact, 308 platform is much more powerful than your AR15 platform, but so as AR50 is more powerful than 308. We can continue in that direction quickly coming to the...
