    Ran across a deal on a BCM "Standard 16" M4 SOCOM" upper that was gently used and in good shape. The upper and barrel had been rattle canned FDE/sand or something. I cut off the front sight base and replaced the milspec barrel nut with a BCM KMR-A barrel nut and installed their 15" Keymod rail...

I did this with virtually no questions asked other than finish appearance and payment address. Sometime after I...

    Picked up my new NHC Bull today and I can't be more pleased and thrilled with how it turned out. The pistol was built by David Atchley with the following options. Serrated slide top. Ball cut radius. Fluted barrell hood Flat trigger. Fiber optic front sight. Entire gun blacked out with polished...

    I couldn't pass this one up. It's clean on the outside, and even cleaner on the inside. Slight high edge wear and very light browning on the grip strap are the detractors. Internally, parts show almost no finish wear, including barrel bed and locking lugs.

    I wrote this article for my website and thought I'd post it as well to generate some discussion. THE BEST HOME DEFENSE GUNS Posted on May 2, 2017 by Gunpowder Meditation “What is the best gun for home defense?” and “What’s the best home defense gun for my grandma/friend who isn’t into guns?”...
