Jarred - When are they going to make 7.62x39 “AR” mags?

Jesse - Remember when you invented the Pmag? That was awesome!

Curtis - M&P mags in the future?. Also would love some 223 AK mags but doubt there is enough market.

Craig - What stock would they recommend for an AR platform rifle that will be 50% hunting 50% bench shooting.

Brad - With the 224 valkyrie gaining in popularity do they plan on making a 6.8 based mag for standard mag well.

Nick - While I would love to ask when the next series of pistol mags is coming out. The better question is are they ever going to get in the complete firearm game again, they had some really interesting designs that would be neat to see them move on.

Chris - I see 9mm glock mags are on the way for my NFA C9, but is there a big enough market to make anything for the C5?

SITREP:   

  1. Mags for Toms

         Last week, Toms shoes founder, Blake Mycoskie, publicly stated that Toms would donate $5 million to various anti-gun organizations under the guise of “universal background checks to end gun violence.” The reality of the situation is that the concept of a “universal background check” does nothing to stop criminals from getting ahold of firearms, as it only affects the law abiding.
To combat this and take a stand for all Pro-Second Amendment citizens, Adams Arms launched a campaign to send a message that gun owners will not sit by idle and allow the continued degradation of the Rights of the American People. Jens Krogh, the VP of Sales and Marketing for Adams Arms, said the company believes in more freedom for Americans… not less.
The original buyback campaign was to send a free 30rd magazine to anyone (10rd magazines to those in restricted states) who sent a pair of new or used Toms shoes (postmarked) before January 1st, 2019 and burn the Toms via Instagram live, but Adams Arms had a slight change of plans.
“Originally we were going to burn the shoes, but decided that’s no way to treat something that could be used again by homeless veterans,” VP of Sales & Marketing, Jens Krogh, said.
“But then we thought to ourselves… we should at least make the shoes less hippie. So we’re going to alter them with a pro Second Amendment message and THEN donate them to several worthy causes for veterans and impoverished people living in oppressive countries where they do not have the freedoms we cherish.”
Here’s how it works. Send Adams Arms your shoes at:
Adams Arms
Mags for TOMS
1551 Gunn Highway
Odessa FL 33556
You must include a note with your shipping address and email address. It must be legal to ship a 30 round mag to your state, or if you live in a restricted state, Adams Arms will send you a 10 round magazine.
Before you send them… post a picture with #shoeburn #magsfortoms and #shallnotbeinfringed to spread the word.

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!

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

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!
