MAIN TOPIC:

A brief history of the AR-15

Direct Impingement Patent Issued in 1956

M14 - Adopted in 1957, issued 1959. Select fire but generally issued with an selector lock.  Intended to replace the M1 rifle, M2 carbine, BAR, and M3A1 (grease gun).

M15 - was the automatic rifle version of the M14.  Never went into production.

The Air Force never adopted the M14. The other branches did.

1954 - Armalite Division of the Fairchild Engine and Airplane Corporation was created.  George Sullivan, Pres. Charles Dorchester as plant manager, and Eugene Stoner as chief engineer.

1956 - Stoner began filing design patents for design features that were incorporated into the AR-10 and subsequent AR-15.

1957 - Stoner demonstrated AR-15 rifles at the Infantry School, Ft. Benning, GA. Days after the formal adoption of the M14. Ten rifles chambered in .222 Remington Special. Also at the demo were .224 Winchester lightweight military rifles.

MAIN TOPIC:

Mark Kexel Utilities mostly. The less I spend on water and electricity (both overrated), the more I have to spend on the rifle.

Stuart Keith Well, we know how J.D. does it......he simply only buys the receivers.....and saves money by not buying any other parts.....

Jeremy Rowland Nowhere. I saved, bought the part I wanted. Then saved some more, then bought the next piece. So I bought exactly what I was wanting. No need to cut corners and make something not exactly like you want.
Mike N Dominique Spigut
Barrel and trigger. Most of the expense should be on a sweet looking FF rail and cool stock. Save enough for a quality "battleworn" paint job as well. Many legit looking tier1 accessories are cloned by Chinese factories and can be added for maximum instagram appeal
Gregory Riley
Depends on the build and purpose. I've got two nice builds with good parts and well known dealers. The other has Frankenstein leftover parts and some cheaper sale items on it bc I was just throwing something together bc I felt like it.

Larry Cunningham I don't. If I have to save for what I want then I do it. Most of my rifles took a year or more to build. I got an ar 10 upper and lower for fathers day. I happened to get the buffer assembly from my lgs who had it laying in the back and wanted to get rid of it. I need a bolt and barrel now so maybe for Christmas I will get another piece.

Curtis Tutak I shop sales and collect parts over time. Also I’m not into expensive receivers. Aero’s on sale are perfect for my needs.

Craig Valentine Primary Arms. There sales are really hard to beat. As far as parts, I end up using a ALG QMS trigger and throwing in a JP Enterprises spring kit and make it feel almost like a one piece trigger.
Nathan D. Young
I don’t. Lol. Figure this rifle is going to last me a long time so I do it right the first time. My favorite rifles are my 2 builds (5.56 Aero Precision SPR and a 9MM QC10 SBR PCC).
Ric Ky
Just wait until a Black Friday, Labor Day, or Memorial Day sale to save money. Doesn't make sense to cheap out otherwise

Matter of Facts Podcast Buy excellent quality used parts. Don’t cheap out otherwise. Maybe save a few bucks on lower/upper. Barrel, BCG, trigger group will have a huge influence on the total package.

Alex Gavieres Cheap AR stuff usually works fine. But then, I'm one of those guys that's cool with cheap barrels. $50 BCA barrels are good to go.
There are great deals on optics. Picked up a 1-4x Bushnell for $72 shipped from Brownell's last year. Precision scope? The 6-24x Athlon Argos BTR FFP is pretty sweet...and a steal at $295!
Toby Cumbee
I only buy parts when major sales are happening. July 4th, Black Friday, veterans days etc. I also buy brands that are too expensive but do provide value.

John Farra I've bought cheaper hand guards and I do my own trigger work. 3.5-4 lb trigger with a mil spec and a new set of springs.

