I was going to reference that video in this comment, but … Read moreMisc Chatter, Muzzle breaks on SBRs, AR Mags, Height over bore, MGI Hydra

When I first read this, it was like the same gut punch when I learned Kevin had passed. I am glad his brother and family have given his friends and fans a chance to have something to remember Kevin by, Something tangible, But.

I saw again recently someone suggesting that a first time AR15 buyer build their own AR15 so that they would be better familiar with the parts and operation. I think a person could learn the parts and operation of a firearm just fine without building one. By all means build a custom AR if … Read moreBuild verses buy your first AR?
