From The Vault: A Tour of Caleb's Personal AR-15

Author Caleb Savant
2 years ago

You've seen this AR-15 in a lot of our videos. Sometimes it just provides "atmosphere," sometimes it's used to demonstrate aspects of the AR-15 operating system. So many of you have asked about it that Brownells Gun Tech™ Caleb Savant finally gives us a tour of his favorite personal AR-15. He tells us about each part on the gun and explains why he chose it. Some highlights: The upper and lower receiver are a matched, machined-from-billet set from Midwest Industries (alas no longer in production). Elftmann AR-15 Service Trigger with extra-power hammer spring. A5-length Magpul UBR stock with a Geissele Super 42 carbine buffer and spring requiring a special spacer Caleb machined from a block of Delrin. Cold hammer-forged, chrome-lined, FN USA barrel paired with a mid-length gas system to make this rifle reliable and soft-recoiling. Streamlight ProTac 2 weapon light on a low, LOW Midwest Industries offset mount. Trijicon 1-4x LPVO anchored securely by an American Defense cantilever scope mount. What about that funky blue-anodized Odin Works extended mag release? Caleb explains how it got on his AR-15 - and why it stays there. More highlights: a suitably dirty Lantac bolt-carrier group, Midwest Industries 17½"" M-LOK handguard, Bravo Company pistol grip, Odin Works Atlas Muzzle Device, Patriot Ordnance Factory Tomahawk ambidextrous charging handle, and a Battle Arms Development BAD-ASS ambi safety selector.
