This rifle has been Cerakoted to compliment the ruberized Hogue furniture while increasing durability.  The 16 inch Faxon Firearms barrel combined with the Curse muzzle break and a mid length gas tube make this rifle a dream to shoot with virtually no muzzle rise or kick.  WMD Guns Nib-X bolt carrier mates up perfectly with the quality barrel while reducing the need to clean and lubricate the carrier which further improves reliability.  The lower receiver was modified to allow installation of the PDQ Ambidextrous bolt catch/release.  This simple modification works extremely well and puts the release within index finger range for right handed shooters.  The ambidextrous mag release from Knights Armarment was chosen due to the exceptional quality and reliability of KAC products.  Rubberized Hogue furniture combines the ability to easily accessorize and has several built in QD sling points built in.  A BCM endplate with a QD socket in the middle provides yet another mounting point.

This is a new build with the exception of the Magpul MBUS flip ups, those I had laying around.

More Details:

Lower receiver: Aero Precision AR15 lower receiver, Gen 2 with upper tension screw. APAR501101

Our AR15 Gen 2 Stripped Lower Receiver is the perfect base for your custom AR15 build. Machined to mil-spec dimensions, our lowers work with standard AR15 components and ensure the highest quality with a correct component interface.

Gen 2 Improvements

  • Upper Tension Screw - Allows users to fine tune the fit of the upper and lower receiver through the use of a nylon tipped tensioning set screw inserted in the grip tang of the lower receiver. This provides a tight fit with any standard AR15 upper receiver.
  • Increased Magwell Flare - Allows for easier insertion of magazines and provides a sleeker look.

Includes:

  • Stripped AR15 Lower Receiver, Gen 2
  • Nylon tipped tensioning set screw

Trigger: ALG Defense QMS. 
Description: The ALG Defense Quality Mil-Spec (QMS) Trigger is designed for those shooters where tradition, value and regulatory concerns are of primary importance. The pull of the QMS is very similar to a standard mil-spec trigger, however the majority of the associated grittiness of the stock trigger pull has been removed while the well known reliability of a stock trigger remains. The pull weight is not lower than the M4/M16 minimum weight specification of 5.5lbs.

1. Performance Advantages for the Shooter
• The ALG Defense QMS trigger pull is smoother than a stock trigger. This is accomplished by honing the sear surfaces smooth while not removing metal below the valleys of the stock surface finish.
• Sear geometry has not been changed from standard so the high reliability that the stock trigger is known for is unchanged.
• Trigger and hammer are made from true 8620 alloy steel military specification castings, correctly carburized, quenched and tempered for high surface hardness.
• Disconnector is 1070 High Carbon steel properly Austempered into the spring range of hardness
• Springs are corrosion resistant and meet military specifications.
• A full force hammer spring is used for positive ignition of all type of ammunition.
• Trigger and hammer pins are improved over stock mild steel by using 4140 Chrome-Moly steel that has been quenched and tempered. Pins are centerless ground to a fine finish and a diameter 0.001” larger than stock to reduce play in the trigger assembly while retaining a slip fit into the weapon lower receiver.
• Pull weight is above the U.S. Military minimum pull weight of 5.5lbs but does not reach near the upper limit of 9.5lbs. Generally, the pull weight is about 6.5lbs.

2. Advantages for the Armorer
• The ALG Defense QMS trigger is an enhanced standard trigger so maintenance and installation procedures are unchanged.
• There is spare parts commonality between the QMS and stock triggers
• Trigger assembly parts may be interchanged between triggers, there are no matched sets.
• Since it is a trigger meeting the U.S. Military trigger specifications for the M4 Carbine, the ALG Defense QMS can be substituted for lower performing stock triggers while still staying in compliance with Unit or Departmental requirements.

Bolt catch/release: PDQ ambi bolt catch. PDQ-ABR-BL

PDQ Ambi-Bolt Release™
The new PDQ Ambi-bolt release™ puts the operator in control of the firing grip at all times. The trigger finger moves from trigger to mag release to bolt release smoothly without moving the weapon from the shoulder. That is why it is call PDQ (pretty dam quick). When seconds count and your life and others are depending on you. Count on PDQ The PDQ Ambi-Bolt Release™ Release is made in AMERICA, uses Military grade steel, hardened and Mil Spec 8526 Class 3 type 2 coated to last a life time of operational conditions.

Reloading with PDQ Ambi-Bolt Release™
When performing an emergency reload a shooter will typically use his left hand to insert a fresh magazine, press the bolt release, and return hand to shooting position. When using the new PDQ the shooter can now move from mag insertion directly back to shooting position. The trigger finger releases the bolt while the left hand returns to the shooting position.

Clearing a Double Feed with PDQ Ambi-Bolt Release™
While an advantage in firearms reloads, the PDQ advantage when clearing a double jam on the weapon is amazing. When a rifle malfunctions due to a double feed, the shooter will typically move the left hand to the bolt stop release and the right hand is now needed to activate the charging handle. This action is neither smooth or quick. Using the PDQ will allow the shooter to clear most double feed jams without ever removing his hand from the shooting grip. This action is not only faster but also more familiar. Whether in a competition or in a fight for your life the PDQ adds speed and reliability.
