Odin Works AR 15 parts by blackrifledepot.com? The Colt AR 15 very soon found its way into military use in the early 1960’s, offering shooters in the United States Air Force and Special Forces a select-fire option. When the United States got into involvement with Vietnam in 1963, it soon became clear that Springfield Armory was not going to be able to keep up with the production of the standard M14 battle rifles. This was the perfect opportunity for the AR 15 platform. Many people proposed expanding the production of the M14 to some other companies, but the idea was eventually scrapped because of the high cost of the M14 to manufacture. It was a great rifle, but it cost a lot to make, its cartridge required more resources, and it was largely considered overkill for fights of 300 yards or less.
A mounting system will allow you to install a wide variety of accessories to your AR 15, such as slings, sights, lasers, lights, bipods, forward grips, and whatever else you may want on your firearm. In today’s market, there are three main types of mounting systems: Picatinny, keymod, and M-LOK. For many years, the picatinny rail system has been the standard and preferred system used by both military and law enforcement. This system uses dovetail angles and grooves to allow you to mount anything you want so long as it is compatible. These system can also be used for the quad rail, or “quad” when there are four rails on each side of the rifle: top, bottom, left and right. The downside to using the picatinny system, and why it is slowly losing popularity year after year, is how heavy it is. Because the other two systems use machine cut-outs for attaching accessories, they are much lighter.
Cold hammer forged barrels come with a big list of advantages, which is what makes them so popular. This process produces an incredibly strong barrel, and they typically have the longest lifespan when compared to other barrels. They have consistent rifling grooves and cuts, which in turn makes them very accurate. One of the biggest disadvantages to cold hammer forged barrels are how expensive the equipment is for the gun manufacturers to buy. This used to make them more expensive, but with more and more companies going to this process, prices have come down. The only other possible downside is that a high-end cut rifled barrel may be a tad bit more accurate. Find more details at AR 15 Parts.

For most handguards, the two most commonly used materials are polymer and aluminum. Both of these materials are very durable, and aluminum will usually going to be the stronger of the two. Aluminum can, however, emit a little more heat during an extended shooting session than a polymer handguard. Aluminum is much more resistant to heat, although it will heat up itself and can be hot under extreme conditions. If you do a lot of high volume shooting, aluminum is a great option for you. Polymer handguards will usually have a heat shield constructed of either steel or aluminum that will separate the actual polymer from the barrel. This helps dissipate the heat generated from the barrel, and there are also polymer handguards that will have a steel or aluminum framework to lighten them up and provide structural durability. Polymer does, however, have a lower melting point than aluminum. While it is super rare, under continuous and extreme firing, the heat from your barrel could warp or even melt the polymer handguard. Polymer does, however, provide a little more impact resistance than aluminum.
