Listener Questions

Jason (Supporter) - Oh I really like them I have a couple of their lowers and uppers waiting become rifles. Are they going to do anything California compliant or do they have any new accessories on the Horizon that they can talk about. Anything for 6.5 or 7mm in the future

Tim - Can J.D. at least not make drooling sounds while talking to them. It's extremely distracting. 😂

Tyler - How do they manage to keep quality so high and price so reasonable?
Bobby - Why haven't I been chosen to win the monthly rifle giveaway yet?

Matthew - What started the monthly build sets and how many different variants have there been?

Thurmon - Do they have any plans on getting into the 9mm or other PCC variants anytime soon?
Dave - Aero sells an upper that doesn't use the standard barrel nut. It takes a special handguard. I wonder what the advantage of that design is over the mil-spec one (which they also offer).

Charlie - Pls talk about the differences/ advantages of the new M4E1 lower/upper. (Bought a cyber Monday special.) What type of build would it be most suitable for? ie: Better suited supporting a heavier barrel or a larger caliber? Help me, I've bought another lower, and I can't get an upper.

AR-15 Podcast 230 - Ballistic Advantage

Welcome to another episode of the AR15 Podcast.  Ballistic Advantage joins us on this podcast to talk barrels.

Main Topic:

Tyler - I have one of their 11.5" mid length barrels. Would they recommend an adjustable gas block if I end up going the suppressor route, or would I be OK doing a normal gas block. Gas blow back is main concern.

Austin - I have an assembled upper and 14.5" 300 blackout barrel from them waiting to be put together. Why should I pick their bolt carrier group?

John - 20” rifle gas hanson profile 223 Wylde barrel. Are they coming out with one or should I just get the fluted 223. Thx

Waccamaw Scout - 20" DMR in 6.5 grendel, any input from shooters about accuracy and what range at they shooting them at?

John - I know they make 5.45 barrels. Any plans to follow in Faxon's footsteps and make AK barrels? (I know that's not AR related, but I'm curious)

Chad - In their opinion, what is the best type/style of rifling?

AR-15 Podcast 225 - Mad Dog Weapon Systems

Welcome to Episode 225 of the AR15 Podcast. Tonight we sit down with Mark Kexel of Mad Dog Weapon System to discuss their wide range of AR calibers.

Pre Order!!!! The Shirts!

https://patriotpatch.co/collections/ar15-podcast

What’s Up?

Reed

JD

Mark Kexel

Main Topic:

Who is Mark

How was MDWS born

.277 Wolverine

7mm Valkyrie Ar

.358 Yeti

30 Sabercat

6mm-mongoose

Questions….

Tyler - Any crazy calibers they’re nuts over? Like top 5-10 lol
And the calibers intended purpose and maybe some unintended uses for them. Are they primarily focusing on the smaller platform (Ar15) or will they do work with the larger ones? I’m also kind of looking for a wildcat that makes use of unusual combinations of brass/bullets/powder. Just as something different. Also thank you mad dog for coming on!

John - What can we expect as far as factory support for ammunition, firearm parts, and reloading components going forward

Daniel -  Ask if the .277 works well in belt fed weapons.

Jeff - Best caliber choice in ar15 platform for whitetail . Bullet weight from 90 to 120 grains ..
Range out to 200 yds. 
I'm leaning towards something in 6mm for bullet selection ..

Smokin Gun Labradors - hat about the 257 Ocelot?

Main Topic:

       Tell us about yourself. Your backstory

        New Products AR-related

        ARAK

        Barrels & Hand Guards

        What's coming up in the future?

        Glock Barrels.... - Not AR Related... but pretty cool

 


 Listener Questions....



Reed will help with these questions also.

Gary - Recommended pistol barrel lengths, bullet weights and should your gas block be adjustable to help tune.

Tyler - I would be interested in any info in regards to barrel length and twist rate. Or are those 2 things mutually exclusive? Like, do shorter barrels need a faster twist rate?

Jared -  Status on ARAK-21 items (handguard extension, other caliber BAUs) and ARAK-31

JT - What degree of degradation in accuracy, if any, happens in a pencil profiled barrel as the barrel heats up

Tyler - Melonite vs chrome lined!

Roan - Can I order an assembled upper from them? They literally have everything I want.

When can we see a 10mm AR barrel