David Taylor I make a list of parts I want and watch the sales. Buy when I see a bargain. It takes a while to complete a build, but eventually I have a project for a rainy day. I haven’t tried many expensive triggers yet, so I’m sure that’s saving me thousands already💸

Seth Vogel Well since I still have the a2 pistol grip that came with my mil spec lpk for my Anderson lower, and topped off with psa complete upper and a buffer tube and stock I won I’d say the whole gun but my next one so far all I have is my aero precision lower and done plan on cutting corners gonna get what I want

John Farra I also buy my barrels from Mark Kexel and Bruce Finnegan. Saves money on ammo when you know they are going to shoot good as soon as you get them
Tim Crosnoe
Well, iron sights can go for sure! 😂 With presbyopia can't focus on it, so it does no good. Just gotta keep enough batteries for my red dots.
Joshua Whaley
bi pods handrails stocks. my stuff was affordable but i made it look nice only expensive stuff was the assembly barrel scope etc.

Mike Hart AR parts have become a very competitive market, try to find a sale... and i don't try to cheap at the same time I do not go expensive( my shooting habits don't justify it)
Tj Repka
Anywhere but the heart of the rifle parts...bcg, barrel, and trigger...never skimp on them if at all possible

Mike Braun For me it’s hand guards. They get out of hand fast. And for most of us they don’t contribute much to the accuracy
Iain Clark
I stop eating for about a month...

Stephen Mad On holiday sales Don’t compromise on parts quality

Mike Clark Im a buy once cry once , thats why i dont have much ...

Mike Quigley Only use 5 squares of single ply ass wipe instead of 10

Dom Lopano I won't go cheaper. I'll save for longer if I have to

Vernon Brooks Liquor. I find that the build is both cheaper and more reliable with less of it.
Johnny Chan
I try to save money on the minimum thing like roll pins, Springs, detent, etc. safety Selector

Bob Horn Ramen noodles for 2 solid months equals a respectable BCG.
Wade Loosbrock
Lowers, uppers,barrel. Of course I hit up the sales like Black Friday and holidays

Tom Sticks Wall Lowers. If you wait for sales they can be found pretty cheap
Tom Tipton
It’s a period of time buying stuff two or three parts at a time !!!!!! And not all at once !!!!

Jody Tippett By getting parts from prize tables at 3 gun matches 😎
Jim Wilkerson
On food mostly. Walk to work instead of buying gas.
Nate Free
Save on all that silly shit my wife wants.
Tony Contreras
I cut down my fishing and kayaking expenses.

Jim Southern Where my wife can't find it.

Billy Atwell The stock and handguard

Russell Olive It's hard to want to save anywhere when you're building one part at a time!!
Nathaneal Huley
Depends on the purpose of use. If building it for 500 yards or less... OPTICS... Never cut corners on iron sights... THEY’RE MANDATORY!

Rusty Jenkins I try to save money on non essential parts like barrels and BCGs...

Austin Hess I am patient and shop sales. I’ve also sold my left nut and a kidney

Robert Ross On buying the right part the first time around.
Mike Quigley
Save money, Ha that is Fake News sir

Marty Sanford I try to save my money BEFORE I start. LOL.

Michael Capri Iron Sights

Craig Bathurst Waiting for stuff to go on sale.

Ed Burke No where!

Jim Carlson On the ammo.

Fabian Cardenas You don’t

Micki Caprioli I try to use as much duct tape as possible

MAIN TOPIC: Truck Gun Feedback / Work and Firearms Discussion


Nate D - Hey guy's just got done listening to the truck gun show. Wow you covered a lot in it. I want to let you know what my truck/backpack gun it. I have a Kel-Tec sub 2000 9mm. I like the fact it has the 16in barrel and it can fold in half and fit in a backpack. The main upgrades I'm looking at doing on it is a red dot optic mount. I'm not sure wait way i want to go. Red lion has a cool one that has a lock ring and it will rotate. Or i was at my local gun store talking with them, they suggested maybe trying a 45-degree side angle mount for a red.. I'm not sure whether it can still fold in half. Let me know if you have any ideas. Love the show keep up all the hard work.
Thank you


Kevin - I like the idea of an AR platform that shares mags with your concealed pistol. But not a must. I think the ruger pc9 carbine could work as long as you are proficient in assembly of the two parts.

My personal truck gun is a pistol AR in 5.56 with a vortex spitfire prism style red dot.  I think a prism style optic eliminates the worry of battery function, however mine still has it for night use. I have magpul mbus flip up sights as back up as well. I use a magpul telescoping stock that I forget the model of. I like the pdw stocks but the cost hurts my wallet muscle too much so I still to what I’ve got.

