Sharps Bros. film: “Be Proud”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yGF9S5eePM


Sharps Bros. founder John Sharps has always been a gun enthusiast, and in 2012 he decided to leverage his decades of manufacturing and product development experience to begin building a series of custom AR-15 lower receivers. Sharps Bros. has since evolved from a one-man business to a full-fledged firearm design and manufacturing organization, with products in three major categories: AR15, AR10 and Kalashnikov.


Sharps Bros. products include The Jack, featuring a skull design; Warthog, featuring a boar’s head design; and Hellbreaker, an iconic design inspired by the P-40 Warhawk.

Battle Arms Development recently announced their RACK Ambidextrous Charging Handle.  Here is the info on what to expect:

BATTLEARMS™ RACK Ambidextrous Charging Handle Founders Edition and Early Adopter Specials

Truly Original: The revolutionary new mechanism is unlike any other charging handle on the market. We are pleased to receive U.S. Utility Patent No. 9964371, 9810494, 9587896.

No Weak Roll Pins:  Even the best-designed products fail at their weakest point and we have taken the infamous roll pins out of the equation. The RACK™ was designed with no roll pins.

Smooth Sliding Latch:  Not another pivoting mechanism to wear out the upper receiver notch, this patented latch system slides parallel with the receiver notch for slick and quick release and simultaneously minimizes wear.

Asymmetric Charging:  Purpose built with asymmetric use in mind, the RACK™ will handle left or right side pulls with ease. Regardless of your charging handle racking technique, the RACK™ will perform with consistent and positive assurance.

Monolithic Modular Handle:  Machined from one single piece of aluminum, the RACK™ handle was designed with strength in mind. It is also key to the sliding latch and the positive and balanced pull of the charging handle.

MADE IN THE USAThe RACK™ is designed and engineered in the United States.  It is precision CNC machined from billet 7075 T6 Aircraft Grade Aluminum in our brand-new manufacturing facility in Henderson, Nevada.  Coated in a hard anodize black finish.

Press Release: FN unveils new FN 15 models ahead of 2018 SHOT Show

The following is a Press Release from FN:

(McLean, VA – January 4, 2018) FN America, LLC announces the launch of new additions to the FN 15® series, including a pistol variant in two calibers and a new, full FDE carbine, in advance of the 2018 SHOT Show. The new FN 15s will be on display at the show for a first-hand look and on sale at dealers nationwide within the first part of the year.

The first new additions to the series are the FN 15 Pistols, chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO or .300 AAC Blackout . Their 10.5- or 12-inch, cold hammer-forged, chrome-lined barrels have a 1:7 twist, carbine- and pistol-length gas systems optimized to reach the highest level of performance out of each cartridge in terms of accuracy and reliability.


Each AR pistol variant has an M-LOK-equipped rail, fixed low-profile stainless-steel gas block, FN combat trigger weighing in between 4.5-7.75 lbs. and includes an SBX-K™ Pistol Stabilizing Brace that make these little carbine-caliber pistols a breeze to shoot.

The FN 15 Tactical Carbine that FN customers know and love is now available in full Flat Dark Earth (FDE). The enhanced MIL-SPEC lower receiver and legendary match-grade free floating, chrome-lined, cold hammer-forged barrel offer extreme durability and performance.

Maintaining the distinguishing features of the FN 15 Tactical series are the 3-prong flash hider found on the FN SCAR rifles that reduces flash, mid-length gas system and H1 buffer that decreases recoil, a B5 grip, buttstock and 12.5-inch P-LOK rail with M-LOK accessory mounting system.

To learn more about the new FN 15s or other FN products, please visit www.fnamerica.com, or visit the FN Booth (#13662) at the 2018 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, Jan. 23-26, 2018, at The Sands Expo and Convention Center.

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.
