AERO AC-15 Aero Precision

 

Typically budget AR15’s aren’t always the “deal” they appear to be. Typical sub-par rear sights, generic mags and economy barrels. That is not the case with Aero Precision’s low cost entry the Aero AC-15. The rifle features a Magpul MBus rear sight, Magpul 20 round PMAG and Aero’s own  16″ 1:7 Chrome Moly barrel. In my opinion this is a great entry level rifle and a solid foundation to build from. Visit Aero Precision for current pricing.

ASA AR-15 M4 SIDE CHARGER UPPER RECEIVER

ASA AR-15 M4 SIDE CHARGER UPPER RECEIVER

American Spirit Arms may not have produced the first side charging AR-15 but they certainly are the first to bring the design to main stream shooters.  I have been pretty anxious to build an upper based around the  ASA AR-15 M4 SIDE CHARGER UPPER RECEIVER for a few reasons. First off I have enough AR-15 rifles that it’s difficult to be creative and not redundant. Additionally I am left handed and the ASA AR-15 M4 SIDE CHARGER UPPER RECEIVER undoubtedly favors southpaws like myself. That said there is actually a more significant reason. I was born with birth defects that affect my hands, particularly my right hand. While the Mil-spec AR-15 is ambidextrous the forward position of the charging handle on the ASA AR-15 M4 SIDE CHARGER UPPER RECEIVER is much more comfortable for me. If you cant tell already this upper being turned into a rifle is a pretty exciting prospect. I purchased my ASA AR-15 M4 SIDE CHARGER UPPER RECEIVER and special bolt carrier from Brownells  of course. While the entire project has not been thought through a project will be forth coming. Stay tuned.

BEST LUBRICANT for an AR15 – What’s the best lubricant, oil or grease for an AR15? That’s one of the questions that I am frequently asked on one of my other sites. While I cant scientifically state what is best I can tell you what works for me from the sub zero temperatures of northern Vermont to the 100 degree plus days in my home state.

AR 15 OIL

MOBIL 1 Synthetic Motor Oil

MOBIL 1 Synthetic Motor Oil

I like to keep lubing my AR15’s simple. You the reader will be shocked to learn my favorite oil for an AR15 is MOBIL 1 SYNTHETIC MOTOR OIL. The same that is used in my Toyota Tundra. One quart is about $8 and last a long time. I keep the BOLT CARRIER lubricated with MOBIL 1.

Now if the MOBIL 1 is just too easy and not exotic or expensive enough for your AR15 there are other suitable alternatives such as Militec 1, Mil-Comm and Froglube. They all work well. Here’s the thing though READ THE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USE. Some of these lubricants require the parts to be degreased and heated to a certain temperature before application.

AR 15 GREASE

BEST LUBRICANT for an AR15 is mobil 28 synthetic aviation grease

Mobil Grease 28 Synthetic Aviation Grease

Once again it’s a Mobil product. This time it’s MOBIL 28 Synthetic Aviation Grease about $13 for a 13.7 oz tube. This is the same red grease supplied with Geissele triggers. It’s important to note that Geissele used to provide a superior grease in the Mobil FM 102. Unfortunately Mobil discontinued the FM 102. The named replacement is Mobil FM 222  which is off white in color and cost twice as much as the FM 102.

Anyhow the same brands listed in the oil section above offer very good grease.

I like to use grease on the trigger, bolt lugs, safety and takedown/pivot pins.

Update 03/25-2016 – The MOBIL 28 Synthetic Aviation Grease is now nearly $23 for the 13.7 oz tube from industrial supply distributors. That’s a lot of money but keep in mind that’s also a lot of grease. Fortunately a few entrepreneurs are making lesser quantities available in custom packaging delivered for less than $9.

SENDRA PREBAN AR15 LOWER

On my behalf a friend recently acquired a Sendra preban stripped AR15 lower. Not much information available on the Sendra hardware other than comments of the anodizing appearing to be purple. True to the comments mine started off purple. My friend who also happens to work in the industry and is an AR15 guy himself would not ship the Sendra as it sat. In a very generous gesture my friend decided to dress up the Sendra.

SENDRA PREBAN AR15 LOWER

First off he had the stripped lower coated in GunKote matte black. He then installed a Geissele G2S Trigger, BAD ASS CASS, KNS Anti Rotation Pins, Magpul Enhanced Trigger Guard, Magpul MOE+ Grip, Milspec Buffer Tube, H Buffer, Noveske End Plate and a VLTOR IMOD.

This lowered turned out so well I have not yet decided what project to apply it to. Once I have the lower in hand I will post quality images.