Clark County Teacher - As a teacher in clark county...no truck gun for me except on weekends. 10.5 in barrel, holosun optic. And an otis cleaning kit from your show...if possible.

Mike - Love the show, thanks for the content! My “truck” gun is an AR pistol with a brace. It has a short 7.5in barrel and in hindsight a 10.5 would have been a better choice. I have it outfitted with an 800 lumen light, Vortex Strikefire, AFG and of course backup irons. I carry it in a non tactical looking covert pack form UTG usually strapped just behind the passenger seat in my F150. Also in the pack are several magazines, some 55gr and some 62gr. It is pretty easy to access from the driver's seat. It works well out to a couple hundred yards but after that it gets pretty difficult! I live in rural MT so my other truck gun is a M1a Scout/squad set up as a half ass DMR. Thanks again for the show!
Matt - I’m running a 8” Aero Precision 300 blk out upper on an Aero lower with a shockwave blade stabilizing brace, and Law Tactical folding adaptor. Topped off with a Holosun red dot, Troy fixed front sight and a flip up rear, and a TLR1 mounted at 12:00.

Here in Michigan this setup is legally a “pistol” so I can CC it loaded in a vehicle. If I were to take my SBR, the rifle and ammo would have to be separated. Plus, keeping it concealed in a bag, I can take it with me when I park and leave the car in unattended.

I chose the 300 blk out mainly due to the length restrictions in my state. For its intended purpose 300blk, I believe, is superior to 5.56/.223 in a sub 10.5” barrel. I don’t see myself engaging threats at the longer distances where 300blk would become ineffective. Plus I didn’t have one yet.

As for WML’s, IMO, they are very useful for PID of a threat in low light situations. I understand how they could give your position away to an attacker, but that is only if you leave it on constantly. The TLR1 doesn’t add much weight, and I would rather have it than not. The shake awake function on the holosun has worked well, just grabbing the bag from behind the seat is enough to activate it, and it extends the battery like to something like 50k hours. I will be replacing it annually just to be sure, like I do with my mini RDS on my carry pistol.

I love the show and have been a listener for a few years now. I purchased my first AR off the rack, but thanks to you two, I have built 3  more in the last year or so. Plus funding my girlfriend’s build which she picked all her own parts, none of which were pink, and then assembled it herself. All are sporting an optic in one form or another, but to make Reed proud all have quality irons too.

DR - I’ve got a c39v2 pistol with a folding brace. It fits in a medium size backpack, but doesn’t leave much room for anything else.

Otis Winners - Matt and Clark County Teacher

Work Question….

Conor - Hey guys, so I was listening to your truck gun episode and heard JD mention having a shotgun in his old office. I just started a new job and I looked at the employee handbook to see what their firearms policy is. It says that it is not allowed unless authorized by upper management. How would you approach this? How would you phrase it to ask for permission?
Love the show, thanks guys.

Feedback:

Alan G: Hello Gentleman, let me start by saying that you guys are AWESOME, I love the podcast and very happy to have found you. I have listened to at least 100 episodes to my wife's dismay. Since listening to you guys I have a new desire to collect ar15 lowers but not to buy backup iron sights(sorry Reed). I'm starting my first build and have a question. I bought a 20 inch barrel (223 wylde) rifle length gas tube does that mean I need a rifle length buffer tube/stock for it to work properly? or I can get away with carbine length stocks? Also, which would you recommend JP enterprises BCG, or the Sharps? I plan on buying the JP silent Capture Buffer tube as I have heard great things about it. Thanks in advance for your help and keep up the great work.

Wayne F: Have been a listener for a while and really enjoy the podcast. As far as topics I'd like to hear a retro themed episode. I know its a niche even in the AR community but it is obviously growing given that Brownells has released its own line of rifles and has reportedly a coming line of LPKs in “Colt Grey." I would imagine an interview with John Thomas of Retro Arms Works could take up more than a single episode. Anyway look forward to each episode.
