Fifteen Ridiculous Products for Gun Owners on Amazon

Amazon truly has just about everything from A to Z.  Granted, they do not possess a FFL (that we are aware of), but that does not stop them from selling gun-related items.  On a journey to find all things obscurely gun related, Amazon was the obvious choice due to sheer variety.  Here are Fifteen Ridiculous Products for Gun Owners that were found to be either ridiculously good or ridiculously bad, we are not sure, nor will we judge anyone who decides to include one of these items into their daily lives.

Press Release: Phoenix Weaponry’s 45-70 Auto

The following is a Press Release from Phoenix Weaponry:
Phoenix Weaponry Logo

Phoenix Weaponry of Longmont Colorado is pleased to announce the launch of their .45-70 auto rifle platform.  That’s right, .45-70!  The classic round born in 1873 through the Springfield Armory and labeled “Government” and designed specifically for the Springfield Model 1893, or “Trapdoor Springfield”.  Phoenix Weaponry blown the lid off the marketplace with a unique twist to this classic cartridge as they have rebated the rim so that it can be adapted to a standard .308 bolt head and fired through a high pressure AR platform with shocking, sub MOA results, and a boosted performance curve.

45-70-auto

The standard rifle bears a 18” custom profiled Douglas barrel utilizing a 1:14 twist with 8 grooves.  Mated with a Phoenix Weaponry billet upper and lower, along with custom trigger and muzzle brake, this piece weighs in at just over 9 lbs.  Master gunsmiths have toiled to produce one of the most exciting rifle evolutions seen in the MSR industry since Stoner fielded the SP1, with the added benefit of delivering tremendous down rage punishment to anything that stands in its way.

Phoenix Weaponry 45-70

The beauty in the details is that this case, once rebated, can be reloaded easily using existing load information for the .45-70, based on Ruger No.1 loads, and the reloader can use standard .45-70 die sets with the exception of using a .308 shell holder.  Factory brass will be available shortly and available for purchase from Phoenix Weaponry.  Each rifle initially will be supplied with 50 pieces of brass to help the new user get started.

Immediate order slots are available now.  Rifle base price as advertised is $4,800 with a multitude of custom options that can be added to enhance your enjoyment of this weapon platform. Just call them and make your wish come true.

Primary Weapons Systems AR Build Breakdown

A lot of times I am asked about the parts that make up a rifle build, so I am revamping a series of “Build Breakdowns” that explain what parts were used to put a certain rifle together.  Each part or grouping of parts will be listed below the image and will be hyperlinked to the Rainier Arms website, or another site if not available on Rainier, where you can learn more about the parts or to make a purchase.

This build focuses on a Primary Weapons Systems Build that I recently put together.  The build started as a separate upper and lower receiver set that were mostly complete from the factory.
