AR-15 Goodness

Posted in Uncategorized on April 29, 2006 by recoiltherapy

AR-15’s (aka EBR’s…Evil Black Rifles) should begin the first round of treatment in any recoil therapy regimen. If the subject doesn’t immediately break into their best imitation of a Calvin & Hobbes-esque maniacal grin, more intense treatment will be needed. For most of us, running through 5 or 6 soothing 30 round mags of 5.56mm on a Saturday afternoon will erase any memory of the shit sandwiches that were served at the office all week.

Here is my first build…it’s a 16″ Bushmaster Dissipator Upper on a DoubleStar lower. The stock is a ACE ARFX. Props to MidwayUSA who had them for around $55. The Bushie upper is a post-ban with a pressed on AK style break. It’s really reduces muzzle flip, but is a bitch if your on the next bench beside it.

Total price for the build was ~$575, much more palatable than the >$800 that a factory assembled rifle runs. These guns can be a little pricey when you have 2.3 crumb munchers, a mortgage or two and are trying to keep the SUV filled up with Middle-East Meth. Building one (assembling really, only minimal tools and talent are needed) is really the way to go. Check out AR15.com for way more info than you will ever need
