Hi, Really enjoyed the Mega Arms show. Especially hearing about the Mega Arms MAHTEN AR. You've done one show on the AR-10 (ARP-033) be great to hear more on the AR-10s just like the MAHTEN. Remember the AR-15 is the son of the AR-10.


BTW.....Thanks to OTIS for the giveaways and thanks to Brownells for the support.


Hi guys,

I'd like to hear a show from you guys on the topic of today's AR15 innovators and their products.  Let's be honest, most AR15's and the individual components that make up AR15s all pretty much have the same form, fit and function.  Who out there today is really bringing innovation to market?

Examples for me would be:

1) Seekins Precision Lower Receiver:

This lower not only looks super cool and has design features not found on most other lower receivers but it also has functional upgrades like ambi bolt drop, elimination of roll pins, hammers, punches and replaced them with custom screw in dowel pins, an upper tensioning set screw, a set screw for trigger reset, relocated and retained the rear take down pin detent under the grip.

2) Daniel Defense's Integrally Surpressed 300 blackout rifle:

This rifle incorporates the features that most people would have to piece together individually.  You can now purchase a .30 caliber rifle, with a built in supressor and no longer than it would normally be without the surpressor.

What innovations do you guys have your eyes on?
