Amazing Odin Works AR 15 accessories? 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 front grip is also another great accessory that is usually attached to the handguard. When shooting an AR-15, most people will typically hold the handguard under the bottom. Adding a front grip will help you gain a more comfortable hold on the gun, as well as help in recoil reduction. Whether it is a vertical fore grip, angled fore grip, or anything in between, a front grip can help you have a safe and reliable place to put your hand. Handguards also give you a place to attach accessories wherever you want them and what feels most comfortable to you and your style of shooting. Say for instance you attach a bipod for a stable rest. With many of the different mounting systems available, you can adjust and attach the bipod in the exact spot on the handguard that feels best for you. The same can be said with just about any attachment, including rifle slings.
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. Discover even more info at AR 15 Parts.
16” AR-15 Upper Assemblies : For many first time builders, the 16” AR-15 Upper Assemblies are the sweet spot. I’d go so far as to say, for most people, in most circumstances, a 16″ upper assembly is the ideal all-around choice. With this size you get the most out of the rifle from a ballistic standpoint. The gun will be softer shooting, the concussive blast present in the shorter barrels is not a huge factor, and it’s an overall very practical length for a wide variety of uses. If pressed on what length to go with, we always recommend the 16” AR 15 upper assemblies over any other length we sell at Black Rifle Depot.

Many polymer drop-in handguards will be made of two different pieces that will fit around the barrel. They are generally fastened together by a handguard cap towards the front, and secured by a delta ring assembly in the rear. They get their name from how easy it is to install them, or to “drop-in” a new one. Installing them is super easy, and can literally be done in less than a minute. Simply pull back on the spring loaded delta ring to remove the current handguard, follow the instructions on the new one and put it in almost in reverse of removing one and there you go! Brand new handguard in no time! Most drop-in polymer handguards are offered in different lengths, in order to accommodate the varying gas system lengths of whatever AR-15 they are going on. They are generally the cheapest option, but they do have one slight disadvantage. Because of their design, they incorporate a handguard cap that is usually in contact with the forward portion of the barrel. This can possibly affect accuracy, especially if using fore grips or bipods with the handguard. This is not always the case, but something to be aware of if precision accuracy concerns you.
