They may not look like much, but this is a full set of CiP spec headspace and chamber gauges for .223. They took 4 months to arrive and cost just over €1200!!! for the set, but they will be worth it and will ensure all our rifles conform to the current proofing standards.
Precision engineering to ensure that all rifles that leaving our workshop are within required tolerances to deliver accuracy, repeat-ability and most of all that they are safely proofed.
If you shop do around, don’t forget to ask our competition if they take the this responsibility to the same level of accuracy ?
A couple of Brothers in Arms for today
Finished this morning, a M16A1 retro build.
This iconic rifle style is familiar to everyone, and now that new manufacture retro parts are available builds such as this are once again possible.
This is as close to the original as I can make it with correct upper receiver, front and rear sights, flash hider and even the correct mag
Hope you like it (I’m sure you will) 🙂
It’s a BAR-15 in 6.5 Grendel. Chambered with the 6.5 Grendel II reamer, it has a 20″ Sassen Eng 1:8″ twist barrel in Med/Heavy profile, JP enhanced bolt assy, Troy 13″ railed fore-end, Magupl Gen 2 PRS stock, Ergo slimline grip and Geissele 2 stage DMR trigger. Muzzle is finished with a Tier One Tac Brake.
This lovely package is for a chap called Stan.
He wanted something to use both on his home range as well as take it out with the rest of his club members and enjoy some quality range time and (we hope) partake in a few rounds of CSR.
It has a 18″ Med weight .223 barrel chambered with our modified .223 Wylde reamer to CiP specs, and is supplied with a Magpul UBR stock and MOE grip, a Samson Evolution fore-end and Tier-One Tac Brake and Spartan suppressor.
As well as this it is fitted with a Harris 6-9″ bipod and for indoor practice, is complemented with a CMMG .22lr conversion kit.
To see what’s going on and keep it within budget, it has been fitted with a Leupold Mark AR 4-12×40 scope and Vortex mount.
If you’d like to be like Stan too then pick up the phone, Bradley Arms are standing by waiting to take your order.
This BAR-22 was finished off today.
It’s the first of the new batch currently being built.
I am calling it the Model 305M as the barrel is 305mm from breech face to muzzle face, which effectively gives it the look of a 10.2″ barrel, more or less the same as the MK18 CQBR, the M denoting it had a mid length handguard. OAL as pictured is 26 1/4″ or 665mm.
The barrel is a Lothar Walter in Special Rifle Steel with integral feed ramp and chambered in .22 Bentz.
Internals are from CMMG and I’m very pleased with the outcome.
There should be another along tomorrow.
A little update on the two 6.5 Creedmoors from last week, I have just been sent this test target by one of the customers. 4 shots through one hole, and the one above (behind the tape) has 16 shots through it.
Nice work Al
This is something I built some time back to commemorate the 250th Bradley Arms marked rifle.
It’s a replica of the original CAR-15/XM177
With a 12″ barrel in original “pencil” profile and fitted with an authentic .625″ FSB and Nodak Spud A1 upper receiver. I made the flash hider as close to the original spec as I could find and modified an original CAR style stock and buffer tube.
To complement all this, it comes with 2×20 and 2x 30rd USGI mags and for semi-auto fun to finish it off, a CMMG .22 conversion unit and magazines.
Very happy with the build….might even get around to building another some time.
Today’s job, lowering the Picatinny rail on a DPMS Hi-Rider upper receiver. Hopefully the customer can now get a decent eye relief and enjoy his shooting even more !
Just finished this Sako 75 in 6.5×55, New Sassen 1:8 20″ barrel in #4 profile. Chambered with a new reamer from Geoff Kolbe at Border and threaded for Customers own Ase Utra SL5. New keyless bolt shroud and correspondingly modified firing pin fitted and all finished in Armor Black.
Ideal for hill walking after Reds in Scotland
At Bradley Arms its not all about AR15’s, we work with all types of firearms.
Something from today, an Armalite AR10 in .308. Barrel has been shortened to 16.5″ and threaded 5/8″ x 24 UNEF. Bradley Arms muzzle brake, Geissele High Speed NM trigger and Vltor Emod rifle stock, fore-end is a Daniel Defense 7.62 Lite rail. Scope is a US Optics 1.8-10 in a American Defense Mfg 3″ Recon mount.
Paint is Taupe, a 50/50 mix of Multicam Green and Troy Coyote Tan Cerakote®
An update to let everyone know that the Battle of Britain Hurricane tribute rifle is now finished. Thanks to a friend who cut the decals, they have now been applied and sealed with 3 coats of Cerakote Clear Coat.
I’m very happy with the finished article and look forward to shooting and showing it around.
Today we had a CMMG .308 in for the side charger treatment.
New upper receivers currently being manufactured for Bradley Arms at Tier One Engineering.
As we’ve been preparing for the Civilian Service Rifle championships, we haven’t had much time to post any build pics in a while, so here goes.
The scope arrived today to finish this off. That’s a Sightron Series 3 in 6-24×50 and is mounted in a ADM Recon mount finished in their Dark Earth colour, which I think contrasts nicely with the Troy Coyote Tan Cerakote on the rifle.
The Rifle is a 18″ Med weight .223 Wylde chambered barrel in a genuine NSW profile, UBR and MOE grip and Geissele Hi Speed NM trigger. Handguard is a ADM 15″ Lowlight. Plastic parts are finished in Coyote Tan too. The customer saw my own one and he said that colour shouldn’t be a deciding factor in making a purchase, but he was sold on it.
One of the challenges was getting the serial number and logo re-lasered after painting….and that was easier said than done as that Cerakote is pretty tough, and it took 3 runs on the laser. We then colour filled it and I’m really pleased with the result
