450 Bushmaster Rifles: Based on popular demand, Moriarti Armaments is proud to present an addition to its AR-15 family, a 450 Bushmaster round. The uppers can attach to virtually any AR-15 lower receivers allowing for a new rifle cartridge to perform.

450 Bushmaster was originally introduced as a big bore hunting rifle, offering several inherent advantages to avid hunters. So let’s look at a little history.

The Thumper round, as it is affectionately known in the community, was created by Col. Jeff Cooper. notorious for his disdain for the .223 caliber AR-15 platforms, who envisioned a cartridge for big game that could handle shots...

6065 or 7075 - which aircraft-grade forged aluminum alloy is best for AR-15 lowers? Selecting a grade is one's task on finding a balance between performance and cost. 
A good place to start is by understanding similarities and differences between 6065 and 7075 aluminum alloy. 
The two alloys are very similar. They have the same agents such as magnesium, silicon, copper, iron, zinc, titanium, manganese, etc. Both are heat treatable. 
The real differences are found in the amount of each agent present. For example, the 6065 aluminum alloy contains less zinc than the 7075 alloy. Thus, the 6065 alloy provides better welding...

We here at Moriarti want only the best for our customers, our lowest BCG offering is a Mil-spec+, meaning it meets and exceeds all Mil-spec requirements. 
We can start with the bolt carrier - it is constructed of 8620 Steel and completed with a Nitrite finish. This is not a coating, but a treatment to the surface of the metal which extends life and wont flake off as it wears. It is a hard and slick surface for low friction and easy cleaning. 
Reliability Cuts on Bolt Carrier - During the operation of a direct impingement gas system, hot gas is taken directly from the gas port and moved into the action of the AR-15. This gas contains carbon...

The Modern AR-15. 
This is always a Controversial topic - what barrel with what twist rate is the best to use. The answer is pretty simple - depending what you will be using your rifle for.

1-in-9 Inches
1-in-9 is a great compromise twist rate—not too fast to cause problems with the 55-grain Bullets, but fast enough to stabilize all but the heaviest bullets under most circumstances. This twist will stabilize most traditional bullets up to 75-grains, and monolithics up to 70-grains—but they do so right at the edge of the envelope so not all rifles will do it. 
1-in-8 Inches
For a 16-inch general-use carbine, the 1-in-8 twist is about as...

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...
