Main Topic:

Hard anodizing is typically applied to heavy wear industrial parts intended for use in aggressive or highly corrosive applications. These coatings are typically far thicker and harder than decorative ones, and usually lend the parts a durability approaching that of hard faced or case hardened steel.

Hardcoated items usually have a dark gray to a black finish. This can vary depending on the aluminum alloy.

One of the main purposes of hard anodizing is to make the aluminum more resistant to corrosion. The thicker oxidized layer protects the finished part from being exposed to moisture, oxygen, and other factors. Sealed items are even more corrosion resistant.

The outer coating is also extremely hard, typically much harder than the original metal. In many cases, a thick hard anodized coating can be as hard as tool steel.

The oxide layer is part of the metal, it won't peel off and the surface finish will increase.

Hard anodized metals are usually very well insulated they don't conduct heat or electricity well.

This is especially useful for applications that require the part be used at high temperatures.

From AR15.com

Forged is typically a piece of material that is smashed into a shape while it is red hot (when referring to a shaped object for rough or final product). The grain structure of the metal material will follow the shape of the unit being produced. (ETA: forged material can also have no particular shape to make forged blank material to be machined into smaller pieces but retaining the strength of the initial forge)

Billet is a more general term used to describe a piece machined from a chunk of material/metal.

The original piece is most likely some sort of casting or drawn out, formed piece of metal.

In simple terms forged is probably going to be stronger.

Billet strength is dependent on the original slug of metal it was machined from.

Billet uppers or lowers can be more pleasing to the eye however due to more machining operations to achieve the final product. A forged or cast piece will usually be a rough resemblance of the final product and some areas may not need a finished surfaced machining/milling.

To add to the confusion you can have a piece that is forged and billet at the same time if the parent material stock was forged.

On another note: Take for instance a crank shaft for an engine that is forged into it's final shape then machined. The shaped forged crankshaft would be stronger than a crank that was machined from a forged piece of billet material due to the grain structure following the shape of the forging.

Feedback:

Ryan H: I just had a quick question. Getting ready to do my first build and wondered what your opinion is on the Reliabolt from SRC. From what little I have seen/heard it seems like a nice option, however I have seen a couple of YouTube videos saying they were junk and have broken. I don't know many AR guys so I thought it would be a good way to pick several brains at once. Thanks and love the show.

Keith S: In the event of an EMP, first people won't know what happened... but if your watch is out along with the power, laptops, cars, etc... you can guess what happened fairly quickly.

You'll need info on the area you've traveled to for business, I imagine Reed on a trip, business suit, briefcase, etc. First thing I'd do is secure shoes and any clothing needed for the long haul home (rain gear). (before you go on the trip know where sporting good stores are in your area, you won't be able to google them afterwards)

Second, hit the grocery store and stock up on something like Ramen Noodles, lightweight and easy to carry (wise to know where they are in your travel area as well).  Third, you talk about trying to trade for a car? ever car on the highway died in place and no one is clearing the roads... get a bicycle, you can always carry it around blockages etc.

A few years ago here in the PNW, we lost power for a week... some areas for longer. Gas stations that had power to pump gas had lines backed up for miles..stores weren't being resupplied and shelves were bare. My take from that experience was, I was prepared enough to get by for a week so I didn't need to go out and get stuff... but after a week, it was mostly gone and too late to go get and I realized that in the event of something really major happening that you needed to react first and fast or else it would be too late. So get your boots, raincoat, bike and some food to get you going and go quickly.

Love the podcast, it's like being part of a conversation of good friends that I would love to join in the discussion... but talking back to my car stereo never gets a response from you guys ha ha.

As for Reed's obsession with iron sights, I was in the Corps a few years before he was.. and I totally get it... as he ages, he'll want optics so he can focus better... it's just a matter of time.

Keep up the good work and I hope you all are enjoying making the podcast as I am enjoying listening to them.

Feedback:

Zephyr R: Just started listening. Heard three so far. Always riding the old guy is getting old. It was funny at first, but you do it every show. Show some more respect for the old guy and his iron sights etc.

Tony S: I've been listening to the podcast for a few months now but haven't seen a new one in over a couple of weeks. Hope all is well.  Looking forward to hearing  from you guys soon.

Nathan J: I recently finished building a 6.5 Grendel and am now fine tuning some of the parts. I have a 24" barrel and installed an SLR Rifleworks adjustable gas block to help tune the gun to the specific loads to prevent over gassing and to create a better shooting experience (reduced recoil, etc.).

Question:

I have always been interested in the JP Enterprises Silent Captured Spring because I hate the twang of the standard buffer spring as well as other benefits it provides (smoother action, reduced recoil, etc). Based on my current setup JP Enterprises recommends that I purchase the H2 version for my rifle, but I am wondering how much of a difference this spring will make (especially considering the price) when used in conjunction with the adjustable gas block. There are obviously some benefits that it still provides such as a smoother action, but the adjustable gas block should help resolve any bolt bounce due to over gassing. I know that my question is subjective, but in your opinion is the smoother action and twang elimination worth the $200, or should I focus my funds and energy elsewhere?

