G&G Reader Gun of the Week

Featured this week on Guns and Gunsmiths is an really nice AR-15 built by subscriber Brett Hale of Kayenta, AZ. Featuring a Florida Arms Manufacturing Co. lower with Bushmaster lower internals, a Bushmaster Predator 18”, 1:8 twist, fluted heavy barrel, a Bushmaster A2 buttstock and a Magpul FDE grip. Brett also added a Simmons scope.

Nice job Brett. Your weapon will be featured all this week in the header image at the top of the website.

Got a great build you would like to show off here on Guns and Gunsmiths? Send me a good photo and a description by email and we will let you know if we can use it.
