Amazing Strike Industries AR 15 parts? In 1956, designer Eugene Stoner presented his Armalite Model 10 design to the United States military as a possible replacement for the famous M1 Garand. Eugene Stoner was well known for being quite the designer and engineer, but will forever be known for his designs that led to the infamous AR 15. The United States Army was, at the time, searching for a new service rifle that could be chambered in 7.62 NATO which had been adopted only two years earlier. While Stoner’s AR 10 design was not eventually adopted, it did not go unnoticed and was considered by some other nations, such as Spain, and some commercial variants were eventually made. Instead of the AR 10 design, the United States military instead went with the Springfield M14. At the time, they felt this rifle was superior for many reasons, such as reliability, a proven track record on the design, and build quality. Unfortunately, this gun was heavy and many argued that more and more modern firefight engagements were being fought much closer than the 600 or more yards that the 7.62 NATO was originally intended for.
A front grip is also another great accessory that is usually attached to the handguard. When shooting an AR-15, most people will typically hold the handguard under the bottom. Adding a front grip will help you gain a more comfortable hold on the gun, as well as help in recoil reduction. Whether it is a vertical fore grip, angled fore grip, or anything in between, a front grip can help you have a safe and reliable place to put your hand. Handguards also give you a place to attach accessories wherever you want them and what feels most comfortable to you and your style of shooting. Say for instance you attach a bipod for a stable rest. With many of the different mounting systems available, you can adjust and attach the bipod in the exact spot on the handguard that feels best for you. The same can be said with just about any attachment, including rifle slings.
Cut rifled barrels have long been considered the standard for the AR 15. It is by far the most popular and still to this day one of the most cost-effective ways to create barrels. A cut rifled barrel is created just like the name says: a barrel blank is inserted into a rifling machine, which resembles a large lathe. The machine then pushes a single cutter attached to a long rod through the rough rifle bore, carving out each groove of the rifling. This entire process can be very time consuming, but given the right technique and equipment, produces the most accurate AR 15 barrels that you can find. Find additional info on AR 15 Parts.
10.5” 5.56 NATO Pistol Upper Assembly: If you’re still liking the idea of an AR pistol build but don’t like the idea of a super short 7.5” barrel, an obvious solution is the 10.5” 5.56 NATO Pistol Upper Assembly. This is a length where, ballistically, with the right ammo, it could make for a very mean little defensive AR pistol. You’re only adding 3” to the gun, but that length addition, in our opinion, bumps it out of ‘range toy’ category and into an area where you could seriously consider this as a trunk or behind-the-nightstand pistol, depending on your needs. Our 10.5” 5.56 NATO Pistol Upper Assembly has the same features as the 7.5″ 5.56 NATO Pistol Upper Assembly, and paired with one of our bolts, you have a very handy, reliable and practical AR 15 pistol. One caveat: Even at 10.5”, these upper assemblies are still loud. As long as you know what to expect going in…carry on.
The other type of handguards that are the most popular are free-float handguard options. Almost all of these are made out of aluminum instead of polymer. They generally also cost a little more, but they do offer a big advantage over drop-in handguards in that they do not contact the forward portion of the barrel, which can be a major benefit to the rifle’s accuracy. Free-float handguards usually come in one solid piece that will slide around the barrel and are generally attached with some sort of barrel nut. These types of handguards are usually equipped with different types of mounting systems and accessories, as well as being available in different sizes, lengths, and styles. Free float handguards will also sometimes require more effort and time to install, and some will even require the use of special tools or equipment as well. Free float handguards are quickly becoming some of the most popular handguards on in the market today.
