INDUSTRY UPDATES

 

So what's new in the AR15 world...

So daggone much that I'm just doing another book about it.

That's right. "ARII" is getting pounded on and out right now.


[OBSERVATION]

BARRELS

 

I get a lot of questions about which barrels to buy and sometimes they are difficult to answer. Some people are brand loyal and those they are loyal to usually speaks well for the manufacturer, especially if the ones who are brand loyal have won some 40 national championships.

There are a lot of good barrel manufacturers, and there are also good examples from even the "budget" barrel makers. As I've said many a time, the idea is to get the most good barrels with the most barrels bought, and that is the difference in a truly good maker and one who is not. Consistent quality is the goal, so make sure it's also the goal of the maker.

I have had outstanding results with Krieger barrels. I've had oustanding results also with Schenider, PacNor, Obermeyer, and Badger (right). Here's the deal, though. Which barrel do I buy when there's a new project and I just don't want to take any chances, which means it's also, unlike the PacNor and Schneider experiences, there's no motivation for a barrel test along with it? Krieger.

CHAPTER ADDITION TO "THE COMPETITIVE AR15"

 

I had the opportunity to update "The Competitive AR15" and added a couple pages on John Holliger. John is a favored gunsmith who does wonders especially with the rear sights on Service Rifles. If you'd like to see it, download the file by clicking HERE or on the page image to the left (that's the Marlboro Light hand for folks from Parachute, Colorado). It is an Adobe Acrobat file, .pdf format, so get the free reader program before you attempt to download.

PRODUCTS & SERVICES

 

Here you'll find a few things I found worth looking into. I try to keep up with what's going on with AR15s and High Power shooting in general, so check often. Also, let me know if you come across something we can't live without!


RELOADING UPDATES PAGE

 

This has actually been here since the site went on line, but I think I hid it too well since not too many people have seen it. Nothing major, just a few thoughts on what changed since I did the book. The yellow box on the left hand column will take you there, or just click HERE.


LES TAM SLINGS

If you don't know about these you should. Les Tam makes the best Service Rifle sling on earth. No contest, no comparision. All Tam slings are made by Les hisself in Hawaii (which is convenient for Les since he lives there). He charges $55.00 for one and it's worth double that. Extra keepers available.

There will be more on Les and his slings elsewhere on this site shortly, but you can't do better than the best.

Contact LeslieTam@aol.com to get started


WHAT ELSE...

There's always something... See it here when I know about it, and if I don't know about it go on ahead and tell me. It will probably be for my own good...

I'm probably going to be posting a list of urls when I get enough of them of places to go see. I've heard some really good things about some new scope stands, for instance, and I'm checking into it. Same thing as always: if you come across something you think we'd all be interested in please let me know and I'll do my best to get it out and about.

Keep checking.


DOWNLOAD SOURCE PAGES

Download my most recent "Sources & Acknowledgements" file. It's a .pdf that can be printed out and stuck in the back of the book. A lot of addresses and phone numbers changed, and a few new were added.

 

Tell these folks where you saw all this!


DOWNLOAD ILLUSTRATION CORRECTION

Someone pointed out a possible confusion regarding an illustration in the book on relative amounts of wind drift different bullets (in theory) would have. The page is 277 comparing various .22s and .30s. Download it and print it out, or just read it over. It's in .pdf format so get Acrobat Reader to see it.