Martin S: I am actually starting my first build. I have a DDV7 and a Midwest Industries Pistol, but 556. I bought my barrel for the build from Ballistic Advantage (TY JD.) It's an 8.3" Premium 300 BLK. I am applying for the SBR. My question is about handguard. Two questions. I am thinking of hiding much of the muzzle device in the handguard. Probably a cone type linear comp). Do you see a real downside to having a 8 or 10 inch handguard on an 8.3 inch barrel?

Second question--I am dabbling with the idea of getting a suppressor. Should I go with a wider hand guard so the suppressor could go in that handguard? I love the Midwest, thin hand guard. 1.5'OD. Lovely to hold (and iron sights mount great). They make a bigger one to accommodate suppressors. Just looking for second opinions. Thanks!!

Hey, I'm Aaron, a host on the Off Road Podcast for the past year. I was wondering if I could come on your show to talk AR15s, lowers, & iron sights.  I recently built my 1st AR15 followed up quickly by a 2nd. Both are very unique (see attached).

Also, our most recent episode was about firearms and rigs and general gun safety. It would be the episode I would mention. I've been around firearms my whole life. I also share many of the same views you guys do about ARs, and other things. I'd like to also talk about an upcoming AR build (SBR) I am planning. I've got some newb questions to ask about optics and filing for an SBR with the Govt., something I don't think I heard covered in your latest episode about SBRs.

I've been listening to your podcast for quite a while know and have been listening to other podcasts on the FRN for the past 3 years. I think I could make a great addition to your podcast for an episode.

Thanks for your consideration.

Short-barreled rifle (SBR) is a legal designation in the United States, referring to a shoulder-fired, rifled firearm, made from a rifle, with a barrel length of less than 16 in (41 cm) or overall length of less than 26 in (66 cm). In the United States, an SBR is an item regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) as a Title II weapon. In the absence of local laws prohibiting ownership, American civilians may own an SBR provided it is registered with the BATFE, and a $200 tax is paid prior to taking possession of or creating the firearm.

The regulation of short-barreled rifles was the result of the National Firearms Act of 1934 which also imposed restrictions on short barreled shotguns, silencers and machine guns.

When an individual wishes to build a short-barreled rifle, he or she must beforehand submit a completed BATFE Form 1
 

Feed Back -

DW Taylor - Since Reed is such a fanatic on Iron Sights, I had to throw him a bone!  I'm building a black rifle chambered for the 6.5 Grendel. This will be used with a magnified optic, but I also want backup iron sights. 20 inch barrel, low profile gas block, rifle length. I want to put a free floating handguard on it, probably either Brigand Arms carbon fiber or similar style.

I'm wondering how the accuracy of iron sights on a free floating handguard is compared to sights mounted directly to the barrel.

Also, what buffer weight should be used with this? I have a PSA Magpul MOE mil-spec lower build kit that I'm using, but should I use a heavier buffer? Should the buffer spring be changed as well? What's the downside of using mil spec buffers with a heavier round?

Thanks again for a very informative and enjoyable show.  I'm still working on my lowers collection, but do I really need 83?  So far I am only at 18% of that target.

Michael M. - Show 197 Barrel Temp, Listening to the show a comment was made that after firing 300+ rounds in three minutes that the modified barrel temp was 207 degrees and that a conventional barrel would be 1500 degrees kelvin. 207 kelvin is about 100 degrees below zero (-100 F). Just wondering if you were implying 207 Celsius (500 ish kelvin). Just curious as even reducing the temp by half is impressive.

David L. - Evening Gentlemen, when ya'll were reviewing Shot Show and speaking of a target viewing system not using a spotting scope.
I think Anthony mentioned it. Also saying that a techie kind of guy could make one himself.

Remember that? Could you point me in the right direction to do something like that? I don't like spotting scopes and find it hard to spot 5.56 holes 300 yds or further downrange.

Thanks Guys. Enjoy the Podcast and I am learning, not to my Gunsmith Son's level yet, but ya'll are my tutors and bringing my knowledge level up behind his back.

Tyler - Looking at building an AR for my older brother, he wants something other than 5.56 but still something similar and easy to find. Thinking a 7.62x39 due to cheap ammo and it's an all around decent cartridge. Besides prebuilt ones that are ridiculously expensive, do you have any build suggestions? I'm hoping to stay with a plane Jane lower that can take any normal AR upper so if I wanna get him a present in the future I can build him an upper. Anyways like I said, I've heard there's some reliability issues in feeding and seen some forums where the guys all ground down their feed ramps and bored out a slightly larger gas port and they worked fine.  Any advice helps

Tyler Dice PSA barrels are made by FN. But are PSA barrels made to PSA spec, or FN spec?
