The .50 Beowulf is a rifle big-bore cartridge developed by Alexander Arms for use in a modified AR-15 rifle. Why does it belong in your AR collection?

First and foremost, it is based on your standard AR-15 platform. The .50 Beowulf is compatible with standard AR-15 upper and lower receivers, handguards, buffer systems and small parts. The only difference is the barrel and your BCG, not counting the magazine, which it takes 6.5 Grendel Type II Bolt Face. It is entirely possible to slap a complete .50 Beowulf upper receiver onto a standard AR-15 lower receiver and maintain total functionality. A standard AR-15 buffer and buffer...

For decades, a debate has raged in the firearms community, a debate about AR-15 versus the AK-47. While there seems to be no end in sight, the AK-47s little sister, AK-74, designed by Russians in the late 70s to counter AR 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge, actually is the one that performs very similar, ballistic-wise, to an AR-15, and thus is much closer to run a comparison.
The AK-47 shoots the World War II-era 7.62x39mm that the Russians designed in 1943. The AK-74 shoots the 5.45x39mm cartridge that performs very similar to the 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge. So now, let’s take a look at the AR-15 versus AK-74 from a practical point of view.

With the ever growing demand of Glock compatible pistol ARs such as9mm, 45 ACP, 10mm and 40 S&W, the question always arises on what is the difference between Last Round Bolt Hold Open LRBHO system vs. your standard AR build. So I thought, this would be a good place to start – what are the benefits of Last Round Bolt Hold Open.

LRBHO is a highly desirable feature on your blow back action rifles. Mainly it allows for a faster reload. This is when the last round is fired, the bolt will stay open, hence the term, Last Round Bolt Hold Open. Then the mag can be removed and a new one is inserted. Then a Button can be pushed to allow the...

This is for an AR-15 lover. What if your AR-15 could shoot in semi-automatic with sub-MOA accuracy to 1,000 yards and beyond? In 2018, you can! But how? There are two calibers to consider.

The 6.5 Grendel and the .224 Valkyrie were designed to extend the range of the AR-15 beyond 1,000 yards. They each take a very different approach. The Grendel uses a heavier, longer, and fatter bullet that maintains supersonic flight past 1,200 yards. The Valkyrie uses a .224” diameter bullet that is longer and heavier than the .223 and stays supersonic past 1,300 yards.

.224 Valkyrie is the hot new caliber everyone is talking about. In...
