9mm AR’s don’t have to be finicky. Build it right, from the start, and you’ve got nothing to worry about.
They’ve been called “legos for adults” and for good reason, the now ubiquitous AR15 is one of the easiest things to build you’ll come across in the firearms arena. Building, or more precisely assembling, a 16″ AR15 in the common 5.56 caliber and with all ‘mil-spec’ parts is relatively easy and fairly straight forward.
The Advanced Combat Trigger, or ACT, from ALG Defense is probably as far as you can take a mil-spec trigger and still be considered ‘mil-spec’.
Before we get into the details of mil-spec, and perhaps bore you to death, I’d place the ACT at the pinnacle of performance of ‘mil-spec’ triggers. There isn’t much more you could do to a ‘mil-spec’ trigger before it would no longer be ‘mil-spec’.
Over the past few months we’ve spent time with a .224 Valkyrie upper from Palmetto State Armory. This particular upper has one of the newer 1/6.5 twist 20″ barrels in it which is hoped to better stabilize the extremely fast .224 round at longer ranges.
At first blush the idea of an “accessory” being covered as an “Arm” might seem odd or even silly to some of you but we live in a world where common sense and logic doesn’t really apply to those who want to destroy our freedoms.
After weeks of testing and near daily use here on the farm the results are. We push through daily hand held use every night, mounted use on rifles and drop testing to bring you a second look at the Warrior X.
Has Remington finally cracked the Da Vinci code and brought us a factory M1911 that’s affordable, reliable, accurate, and a suppressor host? Our quest brings us to Remington’s modern take on a 100-year-old relic.
