New platform for AR-15
Those who managed to see a rifle from an American company say that weapon more like some kind of raw piece, which still needs to be worked on. However, upon closer scrutiny, the specialists change their point of view, realizing that this particular platform option is suitable for professionals who are free to equip the AR-15 with those accessories that they consider necessary.
This approach will allow many shooters to save. After all, usually the company itself promotes a package of accessories, many of which the owner of the weapon will never need. If he himself has the ability to complete the rifle with the necessary additions, then this is exactly what a person needs, who knows a lot about saving and options for the optimal configuration of small arms.
Before the Chassis platform appeared, the American company WMD Guns of Stuart was engaged in the implementation of the Beast platform. The new platform uses special nickel-boron compounds for anti-corrosion coating of parts. The bolt, bolt group, separate parts of the receiver, a buffer tube with a gas block, a loading handle are those parts of the weapon that are covered with a special connection of nickel and boron. By the way, the company declares that everyone will be able to order other parts of the platform with an anti-corrosion coating.
The company conducted work on the use of so-called nitrided bore weapons in this version. This trunk, as shown by numerous studies, has a greater resource, and also allows you to shoot with greater accuracy than the barrel with chrome plating. It is nitrided trunks today are gaining great popularity among professional shooters. Global manufacturers of weapons do not leave such a trend without attention.
Machining used to perform the upper part of the receiver, the lower part is made using classical stamping. Both aluminum alloy is used in the upper and lower parts, the labeling of which in the USA looks like 7075-Т6. In this case, the trigger mechanism of the weapon undergoes special polishing.
The length of the barrel of such a weapon in terms of millimeters is 406,4 mm. The cutting steps are different. If we consider the platform with the basic configuration, then it is “sharpened” under the cartridge of the standard 5.56 NATO / .223 Remington. But there is also the option of using .204 Ruger or .300 AAC cartridges.
WMD Guns of Stuart claims that such an AR-15 platform will be sold at a price of US $ 999. This is already on 600 dollars cheaper than the previous platform. This is how much money is offered to save when buying a basic version of a weapon with the possibility of its subsequent configuration with suitable accessories.
