CAT Outdoors AR-15/M4 BCG Cleaning Tool

I’ve always wanted a way to get down inside the recesses of an AR-15 bolt carrier and clean it will.  Trying to use gun patches or twisted bits of rag didn’t instill me with confidence. Then I discovered the CAT Outdoors AR-15 BCG Cleaning Tool. The Carrier Cleaner/Scraper allows you to get down inside the […]

Dewey L-16 AR-15 Chamber Cleaning Kit

Everyone seems to have their own preferences as to gun cleaning standards and methods.  I know people who do nothing more than run an oiled patch down the barrel after each shooting session.  I also know people who clean their guns to surgical standards.  I’m somewhere in the middle. I enjoy cleaning my guns when I […]

Polymer 80% Lower Reality

Everyone by now has heard about 80 percent AR lower receivers.  And more than one company offers 80% lowers made from polymer instead of aluminum.

Diamondhead Flip-Up Sights

Twice now I’ve arrived at the range only to discover that the batteries in my Eotech 517 were dead. The second time it happened, my Army Infantry Fire Team Leader son was with me and he sad, “Ya know, Dad, you really need a set of backup sights.” My rifle is a Windham Weaponry SRC […]

AR-15 Ambidextrous Safety

I decided to add an ambidextrous safety to my Windham Weaponry AR-15.  While handling a friend’s rifle who has an ambidextrous safety installed, I found it much easier and more natural to move the safety from Fire to Safe using my index (trigger) finger than my thumb. I chose the Battle Arms Development BADD-ASS Ambidextrous […]

Bravo Company BCMGunfighter Charging Handle

NOTE: This item was purchased for this review. This is the first of several small mods I want to do on my AR-15 to make it easier to use for a casual shooter like me. I find the ergonomics of the stock AR-15 charging handle to be lousy.  Back when the AR-15 was introduced, the […]

Review: Brownell’s How To Build an AR-15 DVD

I’ve owned Ar-15 rifles for a few years, but I recently decided to learn how to build an AR-15. I feel like it is more cost-effective to build from scratch than to buy and assembled rifle and then swap out parts to get exactly the configuration I want. I’ve bought  a couple of books and […]
