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...

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

Decreases recoil

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...
