BLACK RIFLE PROJECT - We have just ordered all of the bit, pieces, and parts necessary to build our bare lowers. We will walk you through our parts selection when they arrive this week or next and we can take pictures of the parts. If everything arrives this week we'll build both lowers this weekend.

The Black Rifle Project is something we're doing to chronicle the build of a pair of AR-15 rifles of the type and quality you'd wait for EDC (where you can do these things) or if the world as we knew it ended and you needed a personal rifle which was above all reliable, stout, accurate, and fast handling. A rifle any member of your family could depend their life on. It must be handy, light to carry, of a reliable and readily available cartridge, and above all obtainable for everyone.

 

Why? Since the expiration of the Assault Weapons Ban (there is no such thing as an assault weapon) in 2004 there have been a plethora of AR-15 variants on the market currently priced from $425 to upwards of $3000 and beyond without optics! What to buy? Ours will be a no compromise battle tested combination of the best parts on the market coming in well below $2000. Our price target with appropriate sight is $2000. More than that and it's not practical for the average person, and even at that it's a stretch for the vast majority of us. Still, there is a price to pay for reliability and quality, so keep watch as we stretch those boundaries and target our $2000 per rifle build.

 


When looking at this price keep in mind that by the time you buy a quality handgun such as a Glock or Smith and Wesson M&P, by the time you buy the weapon, sights, at least six magazines, holster, and mag pouch you're approaching or exceeding $1000. This makes a battle tested top quality AR-15 WITH an appropriate optic for under $2000 almost seem like a bargain.

 


There is no doubt, firearms, ammunition, training, permit fees, all adds up to a sizeable investment. Still, you could equip your entire family with a sidearm, black rifle, training, and more for less than the cost of say.. remodelling the master bath. When someone or events put you and your families lives at risk.. which would you rather have?
